Tips for Submitting Ads

Please indicate which items (photos/artwork) are to be returned. Please enclose adequate postage and a self-addressed envelope.

If you are sending in photos or artwork that needs to be scanned remember that original photographs (Ex. show photographs, other professional photographs, snapshots, etc.) ALWAYS reproduce the best. Reprinted photographs & inkjet photographs reproduce the poorest.

The following information was extracted from a document compiled by the show superintendent, MBF-Inc, Guidelines for Submitting Catalog Advertising Material to MB-F, Inc.. Please do not call or send your ads to MBF directly. If after reading the information on this page and the superintendents document you have difficulty creating your ad, please contact Susie Royer for help.

  • Use a program to layout your Ad. The simplest one I know of is Microsoft Word. See the superintendents document for other choices of programs, also ones they do not want you to use.
  • Pages sizes for your layout.
    Full page - 4 1/2 inches by 7 3/16 inches
    Half page - 4 1/2 inches by 3 9/16 inches
    1/4 page - 4 1/2 inches by 1 3/4 inches
  • Embed images in layout document to show placement and desired cropping.
  • Save and send the layout document to the NSS Advertising Chairman.
  • Send a printed copy of the ad also. If your layout document can not be opened MBF will have to try to duplicate.
  • Use high quality digital images for photos and artwork. Send all embedded images in the layout document as separate files.

    Formats: (sizes are after cropping)
