We have global sourcing capabilities that we utilize on a daily basis for our clients and it’s really all about trying to create the most economical value added solution that the customers are looking for an oftentimes that has nothing to do with print, but most times it is related and in some cases we print materials that go on fixtures and go in permanent point of sale type of devices.
