The Graphic Arts Information Network (GAIN), which is operated by the Printing Industries of America (PIA), Inc., and Graphic Arts Technical Foundation (GATF), recently completed its first year of service. GAIN serves as the portal to the graphic arts industry via the Internet at www.gain.net.
Since its inception, GAIN has become a vital industry link for both PIA/GATF members, as well as those seeking more information about the graphic arts industry. The site has approximately 10,000 registered users and has average monthly user sessions of more than 45,000.
“PIA and GATF are foremost graphic arts industry resources and by offering the wealth of knowledge, expertise and information in a timely manner through the Internet we are incorporating the tools of the new media into a time-honored profession,” said Ray Roper, PIA president and chief executive officer.
