Collaboration is so important. FESPA is the Print Industry’s membership association who built and ran by it’s members. The association is vital to the industry and is all about member collaboration, events, roadshows, market research, and one of the most important aspect is they introduce vetted, industry suppliers to the membership. There’s a lot of industry knowledge within this place, that is better shared.

The Printing Charity
The print industry is a close-knit network. For people in it now, or those that have left the industry. The Printing Charity is there to support everyone that has, is or will be involved in print in some capacity. There’s no set way they support but the door is firmly open and for anyone that is associated with the print industry that might need support. Have a look on www.theprintingcharity.org.uk for more information.
Now for a long time the whole industry as a collective realised we need the next generation of print people. Until you’re in the world of print, you don’t realise how vast it is, how far it can take you in a career and almost certainly you have no idea of how rewarding it can be both emotionally, mentally and financially. Jonathan and the team at Learn2Print do a fantastic job in bringing new blood into the industry. If you need a link, have a peek on their website www.learn2print.com
