Paper size and print area reduction

Eleven printing centres representing two thirds of our 1.14 million net-paid circulation will go for both paper size and print area reduction straightaway on October 3, 2006.

Naturally, we have had to make certain design adjustments. Worked out in consultation with our master designer, Dr. Mario Garcia of Garcia Media, these simple, elegant and detailed design adjustments have enabled us to offset the print area reduction and assure our 4.06 million readers (National Readership Study 2006) that there will be no sacrifice of editorial content.
