All advertising materials are due no later than the published materials closing date. Landscape Architecture Magazine (LAM) accepts high resolution (at least 300 dpi) PDF, JPG, and TIF formats only. Files must be less than 10MB or they will not be received. LAM does not accept film or camera-ready art. Files must be prepared as CMYK. Embedded images must also be in the CMYK color space. All RGB images must be converted to CMYK mode in an image editor, such as Adobe Photoshop, before being inserted into your layout application.

LAM policy requires advertisers to submit a GRAcol2006 certified proof. By choosing not to supply a GRAcol2006 certified proof with your ad, the color reproduction of the ad will be based on industry standard best practices to achieve as accurate color as possible from the supplied digital file. It you do not supply a GRAcol2006 certified proof, a laser content proof will be required for content only – failure to do so may jeopardize the final content within your ad.

*Please do not use fonts Kalinga, Kartika, and Segoe as they are unprintable.
