Readers may have had a hard time navigating the Oct. 10 edition of The Hatchet. During the printing process, some of the issue’s pages were inadvertently printed out of order. Any mistakes are normally caught in the proofing stage. The company that prints The Hatchet was unable to explain how the mistake occurred.
Southern Maryland Printing, located in Waldorf, Md., prints The Hatchet as well as several other college newspapers in the area, including the University of Maryland Diamondback and Georgetown Hoya. Owned by The Washington Post Company, Southern Maryland has been The Hatchet’s printer for several years and has never previously committed an error like Monday’s.
