Ad Trafficking and Preflight

The YGS Group has recently transitioned to SendMyAd to meet the growing needs of our diverse customer base. This web-based, automated solution improves the productivity and profitability of our publishing customers by streamlining the process of receiving ad materials.

SendMyAd is a cloud based ad portal, which is accessed using a standard web browser to simplify the process of print, web and tablet ad submission. With SendMyAd, ad materials can be uploaded, preflighted, approved, and delivered to the publisher or printer all within a simple-to-use portal. It provides both the publisher and advertiser an interactive preflight report highlighting the results of preflight tests performed against the publisher’s ad specifications. With an easy to use trim-editing tool, ads can be repositioned and trimmed to match ad specifications without resubmitting or leaving the ad portal. SendMyAd creates a PDF/X-1a and retains all job ticket and history as metadata. The ad is then delivered to the publisher or printer ready for placement in the magazine.
