In conjunction with the IRgA, Reprographics 101 is pleased to announce the launch of our “Winter 2012-13 REPROGRAPHER SURVEY”

Reprographers, PLEASE PARTICIPATE!!! 

The greater the number of survey participants, the more relevant the survey data will be.  We not only encourage YOU to participate, we encourage you to encourage your friendly competitors and industry associates at other companies to participate in the survey.

No one will know which companies participated in the survey – not even me!  There is absolutely no way for anyone to know which companies participated in the survey.  Our industry is at a critical point in its life; recent and comparative results and trend information is, or I guess I should say, should be, vitally important to everyone in the industry.

Rules for this survey:

-----We ask that only one person from each company respond to the survey!  We also ask that the one person who participates from each company be involved in a management position, since many of the questions pertain to sales data and profit data.

-----This particular survey is designed for “reprographers only”.  If you are a vendor to the reprographics industry, please do not participate in the survey.

-----This survey is open to ALL reprographers.  You do not have to be an IRgA Member to participate in this survey.  (Although, we do encourage you to sign up for membership – and IRgA membership is free, so no reason not to sign up! Visit to sign up.)

-----We intend to continue the survey process until the middle of January.  We may end up extending that, but, for now, that’s the target date.

-----We expect to be able to publish the results of the survey by the end of January.

Thank you, in advance, for taking the time to participate in our Winter 2012-13 Reprographer Survey.
