Digital file requirements:
All files must be saved in one of these formats: .EPS, .TIFF, .JPEG, or .PDF. Final resolution should be 300 DPI. We ask that you supply a SWOP-calibrated proof on four-color ads. FCW will not be held liable for color mistakes if a SWOP-calibrated proof is not supplied. Your office printer printouts are not acceptable for color match, but we do ask that you send us a printout of your ad, four-color and black and white, so we may have something to proof against.
