Frequently Asked Questions

Information for print directory advertisers and graphic designers.

Rotary Print Directory Ads

How do Ad graphics and layout work?

We do not have the services of an in-house graphic artist but can help with typing and straightforward layout where needed and can handle a range of formats. For any major creative work however, we recommend the use of a professional graphic artist who understands the technical aspects of commercial colour printing and will be able to provide a ”ready to insert” PDF file (CMYK colour, correct size, high resolution).

What if I have changes to my current advert(s)?

We are sometimes unable to make changes to adverts that have been previously given to us “ready to insert”  as images. Changes may need to be made on the original working documents and then forwarded again as a “ready to insert” file, preferably a PDF.

Are there discounts for multiple Ads?

There are discounted prices for adverts copied with no changes to other categories. There is also a discounted price for not-for-profit clubs, groups and organisations.

How do we send our adverts?

Your files can be emailed to [email protected] or you can provide the files on a thumbdrive at the office. The address is Office 4, 101 Bussell Hwy, Margaret River.

What are the payment options?

Your invoices will outline several options for making payments. Please finalise by 31 August to ensure inclusion. Payments by instalments may be negotiated with before the due date of 31 Aug.

Is my Ad included in the online directory?

All Rotary Directory advertisers will have basic details listed free-of-charge in the Business Search section of this site and can optionally upgrade and enhance these online entries.

TEXT ONLY ADVERTS (Basic and Eighth Page)

Details of Basic Listings and Eighth-page adverts can be forwarded to us via email, post or you can drop it in to office 4, 101 Bussell Highway, Margaret River WA 6285. We will apply our standard fonts and formats. Basic Listings can have up to 6 lines and Eighth-Page adverts can have up to 12 lines.  Keep in mind that the business name may be taking up 2, 4 or even 6 of these lines depending on the number of characters.

GRAPHIC ADVERTS (Quarter, Half & Full Page)

Graphic Adverts can be either landscape (125 mm x 40mm) or Portrait (60mm x 80mm). They can be black & white or colour, have your own choice of font & layout, and they can include graphics and/or photos. If you supply your own advertisement, please provide as a print ready PDF and make sure it meets the size and print criteria below.

Size and Print Criteria

Please provide Graphic Adverts as a print ready PDF file, meeting the following criteria:

– Four-colour process CMYK and not RGB colour space
– Black text is 100% black and not a mix of CMYK
– White text is not set to overprint
– Fonts are embedded (or converted to outlines so no fonts are needed)
– Images are embedded in the file
– All scans resolution are 300 dpi at 100% of the final image size
– Border is the size of advert

Images

Any images supplied should be high enough resolution for quality printing (300 dpi), but keep in mind that high resolution cannot fix a poor image.

Note that images prepared for the internet are usually less than 100 dpi and are not high enough resolution for printing. Vector images are preferable.

Colour

Commercial printing is very different to printing something from your computer. Matching your colours can be difficult as your home computer and commercial printing work with different colour systems.

We work with CMYK colours – RGB is only for digital colour.

Fonts

When you supply your advert to us it will generally have an embedded subsection of your fonts for printing. If we need to edit it we will need these fonts on our system or will need to replace the fonts with ours.

We prefer that you do not convert fonts to outlines.

PDF

The preferred way to provide us with your advertisement is as a high quality, “ready-to- insert” PDF with settings for High Quality Print or Press Quality.

Other Formats

PDF is the only format accepted.
