Design Instructions

Click one of these MS Word or PDF files to download a template. If you prefer to compose your own ad without a template, use the dimensions listed in the grid above.

  1. If using one of the MS Word file templates, simply choose the ad you like and edit it. USE THE FONTS PROVIDED.
  2. If using the PDF templates, use a graphics editor that can import PDF files and resave the final ad as a PDF.
  3. Be careful not to resize the ads. 
  4. If you are taking out a standard (non-cover) ad, submit the artwork in B&W. If you are reserving an inside cover or back cover position, submit the artwork in full-color CMYK.

HONOREE BIOS AND PHOTOS

PHOTOS – When choosing a photo for your honoree, take a little time to obtain a photo worthy of this honor. Download our helpful graphic, How to make your honoree look great, to see what is preferred for photos.

BIOS – Talk about your honoree's involvement at the synagogue, in the community, etc. Touch on family and hobbies, too, if you have space. It's also okay to mention professional or scholastic achievements.

Shoot for 1,500 CHARACTERS (with spaces). That's approximately 270 words (or roughly a half page). We've provided some examples for the MOY and YOY bios.

Note: Anything less than 1,000 characters will seem short; anything over 2,200 characters forces the text to be made smaller to fit.

SEND – Submit photos and written bios to fjmcmidwest@gmail.com
