How should I supply my material for publication, RGB, LAB, Spot…etc?

All high-resolution files need to be submitted in CMYK or B/W.

Why do I have to supply material with a ink density under 280%?

For Style Advisor magazine, if material is supplied over 280% ink coverage, it will be converted without notification.
