Chronicle cuts deal with printer to trim its production costs

Sunday, December 16, 2012

The Chronicle’s average daily circulation has dropped from 251,000 to 156,000 since 2009 and to further cut costs it has renegotiated its contract with Transcontinental Inc., the Canadian-based firm that prints the newspaper in Fremont. The Chronicle will go from using three presses to two in a deal that could save it tens of millions of dollars over the life of its 15-year agreement.

The news is buried in a recently-released Transcontinental financial disclosure. San Francisco Peninsula Press Club’s blog reported it Saturday.
