Disks:
The Volunteer Firefighter™ is composed in the latest version of Adobe InDesign on Macintosh

into Adobe InDesign (pdf, eps, tif, etc.). All fonts (screen and post script) and high-resolution artwork must accompany the ad. CDs and DVDs are acceptable media. There will be an additional $100 minimum charge for any other file formats or media that need to be converted.

Artwork:
A minimum charge of $100 will be added for assembling extra elements or altering your ad and an
earlier deadline will be in effect. 300 dpi artwork accepted. Ad prices (on next page) reflect cost for digital, print-ready art, submitted either electronically or on CD and/or DVD. Any ad submitted that needs to be altered in any way is subject to an additional minimum $100 charge.

Borders:
We reserve the right to add borders to any ad too small, or which “floats” in its reserved space unless
otherwise specified and agreed to. Any ad deemed significantly oversized will be run in the next larger ad size space and will be billed accordingly.

Any CD/DVD will be stored for 12 months and then destroyed unless prior return instructions are
