To better understand the current state of the in-plant market, IPG conducted a detailed online survey. This report analyzes that data, examining changes in services that in-plants provide, shifts in products they produce and best practices that leading in-plants follow.
Following a well-attended webinar on Wednesday in which IPG Editor Bob Neubauer analyzed the results of a major new in-plant study, IPG is releasing the resulting report, "Trends and Services in the In-plant Industry." The report examines changes in the services in-plants provide, shifts in products they produce and best practices that leading in-plants follow. It covers both insourcing and outsourcing and looks at the biggest challenges in-plants are facing.
The world of printing is not an easy one. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, commercial printing output revenues are down 8% from 2016-2017 in North America — the steepest decline since the 2008-2009 economic recession. Paper and offset ink suppliers have announced multiple, consecutive price increases during the last 12 months as declining economies of scale work against their raw material purchases and mill closures reduce available supply.
When I met Ray at the CUPMAC conference in Ottawa I was impressed with his fleet management story and thought that other in-plant managers could benefit from hearing what the University of Regina did. http://CVSoci.al/f0OGXSXC
It's always interesting to see how in-plants stack up when you look at their sales per employee. A whole new crop of leaders emerges. I just updated this, so if you saw it already, take another look. Many have moved up a rank. http://CVSoci.al/WR8xDBHM

The in-plant at @UMassBoston tackles a range of projects, including outdoor signage, event signage, wall graphics and door graphics, allowing departments to stand out from the crowd and get their message across before students even cross the threshold. http://ow.ly/eUTF30iZaDhhttps://t.co/aAzZGc9rMn
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
