In 1971, TN Printing began as a small in-house print shop, designed to support the Times News and its sister companies of the Pencor Corporation. Our one press operation was located in a small corner of the Times News building, located at 1st and Iron Streets in Lehighton, PA.
Throughout the seventies, printing technology changed at a rapid pace and more open press time quickly became available. Instead of printing only a daily newspaper, we made the decision to become a premiere commercial cold set web printer and offer full color sheet fed printing services.
In 1983, the rolling hills of the Mahoning Valley became home to a new web printing facility. As an expansion of the existing sheet fed division in the downtown, the four-unit Uniman press printed at speeds of 15,000 papers per hour, with four full color page capabilities.
In 2002, as business increased, we expanded our Mahoning Valley facility to house the Times News and TN Printing under the same roof. The 20,000 square foot expansion allowed for a new five-unit state-of-the-art computerized Koenig and Bauer web press, with in line gluing, that has the ability to print 35,000 papers per hour, with sixteen full color broadsheet pages. It includes a Kodak Trendsetter direct to plate system with Staccato screening capabilities, Epson digital proofing and color management, and a Nela optical plate punching and registration system.
The sheet fed printing division, located on the ground floor, includes a Shinohara four color perfector, a Shinohara two color perfector, dual AB Dick two color duplicators and an Icon CPP 650 high-speed color copier.
In addition to printing services, our full service mailroom offers CASS certified inkjet addressing, variable data printing, tabbing and envelope insertion capabilities. We can even get a targeted list of customers, to maximize the cost-effectiveness and success of your direct-mail advertising.
