The Herald said the move was not designed to replace journalists
The Herald newspaper is to move some production from its headquarters in Glasgow to a centre in Yorkshire.
The paper has signed a deal with the Press Association (PA) to provide sub-editing of news and features articles.
This is similar to a deal already in place for its sister newspaper, the Glasgow Evening Times.
News stories will still be selected by Herald staff in Glasgow but page design and headline writing will be carried out by PA staff in Howden.
A spokesman for The Herald newspaper said the move was not designed to replace journalist staff but to increase capacity.
PA, which handles more than 9,000 pages of outsourced news production for 220 titles, has also signed a deal to take on many of the production tasks at the London Evening Standard.
Tony Watson, managing director of PA, said: "We offer the reassurance of pages produced with customers' values, style and standards and, particularly important in the current economic climate, cost benefits made possible through economies of scale."
The Herald was one of many Scottish newspapers to shed large numbers of staff over recent months, including those with expertise in production.
Changes in Scotland's newspaper industry also saw The Scotsman, based in Edinburgh, shut its printing presses in the capital, and sign a contract with the Daily Record's owners to print in Glasgow.
