Employing more than 800,000 persons in the United States today, printing is steadily increasing its horizons. In 1960 there were more than 33,000 printing establishments which paid over $4,328,000,000 in wages, and turned out products valued at more than $5,000,000,000. The outlook for the future is increasing activity in all phases of printing and a resultant increased need for qualified personnel. Printing of some description is carried on in every sizable community in the United States. The country newspaper and the commercial print shop usually occupy a position of importance in the economic and cultural growth of the community. In urban centers, the products of printing are an absolute necessity for the functioning of any business – from the letterheads, billboards, labels, and other clerical necessities to the tons of printed messages which comprise the selling efforts of both large and small businesses of every description.
