You can run, but you can’t hide. There’s no escaping [cue dramatic music]: The Recession. Had enough of the media’s fear-inducing headlines? Like it or not, this is reality—and not just for the printing industry. But that doesn’t mean suppliers and distributors have to close their eyes and wait for miracles to fall in their laps.

Printegra, a provider of short-run business printing headquartered in Peachtree City, Ga., will consolidate its Peachtree City and Smyrna, Ga. plants during the weekend of Nov. 6 and 7. The fully integrated facility will begin operations on Mon., Nov. 8 from the Smyrna facility, located just outside of Atlanta. The expanded facility will contain a state-of-the-art graphics and pre-press department, offset capabilities for short- to medium-run business documents, checks, envelopes, pressure-seal mailers and integrated products, and a host of other capabilities. "We believe the new facility will significantly enhance our manufacturing capabilities and bring the collective products and services of Printegra to our distributors," said

Due to growing distributor needs, the label and design division at Printegra, Peachtree City, Ga., has moved from Kennesaw, Ga. to a larger company manufacturing facility in Smyrna, Ga. Printegra has also recently introduced ePrintline—an online print procurement system that was created to assist distributors in maximizing online sales opportunities through an affordable, customized Web site. In addition to providing marketing strategies, ePrintline allows distributors to offer business documents for vertical-market software applications; corporate identity products for affinity groups, trade associations and mid- to large-size companies; and third-party products from vendors of their choice.
