Other specifications

  • All Ads should be delivered as PDF, exported using our presets (see the table above).
  • All ads must have correct dimensions and bleed.
  • Spreads must be sent as two separate pages (left/right as separate files). 
  • Images should have a resolution of (at least) 300 ppi.
  • Do not use TrueType-fonts.
  • The PDF should be generated using the correct color profile to ensure predictable/correct colors (see the above table). We do not take responsibility for minor variations in the reproduction.
  • When layouting spreads (except for Gjør Det Selv), be aware that up to 5 mm can disappear in the spine/fold (especially on the first/last spread). We recommend shifting any images that cross the spine 2,5 mm to each side (causing 5 mm of the image to repeat at the spine).
  • Ad dimensions for the different titles can be found here: Våre produkter (in Norwegian only).

How to install the PDF-preset(s):

Warning: Color Profiles must be downloaded and installed before you install PDF-presets!

  • InDesign:
    File > Adobe PDF presets > Define… > Load
  • Illustrator:
    Edit > Adobe PDF presets… > Import
  • Photoshop (not recommended for generating PDFs!):
    Install the preset using one of the other programs, or see the option below:

How to install the Color Settings (optional):

Warning: Color Profiles must be downloaded and installed before you install Color Settings!

  • InDesign/Illustrator:
    Edit > Color Settings > Load... 

If you already have started a new document, we recommend going to Edit > Convert to Profile... and choose the correct CMYK-profile for your document (see table at the top of the page). Then you will see the colors more accurately while working (this is especially important for Vi i Villa).
