Arizona Daily Sun moves its press operations to the Arizona Republic | Local

The Arizona Daily Sun and its employees serve Flagstaff and surrounding communities. Our team of dedicated employees provide local news coverage for our community and advertising options to help businesses grow. As a Flagstaff-based company, our team of journalists, editors, photojournalists, sales reps, creative designers, broadcast managers, carriers, and their families and friends are all proud to be part of this community.

We’ve been printing our newspapers here in Flagstaff for over 80 years and at the Thompson plant for over 26 years. The current press is over 55 years old, and it is very difficult to keep an aging press operational. To stay competitive, many newspaper markets have centralized printing at more modern, multimillion-dollar regional presses.

In order to continue to provide quality printing to our readers and business customers, we have made the difficult decision to move the Arizona Daily Sun’s press operations and commercial printing projects to the Phoenix Deer Valley facility. We do this with a heavy heart because of the dedication of the production and press staff who have ensured that we continue to produce quality publications.

The move to the new Phoenix facility will begin May 11. Currently, our broadcast team delivers The Arizona Daily Sun, The Arizona Republic, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and several other national titles to Flagstaff and other areas of Coconino County. With the relocation of printing to Phoenix, all publications will be trucked at the same time to Flagstaff for delivery to readers.

The 20,000 square foot facility on Thompson Street will go on sale in the coming weeks. And when the sale of the building is complete, we will be moving to a new location in the Flagstaff area.

Digital transformation continues to change the way traditional media deliver the information and advertising consumed by our local audiences. The Arizona Daily Sun and its staff are at the forefront of this transformation as we continue to grow digital subscribers, audience on, and new digital solutions for businesses through Amplified Digital Agency.

Our staff will continue to call Flagstaff home and provide local news to the community as well as provide services to local businesses. If you have any questions or concerns, you can reach me at [email protected]
