The preferred format for digital advertising files is QuarkXpress for Macintosh. Files supplied in Illustrator, Freehand, Photoshop, PC QuarkXpress and PageMaker formats are also acceptable, however advertisements furnished in these formats may incur production and/or conversion charges.
Ads supplied in QuarkXpress should be collected for output to include all necessary supporting files. Only postscript fonts are accepted and these should also be submitted with the ad.
Film may also be furnished. Negatives must be right-reading, emulsion side down. All halftone negatives are to be screened to a 150 line screen. An accurate proof must be provided. Photos and images should be
scanned at 300 dpi.
Electronic transmission of ads can be sent via FTP using a FTP client or your web browser. Call for URL information.
Deadline for advertising copy requiring production work is the 10th of each month prior to cover date of the publication (i.e. June 10 for July edition). Camera-ready material must be received by The Harness Edge no later than the 15th of each month. No cancellation accepted after closing date. If advertising copy is not received the publisher reserves the right to repeat advertiser’s last advertisement.
Black and white rates only are subject to agency discount of 15% when final film is received (electronic files included). Additional production charges may apply if changes or corrections are required. If it is necessary to prepare layouts or produce copy, no commission is allowed.
This section of The Harness Edge serves as a collection area of services and goods for the racing industry. Various sizes of smaller classified type advertisements are available. Call for further details.
