PRINTING PLANT TOURS

Tours of the North Creek printing facility in Bothell are conducted by appointment only. We do not offer tours at our other facilities.

North Creek tours take approximately one hour and our scheduling fluctuates according to the season, for example the school year. Tour scheduling is also based on production schedules, and when the presses are running. We can accommodate tours of up to 35 people at a time. For safety reasons, the minimum age is eight.

The tour includes following the newspapers "hot off the press" through our packaging center and out the door to the trucks. One of the most popular parts of the tour is watching the robots pick up enormous rolls of newsprint and move them to the press.

To schedule a tour, call 425/489-7000 or e-mail Kate Palmer at kpalmer@seattletimes.com.
