Printer Sues Publisher for Unpaid Bills
MANSFIELD, OH—A printer here is trying to be paid for two years' worth of printing, totaling more than $400,000, it claims it is owed by the publisher of church directories, according to the Mansfield News Journal.
XPress Publishing and Printing says the customer, Universal Church Directories, made sporadic payments on its tab, but still had a balance of $420,852, accrued for the printing of church directories and similar material, the News Journal said. The debt was reportedly recorded between July of 2011 and July of 2013.
According to Universal Church Directories' Website, the company was founded as United Church Directories in 1963 and grew to serve 10,000 churches per year. Universal was created in 2002 and served churches via a directory that could be updated electronically using CD-ROMs, the newspaper reported.
