The YDR will take on a slightly different size on Monday
The York Daily Record/Sunday News will be slightly narrower on Monday.
Narrower, but with the same amount of stories, photos and words.
And the type size will be the same.
Assistant Managing Editor Brad Jennings has borrowed a little from the space between columns, between letters and words to pull this off.
The reader probably won’t notice this change in what’s called web width, designed to save newsprint, or the paper a newspaper is printed on.
Another change to note: Our newspaper goes from the computers of our journalists directly to plates, skipping the creation of negatives.
Before this point, the negatives were used to “burn” plates, but new computer-to-plate (CTP) equipment skips the costly need for negatives.
