September 2005 Printing Shipments

The Commerce Department released printing shipments data, and things were not pretty. September's shipments were $7.7 billion, down -$387 million from September 2004, a decline of -4.8%. For the year we are down -$1.8 billion, or -2.7%. Most disturbing is that the average decline from January to May was -0.7%, but from June to September has been -5.0% in the monthly comparisons to 2004. On an inflation-adjusted basis, September was down -8.4%, and we are down -6.4% for the year.
