Requirements for print ads

We accept electronic files sent via email to EPS or PDF (grayscale with all fonts embedded) preferred. All images must be high resolution (at least 300dpi). If you’re not sure whether your ad meets these requirements, please send it anyway, we can let you know.

For full page advertisements, we offer two sizes: ads that are sized to fit within the normal Bulletin page margins, as well as complete page ads that extend to the edge of the page, which need to be supplied with a 1/8″ bleed. Both options are the same price.

Welcome to the IMS Bulletin website! We are developing the way we communicate news and information more effectively with members. The print Bulletin is still with us (free with IMS membership), and still available as a PDF to download, but in addition, we are placing some of the news, columns and articles on this blog site, which will allow you the opportunity to interact more. We are always keen to hear from IMS members, and encourage you to write articles and reports that other IMS members would find interesting. Contact the IMS Bulletin at
