NewsNotes for newspapers is trademarked by NAStar, Inc. They are designed and tested to run on the most popular automated applicators running up to 80,000 pieces per hour without incident.

The financial benefits of NewsNotes to the newspaper industry are enormous. For example, a newspaper with an average daily circulation of 75,000 and Sunday of 100,000 could add over $1,000,000 to its revenue stream and over $500,000 in net profit annually. The recuperation of applicating equipment expenses takes months, not years.

NewsNotes™ Advantages
5 working day or less turnaround!

Would you demand your advertisers place their ads 3 to 4-weeks ahead of time? Do you think you’d sell more with a “5 working day or less turnaround” program? Aladdin wants to make it easier for your clients to buy NewsNotes with faster turnaround and no rush charges!

Exact count ordering!

If your ROP is 76,542, and you want to order 76,542; that’s what you should get…right?
Aladdin doesn’t force you to order in higher increments you’ll never use, or charge you an extra 5% for an exact count! We want to make your selling effortless without putting roadblocks in your way. Keep it simple; order exactly what you need...exactly what your prospects want!!

Both edges have repositional adhesive!

Aladdin’s adhesive running on both backside edges virtually eliminates ripping or tearing of the advertising note during automatic application or “in-bag” insertion. “Flying edges” that don’t allow full adhesion on the paper can lead to machine jams at your facility and bent corners on your client’s message copy. Go with NewsNotes' full edge adhesion on both edges to reduce downtime during press runs.

Repositional adhesive is water-based and repulpable!

Unlike solvent-based adhesives, Aladdin’s NewsNotes not only meet Tappi 213 repulpability standards, but easily adapts to existing waste streams and is better for the environment. NewsNotes is a “greener” product; more friendly to our environment!

Round cornered!

NewsNotes provide a stronger professional image and are less likely to “hang-up” when automatically applied out of the box. Square cornered notes are more susceptible to damage during both the application and inserting process. Aladdin’s round cornered labels have a more professional perception than square-cornered notes.

Much lower freight costs than competitors! (more profit for you!)

We have all heard of the exorbitant freight charges provided by other note providers. This is because shipment is made from one U.S. location. Aladdin and the NewsNotes team ship from one of ten geographically placed locations; one of which is within a 1 working day ship point of you! Depending on your location, we feel confident Aladdin can cut your freight expense in half or better with delivery next day via regular ground transportation. Faster delivery at less than half the freight cost means more profit for you!

All plates and dies are included in low piece prices!

White semi-gloss or non-phosphorescent yellow stock same low price!

Easy email proofing system at no cost*!

Does it take 2-3 days for a simple proof, and then you're charged $10 to $30. The template is on our website available for downloading, so you just fill in the art, and email it back. We generate an electronic proof for you to sign, and its done! No charges and same day proofing! *A standard proof for 4-color process work is for details.

All NewsNotes are poly-bagged to lockout humidity and protect them from ambient contaminants!

Humidity, temperature, and the ambient environment have the greatest effect on any label’s performance. Our Poly-bag closures protect NewsNotes from harmful conditions. So, if you are having difficulty running notes this summer due to high humidity or this winter due to lack of humidity, consider NewsNotes poly-bagging for a problem-free run!

Unique promotional printing gives customers hundreds of selling options!

Place a scrambled message, UPC Code, or QR code on your NewsNote. This will motivate prospects to visit the advertiser’s website or “snap” the QR code to unscramble a message, to see if they’ve won a prize, to receive a discount, or to view a video. No one offers this promotional value except NewsNotes!
