Three Printers Refuse LGBT Student Publication
(Editor’s note: The full story includes the language and images that the printers reportedly found objectionable and gives them the opportunity to explain their decisions.)
Three printing companies have refused to publish the spring edition of Fusion, a Campus Progress-sponsored LGBT magazine at Kent State University, citing concerns over its images and language. The three Ohio-based printing companies that rejected Fusion in its final form—Freeport Press Inc. in Freeport, Hess Print Solutions in Brimfield, and Davis Graphic Communication Solutions in Bamberton—cited similar reasons for refusing to publish the magazine.
…a fourth company agreed to produce the issue by Friday. But that company, Printing Concepts, in Stow, OH, is charging Fusion $2,200 in rush and delivery fees, which Freeport would not have charged.
