Ad Guidelines:

You may submit a camera-ready ad or request help with design work from CVNC. If you submit the ad, it should be the correct size and resolution for posting on the website – modifications on our part may require cropping of information or distortion of the image.

Required File Format: JPG, GIF or animated GIF.  Please do not submit a PDF as conversion to the required format may cause loss of information.

Provide a URL with your image.  We will link the ad to this webpage.

IMPORTANT: Please preview your ad in a web browser and on a normal-sized monitor before submitting. Print ads frequently contain a lot of text which does not translate well to a website.
