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
professionally designed custom ad at no extra charge that presents your dog to its best
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!).

SUBMITTING ADS AND PHOTOS BY E-MAIL OR ON DISK, PLEASE READ THE
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 recreate
it. We can also accept ads created in Quark Xpress, Adobe Illustrator,
or Photoshop. 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
