Artwork Design

  • In certain cases we can make up artwork from copy supplied. No liability can be accepted for these advertisements as to layout or reproduction from material supplied. Extra charges for this may be incurred and we suggest that where possible advertisers use the services of an outside company to provide artwork to their exact requirements.

  • If ads are supplied in editable file formats, such as Quark Xpress, open files, the client may be liable for charges incurred in converting the file for production and Time Out may insist on client approval of a proof before publication.

  • Deadline for advertisement delivery is Wednesday prior to publication, unless otherwise informed (i.e. bank holidays, special printing, etc).
