WHY A NEWS GRAPHIC SERVICE?

A picture is worth a thousand words... and finding the right images for your News can be a time consuming and difficult proposition. At MGN Online, we take the time to find, produce, store, and deliver News Graphics on a daily basis. There are some very practical reasons to use a News Graphic Service:

  1. Valuable production time spent building News Graphics does not generate revenue for your company.
  2. Locating, producing and archiving images each day is a time consuming effort.
  3. Many images produced and archived will never be used again.
  4. Images obtained from Google and other sites can lead to Copyright infringement.
  5. Keeping up with logo changes from Sports Teams and Corporate Logos is an ongoing process.
  6. News Graphic production requires specialty software that is constantly changing and costly.
  7. Finding, creating and managing an image database is a full-time business unto itself.
