ATM Receipts

Live area is 2.2" wide x 5.5" high. No bleed.

We prefer layouts created in Adobe InDesign CS6. Otherwise hi-res PDFs are fine. We can accept other file-types, but everything ultimately must be imported into InDesign for printing. Supporting graphics should be EPS vector files or TIFF images. Include spot colors where applicable (they will be converted at press). We are Macintosh-based and support Adobe Creative Suite.

Technical Notes

ATM receipt printing is specialty printing that requires certain considerations. Please adhere to these restrictions:

Receipt paper is very thin. So NO heavy ink coverage. Black areas should be black plate only (no 4-color blacks). RGB images are unprintable and should be avoided. All colored or knockout type should be 12 point or larger and not too thin.

All advertiser artwork is ganged printed on a large spread, so please don’t send one suitcase containing multiple font families. We can’t print PDFs directly, they have to be adjusted then imported into the layout software.

Other Considerations

Where applicable, perforated coupon areas should be at the bottom of the advertisement. This prevents ATM users’ account data from being compromised. A good rule of thumb is using only 2.25" at the very bottom for redeemable coupons. Expiration dates should be at least 30 days after the end of the promotion cycle.

ATM screens

Some older machines still have 4:3 ratios while newer models have a widescreen format. They all will automatically resize larger graphics. High quality JPG files in RGB mode are ideal.

4:3 Action Safe: 800 x 600 pixels | Title Safe: 720 x 540 pixels

16:9 Action Safe: 1024 x 576 pixels | Title Safe: 716 x 536 pixels

Statement Inserts

Trim size: 3.5" x 7.5" | Live area: 3" x 7" | Bleed: 3.25 x 7.25"

Horizontal or vertical, 4-color process.

These are very similar to Val-pak ads.
