- Accepted media is a CD-ROM or DVD.
- All graphic elements (photos and logos) should have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi.

- Please do not use the stylization palette to bold, italicize, add a drop shadow or outline your fonts. Doing so may slow output and cause font defaulting. Mishpacha is not responsible for the final appearance if the style palette is used.
