Eagle goes full color

For the first time in 75 years, every page of The Eagle will be in full color this year. The Eagle is being printed at the Ogden Standard Examiner printing facility and its publisher offered to print the full-color paper for the same cost as last year, which only had the front page and back page in color.
Up until the ‘90s, The Eagle was printed in black and white. Because of the extra price of printing color, it was used sparingly in one or two issues each year. A few years ago, color was added to all issues on only the front and back page.
The photos on The Eagle web page have always been in color as is the PDF version on the web. “Now we have a college newspaper that few schools in Utah can match with all issues and pages in full color, that is exciting,” says adviser Susan Polster. “The best part, it is not costing our budget any more for printing nor delivery costs.”
Sun Advocate Publisher, Richard Shaw, struck the deal for printing of The Eagle in full color with the Ogden company. The Sun Advocate recently added full color to all its pages and transports The Eagle to USU Eastern’s campus.
