The Print Council Welcomes Two New Members
Founded in 1977 as a single-press operation, Westamerica Graphics today is a full-service firm offering printing, web-based fulfillment, warehousing and mailing. Its “Westamerica University” client education program has trained more than 1,200 industry professionals in “WAG U” seminars and workshops since 1994.
Pitts, who serves on a committee that reviews the Council’s marketing materials, launched Classic Graphics with co-owner Bill Gardner in 1983. The ISO 9001-certified company has a full range of high-quality printing and finishing capabilities and offers, through its Opus Direct division, mailing, fulfillment, kitting, and data management services.
Ben Cooper, Executive Director of The Print Council, saluted both companies for their commitment to a bright future for print. “Companies like Westamerica Graphics and Classic Graphics represent our industry at its best,” he said. “They are print’s most effective ambassadors, and The Print Council exists to help them do an even better job of communicating the value of print to the marketplace. We are grateful for their participation, and we look forward to working closely with them.”
