Advertising is easy in Poodle Variety!
All you need to do is send us a photo, what you want to say, and payment and we do the rest to give you a
professionally designed custom ad
at no extra charge that presents your dog to its best advantage.

If you’ve seen and ad or typestyle in a previous issue that you’d like us to use as a guideline when setting up your ad, just give us the issue and page number and we’ll follow that example. Or, you can send us a very rough sketch of what you’d like when you mail your photo. If you are not sure about the wording for your ad, just send us all the information you’d like included and we’ll word it properly for you (after 40 years of doing this, it comes pretty easily to us!).

1. POODLE VARIETY is produced on a Mac platform utilizing InDesign as our publishing program; therefore, it is of little use to us if your ad was created on your PC other than for us to re-create it. Our magazine trim size is the standard 8-1/2" x 11". The "live" image area should be 7-1/2" x 10" except for bleeds. Allow 1/8" over the trim size for bleeds. Be sure to allow gutter room for perfect binding as well as trim.
2. Computer media and print media are NOT the same! What looks excellent on a computer screen can end up looking pretty bad once it's printed. We can work with almost all photos—be they snapshots, Polaroids or digital photos. We will reject any photos which will not reproduce well—too dark, too grainy, too out of focus. Photos should be scanned at 300 dpi at the approximate size they will be printed in the magazine and saved as JPEGs if you are e-mailing them to us or TIFFs if you are sending them on a CD. When e-mailing photos, please attach just one photo per e-mail. We have a large selection of typefaces available, but include typefaces if they are part of your logo or absolutely necessary to your design treatment.
3. We reserve the right to edit your ad to make it conform to Poodle Variety’s specs. If submitting it "camera ready" and it is not properly prepared, we may have to make some changes.
4. If sending in "printer ready," it MUST be editable by us to correct typos or be certain that our printing specs are met.
5. If you are submitting the same ad to different publications, be sure the ad you send to Poodle Variety conforms to Poodle Variety’s specs.
