More than 260 printing companies from across the United States and Canada participated in the first-quarter 2022 PRINTING United Alliance/NAPCO Research State of the Industry Survey. Participants included commercial printers, graphic and sign producers, apparel decorators, functional printers, and package printers/converters. Annual sales range from less than $250,000 to more than $250 million. More than 70.0% have diversified beyond their primary printing segment.

Survey topics included expectations for first-half 2022 sales, operating cost inflation, and pre-tax profitability, what printing companies plan to do better this year than they did last year, and how they are protecting themselves from the supply chain crisis.
