Located on the waterfront in Blaine, Washington, the company publishes two home-grown newspapers, an outdoor adventure magazine, a summer tourist guide, a wedding guide, websites and maps focusing primarily on northwest Washington and the lower mainland of British Columbia. Point Roberts Press, Inc is well versed in cross-border marketing and distribution.

 

What separates the Point Roberts Press publications from others? Our newspapers provide readers with a superior blend of local news coverage including government, school and general interest stories and photography. We invest in relevant, high quality journalism that addresses the lives of our readers and the communities we serve. Our goal is to be the most valued provider of news, information and advertising in the communities we serve, be they geographical or special interest.

 

Intelligently researched distribution lets Point Roberts Press publications reach targeted consumers, making repeat advertising a commonplace. The Northern Light and All Point Bulletin are unique among Whatcom County newspapers in that we mail to all the homes in their respective zip codes (as well as distributing free bulk copies to accounts). Advertisers achieve total market saturation guaranteeing that their message will be received and read by their target market. No other publications in Whatcom County offer this.

All Point Bulletin, the monthly community newspaper serving Point Roberts, Washington and Tsawwassen, B.C. since 1985.

 

The Northern Light, the weekly community newspaper serving Blaine, Birch Bay and Semiahmoo, Washington since 1995.
