Quad/Graphics Inc. will continue to print USA Weekend under terms of a contract extension between the printer and Gannett Co. Inc.
Quad/Graphics said it will continue to print the “major portion” of the 22 million USA Weekend copies GCI produces each week. The printer added that, beginning in 2016, it will produce additional, and undisclosed, GCI products as well as provide additional freight, logistics and distribution services.
The extension with Quad/Graphics comes on the heels of Gannett’s selection of Chicago-based InnerWorkings to manage third-party printing.
Although the two developments are separate, InnerWorkings will play a role in funneling future work to Quad/Graphics.
