Guide Display Columns

These column sizes are supplied for ads not covered in the standard sizes above.

All Guide fractional ads are type area only, without bleed.

Ad sizes are given as height in cm x width in columns. Depth is usually converted to millimetres for delivery, so: a 10×2 ad would be 100mm (10cm) high and 63 millimetres (2 columns) wide. This measurement method applies to all advertising that doesn’t have bleed.
