LAS VEGAS, NV - Publishing solutions provider Creel Printing has landed a multi-year, multiple-edition contract with Daily Racing Form. The agreement spans front-end processing through distribution of seven of the company's tabloids.
One of the most complex newspapers in the nation, Daily Racing Form publishes up to 2,000 unique pages daily. Creel's unique capabilities and specialized technologies will provide the publisher with significant time and cost savings. By developing customized software, Creel has automated file uploading and imposition, enabling pages to go directly to plate. Creel has further streamlined production by attaching large LED screens to its presses, from which full flip-book versions of the newspapers can be viewed and approved-eliminating all bluelines.
These advancements, along with Creel's closed-loop color controls, give Daily Racing Form "green" benefits, including less ink and as well as lower make-ready/spoilage waste. Creel's location and distribution efficiencies also support expedited shipping and reduced freight costs.
"Publishers today need new efficiencies and savings opportunities," said Chris Evans, V.P. Premedia & Customer Solutions. "Creel is proud to deliver customized solutions that answer these needs and give them a tangible advantage. Because we have the proven technical and R&D expertise in-house, we can help customers achieve their objectives quicker with greater results."
"We are thrilled to support Daily Racing Form, and become part of its impressive publishing heritage," added Allan G. Creel, President of Creel Printing. The 116-year-old Daily Racing Form produces the country's only daily newspaper dedicated to a single sport, horse racing.
