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:
Up to 10 days after the ad-closing date (see dates and planned topics on pages 2, 3 and 11)
