Specialty magazine publishers know it takes a great printing partner to produce a great magazine.
A great printing partner understands your business.
As a 100-year-old printer specializing in short- to medium-run magazines, we also print catalogs and custom publications. Lane Press has the unparalleled experience to offer proactive solutions to production, printing, and distribution challenges-and to lead the way with technology solutions that meet the changing needs of media consumers. Whether your publication has a consumer, regional, association, scholastic, or business-to-business focus, we make it our business to understand the details of your business. We strive to understand your mission and how it informs your decisions– and in turn, this informs our decisions. We strive to be on your page.
A great printing partner uses technology to facilitate the craft and the science of printing.
At Lane Press, we harness the power of technology to streamline your workflow and improve your results. In prepress, PDF file handling and online proofing shave time off your production cycle and provide predictable and accurate proofs. In the pressroom, we implement Closed Loop Color to guarantee accurate color reproduction. And in postpress, we use technology to achieve superior binding and to offer you a full range of packaging options to meet your marketing needs.
But technology alone does not achieve the quality of this craft. With technology as an enabler, it is the people at Lane Press and their commitment to producing the best work possible at every step in the process that ensures your magazines are produced to the highest standards.
A great printing partner moves magazines, mountains of them.
Moving your magazines to the newsstand, to subscribers, or to bulk distribution is a critical link in the Lane Press service chain. We get your publication to your readers as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. This means finding creative distribution solutions—including copalletization, co-mailing and pooling—and analyzing the alternatives for delivering your print copies. It also means moving your brand and content digitally—with delivery to the Web, e-mail newsletters, and PDAs.
A great printing partner stands by your side.
The Lane Press customer service team is an extension of your magazine staff; we’re here to serve you. Your CSR will walk you through every step of the printing process, from selecting paper to ordering backfills. That same person will shepherd each of your print issues through the plant. If you come to Lane Press for your press check, your CSR will make sure your visit is a comfortable and successful one. That is our commitment to you.
