Sales & Marketing

Semper International's latest Industry Insight Survey Semper International, the leading placement firm for skilled help for printing, pre-media, and marketing firms, reported this week that print industry profits declined for the second straight quarter with just 70 percent of all responding companies recording a profitable 4th quarter to end 2015. Coupled with a 33 percent decline in the percentage of companies reporting increased sales during the most current two weeks, it appears that recent pessimistic forecasts increased in the final quarter of 2015. Despite these ill tidings, sales projections for the upcoming quarter are, in fact up, with more than 50 percent of reporting companies anticipating growth.
