Camera ready digital files can be sent in PDF or JPEG formats.  Please note that the Pointer Points editors are NOT responsible for camera ready ads that are sent electronically without proper resolution.
It is the member’s responsibility to ensure electronically-submitted photos(s) are at the proper resolution as stated above.  Member should include both the name of the dog and the name of the owner. Editors are unable to make ANY changes to ads sent as PDF files. 
Pointer Points editors are NOT responsible for any typographical errors on ads that are camera ready.
Original photos (color or b/w) can be sent and will be scanned and imported into your ad if requested.  Editors cannot accept color copies of original photos, as these will not provide good quality reproductions.  If a member sends original photographs; each photo is to be marked with the name and address of the person the photos are to be returned to as well as the names of the dog and owner. That way, photos will be returned without delay. Also, properly marked photos will ensure they are properly placed in the ad, especially when there are more than one.
Mail all ads in either a photograph envelope (available at all retail stores) or with cardboard protecting them. Also, editors request members submit a self-addressed stamped envelope for the return of your photos.  Editors are unable at this time to include them within the actual mailing of the magazine.  The copy for any ad should be provided in a typed format either in the body of an email or attached as a text document if sent electronically. (A hard copy printout will also be accepted).  Copy should include all information, such as the dog’s registered name, call name, sire and dam, owners, breeders, handlers, addresses, phone numbers and email, the name of the judge(s) pictured in the ad and information about dog’s accomplishments. Any special instructions concerning the look or style of the ad should also be included if desired.
