Practically all CPrint shops have 20 or fewer workers, most are in the 4 to 12 range (including owners) – although some are bigger and some smaller. Sales are anywhere from $200,000 to over $3 million, but mostly in the $300,000 – $1.2 million range.
Our shops are owner-managed and most have a single location. Many are operated by the founder although a few go back several generations. Essentially, we are family-based business owners who happen to be printers. Half of us have a family member working with us in the business and one-fourth have a son or daughter in the business.
As for equipment, most have digital output device such as the Konica-Minolta 6500. Many of us, provide or sell wide-format services and thus are involved in point-of-purchase displays as well as signs.
Most of us have or recently have had offset equipment. We print pleasing color as well as one and two-color work. Additionally, about one-fourth maintain a mailing operation. All have a standard light bindery as well.
As for offset equipment, many have true two-color presses, however, digital printing supersedes offset work in most shops.
