Approved Technologies
Vue Weekly supports all major third-party ad-technology providers.  Any costs that are associated with third-party ad serving will be the responsibility of the advertiser.  Discrepancies may occur between Vue Weekly reporting and the third-party provider reporting. We adhere to the accepted guidelines for discrepancy resolution set forth by the IAB. Please refer to this link for further details: Advertising Terms and Conditions in PDF format http://dl.itbe.com/downloads/IABterms.pdf

Vue Weekly supports Flash and Rich Media ad creative. Acceptable third-party ad tags can be Javascript or iFrames. Rich media must be third-party served. For optimal customer experience, only user initiated ad units that expand or play audio will be accepted. Vue Weekly does not allow pop-up ad formats at this time.

 

Ad delivery / media formats
Please contact your Vue Weekly sales representative and relay your method of transmission.

Removable media
We accept ad material on CD-ROM and DVD-ROM only. All media and cases should be clearly labelled with your company’s name and phone number. We assume no responsibility for these items after press date. DO NOT SEND THE ONLY COPY OF YOUR WORK!

Film
Film submissions are no longer accepted for advertising or imagery purposes.

Electronic submission / retrieval
Email ads/ad material to ads@vueweekly.com. This method is only suitable for files under 20MB in size.

Please identify your ad in the email subject line along with a client name (who the ad is being inserted for, in the case of third-party designers) and the issue date. Please compress your files using Stuffit or Zip if possible.

We can also retrieve files from any FTP site you have. Please submit access information to your advertising representative or email information to ads@vueweekly.com

Vue Weekly FTP information:
SERVER:  ftp.vueweekly.com
USER: vueads1
PASSWORD: vueads1

Using our FTP, you will need to use a FTP client like CyberDuck or Fetch. If  you don’t know what a FTP client is, its probably best you not use FTP as a delivery mechanism. Using your web-browser will not work.

Please inform your advertising representative that you will be using the VUE WEEKLY ftp site for ad submission. Upon file upload please send a confirmation email to ads@vueweekly.com stating the file name, client name, date/time of upload and contact information.

Alternative sending methods:
There are now several websites that provide free services that allow large-file formats to be sent. Please feel free to send us your ad using file sharing sites such as yousendit.com wetransfer.com

Naming Conventions
The file names are extremely important! Please include a client name and/or job name along with the run date. Please avoid using file names such as vuead.jpg, vue.tif, vueweekly.ai, vue-ad.psd, etc. These are easier for us to lose track of in our filing system.

Technical Support
Should you require assistance or clarification on any of this information, or need specific reproduction information about our publication, please contact: Charlie Biddiscombe at 780.426.1996 / ads@vueweekly.com
