A Game Changing Unification

For more than two years, Printing Industries of America (PIA) has been in merger discussions with the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) to establish a new, powerful industry-wide entity representing the depth and breadth of the graphic communications industry and its many communities, including commercial printing, industrial printing, graphics, garments, textiles, electronics, and packaging. SGIA owns both the successful Printing United trade show and NAPCO Media, the most influential media presence in the industry.
 
By joining assets and expertise, the new merged association will be able to leverage its strength to advance the future of graphic communications and provide its combined members with essential information and tools to help their businesses grow and prosper. The merged association will operate under a new brand that will be chosen based on thoughtful market research. It will continue to be the industry’s voice on Capitol Hill and the leading source for education, research, benchmarking data, and human resources. We are very excited about the new member benefits that will come about from this game-changing industry association.
 
On November 17, 2019, the Board of Directors of PIA officially passed a resolution to merge with SGIA and have recommended that the members of PIA approve the merger. This merger, if approved, is expected to become effective May 1, 2020.
