Respondents also described percentage of company sales in 2006 in terms of imaging technologies: 34% said screen printing accounted for 76-100% of sales; 40% said digital printing accounted for 1-25% of sales; 85% said pad printing accounted for 1-25% of sales; 60% said embroidery accounted for 1-25% of sales; and 60% said other types of printed products accounted for 1-25% of sales.
