Problem Solvers Advertorial
How it Works: This special section runs four times in 2024. Each Problem Solver addresses a different product category. You present an industry problem. Then share your company's solution.
Why It Works: BSCs face cleaning problems every day. They want solutions. But don't know where to quickly find them. And that's where you come in!
Our designers put everything together. You have final approval.

Because your best presentation is important to us, we have written this 10 STEP GUIDE to help you obtain maximum quality prior to us submitting your ad to the printer.
Please consider these suggestions when naming your file:
For optimum reproduction and clear and sharp copy, use sans serif fonts such as Arial, Calibri, Helvetica, Myriad or similar for small type. Reverse type reproduces best with large bold sans serif fonts. The same is true for color type. Thin serif fonts are difficult to read in color or reverse type. It is recommended that four color type and/or small four color reverse knock-outs be avoided. Black type that uses four color blends should never be used (Registration not allowed).
Black & white lasers are acceptable for grayscale ads.
Trade Press Media Group, Inc. pre-flights all files to the best of our ability. If we spot potential problems we will attempt to correct them or alert you to them. A proof for any textual/graphic changes made in our Creative Services Department will be submitted back to you for final approval. Due to the complexities of files and varied design techniques, we cannot be responsible for catching all trapping issues, typos or postscript errors.
Manufacturers are encouraged to submit the following content for consideration in print/online:
Every print issue features products and they will be archived on CleanLink.com and appear in our Cleaning Insider eNewsletter following the issue. Manufacturers are encouraged to submit new product announcements throughout the year. Submissions will be selected for the magazine on the first of the month prior to publication. The number of products featured will be dependent on available space.
Product submissions should include a full description of the product, including specs, features and benefits. These free announcements are subject to editing for space and magazine style. Each announcement must also include an image of the product. Images should be jpeg or tiff files at 300 dpi and at least 3 inches square ‐ we are unable to extract print-quality images from Word documents. Please include both the product description and image attachment in the same email. Products submissions can be sent to your sales representative, or by emailing email@example.com. Indicate in which publication(s) you want your product to appear.
Company Announcements / News:
Manufacturers are encouraged to submit company announcements such as personnel changes, mergers, acquisitions, new websites, warehouse relocations, awards, etc. These announcements will be considered for feature on CleanLink.com and the Cleaning Insider eNewsletter, and may be picked up for inclusion in print (space permitting). General industry tips, survey results, white papers and other industry announcements will also be considered.
To submit any of the above announcements, email firstname.lastname@example.org. There are no restrictions in length and photos are encouraged. (Images should be jpeg or tiff files at 300 dpi and at least 3 inches square.)
Case studies are featured in each of our print publications, as well as on CleanLink.com. These submissions should follow a typical case study format ‐ state problem, provide solution and explain success. If submissions feature a distributor, they will be considered for Sanitary Maintenance magazine. Case studies about in-house departments may be profiled in Facility Cleaning Decisions magazine. And profiles of building service contractors will be considered for Contracting Profits magazine. Following print (no matter which publication it is featured in), each case study will be added to CleanLink.com.
Due to space, case studies should be 450-500 words long and include a separate headline. Submissions should also include a photo of the product in use, preferably at the facility being profiled (standalone product images will not be used). Images should be jpeg or tiff files at 300 dpi and at least 3 inches square. Please include both the case study text and image attachment in the same email. Case study submissions can be sent to your sales representative, or by emailing email@example.com.
