Technical details Bound-in inserts:

Bound-in inserts::
Before acceptance and confirmation of the order by the publisher, a compulsory sample must be furnished. Also a blank sample, with indication of size and weight, will be accepted, if no other material is available. Bound-in inserts must be clearly discernible as advertisement, must not be mistaken for an editorial part of the journal and must only cover the products of an advertiser. Placement of bound-in inserts may be limited by the technical feasibility. For any bound-in insert made of a material other than paper the publishers will first obtain approval from the postal company.

Technical details:
Bound-in inserts must be delivered with untrimmed edges. Multi-sheet inserts must be delivered properly folded. The cover page of the insert must be indicated. Inserts must be delivered in such a way that no additional cutting, folding or reworking is necessary. Extras and additional folding or gluing work will be charged separately. Multi-sheet inserts must be folded on the side of the binding. If these preconditions are not met, an extra charge will have to be paid.

Conditions and technical details inserts:

Conditions for order acceptance and confirmation by the publishing house are the presentation of a binding sample, if necessary a dummy sample with size and weight indication. Inserts may only be used for the sales program of an advertiser. The insert must be designed in such a way that the reader does not associate it with the text part of the magazine. The placement will be carried out according to the technical possibilities. Exclusively for MPT International.
Technical details:
As the material is inserted loose, i.e. without fixture of any kind, it must be a single piece. The inserted material must be delivered in such a condition that no additional handling or processing is required. Any extra work (e.g. folding) will be separately charged. Inserts printed on a
material other than paper will not be accepted unless a compulsory sample has been furnished before, for checking its suitability for processing and shipping. Inserts consisting of several sheets must close up towards the binding, i.e. towards the inserting direction.

Reference to insert:
Reference to the insert will be included in the advertisers’ index free of charge.

Deadline for delivery:

The following conditions must be observed in order to accept digital advertisements/print documents and process them without any problems:

In addition to the corresponding file name, we require an exact order for each data carrier or file transfer as well as printouts and, in the case of colour advertisements, proofs that are binding for printing with the necessary details. In the case of FTP transmissions, we request the corresponding advertising order, enclosing a copy of the advertising motif, to be sent
simultaneously by fax to the number given below. The deadline for the acceptance of advertisements and the delivery date for print documents specified in the media information shall also apply to advertisements delivered digitally (see AMF Schedule T „Schedule and Topic Plan“).

Für die Übernahme digitaler Anzeigen gelten die nachfolgenden Preise. Fehlbelichtungen aufgrund von unvollständigen oder fehlerhalten Dateien,
falschen Einstellungen oder unvollständigen Angaben werden berechnet. Das gilt gleichermaßen für zusätzliche Satz- oder Lithoarbeiten sowie für die Erstellung fehlender Proofs. Dateien in Word, Excel und PowerPoint
können nur mit Mehraufwand (Zusatzkosten) verwendet werden.

Graphics/other imports:
If graphics or scans are placed in the display, these imports must be included
in any case. The graphics or image files in the original program must also be saved separately on data carriers. They should not contain any compressions, raster images should have a resolution of at least 300 dpi, line images 1200 dpi.
Permissible graphic formats: the usual EPS, TIFF or BMP files.

Colour advertisements/receipts/proofs:
A binding expression is required for each side to be exposed. For colour advertisements with special colours (Pantone, HKS), colour-separated printouts with the exact colour designations are required. For the printing of advertisements in Euroscale (CMYK), a proof is absolutely necessary. Colour prints from the colour copier are not binding.

Together with the data carrier or the FTP transmission all information about journal/title, sender/company, operating system, program versions used, file names as well as number and names of the printing colours are required.
(Files must not be stored in closed postscript files.)

In the program files and attached font imports no modified fonts may be used. All fonts and font styles used, in particular those contained in EPS files, must be listed in the order. The fonts will only be used for processing the transmitted order and will be deleted immediately afterwards.

Interventions will be charged at 63 € per hour or part hour.

Other services:

Only what is available on the data carrier can be exposed. The publisher accepts no liability for deviations in texts, illustrations and especially colours. The printing of colour advertisements without a proof is without guarantee. We assume that the files sent and handed over to us are copies
and assume no liability for their existence.
