2023 Print Week Events


What a great kick off to our Print Week celebrations! Thank you to everyone who joined us on March 2 at our Southern Region Print Week Reception. It was great to see everyone and celebrate all of our winners including this year’s Printer of the Year, Kevin Murray, and the Maxwell Award Winner, Graphic Village.


What a great second week of celebrating print in the Central region on March 9! Thank you to everyone who attended and sponsored this event. We were thrilled to have such a large turnout of students, along with their teachers and parents. It is always great to see the industry growing and thriving with everyone supporting the next generation of print. Congratulations to Chuck Gherman on his well-deserved honor of receiving the Franklinton Award.


Another incredible evening of celebrating PRINT! Thank you to everyone who joined us in downtown Cleveland last night to celebrate the best of the Northern Region and, as always, to all of our sponsors who have helped make this event a success. Congratulations once again to Travis Mlakar, who joined a long list of esteemed members in the Hall of Distinction. We were so glad to see students last night accept their awards and make meaningful connections with future employers.


Our Michigan event was a great conclusion to an awesome month of Print Excellence Awards receptions! Thank you to all of our members, sponsors and students who came out to celebrate PRINT with us. We hope that everyone enjoyed seeing industry friends while celebrating the Michigan PEA winners, and that you also enjoyed learning about what Platinum Sponsor Landa can do for your business.

Networking, education, insurance and buying programs are all common reasons for joining an industry’s association, but like any business decision, becoming a member of Graphic Media Alliance should be evaluated based on each company’s assessment of its potential Return On Investment (ROI) for its dues dollar. Of course, every membership needs to take into consideration intangible benefits including networking opportunities, fellowship with other graphic communications firms and having a trusted confidant at the Association’s office to discuss business issues.
