There are dozens of Maine owned daily and weekly newspapers manufactured in the state. Not much Maine newsprint left but the product is local, produced by locals, printed and distributed by locals much like it has for the past 100 years. Maine Press Association maintains a list on its website.

I didn't know that, I thought I saw them advertised at the Natural Living Center as a Maine company. Thank you

I'm a product of Maine. A simple chemical reaction due to the creativity of my dad and mom during a once a year event in the 50's. So I'm told anyway.

Thanks for all the Maine product sites and lists. It gave me the idea of having an all Maine products Xmas and Bday's next year for the few that I still buy for. I did stop by the Newport, ME 'Maine Made' store on route 7 last year on my way back to CA and bought several of my CA friends a coat hanger made of shotgun shells with the Maine artists name inscribed. They all have refrigerator sized safes with gun collections out here so they all appreicated the gifts.

Great thread! We are vacationing in Maine this month and I am going to look for some of these products. I agree, great ideas for Maine-themed birthday or Christmas gifts.
