In 1440, Johannes Gutenberg’s freshly minted printing press changed the course of publishing.
In 2012, it could be the so-called three-around printing method that reshapes the newspaper business, Jim Gore, vice president and general manager of Pressline Services, based in St. Louis, Mo., said.
The three-around system optimizes efficiency by allowing printing press cylinders to produce three pages per revolution instead of the usual two, Gore explained in a presentation Friday, Feb. 10, at the New England Newspaper and Press Association winter convention.
Gore said The Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch is the first newspaper to begin the switch to three-around printing, and he focused on its experiences in his presentation.
The Dispatch will print the Cincinnati Enquirer and the Kentucky Enquirer later this year, when Gannett Co. Inc. becomes the first to make the conversion to a three-around-printed newspaper. Gannett, based in McLean, Va., is the largest newspaper group in the country, based on daily circulation. MORE >
