Digital Edition

Unique advertising opportunities are available in the VIE digital edition. Interactivity can help you reach and capture your audience in an entirely new way. Please contact an advertising executive for more information.


Tablet devices have revolutionized the way readers interact with publications including books, magazines, and newspapers. The reading experience is enriched with creative layouts designed specifically for the digital medium—photos and videos are incredibly brilliant and crisp. VIE is proud to be at the forefront of this technology with the release of our digital edition for the iPad—with Android platforms to be introduced shortly. The tablet platform offers an engaging and unique way for advertisers to connect with our readers.

Interactive Guidelines

The tablet magazine format is exclusively portrait orientation. The reader swipes left-and-right to navigate between articles, then swipes up-and-down to read deeper to explore the words and photos of each story. Ads will be placed between these articles having the option to be either static or interactive. Interactive ads can choose to include one of the following interactive elements:

Standard Ad

  • Static press-ready PDF file.

Slide Show

  • Can include up to 5 images
  • Must be images, not additional ads

Pop Up Overlays

  • Up to 3 tappable areas
  • Overlays cannot be additional ads

Video and Custom Video

  • Runtime no longer than 30 seconds
  • 16:9 or 4:3 ratio

File Specifications

Files may be submitted by e-mail, Filesharing, or digital storage format (i.e. disc, flash drive, etc.) and file names should be descriptive. Filesharing instructions will provided upon request. Static ads may be delivered as a press-ready PDF file. Interactive ads may be delivered as either an Adobe InDesign file or as separate PDFs of the individual elements. Video files must be delivered as .MP4 or .MOV file formats.

Ad Value

One of the many advantages to advertising in a digital platform is the ability to track results. Using an analytics system built into the magazine’s online platform, reports can be available to provide details such as the number of views, audience by regions, and other useful information. The system is also able to work with any analytics currently being used on your website to determine how much traffic came from each specific advertisement—knowing that your advertising dollars are working as effectively as possible.

Advertising Rates

Our rates include all design and other technical coding services related to building the ad. Included in the design process, advertisers will be granted revisions prior to final approval: one revision for static ads; and two revisions for interactive ads. All additional revisions will be billed at $150 per request
