The best way to get information about advertising is to download our Official Advertising Guide. It contains all the information you need about placing display, online, insert and classified advertising, as well as a full publication calendar, Drexel community demographics, and contact information.
For the 2013-14 academic year, The Triangle has maintained our expertly priced rates, and introduced “Premium Issues” with additional run counts, allowing your message to be exposed to a wider audience.
Online ads are now available on thetriangle.org! View our online advertising rate card for more information.
You will need a PDF viewer, such as the free Adobe Reader to view our advertising rate cards. If you are unable to download the guides, please send the Advertising Department an email at email@example.com or call 215-895-2585 and we can either fax or send you a copy.

Print Artwork Requirements
All artwork for display ads must be “Print Ready”, sized correctly, at least 300 DPI, and in CMYK process color format. No spot colors are allowed. Artwork should be in one of the following file formats: PDF (preferred), AI, EPS, PSD, TIFF, PNG, or JPG. Artwork can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
When creating “Print Ready” artwork, please do not use Microsoft Office programs such as Word and PowerPoint, as these programs do not produce print-quality (300 DPI or greater) artwork. DOC, DOCX, PPT, and PPTX files are NOT accepted, even if converted to PDF.
Recommended programs to use include, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, QuarkXPress, CorelDRAW, GIMP, Paint.Net, or Inkscape. All of these programs can create correctly sized, “Print Ready” art in CMYK color format at 300 DPI or greater, when the correct settings are used.
If you are not sure if you have print-ready art, a quick litmus test is that if there is any additional assembly required, you do not have print-ready art. Print-ready art should be one file that The Triangle’s production staff can place onto the page.
If you do not have the resources to create print-ready art or you have art that needs modifications to become print-ready, The Triangle provides design services at a rate of 25 percent of the ad space cost. Please contact email@example.com for more information about utilizing our design services.
At this time, The Triangle only accepts cash, checks and money orders. In addition, Drexel department or SAFAC accounts are accepted for internal Drexel customers.
Display advertisements and inserts are billed after publication. We do not offer any prepayment discounts.
Classified ads must be prepaid before publication. Proof of publication is not provided for classified ads unless requested after the publication date.
Payment can be mailed to or dropped off at our office located at:
3141 Chestnut St.

Please include the ad number with your payment so that we can credit the correct account.
