If you send your digital ad files via e-mail or upload to our ftp site, either send your color proof via overnight mail to Dorlisa Goodrich Young, c/o Printing Impressions, 1500 Spring Garden Street, Suite 1200, Philadelphia, PA 19130; or, if color is not critical, fax a black and white proof to Dorlisa Young at (215) 238-5297.

A digital matchprint is preferred if color is critical, however, a Rainbow, Fuji or color laser is acceptable for color breaks.
