Khulna’s printing industry is struggling to turn a profit as the cost of paper and ink has nearly tripled over the past year.
The owners of the print shops claim that the increase in the cost of raw materials like paper, ink, and related supplies has caused a two-thirds reduction in work from the previous year.
There are 110 printing presses in the district that are members of the Printing Industries Association of Bangladesh, according to authorities in Khulna. About 7,000-8,000 people of Khulna are involved in the industry including the owners and employees.
