The majority of newspapers are "morning editions." They are normally issued in the early morning, between 1 and 4 a.m., and distributed within three hours. Some papers are "evening editions," meaning they are published early in the afternoon and delivered by 6 p.m. Morning and evening papers were once available in most major cities. Today, only large cities continue to publish both a morning and an evening newspaper.
Newspapers are delivered to homes and businesses throughout the day by carriers, reporters, editors, and others. The type of delivery depends on the size of the city and whether or not there is a regular carrier for the newspaper. In small towns where the same person delivers all the newspapers, he or she will usually deliver the morning edition and then go back out again at some point during the day to pick up the remaining copies. In larger cities where the same person cannot make it from one end of town to the other in one shift, they will divide up their work among several people. Each member of the crew gets a specific section to cover while they are on duty.
In general, the earlier you can collect your paper, the more likely it is that new things will have happened since it was printed. If you want to see what happened earlier in the day, you'll need to get a later edition or check online updates.
Morning dailies' press periods were frequently after midnight, giving time for late-breaking items and coverage of late sporting events to make the morning edition. Afternoon dailies are often printed in the mid-to-late morning hours, allowing publications to reach newsstands by lunch and home-delivery subscribers before they go home from work. The Press Association guidelines define morning as "any time between the publication hour and noon," while afternoon refers to any time between 12pm and when papers next print.
In Canada, newspapers are published at various times throughout the day, depending on the size of the city or town. Large cities like Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver have daily newspapers that are published in the early morning hours, while small towns usually have weekly newspapers that are printed once a week and distributed the same day. In general, larger cities have more advanced printing technologies and thus can produce higher-quality newspapers that will last longer without deteriorating in quality.
In Australia, newspapers are published daily during business hours. Smaller regional newspapers may also be published twice-weekly or even three times per year. Major city dailies are typically printed in large presses with digital finishing systems that allow them to be printed in color. They are then delivered by truck or rail to larger cities where they are sold at newsagents throughout the night. State and local government meetings are covered by reporters who travel to these events with digital cameras to file reports later that day once they return to their office.

In addition to city streets, the Inquirer has distribution centers in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvannia and King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. These centers are not open to the public but the newspaper is delivered there each day around noon.
The delivery time depends on how far you're from one of these distribution centers. If it's in the same county as where you live, you should get your paper within 30 minutes to an hour after it's dropped off. If the distance is greater, like if you live in Delaware County and the center is in Montgomery County, for example, you might have to wait up to four hours.
There are two types of distribution centers - one that serves a single neighborhood or group of neighborhoods (known as a collection) and another that covers a larger area for several newspapers (an aggregate). Each morning, members of the paper's delivery team meet at a central location to divide up their assignments. They then go to different locations within their assigned zone to drop off papers.
