Print In The Mix

Print in the Mix is a clearinghouse of research demonstrating the effectiveness of print and other formats (web, mobile, social media, etc.) in the cross-media communications value chain. Our mission is to advocate and educate for the value of print as a viable and effective ROI in the marketing strategy media mix.
Print in the Mix was created in 2007 with a grant from The Print Council and is housed at Rochester Institute of Technology and published by the School of Media Sciences. The Print Council ceased operations in fall 2012 and sponsorship of the clearinghouse was transferred to RIT’s newly founded Cross-Media Innovation Center (CMIC).

Two Sides

Two Sides U.S., Inc. is an independent, non-profit organization created to provide members of the Graphic Communications Supply Chain a forum to promote the responsible production and use of print and paper, improve sustainability standards and practices, share experiences and maximize customer confidence in our products.

Choose Print

Choose Print is an educational campaign designed to promote the effectiveness of print and to reinforce the fact that print on paper is a recyclable and renewable and thus a sustainable environmental choice. Choose Print is sponsored by Printing Industries Association, Inc. of Southern California (PIASC), the largest local graphic arts trade association in the nation, serving the interests of more than 1,100 member companies.

Print Grows Trees

Print Grows Trees” is an educational campaign that uses facts to show that print on paper actually helps to grow trees and keep our forests from being sold for development. By connecting the dots between print and the private landowners who own almost 60 percent of U.S. woodlands, “Print Grows Trees” challenges the widely held belief that by using less paper, trees will be saved. Print Grows Trees is sponsored by PGAMA, the not-for-profit trade association serving the graphic communications industry in Northern Virginia, Maryland, Greater Washington, D.C. and Southern Pennsylvania. They represent the interests of over 350 member firms.
