About Us

Over 70 years have passed since a young man named Arch Baumgartner left college and a job as an ice truck driver to take over the reins of the local weekly newspaper, The Milford Mail. He had 600 subscribers and facilities for hand-setting type before buying an abandoned building one year later to house his wares.

From that humble beginning, this family-owned business has evolved into a diverse combination of newspaper and magazine publications and commercial printing. Fourteen weekly, one bi-weekly, ten monthly and one bi-monthly publication are published under the name of The Papers Incorporated. The company also prints a host of weekly newspapers and advertising circulars, plus school and college publications.

The Papers publishes six editions of Senior Life, monthly newspapers catering to the “over 50” crowd in Indianapolis, Cincinnati and across Northern Indiana. “Over 50” is when the good life begins and Senior Life emphasizes the prime time of life.
