We are the Printing & Imaging Association of Georgia (PIAG).
The Printing & Imaging Association of Georgia (PIAG) has served Georgia’s dynamic graphic communications industry for over 125 years. As the voice of the industry, PIAG supports graphic communicators of all kinds from printers to imagers to designers and beyond. PIAG's three arms (association, insurance, and educational foundation) are all here to help you succeed today, and help guide you towards the future.
PIAG's membership reaches all arms of the industry. Businesses represented in the association range from large-scale commercial printers to mom & pop local print shops. The highly engaged membership consists of printing & imaging owners, CEOs, managers, professionals, designers, marketers, and in-plant personnel, all working together hand-in-hand in helping each other achieve business success.
Founded in 1894, the Printing & Imaging Association of Georgia has been the steadfast supporter of the graphic arts industry within the state of Georgia. Through several name changes and redirections, we remain committed to our members and serving the industry.
The PIAG Educational Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that exists to promote print as a smart solution by educating marketers and media buyers of the value of print in the media mix as well as supporting students who will become the future of our industry.
Through PIAG Insurance, a wholly-owned subsidiary of PIAG, we assist employers in obtaining cost-effective group health, property, casualty, and workers’ compensation insurance.
