For the yearbook section, please send photos that are 1024×768 AND LARGER please. We can always scale down an image but scaling up an image will make it pixlated or blurry.

There’s a workflow to this publication and dates that they have to be to the printer by. It would add a lot of time to the process to give everyone a proof of the yearbook page they are on. The yearbook section is free for co-ops. Many co-ops also buy an ad so they can have their ad with all of their details exactly as they want it.
If we have to make changes to text we do try and make sure people know how that’s been edited down to (someone else sent in several pages of text for example when we have max a half page) for the yearbook section of the publication. We want things to be accurate.
We can accept files up to 25MB in size HOWEVER your email service provider might max out at 5MB. There are some other options for getting larger files to us including:
dropsend.com: http://www.dropsend.com/ is the only one that does not require an account. It’s also free and quick to use with easy to follow instructions.
If none of these are an option or your IT department has blocked you from accessing these, please contact us for information on uploading via FTP instead if the file can not be emailed.
As always – all ads get a confirmation when we’ve saved them to our systems and checked them in so if you have sent something and haven’t heard back from us in over a week, shoot us a quick email to make sure you shared the file properly!
Our ad sizes as well as file formats accepted are all outlined on our Advertise > Ad Submission Guidelines page
Through the National Co-op Directory, we offer two options:
- minor changes to last year’s ad such as change the hours and we charge $10
- OR a very basic ad design: Logo left side, text right side, no rounds of revisions unless there’s a typo, for $20.
As far as bleeds go, consider the published ad sizes the safe area and typically you will add 1/2″ to each side that’s visible and a minimum of a 1/4″ on each side that’s bleed.
FULL AND HALF PAGE EXAMPLES GIVEN BELOW
A full page ad with bleed would be:
- 7.5″x10″ safe area area that you should keep the text and main content of your ad within.
- 8.5″x11″ visible the final page size is 8.5” x 11” once finished and cut so this is the area that will be seen.
- 9″x11.5″ bleed minimum (or 9.5″x12″ bleed preferred) this is the area that will likely be cut but should have color from your ad so that if the cut isn’t dead on, the ad color will still come to the edge.
Half page ad with bleeds would be:
- 7.5″x4.9″ safe area
- 8.5″x5.15″ visible
- 9″x5.4″ bleed
