The Texas Investigator Magazine and Newsletter Advertising Guide
revised 9-14-2022

New guidelines coming soon.


Thank you for your interest in advertising in our publication. We want the best results for you and your organization.  To ensure the best results, we have some guidelines to follow to maximize and ensure the best appearance for your ad.  Our magazine Editor and Assistant Editor are available to help you get the best placement for your ad. Please do not hesitate to contact them if you have any questions or concerns.


1. Print resolution is measured in dots per inch (or “DPI”) which means the number of dots of ink per inch that a printer deposits on a piece of paper.

Please make that your advertisement is at least 300 DPI but no more than 1200 DPI. By staying within these parameters, we can ensure your ad possesses the best image quality in our publication.

2. Ad should be formatted for CMYK (4-color) process.  This includes black and white ads. CMYK is a four-color process of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. The printer creates four different screen tints, one for each color, then it applies small dots to each screen tint according to how they should combine to form a single color per dot.

3. Ad must be in PDF format.

4. Once your ad meets the above requirements, please email to [email protected].
