Is the outsourcing of print production/purchasing a trend with corporations?

Answered by Suzanne Morgan, Founder, Print Buyers

We hear about many corporations that are outsourcing their print production/purchasing departments for cost savings. Do you know of many companies going through this outsourcing process? Is it a trend?

Actually, no, I’m not seeing the outsourcing of print production/purchasing to be a trend at all. In fact, I don't know of any specific company that has done this recently. (However, I am aware of a few print management companies, just not their clients.)

Having said that, I've had several speaking engagements in London in the past few years, and this type of outsourcing seems to be a huge trend in both the U.K. and Europe.
