The pros who made out the best were communications professionals, whose salaries rose an average of 12 percent. Designers saw a 9.6 percent pay raise, while editorial positions saw a 1.8 percent decline. (Newspaper reporters say “1.8? One-point-eight????” That’s nowhere near five, ten, 15 percent pay cuts….)

Still, don’t quit your day job: the same survey reports that the average organization assigns 2.78 people to custom publishing projects a year, down from 3.27 a year ago.
