2. Additional information


  • Pdf files must have the correct format (to edge) and 5 mm bleed and crop marks.
  • Half and quarter-page ads must fit the magazine format.
  • Text and logo should be placed at least 9 mm from cropping.


  • Double-page ads/spreads must be supplied as a spread or as two single pages in the same PDF file. When layouting spreads (except for Gör/Gjør Det Selv) up to 5 mm can disappear in the spine/fold (twice as much on the first/last spread). We recommend offsetting any images that cross the spine 2,5 mm to each side (5 mm on the first/last spread). This will cause 5 part of the image to repeat at the spine.


  • All fonts used in the document, logos, eps files, etc. must be included in the finished pdf.

Image and colours

  • All grey-tone and 4-colour images must have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi.
  • Bitmap images must have a resolution of at least 600 dpi.
  • All images can be JPEG compressed in highest quality.
  • AIl images and colours must be defined as CMYK with a max. total colouring of 310%.
  • To ensure that colours are reproduced correctly, our ICC profile must be used.
  • To ensure that colours are reproduced correctly, we must receive a proof print prior to deadline.
      • If the proof print is not received in due time, no liability is accepted for any variations in the reproduction of colours.
      • Benjamin Media accepts no liability for small variations in the reproduction of colours.
