New look, built for the futureWritten by Autumn Lee | | email@example.com
Readers will notice a few changes in this issue of Toledo Free Press. A new printing partnership with the Gannett Co. offers our readers and advertisers higher quality control over the production process and some features that are cutting-edge in the Toledo market.
The Detroit Free Press/Detroit News printing plant in Sterling Heights, Mich., produced this issue, which is more compact, more streamlined and more environmentally friendly, and offers the potential for full color on every page. This allows for additional editorial use of color and a vast expansion of opportunity for our advertisers.
Part of the quality control process is the gray bars you will notice on the outside of some pages, and the small plus signs on others. These allow the state-of-the-art Gannett printing press to computer match and monitor every line of the grayscale and color printing process. There may be some missteps as we learn to best use the new technology, but the end result will be a better, sharper-looking newspaper as we progress.
We are proud to be affiliated with Gannett and hope you will enjoy the improvements. If you have any comments about the new look, please feel free to contact Editor in Chief Michael S. Miller at (419) 241-1700, ext. 2, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The July 20 Community Voices Forum was a rousing success, when 50 engaged people gathered to discuss life and development Downtown. We received a number of story and series ideas, and we thank every participant. We also owe thanks to our host, the Leslie Adams Gallery, co-sponsor ToledoTalk.com and FoxToledo, which provided news coverage of the discussion. The next Community Voices Forum is Aug. 20, back at the Leslie Adams Gallery. We have received a number of requests from prominent Toledoans to be available that night, so mark it on your calendars.
