Free Hourly Rates Report

Melbourne, FL 3-17-20A few hours ago, Florida’s governor announced all bars and nightclubs will be closed for the next 30 days, and restaurants will be restricted to 50% seating capacity. More restrictions to follow.

That’s almost incomprehensible. Nothing in my 46 years as a business owner and consultant has prepared me for what we are hearing today. Like you, I am certain there will be more shocking announcements to come.

As business slows, as it surely will, you need to focus like a laser beam on the basics that got you where you are today… marketing, fine-tuning your pricing, improving your firm’s productivity (as measured by SPE) and trimming the fat in every corner of your operation. This is not the time to coddle lazy or unproductive employees. This is not the time to be apologizing for your prices. This is not the time for excuses. This is the time to be more proactive in your business than ever before. Your employees, at least the good ones, will follow and support you, but YOU must point the way. As an aside, we are fully confident that the dozens of studies and specialized reports published by NPRC can help you focus on what you need to do and how to do it. No other printing association can make that claim.

As a small token of our appreciation to hundreds and hundreds of printers, mailers and sign company owners who have supported our industry research for more than 30 years, we have decided to offer one of our smaller, yet popular industry reports absolutely FREE. Does it have all the answers, of course not, but it is a good example of the type of research that we conduct every year on behalf of this industry.

A limited time offer – For a brief period of time, you can download a complimentary copy of this report. This study normally sells for $49.95, but for a limited time you can download the study absolutely FREE!

The 2017 Hourly Rates & Mark-up Practices Report, like all of our studies, is packed with useful information, data and pricing designed to help you focus on what you need to do in the next 30 days and beyond. The study reveals pricing data on hand labor charges, hourly graphic charges, mark-up rates for paper and  brokered services, and hourly rates for various operations such as cutting, folding and padding.
