SBCA Magazine Acceptable Advertising Materials

Digital Materials Required: Please provide files via email (15 MB limit) or cloud sharing (contact staff for details) in one of the formats listed below in order of preference:

  • Press-ready PDF file with all fonts embedded. (We cannot use PDF files that have been prepared for use on the web.)
  • Photoshop® TIF or hi-res JPG file with all fonts embedded.
  • Adobe Illustrator® EPS file with all fonts converted to outlines.

Any other type of file requires use of an outside vendor and may result in additional charges.
Publisher accepts no responsibility for content or reproduction of files that can be manipulated.

Very Important: For all digital files, ensure that all graphics are at least 300 dpi at the required size,
and the color is set for CMYK. Use stylized fonts and do not apply style attributes to basic fonts. All
elements must be placed at 100% size. Avoid rotation or cropping of images in desktop layout
programs; do this in Illustrator® or Photoshop®. Do not nest EPS files in other EPS files. ALL colors
MUST be in CMYK mode. RGB images will result in additional conversion charges. Spot colors are
printed as 4/c process match.

Color: SBCA staff makes every attempt to match the color in ads to the color proofs. However, a
certain amount of color variation is considered acceptable in the printing industry. Please contact
staff with specific questions about color matching or special color needs.

Storage: Ad materials are stored on a non-guaranteed basis for one year, and then destroyed
unless SBCA staff is otherwise notified by the advertiser.


SBCA Magazine Billing

Invoices will be emailed upon publication of the magazine along with proof of placed advertising. If you have questions about your invoice, please contact Jennifer Gustafson at jennifer@sbcacomponents.com or 224-236-3694.

Payments: Payment terms will be Net thirty (30) days. Advertisers and their agencies assume liabilities for all content in their ads and for any claims arising therefrom. The publisher reserves the right to refuse any advertisement.

Cancellation of an Advertising Medium: Order by Advertiser. Any Advertising Medium order other
than Print Advertising may be cancelled by Advertiser. In such event, SBCA Magazine reserves the
right to either repeat a former Advertising Medium Communication in lieu of the cancelled order or
to omit any Advertising Medium on behalf of Advertiser. In either event there shall be no reduction
in the Advertising Fee. A Print Advertising order is not subject to cancellation by Advertiser.

Advertiser Event of Default and Liquidated Damages: Advertiser understands and agrees that in
the event Advertiser fails to comply with any terms and provisions of this Agreement, including but
not limited to payment of any Advertising Fees (an “Event of Default”), SBCA Magazine’s damages
are uncertain and difficult if not impossible to accurately estimate because of the inability of SBCA
Magazine to resell advertising in lieu of the Advertising Medium and other relevant factors.
Accordingly, Advertiser agrees to pay damages in and amount equal to 100% of the Advertising Fees
to be paid by Advertiser during the term of this agreement. The damages to be assessed against
Advertiser are not penalties but instead are intended by the parties to be liquidated damages.
