The Jackson Hole News & Guide first became WebPress customers in 1999 when Grand Teton Publishing, home of the Jackson Hole Guide, purchased 2 Quad-Stack units to add to their Goss line.   In 2002 the Guide merged with the Jackson Hole News, and a year later, added three Atlas perfectors and an Atlas Folder to their facility.  2004 brought the purchase of a 3rd Quad-Stack.

Merging the needs of a local community with  information for tourists from all walks of life, including "the rich and famous", presents a unique set of circumstances for publishing in Jackson Hole. Kevin Olson, Publisher, states: " As a weekly, we strive for meaningful, long-form journalism (and briefs too), images, graphics, clean design - all to the delight of our readers. As a resort destination, we're writing for residents and visitors to give them a sense of community in an area that sees tens of thousands of visitors a day during the peak summer months."  A great looking printed page is "part of our stamp of quality.  It says we understand people are pressed for time, so we want to offer a great product while we have their attention." 

"The Quad-Stacks give us an edge since they help our pressmen achieve great color without a lot of fight.  If the opportunity (for additional equipment) presented itself, WebPress equipment would be my first choice."  Kevin also responded that WebPress personnel are "accessible, responsive, knowledgeable, and personable.  It's one of the great attributes of WebPress."

In total, the News and Guide production facility prints a daily, four weeklies, and a shopper as well as other commercial jobs including national park newspapers, non-profit newsletters, course schedules for the community college, programs, etc.
WebPress is happy to be able to support the Jackson Hole News and Guide in its efforts to provide consistent quality for its readers.
