Consumers are demanding fewer of the industry's services, as the proliferation of computers and design software continues to rise. This trend will force more firms out of the industry, as businesses and consumers perform more printing tasks on their own. The remaining firms will rely on niche markets and higher-value services to maintain revenue.
This industry comprises establishments that provide traditional printing activities, such as short-run offset printing or prepress service, in combination with document photocopying service. Prepress services include receiving documents in electronic format and directly duplicating from the electronic file and then formatting, colorizing and modifying the document to improve presentation.
