About Us

 

Printing Industries Alliance is the trade association serving the graphic communications industry in New York State, Northern New Jersey and Northwestern Pennsylvania.

We maintain a Headquarters office in Amherst, New York, and satellite offices in Brooklyn, New York and Long Island.

Printing Industries Alliance offers a broad range of services, benefits, and support to the industry.  In conjunction with our national affiliate, Printing Industries of America, member companies can establish a presence far beyond what is achievable on an individual basis.

When your firm becomes a member of Printing Industries Alliance, every member of your staff becomes eligible to utilize services.

Value Proposition

Throughout its history, Printing Industries Alliance has provided programs and services in support of its membership and the broader graphic communications industry.  Member  benefits are reviewed regularly by Association membership, leaders, and staff in an effort to ensure that the organization remains relevant and our members receive a positive return on their investment.  This process begins with a regular “Member Needs Survey” which is combined with industry information and developed into an organizational plan which becomes the pathway to move forward.

This process has contributed significantly to the tremendous value proposition that is available to Printing Industries Alliance membership.

This value proposition is expressed in the Vision and Mission Statements adopted by the Organization:
