New York’s Daily News won’t be the only newspaper running off its new, full-color presses next month.
The KBA Commander CT equipment at the Daily News‘ LibertyView plant near the Jersey City waterfront across from Manhattan are slated to begin printing The Queens Courier, Courier Sun and El Correo in August.
Last year, the Daily News began bringing the new presses into production to produce the tabloid entirely in color. In addition to improving print quality for readers and advertisers, the investment was made with the idea of bringing in contract work. The Courier is the first to be announced.
“In our efforts to bring the finest news and newspaper to our readers, we are delighted to be able to deliver to them the state-of-the-art quality of the Daily News presses,” said Publisher Victoria Schneps-Yunis.
The new presses are expected to provide Courier advertisers with “unprecedented opportunities to run high-resolution, full-color images on any page in the paper, in any size,” the paper’s Website reported, noting that stitching, inserting and page-one peel-off ad also are available.
Daily News CEO Marc Z. Kramer told the Courier that readers of its group’s titles “will soon see the full-color print quality that only the Daily News can produce.”
