World Color Signs Pacts
MONTREAL—World Color Press, formerly Quebecor World, has signed a multiyear agreement to continue printing ESPN The Magazine, a bi-weekly sports news magazine with a rate base circulation of more than two million and a total audience readership of more than 14 million. World Color Press began printing ESPN The Magazine when it launched in 1998.
“Quebecor World has been a trusted partner in helping us launch and build a highly successful magazine brand,” notes Chris Noble, senior director of production for ESPN The Magazine. “It prints and delivers a high-quality magazine for us with a total solutions offering, from premedia through mailing and distribution.”
World Color Press has also inked a multiyear contract extension with long-time customer, USA WEEKEND. World Color will continue to produce the majority of the Sunday magazine through October 2015, extending a 24-year relationship. PI
