The Sopris Sun goes to press by 5pm every Wednesday.

 


Sopris Sun Produced Ads:

  • Include text with exact wording.
  • Provide layout suggestions and instructions.
  • Due to our short timetable advertisers are limited to TWO revisions.  Successive revisions will be charged revision fees.
  • Resizing for other publications available at an additional charge.
  • All images (pictures, photos logos, or scans) need be at least 300 dpi format to ensure optimum printing. 
    Note: Artwork downloaded from the internet is normally NOT PRINT QUALITY because it has a resolution of 72 dpi.  Taking an image from the internet and enlarging it or increasing the dpi in with imaging software does not solve the problem, rather makes image quality worse. Further, images off the internet may be copyrighted. Please submit only your own pictures or purchase stock photography.
