Intelligently researched distribution lets Point Roberts Press, Inc. 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).
