NAPL will assume administrative management.
PrintImage International, the association devoted to the quick and small commercial printing industry, has announced plans to form an affiliation with the National Association for Printing Leadership (NAPL), the non-profit trade association serving the graphic communications industry. Under the terms of the agreement, NAPL will assume the administrative management of PrintImage, which remains an independent organization and remains headquartered in Des Plaines, IL. The two associations will cooperate on a number of programs and services.
In a press release, the groups state that, "The NAPL/PrintImage affiliation is a response to synergistic opportunities that are in the direct interest of the memberships of both associations. Through its alliance with PrintImage, NAPL is able to more effectively leverage its considerable resources in the quick printer sector. In addition to strengthening PrintImage's ability to service the quick and small commercial printer sectors, its affiliation with NAPL gives its members access to a broad range of NAPL resources designed to help members address the strategic management issues that face all businesses.
