Placement of Advertising

With the exception of premium spaces, all advertising placement is at the discretion of the publisher and will be included on a first-come first-served basis as space permits.

Production is optional and includes image scanning (5 max.), color correction, type setting, and document layout. Some restrictions may apply. Ad copy requiring production work should be submitted at least 7 days prior to specified ad material deadlines to allow time for proofing by the client.

Advertising Requiring Artwork (Production)

Production Rates**, as indicated in the table below, are considered the maximum chargeable amount to the client, based on the production guidelines as stated in the preceding paragraph. Special artwork, requested by client or beyond the production guidelines, will be quoted on a per job basis and charged in addition to the shown rate.


Production and design ownership is held exclusively by the respective client. CQ magazine does not charge royalty or service fees to clients wishing to run their CQ designed ad(s) in alternate publications. Copyright is only granted to the client once full payment for services performed is received by CQ.


All production design clients are supplied with a maximum of two ad proofs. Proofs will be delivered electronically as either JPG or PDF. Additional ad proofs, requested by the client, are billed at $45 per proof. Verbal instructions are accepted but are not guaranteed. All ad instructions should be conveyed in writing via e-mail. If you are unclear on the proofing process, you should call our office.
