Electronic Advertising Guidelines

Effective January 2018

Steel Marketplace magazine is fully set-up to receive electronic advertising via email, FTP or by disk, in either Macintosh or PC platforms, MAC is preferred. Note PC Users: We will accept properly prepared EPS and PDF files that require no modification.

The following is a list of procedures, software, and hardware which we support. Steel Marketplace will not be liable for any errors resulting from incorrect advertising materials received from an outside source which do not meet these specifications. We will attempt to ensure trouble-free output but the liability rests with the supplier of the advertising materials.

Electronic Material Deadlines


Your electronic advertising material must be received by Steel Marketplace no later than 4 days prior to magazine output. If for any reason the material cannot meet this deadline you must speak with your representative on alternatives.

Preparing files


To avoid reproduction problems:

  • Include all printer and screen fonts and supporting graphics with your file. If fonts are not included, Steel Marketplace will attempt to match the missing fonts.
  • Ensure all color is set for process separation /CMYK Printing. Knockouts and colour trapping are the responsibility of the advertiser.
  • Confirm that the file is prepared to the size which it has been booked.
  • If the ad is to run black & white, be sure that there are no colour components.
  • Placed image reductions of more than 20% are not recommended.
  • Ensure all images are in either TIFF or EPS format. When saving a file in EPS format, in the EPS Options Window, select Macintosh (8 bit/pixel) Preview and Binary Encoding. Do not use JPEG compression of any kind. Leave all other options unchecked. When saving the file in a TIFF format, set the Byte Order to Macintosh. Do not user LZW Compression.
