We could communicate with a series of dashes and dots, but we think we’ll stick with our current means of helping you sell: our weekly printed edition, our website and our radio show, Paper Shop Live!

Samuel F. Morse was born on this day in 1791, and aside from his talent as an artist and painter, he helped invent the telegraph & developed his namesake means of communication. When you hear the words “Morse Code”, it’s likely that you immediately think of the international symbol of distress: SOS. Those three letters don’t stand for any words or phrase in particular – they were chosen for their ease of execution: three dots, three dashes, three dots. Simple to remember, a cinch to interpret.

While we don’t include the telegraph in our arsenal, we do try to make ourselves easy to reach. You can call us at 1-800-537-9377 or fax ad information to us at 570-969-3109. We’re available 24/7 on the web at We invite you to call in ads on the air every Saturday during Paper Shop Live! (9-10 am, phone: 1-888-303-0630) and you’re always welcome to visit us at 330 Montage Mountain Road in Moosic.
