What PRIMIR Members Say...

Steve Mattingly, Senior Vice President
Southern Lithoplate

“The research, relationships, and awareness PRIMIR has afforded me and my company over the past 20 years, has definitely proven invaluable. Within this intensely competitive economy and industry we live within, PRIMIR helps ensure that our short- and long-range strategy is cost-effective and on target. It has been said that knowledge in itself is not powerful, but the wise use of that knowledge is so; and, PRIMIR serves as a core critical resource for our decision making.”

Ben Gore, National Account Manager
Sonoco Products Company

“PRIMIR membership to me has become a staple for information on trends and synergies, in our ever changing and dynamic printing industry. The studies available to members are timely, informative and well positioned to help drive good, sound business decisions. Additionally, interfacing with industry peers and like companies, simply becomes an added benefit to membership. The climate of change we face today is indicative of the many dynamics in the graphic arts industry. PRIMIR membership minimizes short term and long term risks and threats, via critical and timely market information!”

Jim Raffel, CEO
ColorMetrix Technologies, LLC

“PRIMIR provides me with outstanding studies in all areas of printing, but I think one of the best resources is the networking amongst so many professionals in all functional areas of printing. Having participated in PRIMIR I now have some great new friends that I can call upon with questions that are outside my knowledge base. The PRIMIR approach to market research studies is also unique; by participating on a study task force, you can help guide the content and questions of the study to ensure that your company gets the most out of the research consultants. Come see what you've been missing!”

At PRIMIR your voices is heard loud and clear.”
