A message from the editor: November 2021 printing problems

Those with zip codes beginning with “423” may have experienced delivery problems with their November 2021 issues of The Western Kentucky Catholic. Some households received multiple repeated copies while others did not receive any at all. After investigation, the WKC learned this was an error on the part of the printing company that we use to print our newspaper. The company had experienced a computer glitch, which botched the addresses printed on the mailing labels – resulting in repeated address labels for some people, and deleting other addresses.

To make up for this mistake, our printer covered the cost of printing and shipping additional copies of the November WKC to households who were accidentally excluded. Households who received multiple copies were not sent any more.

Since this printing and shipping process was expedited in order for the missed homes to receive the WKC as soon as possible, the edges of the second round of newspapers were not trimmed nor stapled together. If your November issue looked like this, that is because it was part of the second round of shipments.

I’d like to thank all of our readers who called to graciously and kindly inform us that they had not received their WKC, or that they had received multiples. We appreciated their patience and understanding, and were encouraged by their dedication to their diocesan newspaper.
