The Printing Impressions 400

December 2005
Now in its 22nd year, the Printing Impressions 400 provides the industry’s most comprehensive ranking of the leading printing companies in the United States and Canada.

The listings include company name and headquarters location; parent company, if applicable; current and previous year’s rankings; most recent and previous year’s fiscal sales; percentage change; primary specialties; principal officer(s); and number of employees, manufacturing plants and total press units. (Download a PDF version of the entire listing by clicking here.)

Financial information for the PI 400 rankings was provided voluntarily by privately held firms. We also did not allow companies that were close to completing a fiscal year to provide projected/estimated sales figures. As a result, printers shown on this list were most often reporting 2004 sales as their most recent figures. Revenues for Canadian companies were converted to U.S. dollar equivalents, where applicable.

Despite our repeated attempts, various privately held companies refused to divulge their annual printing sales figures. As a result, they were not included. And some firms that did participate, notably RR Donnelley, refused or could not break down their annual sales by the various print market specialties that we track.

Company rankings for the current and previous year are based on figures reported to us in 2005. Therefore, printers that revised their previous year revenues may have changed their ranking as compared with where they were actually ranked in last year’s Printing Impressions 400. Similarly, the percentage change in sales is calculated on the most recent sales information provided.

Also, individual printing companies that are part of larger graphic arts networks—such as Consolidated Graphics—are not listed separately. In essence, to do so would be to show sales figures twice. Instead, only the revenues of the entire umbrella corporation are included. In the case of a holding company that owns a graphic arts firm, the printing operation is listed in our rankings with the holding company’s name appearing beneath it.
