Cygnus to stop publishing four regional graphics magazines

Published on .

Melville, N.Y.--Cygnus Publishing, a unit of Cygnus Business Media, announced it will cease publishing Southern Graphics, Printing Journal, Print & Graphics and Printing Views. The September issues will be the last for these regional publications--at least for a while, the company said. Together the four magazines make up Cygnus’ Graphics Network. Cygnus said it will continue to publish Ink Maker, Quick Printing, Printing News and Wide-Format Imaging. "The printing and graphics industry took a hit after 9/11 that particularly affected the regional markets, with some experiencing more than three solid years of decline," Jann Levesque, group publisher of the Graphics Network, said in a statement. "Industries change, realign and grow. Suspending our regional print publications is perhaps only temporary as we continue to watch how the market evolves." A Cygnus spokeswoman said sales and editorial employees at the four publications would be transferred to other printing publications within Cygnus.
