ADVERTISEMENT DESIGN TIPS

Below are four examples of effective print ads. Here’s what you can do to make sure that yours, too, gets the attention it deserves from readers:

  • Keep your message short. Less text is more! Write short, compelling copy with a clear call to action.
  • Use logos in a vector format (.eps .ai ).  This will ensure logos print crisp and clean.
  • Stick to a simple color palette. One or two spot colors command more attention than the entire spectrum.
  • Use high-quality photography. If you choose to use imagery, make sure it is at least 300 dpi. But remember:
  • Images are NOT required for an effective ad. Less photography is more, too! A single photo is more impactful than several.
