Association members stand for something – something larger than themselves. This includes industry standards, commonly accepted practices and quality. Although members join for all different reasons, one common thread runs through all GLGA members. They want to improve their company and the industry they operate. The Great Lakes Graphics Association encourages you to do business with its members, as they stand for something – an industry with a rich history and a future that is bright.

Postpress Services Directory
As a printer, you have two choices when it comes to “value-added” services for your non-core print-related business. You can invest in finishing and binding equipment and staff, or you can outsource the jobs.
There are numerous benefits to working with a trade postpress partner to complete your work. Trade postpress partners have an uncompromising expertise in the services they provide, with a skilled staff whose only focus is on the finishing and binding capabilities they offer. Choosing to work with a trade binder or finisher allows you to spend your time and resources in the printing area where you excel.
Click here for a helpful directory to the finest trade binders and finishers in the Midwest, all of whom are members of GLGA. The services provided by GLGA members are unparalleled in their industry. GLGA members are committed to producing a quality product, on time, with competitive pricing. They will provide you with the quality you need to help you stand out as a versatile supplier to your customers.
