Wetaskiwin Pipestone Flyer switching tabloid sizes

Slight change in Pipestone Flyer size won’t affect readers at all

The Wetaskiwin Pipestone Flyer has been growing in leaps and bounds lately, but readers may notice a change soon that they may be curious about.

The Wetaskiwin Pipestone Flyer’s move to Wetaskiwin last spring has resulted in so much growth that a change is needed to accommodate some of our business.

On the 1st of September The Wetaskiwin Pipestone Flyer will be moving to an 11-inch square box size. This is a bit smaller than the newspaper’s current size, and the change is being made to accommodate mailing, delivery and inserts.

The size change won’t have any affect on our readers. Your Pipestone Flyer will still contain the same great, local content readers have come to expect from Black Press Media.

The slight size change is going to make your community newspaper an even better product. “We’re always looking for ways to better serve our readers and customers and the format change will give us some additional flexibility,” says Mary Kemmis, President Prairie Division, Black Press and publisher of The Wetaskiwin Pipestone Flyer.

Sales manager Christina Komives said, “As a community newspaper for the past 22 years, we understand the responsibility we have to maintain high standards in all areas of our business. Our services evolve on an ongoing basis, reflecting not only the changing needs of our customers but our commitment to innovation. I’m excited for the size change. It will create more flexibility in our available marketing options for local businesses.”
