Why Printers Exiting Their Businesses Are at a Disadvantage
If you’re a printer who falls into any one of these categories, you’re going to be at an unnecessary disadvantage when you choose to retire or sell your business:
- Your sales are flat and your margins are shrinking.
- You haven’t kept pace with technology and the widening needs of your customers.
- You haven’t devised an exit strategy or succession plan.
The printing business is confronted with formidable challenges and fundamental change. If you only had to contend with black and white issues like overcapacity and declining prices, you could somehow manage, cut here, trim there.
But you’re faced with even greater threats to your livelihood that put a dull finish on your future: postal rates that continue to reduce mailings, the increase in digital to deliver documents and data, and the decline in print-based marketing.
You can sure try going at it alone to be a survivor. But, wouldn’t you rather go out looking back with a real sense of accomplishment and with the prospects for a rich and rewarding retirement? Of course you would. And YOU CAN!
