GREENHOUSE Advertising

For more than thirty-eight years, NCHE has served North Carolina home educators. We strive to keep NCHE members informed and encouraged through our flagship publication, GREENHOUSE Magazine. GREENHOUSE is currently available in three formats. We publish a beautiful print version that looks great on your coffee table or bookshelf. This is mailed to all NCHE members and given to NC legislators. A PDF version of GREENHOUSE is available online, as well as articles posted regularly on the GREENHOUSE webpage. Thousands of homeschool families are looking for products and services just like yours. We are pleased to provide the opportunity for you to connect with these families by advertising with GREENHOUSE. Please see the instructions below for how to advertise in GREENHOUSE.

  2. Decide if you want to submit a digital ad for the GREENHOUSE section of the NCHE website and the top ten visited webpages (with a few exceptions such as the home page).
  3. Create a print ad.
  4. Fill out the advertising order form and submit. You can fill out a credit card form or a check form.

Print Ad Minimum Requirements:

  • Submit a press-ready PDF, JPG, or TIF including bleed, crop marks and embedded fonts. Include all linked files, fonts and the layout file.
  • Minimum resolution for photographs is 300 dpi (or ppi) at 100% size
  • Minimum resolution for line art scans is 1200 dpi (or ppi) at 100% size. • Convert art to process CMYK colors. Do not leave art in RGB. Adding resolution to art will produce questionable results. Leaving artwork in RGB format may cause a color change to color critical items during pre-press functions of the printer that we are not responsible for. • Logos or line art should be vector graphics.
  • Type 1 PostScript fonts are preferred. Include the screen font (font suitcase or bitmap font) and all PostScript printer fonts for all typefaces used in your document. True Type or Open Type fonts must be embedded into the PDF. Another option is to convert all fonts to outlines. • Build layout documents with CMYK process colors. Do not use spot colors.
  • Create Rich Black with 60% cyan, 40% magenta and 100% black.
