Call it printing. Or call it graphic arts or graphic communications. Whatever you call it, you’re referring to one of the largest industries in the United States in terms of not only employees but also annual revenue.  And it's always looking to assist interested students in getting their start in the industry.

Graphic communications is a multifaceted industry, with a wide range of career opportunities. The graphic communications industry is made up of not only printers, but also publishers, packagers, papermakers, inkmakers, equipment manufacturers, and in-house design and printing departments within corporations, banks, and even department stores.

It is very hard to overlook an industry that employs over 1,000,000 people in over 39,000 establishments. Annual shipments are over $170 billion.
