Full Page Ad Notes:

A SHOWCASE full-page ad is the exact same specification as a Packaging World or ProFood World full-page ad.

A high-resolution PDF with bleed will need to be uploaded for the full-page ad portion of a 2-page profile.

Adhering to trim, bleed, and safe area specifications, as well as ensuring all images contained within your ad are of high resolution, and that the ad is saved in CMYK color mode without the inclusion of any Pantone spot colors, is critical to the accurate reproduction of your ad in print.

Any ads submitted that do not meet ALL specifications will print as supplied and may not display as intended.

  • After uploading your fractional ad JPEG to the Send My Ad Portal, you must select the "Fit Image To Frame" option. The Send My Ad portal will then proportionally scale your ad to fit the space on the one-page profile unit.
