How to Prepare Text files

When supplying text or other content, please use the following guidelines:

  • Whenever possible send Word files for text, not Excel files
  • Only send text that is to be included in your project
  • Do not include graphics files in your wordprocessing document
  • When sending lists of names, send only the name as it is to appear, do not send Excel spreadsheets with extemporaneous content
  • Do not add tabs, extra returns, or additional spaces for formatting purposes (these will all need to be removed during the layout and production process)
  • Key text directly into an email without extra hard returns or tabs
  • If the text is to be accompanied by a graphic, please include the name of the file in parentheses, ie: (filename.tif)
