Ad Design Services
Advertisers can submit ideas, logos, and company information to our 3-proof process. Tails Pet Media Group, Inc. designers will create most ads for $200. The ad will be archived if advertiser decides to run it in future issues at no charge. Repeat advertisers with ads requiring structural or creative updates will be charged a nominal fee – contact your representative for more details. Repeat advertisers may run ads already archived with Tails with no retrieval costs.
Color Ads on Newsprint
Although Tails makes every effort to guarantee a great reproduction, due to the nature of newsprint and the printing process, we cannot guarantee exact color reproduction or registration. TPMG will not make adjustments to the price of the ad unless the color clearly diminishes the clarity of the product or obscures advertiser’s contact information.
Digital File Requirements
We strongly recommend creating your ad in Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Photoshop.
All provided ads must meet publisher’s set specifications and submission deadlines or will be subject to additional charges.
Submitted Illustrator files should not have locked or hidden items or layers. All fonts need to be converted to outlines. Export file as JPG, TIFF, or PDF or save your file as an EPS for MAC format. Be sure to include all placed art, images, and fonts (printer&screen) in one single folder.

We do not accept ads created in Microsoft Applications.
