First inkjet newspaper printing operation goes live

from Beyond-Print -
"(February 12, 2009 – G. Alexander) London’s Daily Mail is now being printed in the US using inkjet technology. Alphagraphics is handling the production work, using a Screen Truepress Jet520 and Hunkeler finishing equipment.

The system is installed in northern New Jersey and serves the New York metropolitan area. It can produce hundreds of copies of a 24-page paper each hour. Initially, there will be excess capacity but, according to an article at, additional titles will be printed on the machine by the end of March."
Some of that "excess capacity" could be used to produce 24 page textPapers. Perhaps textPapers is a way to not use "textbooks" and also refer to newsPapers? It might be plausible that a newsPaper could use it's excess capacity to supply the content and make the sale.
