adding the latest technology

We invite you to take a close look at your newspaper; chances are you will see a noticeable overall improvement in the quality of our printing. You’ll note the pictures are clearer and show more detail, as do the full-color photos and ads.

These improvements came as a result of an investment we’ve made in a computer-direct-to-plate system that eliminates our darkroom and its traditional film processing. This state-of-the-art system, which we brought online two weeks ago, lets us take the images of our newspaper pages created on our Mac computers and send those images directly to an aluminum plate to be used on our presses for offset printing.
