Ad-Graphics (asi/31460), a supplier for more than 30 years, will close
permanently on December 30. The reason, explains Sales Manager Mike Gleneart,
was that Audubon Printers, Ad-Graphics’ parent, had decided that the company
didn’t fit with its existing corporate structure, which involves newspaper
inserts and other full-color single-sheet applications. The closure will affect
33% of the company’s workforce, with the rest remaining with the parent
were never a large supplier,” Gleneart
with all the costs necessary
a supplier company - association fees,
trade shows, advertising, mass mailings – we
just didn’t think we could legitimately
grow the business without laying out
a considerable amount of money.”
Ad-Graphics stopped taking new promotional product orders November 22, and will
fill and ship all in-house orders on or before December 30.

Facing Big Changes?
A new report on food
advertising to kids is
sending shockwaves through
the food industry and
even threatens to get
Congress involved if changes
aren’t made soon.
The Institute of Medicine
of the National Academies,
a federal advisory group,
says that there is a connection
between obesity and television
advertising. The report
was most critical of the
billions of dollars used
to push high-calorie and
low-nutritional food and
beverages over healthier
options. While the report
urges the industry to regulate
itself, it does list several
areas that should be cut
significantly within the
next two years: TV advertising,
product placement in movies
contracts with soft-drink
companies. Such broad
changes will likely
result in new advertising
campaigns and could
mean a bigger push
in alternative media
like promotional products.
