The press was so big, and so heavy, the task of moving it into the new Karlstad Advocate building went to the Leonard Thompson House Moving Company. A few years later, Publisher Dane Nordine purchased the Lancaster Herald, Lake Bronson Budget and Kennedy Star and combined them into the North Star News. Once the North Star News was formed, the subscription base more than tripled and it became practical to make the change from metal type printing to offset, and the press became obsolete.
