From our family to yours...
We would like to extend the warmest holiday wishes to everyone who has made this year successful for us here at PIA. Our offices will be closed Monday, December 25; Tuesday, December 26; and Monday, January 1 in observance of the Christmas and New Year's Day holidays. Have a safe and happy New Year and we look forward to making 2018 even brighter for the printing industry!

A Special Message from Michael Makin

Dear PIA Members & Friends:

I took a few minutes to record a special message for you about the huge tax reform bill that was just passed by the House and Senate! This has significant impact on the printing industry and we're thrilled to see it come through just in time to celebrate for the holidays.

Highlights include:
  • Preservation of the 100-year-old advertising deduction
  • Corporate tax rates are slashed from 35% to 21% beginning January 1, 2018
  • A deduction of 20% of qualified pass-through income
  • Alternative minimum tax (AMT) will only apply to those individuals making $500,000 a year or $1 million for couples
  • Ability to immediately write off the purchase of any new or used equipment
  • Businesses with floor plan inventory can write off loan interest (LIFO)
The bill is expected to greatly accelerate economic growth in our industry by 2.5-3% in 2018. What a happy holiday indeed!

Look for details on how this specific tax reform package will impact you and your company in a special webinar PIA will be holding on Thursday, February 15, 2018.

Here's to a very prosperous 2018!

OSHA Compliance for Printers Workshop

Join the Printing Industries of America’s Environmental, Health, and Safety team for an OSHA Compliance Workshop. PIA and SGIA are partnering to offer a comprehensive, 2-day event held April 25-26 at PIA’s headquarters in Warrendale, PA. As OSHA penalties increase, it’s more important than ever to make sure your facility is compliant.

If you have any questions about OSHA compliance, this is the workshop for you. The experts of the EHS department at PIA will provide insight into lockout/tagout, hazard communication, and other common OSHA violations in addition to other topics mentioned on our website.

Don’t just take it from us! Participants from our first OSHA Compliance for Printers Workshop were all pleased with their experience.

“The workshop exceeded my expectations,” said Connie Diaz. “It was tailored around our industry and the professionals teaching it knew exactly what the challenges are in our facility.”

Make sure your business is OSHA compliant by attending our OSHA Compliance Workshop April 25-26. Members pay just $397 for this incredible course.
