Cost-effective, easy-to-use advertising layout and issue management software for small- to mid-size publications.

AdForce users can quickly build ad pages using drag-and-drop or semi-automated flow tools. Finished sections can be opened in Adobe InDesign or QuarkXPress for pagination.

Flexible and functional

Translate ad sales into ad geometry easily starting with virtually any order-entry system. Information such as ad name, number, size, color, coupon status, market, advertiser, requested section or page and pickup instructions are poured directly into the AdForce runsheet for easy review and manipulation.
