Standard Specs:

A digital edition is an interactive magazine that has features like zooming in and out. So it’s important to have high quality artwork. This should not be confused with online banners which are 72 dpi. Online banners are made for speed and fast loading times on Web pages.

  • Any supplied bitmap, vector, or PDF artwork must be 300 dpi
  • Animated GIFs not allowed due to compression and quality
  • Minimum of 18 pt font size (depending on font style) is recommended for legibility purposes when viewing Digital Editions at 100%.
  • Third party tags are not accepted (not to be confused with online banner ads)
  • Detailed Flash guidelines at the bottom of the page

Digital Edition Flash Guidelines


  • SWF file must be accompanied with the Adobe FLA working and supporting files.
  • Fonts need to be embedded within the animation.
  • Bitmaps should have “smoothing enabled” for best render quality.
  • Create a solid filled box on the bottom layer to avoid transparency issues. Do not use Flash default stage color.
  • Infinite loop is not allowed. A complete stop/stop action is mandatory after 25 seconds.
  • Do not add buttons, button actions, web links or URL actions.
  • NO third party tags allowed; however, URL click trackers are accepted.
  • Avoid any ActionScript that can affect the NxtBook engine, such as the _parent layer of the animation, _level0 and _rootreferences, or global functions like setTimeinterval.
  • Files should be compressed best as possible.
  • Set the frames per second (FPS) to 24.
  • Publish or export .SWF file for Flash Player 9 and ActionScript 3.0.
  • We do not accept non-Adobe product SWF files generated from third party flash animation generators (For example, Swish).
