National Government Affairs

Printing Industries of America advocates a member-driven public policy agenda before Congress, the White House, and Federal agencies that benefits and protects America’s printing and graphic communications industry. Printing Industries of America also seeks to raise the industry’s political visibility on Capitol Hill through grassroots advocacy, Printing Industries of America’s annual Legislative Conference, Print’s Voice, and PrintPAC, the only political action committee dedicated solely to representing the political interests of the printing and graphic communications industry.

Printing Industries of America keeps its membership abreast of key legislative and political developments affecting the industry through the imPRINT Newsletter, published while Congress is in Session, and Special Edition imPRINT Newsletters published in the instances of victory announcements and/or action alerts.

The Value of Print

In response to the recent increase in reporting that electronic media is more environmentally friendly than print, Printing Industries of America is fighting back, rebutting these statements, and expanding its efforts to actively promote The Value of Print.

Now more than ever, it is vital to communicate that printed products are both environmentally and socially responsible. To advance the core message that printing is vital and a sustainable form of communication, Printing Industries of America has developed and provided information and resources to help increase awareness about print. All of these resources can be found on The Value of Print website.

 However, the exact opposite is true. Find out more on the Choose Print website.
