SUPPLIERS CAN BREATHE easier for another year. According to packagePRINTING's Annual Equipment Purchasing Survey, the majority of package printers have budgeted healthily for equipment upgrades, and don't intend to simply let this money languish in their pockets. One in four plan to increase spending on equipment by more than 25 percent than in 1999, and nearly one in five plan to spend up to 50 percent more. Twenty-two percent expect their budgets to mirror last year's totals.
