Brattleboro no longer prints newspapers.
Neither the Commons nor the Reformer prints their papers in Brattleboro. I found this out after a reader asked if any papers were printed in town and I asked a few questions.
For over a century The Reformer and many other papers were printed in Brattleboro. With active news and book presses running around the clock, Brattleboro was a printing town.
Earlier this year a corporate (ie, non-local) decision was made to move the printing of the Reformer to Pittsfield, MA. where sister publication the Berkshire Eagle is printed. This follows consolidation trends in the newspaper industry.
One side effect of printing a paper over an hour away is that deadlines for stories get shifted earlier. Breaking news in the evening might have to wait an extra day before it can get out to readers.
The Reformer retains a crew to do some commercial printing.
