We Asked Wide-Format Printers: Do You Offer a 401K Match?

Do you or don’t you? Those who do expound on the provisions of their programs.





Do you offer a 401(k) match?

YES: 58%

  • 100 percent on up to one percent. — Jared Smith, bluemedia
  • Fifteen percent match from zero to whatever. — Bob Kissel, KDM POP Solutions Group
  • Up to three percent of salary. — Ann Durso, Express Sign & Graphics
  • We offer a 401(k) with a company match along with monthly financial planning for all employees. — Brian Adam, Olympus Group

NO: 42%

  • We offer salary sacrificing. It means they contribute to their super 401(k) prior to being taxed, so they get more bang for their buck. We don’t match super because its currently 10 percent on top of their salary and going up every year. Not viable for a small business. — Derek Michalanney, Signageworld
  • I’m not well informed. — Tommy Melendez, Master Graphics NYC
  • We are too small (and a family organization) to offer a 401(k). If we were able to, we would offer one and offer a matching program. — Jim Dittmer, JDA Creative Color
