At the Print Shop!

At the Print Shop!

As part of our cross-country family adventure, we decided to swing by Transcontinental Printers to finally meet the people who print our magazines and to take a little tour of the print shop.  It.Was.Amazing!  As an added bonus, three of our publications--Carcross Today, The Last Great Road Trip and Abenteuer Alaska Yukon were all there going through the various stages of the printing process.

Then we discovered a pallet of covers for The Last Great Road Trip!

The 13 'cages' on the left all contain various parts (minus the cover) of The Last Great Road Trip. From here, it heads to the binding and cutting machine and then off to shipping.
