Make Your Voice Heard: The Print Business Indicators Survey
In today’s unprecedented business environment, basing decisions on facts has never been more important. In the weeks and months ahead, reliable industry business indicators will be essential for monitoring what’s happening in all printing industry segments—from commercial to sign and display to packaging to apparel decorators to functional printers. The combined PRINTING United Alliance and NAPCO media research teams invite you to join their industry-wide initiative to measure key business indicators by taking a 3 to 5 minute survey. This is the second survey of our initiative, and all results collected will be kept strictly confidential and reported in the aggregate.
This essential initiative will provide key and ongoing benchmarks to help providers of print and specialty graphics optimize decision making in unprecedented economic conditions. The research will provide:
- The most up-to-date indexes of business indicators to show how the industry is reacting to the economic environment
- Analysis of these indicators
- Actions organizations are taking to protect their companies from the effects of the COVID-19 crisis.
Your participation is vital to documenting how the industry is responding. The results of the research will be published on the PRINTING United Alliance and NAPCO Media websites. In addition, participants will have the option to join our business panel and contribute to the research on an ongoing basis. Companies that join the panel will receive exclusive in-depth analysis reports (not made available publicly) of our COVID-19 research findings.
The research will measure indicators in the following segments:
- Commercial printers
- Package printers/converters
- Graphic and sign producers
- Apparel decorators
- Functional printers
Please join our initiative and help us to deliver solid industry measures and indicators to guide your operation.
