Reno Gazette-Journal Readies for Black Friday Shopping

Posted: Updated:

With Black Friday being such a big shopping day, Thanksgiving is one of the biggest days for the Reno Gazette-Journal newspaper.

They say they printed about 18-metric tons of paper. With more than 50 inserts, covered with holiday shopping deals, this year's paper tips the scales around four pounds.

And it takes a lot of people to get the papers out.

"Lots of extra people, we have 30 extra people...We have to hand stuff them because the package is too big to fit through our insert machine," says Joe Morales, general manager of Gannett Publishing Service.

Morales says it took them about two hours to print, then another two hours just to package them for delivery.
