Recordnews Printing and Mailing was established in 1888. That is correct – 1888! Current owners Jon and Jamie Males have owned the business for the last 32 years. They have expertise in marketing services, printing and presorted business mail.
Recordnews currently has four full-time and six part-time employees. Three employees are Basehor residents, with a fourth starting this summer to help with mailing services. They also just hired Faith Leonard, a 2018 graduate of Basehor-Linwood High School, to work as an Administrative Assistant, helping to coordinate the multiple processes of their day-to-day activities.
The company produces two weekly newspapers, The Record and The Wyandotte Echo, both of which have circulation in Wyandotte County.
In October of 2010, Recordnews was featured in the New York Times for their work in the field of political printing and mailing.
Recordnews is well-known across the state of Kansas for their political work producing campaign pieces for local, state and nationwide races.
“We don’t take political sides, and therefore work with Democrats, Republicans and Independents,” owner Jon Males says. “We have had two presidential candidates used our services. That resulted in a win for one, and loss for the other. We don’t take credit or blame.”
