Frequently Asked Questions

Why is a SWOP-certified proof requested?
SWOP-certified proofs (not color lasers or PDFs) are used by our print company to monitor the colors of ads throughout the print process. The requirement is included with our digital specs, and for current SWOP specifications and additional information, go to www.swop.org. Using a SWOP-certified proof allows you to see how your file will print, and if there's any problem, you can have it corrected before submitting to us. You may choose to fax a copy and trust that the colors in the file will print to your satisfaction, but we must ask for your written acknowledgement regarding responsibility.

Does Field Technologies have an FTP site?
Field Technologies does provide an FTP site for uploading files. Please contact our production manager (see below) for more information.

Ad Labeling Requirements When submitting your advertisement to us, include:
  • Magazine title and issue
  • Agency/vendor/advertiser name
  • Production contact and phone numbers
  • File name/number and list of contents
