    Growing the Community

    Garland Shetler opened Shetler Printing because he saw a need for Middlefield, OH to have a printing company in town to help the community grow. Shetler printing began with letterpress style printing when they opened their doors.

    Shetler Racket Store was owned by Sam and Anna Shetler. It was the type of store that carried a little bit of everything. The smallest boy in the picture was Garland Shetler who went on to start Shetler Printing in 1932.

    Good News

    Garland Shetler bought the Good News Newspaper from two men in Windsor, OH. One of the many unique things Garland would do to grow his business is he would ask people who had discarded his paper, why they had discarded them? He would then ask them what they would like to to see in the paper, and then adjust accordingly.
