Acceptable Materials

Specifications to help us maintain the highest possible reproduction quality for your ad:

Do not submit ads done in Microsoft Publisher or Excel. We prefer .pdf format for materials, but can also accept .jpg or .tif versions. Use 200 to 300 ppi (pixels per inch) to accommodate our 100-line screen with a 30% gain. All fonts must be embedded in the file. We use a CMYK format. *Black text MUST be at 100% black (100% K only) for proper reproduction, NO OTHER color layers. Digital photographs must be 200 to 300 ppi and large in size. Internet images at 72 ppi will not reproduce in newsprint.

Effective Ad Layout Tips

  • Headline Focus: Be concise and entice the reader to read the rest of the copy.
  • Typefaces: Utilize bold, italics and spacing without mixing a variety of typefaces.
  • White Space: Make sure there is enough open space in your ad, not too busy.
  • Reason: Create a sense of urgency; give a reason to buy now.
  • Simplify: Say what you want to say but keep it simple, not wordy.
  • Images: Logos and photos attract attention and are recognizable.

Classifieds

Two line ads up to 20 words each are free. Extra runs, additional words or features are extra. Call for a quote or find the form online at Coastalbreezenews.com. All display advertisers receive classified line ads free of charge.
