Many of the sources listed in this article are specialized advertising agencies. These agencies in turn have relationships with regional printers allowing mark ups on printing prices. This is the standard advertising business model.

Many universities have in-plant printing operations who can and should be doing the print production on most of these campaigns. If the print production were turned over to the in-plants literally thousands of dollars could be saved. However, such arrangements need to be executed at the negotiation and contract stage of hiring these agencies.
