Tasmania gets more papers printed locally

Tasmanian residents can now look forward to cheaper and more consistent deliveries of the Australian, Herald Sun, and the Australian Financial Review, with all titles going into local Tasmanian production.

The Australian and Herald Sun are both being printed at the Mercury’s print site. Bill Roe, the Mercury’s circulation manager, said local production would would reduce the cost of the papers, with the Herald Sun going down by 30 cents.

“There’ll also be no problems with fog and aeroplanes,” he said, referring to delays encountered when air freighting newspapers.

While he said they were anticipating some increases in circulation, he said it wouldn’t be that large, as the two titles were already widely available prior to printing them locally.

The Australian Financial Review has also begun printing in Tasmania, at the Examiner’s print site in Launceston.
