ALL advertising materials must conform to the following specifications or materials may be subject to return.

  • Four-color ads must be converted to CMYK and should be accompanied with a matchprint, color key, IRIS, Rainbow or similar color proof. A matchprint is the preferred color proof.

*Premium Positions

Premium advertising placement will be limited to two preferred placements per AOA member, per calendar year.

Reservations for premium positions may be submitted to the Advertising Manager as early as June 1st of the calendar year prior to publication. A “stand-by” list for each premium position will be maintained by the Advertising Manager. If a premium space goes unclaimed by the established deadline, stand-by advertiser(s) will be contacted.
