Throughout the last four years serving as editor of The 66 News, I’ve tried to make each issue read and look better than the last. To that end, I’ve determined that it’s necessary to implement some guidelines pertaining to photo submissions. By following these guidelines, the precious photos used in the newsletter will look as good as possible.
I certainly understand that many photos submitted for the newsletter are historic - and therefore not in a digital format (i.e. .jpg), but old and low-resolution photos don’t easily translate clearly to a printed format, like our newsletter. In order for them to appear clear and bright in a printed medium, I do have some requirements to set forth based on suggestions from our printer, Marlene:
For Existing photos processed from film:
Option 1 - Mail processed photos directly to Gina at:
Route 66 Association of Illinois
Attn: Newsletter Editor Gina Blitstein
Matteson, IL 60443
These photos will be returned to you if you request.
