There is still plenty of time to register for Color19!

We're entering the home stretch of Color19. The conference staff is busy with final touches and last minute details, but before we hit PRINT on those name badges we want to make sure that you have time to click that REGISTER NOW button below!

Still not sure if the Color Conference is right for you? Don't just take our word for it! Last year's attendees raved about their experiences! Color is the perfect venue to discuss the challenges of color management, get practical instruction, set the stage for future discoveries, and network with peers and experts alike.


"It was tough having to choose which session to attend in the breakouts, as there were so many sessions that piqued my interest!"

"A wealth of information was presented. Time to go back so I can help others in our company to pursue better color management efforts!"

"The sessions were very relevant to my job, and the networking opportunities with all of the experts at the conference were invaluable."

New Year, New Issues: Take Our Legislative Priorities Survey Today

It’s a new year of opportunity for the printing and graphic communications industry and the start of a new Congress in Washington, DC. The 116th Congress is set to open on January 3 and PIA is anxious to begin advocating on behalf of the industry. But first, we need your input to craft a grassroots-driven Federal advocacy agenda.

Knowing what issues are impactful to your company allows PIA to effectively direct government affairs resources to the most pressing challenges and opportunities facing your company and industry today. Please take a few moments to complete PIA’s biennial Federal Legislative Priorities Survey. The survey is open to all PIA member companies and the deadline for completion is January 18.

PIA is committed to ensuring the industry’s voice is heard in Washington, DC. While Capitol Hill may seem worlds away from where you sit today, the laws, regulations, and debates about to take place will most certainly have an impact on your company and industry. With your help, we can successfully advocate on your behalf.

Thank you in advance for your time and feedback!

Should you have questions regarding the Legislative Priorities Survey, please contact us at 800-910-4283 x 770 or membercentral@printing.org.
