If you are an experienced publisher you will appreciate the careful attention our prepress department gives to your files, making sure that everything is optimal. This care continues through the actual printing on our press and into our bindery for those publications that require binding.
How do we print beautiful community newspapers on time, all the time? At Webnews Printing Inc we have designed our processes to maximize quality through every step of our production. If you are new to newspaper and magazine publishing, our sales representatives and our experienced prepress technicians will work with you to make sure your layout and files will deliver the quality you are looking for.
CTP Technology: We use state-of-the-art computer to plate technology (CTP) which provides high quality imaging and printing.
PDF Workflow: Our workflow is PDF based from file to plate and is platform agnostic. We exclusively accept PDF files, whether from PC or Mac. We can work with PDFs created from any publishing software that can export high resolution in the CMYK colour space. We recommend using industry standards Adobe InDesign or QuarkXPress and outputting PDFs using Press Quality or Press PDF presets.
File Delivery: Webnews Printing makes it easy for you to submit your files through our dedicated FTP server, but we can also work with emailed files and those delivered in person on USB or other digital media.
Desktop Publishing/PDF Consultation: We provide free consultation in desktop publishing relating to page size, bleed allowance, press and bindery tolerances and PDF output. Our Prepress technicians have extensive experience. Feel free to contact us with file or print related questions prior to any printing job.

Saddle-stitched publications span the gamut of size from 5 1⁄2” x 8 1⁄2” to 11” x 16 1⁄2”. The maximum thickness of a saddle-stitched product is approximately 240 pages of newsprint plus cover. The maximum thickness is reduced as the weight of the paper stock increases. We are capable of stitching up to 6 signatures at a time. Please consult with our staff to discuss your requirements.
Offline folding is also available at Webnews Printing Inc. This additional folding is generally used to prepare publications for distribution through Canada Post.
We are pleased to offer competitive pricing on inserting.
As part of our promise to print beautiful newspapers on time, all the time, Webnews Printing Inc offers two delivery options to ensure your papers are ready for you where and when you need them.
For some of our local customers, the option that makes the most sense is to pick up the papers from our factory floor. This can save such customers money and time since the papers then only have to be loaded once onto their truck and can be taken directly to all of their distribution locations.
For other customers, the best option is to have Webnews Printing deliver the product to them. For many of our non-local customers this option makes the most sense. Working with our logistics partners, FBI Group and FEDEX Trade Networks, Webnews Printing will look after the logistics of arranging your delivery and will make sure all of the paperwork is in order for hassle-free customs clearing in the case of shipments to our US clients.
All you will have to do is provide the address and have your staff there to take possession at the designated time.
