Classified advertising for Observer Magazine is 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 57 millimetres (2 columns) wide. This measurement method applies to all advertising that doesn’t have bleed.
