INSTRUCTIONS & HOW TO RESERVE YOUR AD SPACE
**PLEASE READ PRIOR TO RESERVING YOUR AD SPACE**
The State Organization of Georgia and host chapter Beta Lambda Lambda look forward to producing a Souvenir Booklet for the 59th Georgia State Meeting that will uphold the high standards of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. and amplify the brand. As such, we are requesting Print-ready PDF format (Portable Document Format) or Camera-ready format wherever possible, appropriately sized for the ad you want to purchase and formatted as you wish it to be displayed in the souvenir booklet. We encourage ad purchasers to work with brothers within their chapters who are skilled in design or to enlist a graphic designer. Optimally, ads will have been created with a software program commonly used in the printing industry, such as InDesign (Adobe), Illustrator (Adobe), Photoshop (Adobe), Quark XPress, etc., and exported or saved in a commonly used file format, such as EPS, PDF and sometimes TIFF. If hiring a graphic artist is not an option, nowadays there are low-cost high-quality online platforms such as Canva, PicMonkey, and LunaPic that can produce high-quality designs with out-of-the-box, easy-to-use templates. If in doubt, call us and we'll help! Meantime, here are some general guidelines to ensure your ad is ready for us:
Avoid everyday PDFs, as the everyday PDF that is generally exchanged throughout the design process is a lower quality PDF (to keep the file size down for emailing). This general PDF is usually suitable for reviewing, emailing, and using online – not necessarily for professional printing. The most obvious problem with these files, if they were commercially printed, would be the images potentially appearing pixelated and not sharp. Colors would possibly not be what was expected.
Desired images are high-resolution JPG, TIFF or EPS format
Resolution of the images is 300dpi or higher
Bleed has been added to the document to ensure that where the images or design bleed off the edge of the page, you won’t see a white gap if the trim is not 100% accurate (if applicable)
Crop marks are present (if applicable)
Ad purchasers will be able to upload their artwork and graphics at this site, but if you have questions or you need support reserving your ad space, please contact our 59th State Meeting Marketing Chair, Ken Morris at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at (678) 758-8308. We're here to help!
The deadline for ad submissions is Thursday, September 1, 2022. We ask that you submit your ads as early as possible to ensure quality and the requisite time for edits and refinements.
