“Printing News” magazine announced Strategic Factory as No. 6 in the annual Top 100 Quick and Small Commercial Printers rankings for 2017. The year 2016 was, overall, a good year for quick and small commercial printers, as this year’s Top 100 companies indicate. Total sales figures were up more than 11% compared to 2015.
In addition to providing print work, nearly half of the Top 100 indicates they are now offering non-print marketing services to clients. These services range from social media and email marketing to graphics, design, website development, SEO services and more. Strategic Factory’s CEO Keith Miller was an early adapter and pioneer of diversification. Miller founded Strategic Factory as a one-stop shop for business and marketing collateral, including print, mail, graphic design, signage, website design, promotional products and customized branded apparel. Miller sees several services as future growth opportunities.
“Areas that have tremendous opportunities for growth are large-format and digital services,” Miller says. “Our signage agency has more than doubled in size since last year, through both organic growth and a strategic acquisition, and we are busier than ever. We acquired a digital marketing agency late last year and have been building and launching several new websites each week. Now, more than ever, we are truly a complete one-stop shop for our customers.”
