Wallingford AlphaGraphics Reports Encouraging Trend Year-over-year sales increase reflects business's growing investment in marketing

November 7, 2010

Wallingford, CT (Grassroots Newswire) November 8, 2010 In some welcome economic news, AlphaGraphics, Inc. states that, despite reports to the contrary, the marketing community is alive and well in the U.S. The print and marketing communications provider reports experiencing robust growth in 2010, and achieving positive sales growth for seven consecutive months. Year-to-date (YTD) sales growth through September, 2010, for the individual centers stands at about four percent, with the prior six months' sales up almost eight percent over the same period last year.

"This trend is an exciting one for all of us," states Rich Fuhrman, owner of the local AlphaGraphics. "Almost thirty percent of our Network grew sales by more than 15 percent over the past six months compared to the same six months in 2009. That's a sign that we have the services and products that Wallingford business owners need to ramp up their marketing programs as recovery from the recent economic challenges continues."

AlphaGraphics of Wallingford is a full-service marketing and communication services provider that offers turnkey marketing solutions to businesses, including design, consultation, marketing strategy, variable marketing with Personalized URLs and more. The center also offers traditional printing services such as color, large format, offset and digital printing, as well as document management, finishing, binding and kitting.

"The numbers that AlphaGraphics is achieving indicate that the advertising and marketing communities are gaining strength," said Fuhrman. "Our customers are beginning to step up their marketing to protect their existing market share and to win market share from competitors who are slow to act."

AlphaGraphics attributes much of their recent growth in this difficult economy to their conversion from a printing company to a marketing services provider, and the introduction in 2005 of Digital Business Centers at many of their locations. These state-of-the-art centers have achieved impressive sales growth in 2010, with median YTD sales growth exceeding 30 percent.

"We believe that our recent sales growth signals an awareness on the part of companies big and small that they have an opportunity right now to use their marketing dollars to get a jump on their competitors," Fuhrman said. "In August, the company had its best single month of sales growth in over a decade, achieving growth of more than 13.5 percent. Wallingford businesses are ready to begin growing again, and we are ready to help them."

AlphaGraphics business centers offer a complete range of print, visual communications and marketing products and solutions, including full-service digital, offset and large format printing; design services; mailing and one-to-one marketing services; promotional products and digital archiving.
