SGIA Membership: A Look to the Future
If you’re here at PRINTING United, you already know that this star-studded showcase is the foremost event in the printing industry. You’re amidst cutting-edge technology, including product debuts; unparalleled education from the industry’s most influential thought leaders; and, the best part, the chance to see your closest peers with endless networking opportunities.
What you may not know is that all of this excitement is a result of the collaboration of two forward-looking companies that have accepted the challenge to answer an industry need. The Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) (Booth 10130) partnered with, and recently acquired, NAPCO Media to provide the industry with the best resources, research, and education across all industry segments — from commercial printing, to packaging, to functional printing, to digital textiles, and everything in between.
