Edwards Printing handles the web press printing needs of English and foreign language newspapers from across the Southeast at its new Westminster, SC, location, along with printing the company’s The Journal daily newspaper.
The Edwards Printing operation is the largest of its kind in Upstate South Carolina. It features a fully refurbished, 14-unit Goss Urbanite press that offers nearly unlimited color printing options for those seeking a quality look for a reasonable price. Inserting, mailing, delivery and other services are also available through Edwards Printing.
The new Edwards Printing facility provides jobs for more than 70 people, including press operators, pre-press staff, inserting personnel and newspaper delivery carriers, with plans to add 30-50 more over the next couple of years.
In addition to printing the daily editions and special sections of The Journal, Edwards Printing currently produces 35 different titles each month. Many of these are in different languages, including Chinese, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish. On a monthly basis, the plant prints close to 2 million copies. These publications are from throughout South Carolina, Atlanta, North Georgia and the Western North Carolina areas.
