SAN FRANCISCO ( -- Kinko's, the privately held copying, document and business services firm, has narrowed its review to five agencies.

Those remaining are: Omnicom Group's GSDM, Austin, Texas WPP Group's J. Walter Thompson, Chicago; Richards Group, Dallas; and Interpublic Group of Cos.' Temerlin McClain, Dallas.

Incumbent Omnicom's TBWA/Chiat/Day, Playa del Rey, Calif., would have been a finalist, but has decided not to continue, according to Kinko's executives.

Executives for the Ventura, Calif.-based Kinko's also said the company typically spends about $30 million on advertising.

A decision is expected in December.

TBWA/Chiat/Day's most recent campaign featured Ryan Stiles of ABC's Whose Line is It Anyway? as Kenny, a Kinko's clerk. Spots were tagged "Kinko's -- We're doing more."
