Find a Printer/Supplier
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.

GLGA’s popular Postpress Reference Matrix features only GLGA members whose primary business function is postpress. 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.
The Postpress Reference Matrix is a downloadable Excel file. The spreadsheet format makes it easier to sort and filter the almost 100 capabilities listed in the matrix to find needed services.
