"Inside" the Sunday Package

On Thursday of each week the Washington Post sends us 2,500 pre-packs for the newspaper that Sunday. There are a number of names for the advance part of the paper such as "Comics", "Guts" or "Inserts.
________________________________________
Two of the main ingredients that come in the package are the Washington Post magazine and the weekly Television Guide. Others would argue that the Funny Papers and the sales ads are of equal importance but most go in search of the TV Book and the Magazine.

The inserts are put together each week in Springfield and then trucked to us. 99 times out of 100 they are complete but there is the rare occasion that one of the items comes up missing. We encourage to call our office (540)-743-4660 if you are missing either item and we will get one sent back out during our Monday morning delivery hours.

Once or twice a calender year the Post will have a week where they do not produce a magazine and that will be the case on January 9, 2011.
