Ad Creation and Approval Process

Our talented designers can create an ad for you, or you’re welcome to submit your own.

Submitting your own ad to MPP

Clients may choose to design and submit their own ads. In this case, files should meet the below specifications, and be submitted by the materials deadline to your Account Executive or We do a brief quality check and preflight on all submitted ads to ensure they will print accurately.

See a full list of our ad sizing specs here, and review our deadlines for ad submission.

Ads created by Minnesota Premier Publications

Each advertising contract includes the opportunity to have our accomplished designers create an ad or series of ads based on your direction. Advertisers work directly with their Account Executive and receive an emailed ‘proof’ to ensure the accuracy and approval of all design and copy.

This service is offered at no extra cost with up to three rounds of revision when first creating the ad. You may choose to continue beyond three rounds of revision and editing, and an hourly design fee will be applied.

Advertisers can make updates to their ad(s) for subsequent issues at any time, provided the changes are received prior to the materials deadline. The three rounds of revision reset for each issue the ad appears in.

Please be prepared to provide detailed information about what content and imagery you wish to see in your ad. Submit this information to your Account Executive in one email or document. This helps ensure we most accurately interpret your direction.

Required: Helpful, not required:

Provide this information to your Account Executive and they will return a proof from our design department for you to review. Any changes you’d like to make to the first proof initiates the first round of revision. It is preferred that you take a moment to review the ad in its entirety and provide your changes in one exchange to ensure we are able to meet all requests accurately.
