Newspaper-on-demand Publisher Grows
Three big European dailies have joined the roster of ‘Global Editions’ electronically
distributed by New York-based PressPoint to print sites around the world.
Italy’s La Stampa, Sweden’s Dagens Nyheter, and Russia’s Komsomolskaya Pravda are now
available in all PressPoint markets, where they are produced on Xerox high-volume
PressPoint also opened its Washington print site – the Copy General chain that also
owns and operates overseas copy centers, including a Moscow location where PressPoint
said it plans to begin printing later this year. Sales commence this month in Sydney,
Australia, with distribution to follow throughout the country at newsstands, hotels, and
the Summer Olympics.
The company also created the EventsWorks division to handle temporary production that
brings home-country publications to those attending special events, such as international
conferences, trade shows, and sporting events. PressPoint delivered more than 4,500
copies of its Global Editions to 11 hotels in January during the World Economic Forum in
Davos, Switzerland. Last month in Atlanta, it delivered more than 1,200 copies to
attendees at the Super Show, the biggest international sports products trade show.
