The New GCG Scholarship Program Information

What we do, and why we are unique

The Guild is an organization where you can meet your fellow printing professionals monthly at our educational and informative meetings and tours. It is a gathering at which valuable business ideas are exchanged between other business people in our industry.

The Guild is unique because

One of its main functions is to raise scholarship money which is donated yearly to deserving graphic arts high school and college students. This is accomplished through web sponsors, corporate donations, and our popular golf outing held each year.
