Penobscot Bay Press is based in Stonington, with about 20 full-time and part-time employees, and many additional contributors. We also staff an office in downtown Blue Hill, which serves as our mailing center.

Our periodical publications center on 10 towns on the Maine coast, including three island towns. The total population of the towns served is about 11,000 year-round residents, with that number more than doubling in the summer tourist and visitor season.
