Editorial Staff

The Star news staff works to cover every facet of city, Custer County and area news - whether it be community happenings, school, government, sports, agriculture, environment, business, churches or features about local people and events.

Since The Star is a member of the Associated Press, it also prints state, national and world news. Likewise, the AP picks up Star stories of statewide interest and distributes them on its media network.

In addition to local news, The Star news staff produces a number of special sections throughout the year featuring local sports, schools, hunting, weddings, home improvement, Christmas, and the annual visitor's guide.

If you have any news item that would be of interest to Custer County readers, please contact one of our news staff.    

We want to hear from you!

Commercial Printing

Do you need newspapers, advertising inserts, tabloids or booklets printed? The Miles City Star production department is fully equipped to handle your job.


Our press prints far more than The Miles City Star. It also prints many other publications, including daily, weekly and monthly newspapers, as well as other journals. Full-color printing is done on a six-unit Goss Press with heavy-duty folder folder.


Let us walk you through what we can do for you:

Prepress: At the pre-press station, our composition and graphics experts can design and lay out your publication on our Macintosh computers. We also provide high-quality black and white and full-color scanning. If you have done the layout yourself, bring your job in on a CD for transfer to our machines. Or, you can upload your job to our FTP site.

Software: The computers, which are equipped with InDesign,  Photoshop, Illustrator, and Acrobat - send the documents to our computer-to-plate system that produces your pages directly to the press plate.

Computer to Plate: The Star has a state-of-the-art computer-to-plate system. This eliminates the negative step of the printing process and produces the image directly to the plate. This allows us to get better registration and increased quality.

Post -press: Once your job is printed, we can prepare it for shipment in a number of ways. We can take care of book binding, if needed. Next, we can label, strap, string or box your publication, or sort and bag it, and mail it, deliver it or have delivery arranged!
