Advertising with SAWE


Advertising in SAWE Publications

The Society of Allied Weight Engineers (SAWE) accepts advertisements for placement in our publications including the Weight Engineering Journal, our Bulletins, and the SAWE International website. The types of advertising accepted for each “publication” and the requirements for those ads are as follows: 

The Weight Engineering Journal is currently published three (3) times a year and runs full page (8½” x 11”) or half page (8½” w x 5½” h) ads either in black and white or color, and business card size (2” w x 3½” h) ads in black and white only. All material must be supplied electronically via e-mail, or through our website in TIFF, PDF, or EPS format.


  • PDF files should be created using the “Press Quality” settings, this will produce a high resolution (300 dpi) PDF suitable for offset printing.
  • If the page has bleed, the PDF needs to be created with bleed and marks.
  • All fonts and images must be imbedded.


  • If EPS files are supplied, all fonts should be outlined and saved as either grayscale or CMYK.

High-resolution graphics should always be provided and saved as TIFF files, not as JPEG or PICT files. TIFF files contain more information and produce higher quality images.
