PIPI Survey

Fifteen regional printing associations have introduced a quarterly survey called the Printing Industry Performance & Insights (PIPI) study analyzing the performance and outlook of the print and graphic communications industry. The objective of the quarterly study is to provide leaders like yourself actionable advice on how to more effectively manage your operation.

The study is conducted through the Jones College of Business at Middle Tennessee State University. If you have any questions, please reach out to Dr. Ralph Williams Jr. at Ralph.Williams@mtsu.edu.
