PRIMIR Research Findings on Value-Added Printing and Finishing to be Highlighted in Print13 Seminar

Monday, August 05, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

Reston, VA—PRIMIR, the Print Industries Market Information and Research Organization, announced a presentation to be held at PRINT 13 that will feature the research findings from its new study, "Value-Added Printing & Finishing for Improved Profitability." This research addresses high-end color, new finishing products and techniques, special coatings, foiling, laminating, scented inks, raised inks, brand protection and security, metallic inks, metalized substrates, stitching and die cutting, and more.  It explores use and effectiveness of these 'value-added' services and identifies how brand owners incorporate them into their product advertising and packaging. It also identifies cost constraints and return on investment, along with usage trends and opportunities by print application.

Hal Hinderliter, Principal, Hal Hinderliter Consulting Services, is conducting the research for PRIMIR. He will present a preview of the PRIMIR research findings at a PRINT 13 seminar entitled, Value-Added Print: Boom or Bust?, on Tuesday, September 10 at 8:30 a.m. at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.

According to Hinderliter, "Adding value to print is often touted as a way to improve the profitability of print service providers, but until now there has been no definitive research on the topic. With PRIMIR's permission, in this PRINT 13 seminar I'll detail information gleaned from the study's cross-sectional survey of print service providers, print buyers and brand owners along with industry experts and leading vendors. PRIMIR's new research explores the current state of adoption for value-added features and services, predicts the future direction of these markets and reveals potential threats from disruptive technologies, while providing needed insight as the industry comes to terms with the declining use of commodity printing."

The session will address:

  • The primary reasons cited by print buyers for using value-added features/services
  • Trends in the use of value-added print from the past to today 
  • How some companies have successfully implemented value-added services
  • The impact of value-adds on printers' profitability
  • What the future may hold for companies who provide value-added features/services, and much more.

Print company owners and managers, design agency owners and managers, vendors, brand owners, PRIMIR members and anyone who is curious about the true importance of value-added services will find this seminar valuable.

The complete published report of the research findings will be circulated to all PRIMIR members in early fall.
