This article reports that businesses in the printing industry continue to face significant challenges to improving margins, such as rising input prices of raw materials and services, according to the BPIF's latest survey of trends in the printing industry. The latest results of the quarterly "Directions" survey found that general and promotional business enterprises are slightly more successful in raising selling prices and margins, with 7% of the 97 companies who responded to the survey reporting the former and 13% the latter through higher work volumes.
