Company History

Media Trends has been successfully providing layout and printing services to school publications for over 25 years. Media Trends was founded in 1985 by Ron Miskoff, a longtime newspaper editor and university journalism professor.

Media Trends started as a sub-division of the printing company owned and operated by Ron and his wife, Lori, in Perth Amboy, NJ. Media Trends initially provided publishing services for Middlesex County Trends, the community newspaper founded by Ron Miskoff. However, Media Trends soon was providing layout and printing services to several local student newspapers, as well.

In 1987, Media Trends was established as a separate company and in 1990, when the printing business was sold, Media Trends’ operations moved to Edison, NJ. As the number of newspapers produced by Media Trends grew, several graphic art specialists were hired and a larger office space was necessary. In 1998, Media Trends' moved its production facilities to its present location in Metuchen, NJ.

The most recent change to the company occurred in late 2010, when Lori Miskoff assumed ownership of the company, which is how Media Trends became Media Trends LLC.
