Subscribers to The Herald Ledger's print edition will be billed a small, annual "technology fee" beginning next month.

For a single $5 payment, print subscribers will have full access to HeraldLedger.com for the entire year, provided they continue with their print subscription.

With full online access, readers can access obituaries posted as they are released, read back issues, use searchable archives and find news not available in the print edition.
