There are two types of membership with Printing Industries:
- Full Members produce printing, packaging and graphic design in its broadest definition
- Associate Members are primarily suppliers to the printing industries.
Both types of membership enjoy access to similar benefits. Associate Members pay a fee-for-service contribution to access Workplace Relations and Legal Services which are included for Full Members, and have no voting rights.
