Why We Still Print

Tuesday October 20, 2015

Today, social media and online sharing are like McDonald’s: billions and billions served. Homes and businesses across the globe haveembraced the digital revolution and “hard copies” of everything are seemingly edging closer to the precipice of obscurity.

What does all this electronic love look like in terms of users?

According to digital media watchdog DMR, the numbers shape up like this:  

  • Facebook: 1.49 billion users
  • LinkedIn: 380 million users
  • Google Drive: 240 million users
  • DropBox: 400 million users
  • SlideShare for presentations: 60 million users

It would seem, according these staggering totals, the days of printers and printed collateral are numbered, right?

Not at all.

The truth of the matter is very few companies have attempted to go paperless, and according to PrintZone, people worldwide are using 50 percent more paper now than we did 30 years ago!
