Polestar Completes Christmas TV Listings Production Run

Thursday, December 11, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

Once again this year, Polestar successfully completed a marathon production run of Christmas TV Listings last weekend.

The magazines produced were - TV Choice and Total TVguide (H Bauer), Radio Times (Immediate Media), What's on TV, TV Times and TV & Satellite Week (Time Inc (UK)).  

Over 8.3 million stitched magazines were manufactured across five Polestar sites and managed to very tight deadlines utilising 19 presses and 15 stitching lines, constituting the equivalent of over 51million x 32pp section.   

This year Polestar was supported by PCP, Pindar, Prinovis and Wyndeham.

Barry Hibbert, CEO of Polestar said:

'The annual production of Christmas TV Listings magazines is always a high point for us and this year was more exciting than ever, due to larger paginations and the use of additional product enhancements - proof indeed that print is certainly on the up! 

I am particularly pleased this year because we were able to utilise both of our 96pp web offset presses at Polestar Sheffield in the plan.  So soon after installation, these presses are running at world class speeds.

I would also like to thank PCP, Pindar, Prinovis and Wyndeham for their huge support in this production.'
