5) Confirm Ad

  • Information will be published as submitted.

  • Once your file has been integrated into the directory, you will receive an email with the appropriate link(s).

  • You have one week to "reject" the proof in email. Unless we receive an email with the word "Rejected" on the first line of the body of the email, with an explanation of why you are rejecting it, after a week we will assume "tacit approval" and consider the ad finalized.

  • All subsequent edits/updates will be billed at the above disclosed AD RATES. This measure is meant to ensure timely, accurate service and business continuity for the Seattle Business Directory.


Graphics for all "Virtual Ads" - Premium Position, Seattle Business Champion Section,  Classified Display, Directory Sponsorships

  • Images must be of high quality 300 DPI saved and submitted as PDF or JPG. Size and crop graphic files in their original application. Avoid sizing graphics converted to JPG to produce a better quality image and reduce the chance of error. Assuming the graphics you send adhere to the correct sizes, they should appear exactly as you send them.  All "virtual ads" will run for a continuous 12 month time period from initial publication.


Graphics for all "Printed Ads" - CD Front Cover, CD Inside Tray Card, CD Back Cover Sponsorship Logos, CD Inserts

  • Images must be of high quality 300 DPI saved and submitted as flattened Adobe Photoshop™ files or as 300 DPI PDFs. It is critical that you do not send Adobe Photoshop™ files with "layers" in them, as this will cause issues with font attributes. Please allow for 1/8" bleed margin for CD Inside Tray Card and CD Inserts. This publication is produced using four-color process colors only (CMYK). If you do not have access to Adobe Photoshop™ contact us for options.


  • All other Classified Display Listings will use the same text font and format, with no "font option". Use of "special characters" and other symbols is not permitted.  


Acceptable Ad Design

  • Ads must be produced with a border or be self-contained. Ad size must be the same as purchased, i.e. column(s) width by vertical inches (please refer to published dimensions). Ads must be submitted at the exact size the ad is to run per published dimensions.

  • The Seattle Business Directory will output client’s work according to these specifications. The client assumes all responsibility for files that do not output correctly due to errors or omissions in specifications. Files requiring correction will incur charges of $195 per hour, billable in 15 minute increments, for which you will be billed. Thank you in advance for your business. We are excited to work with you and look forward to delivering great results.
