Graphics for all "Virtual Ads" - Premium Position, Chamber Champion Section,  Classified Display, Directory Sponsorships

Images must be of high quality 300 DPI saved and submitted as PDF, JPG or GIF. Size and crop graphic files in their original application. Avoid sizing graphics converted to JPG or GIF to produce a better quality image and reduce the chance of error. Assuming the graphics you send adhere to the correct sizes, they should appear exactly as you send them.  All "virtual ads" will run for a continuous 12 month time period from initial publication on the CDs.


Graphics for all "Printed Ads" - CD Front Cover, CD Inside Tray Card, CD Back Cover Sponsorship Logos, CD Inserts

Images must be of high quality 300 DPI saved and submitted as flattened Adobe Photoshop™ files or as PDF. It is critical that you do not send Adobe Photoshop™ files with "layers" in them, as this will cause issues with font attributes. Please allow for 1/8" bleed margin for CD Inside Tray Card and CD Inserts. This publication is produced using four-color process colors only (CMYK). If you do not have access to Adobe Photoshop™ contact us for options.



All other Classified Display Listings will use the same text font and format, with no "font option." Use of "special characters" and other symbols is not permitted.  


Acceptable Ad Design

Ads must be produced with a border or be self-contained. Ad size must be the same as purchased, i.e. column(s) width by vertical inches (please refer to published dimensions). Ads must be submitted at the exact size the ad is to run per published dimensions.


The Chamber Membership Directory will output client’s work according to these specifications. The client assumes all responsibility for files that do not output correctly due to errors or omissions in specifications. Files requiring correction will incur charges of $95 per hour, for which you will be billed. Thank you in advance for your business. We are excited to work with you and look forward to delivering great results.
