PRINTING INDUSTRY IN ESTONIA
The Estonian printing sector is a modernized industry as large investments have been made into it during the last decade. The sector’s capabilities meet the needs of the domestic market, and that is why exports make up about 40% of net turnover.
There are about 300 printing houses in Estonia, which are divided into four categories according to field of activity: periodical printing houses, book printing houses, labeling and packaging printing houses and advertising printing houses.
The joining of the European Union in May 2004 has encouraged and simplified foreign trade and communication. The export of Estonian printing industry has increased and this trend is still continuing. Today, the largest markets are Norway, Sweden and Finland.
