Let us design your ad!

Complimentary graphic design is included with each ad.

Our experienced designers can create an ad from scratch or work with your design elements.

Please reference these specifications if submitting your own creative:

  • The Shorthorn is printed on newsprint at 85 lines per inch. Please ensure that the resolution of all photos is at least 170 ppi (B&W logos and line art should be at least 600 ppi) for high-quality reproduction.
  • Please refer to the ad's dimensions on PAGE 6 when creating your document; files sized incorrectly will be resized proportionally in one dimension and "floated" in the space purchased.
  • PDF files are preferred; use the PDF/X-1a or “Press Ready” presets if available for best compatibility. Please use CMYK color mode and be sure all fonts are either embedded or converted to outlines.
  • We can also accept .JPEG, .PNG and .TIFF image files (with sufficient resolution) as well as Microsoft Word documents if fonts are supplied. We cannot accept files made in Microsoft Publisher (please convert the file to a PDF).
  • Email Production Manager Adam Drew (adrew@uta.edu) with any questions about files, formats or specifications.
