Change often comes with the arrival of a new year. So is the case with your hometown newspaper. 

The North Iowa Times’ printing press and its associated technology have retired, meaning the newspaper is no longer printed at the Courier Press office in Prairie du Chien. Graphics Inc., of Calmar, which has printed The Trader weekly, along with many special sections for the North Iowa Times, has now taken on regular printing of the product.

With this transition, newsstand timing will be revised. Our goal is for each issue to be available for purchase on newsstands no later than 10 a.m. on Wednesdays. Subscribers’ newspapers should still arrive at the same time they did previously. 

Advertising deadlines are increasingly more important with this transition. Those placing advertisements or legals in the North Iowa Times are asked to contact the office by noon on Mondays, the day before publication. 

In addition, readers may have noticed a slightly modified appearance to the past few issues of the North Iowa Times, since we began the transition several weeks ago during the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season. Adjustments were made to the masthead in order to accommodate a new digital address label for subscribers.

Readers may also notice sharper, more vibrant color, ads and pictures throughout our paper. And we will now have the ability to print in full color each week, which we feel will result in improved quality of our product.

Thanks for your patience as we adapt to this latest process and schedule. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have at (563) 873-2210 or
