Commercial Printing

Brief Excerpt from Industry Overview Chapter:

Companies in this industry engage in printing on apparel and textile products, glass, metal, paper, and plastic; they may also provide lithographic, gravure, screen, flexographic, digital, and letterpress services. Major companies include Cenveo, Quad/Graphics, and RRD (all based in the US); as well as Bertelsmann (Germany); Cimpress (the Netherlands); DNP Group and Toppan Printing (Japan); and TC Transcontinental (Canada).


Amid lower overall print volumes and reduced revenue, the commercial printing industry is expected to consolidate as smaller players are less able to make the necessary investments in digital print and marketing services, and other technologies necessary to survive.


Major services of commercial printers include digital printing which accounts for about 40% of the industry's revenue. Other services include advertising printing (15%), label printing (about 15%), screen printing on garments & apparel (about 15%), and direct mail advertising printing (10%).
