Notice anything different on Mondays?

Have you noticed anything different about your Monday paper yet? No, it doesn’t have better headlines or photos than usual, but you might think the pictures look cleaner and the paper is smoother than normal. Why you ask? Because the Monday edition is actually being printed at our Macomb County plant in Mt. Clemens, home of The Macomb Daily.
There’s actually a very rigorous process we have to go through just to get the pages shipped to the Macomb servers before they can print, but it’s all worth it in the end.
The downside to this improvement is the fact that in order to get the pages to the printing plant in time to make their runs, we are forced to bump up our deadlines by a few hours. Doesn’t sound like much, and it hasn’t been too detrimental thus far, but it makes it a lot closer to deadline for things like 6 p.m. Pistons games, which you may have noticed wasn’t accompanied by any quotes in Monday’s edition.
Never fear, has all the updated stories and photos. So, enjoy your lighter, smoother Monday editions and let us know what you think of the new format.
