On any given evening at The Baltimore Sun’s printing plant in Port Covington, tens of thousands of papers hum through the four-story tall press that dates to 1992.

The 60-acre facility produces millions of papers each week.

This time of year, the presses and mailroom staff are buzzing in preparation for the holidays. The Thanksgiving paper will be filled with pages of Black Friday ads from around 44 advertisers. One of the biggest editions of the year will weigh about three pounds and have a distribution of more than 220,000 copies. Early editions will be on sale at participating retailers on Wednesday, Nov. 22.
