Print employers in Scotland have been organised as a Federation since 1910 and its centenary in 2010 was marked by the publishing of a book of its history.
Throughout the last 100 years the Federation has had several names and the current one reflects the changing nature of print communications, driven by technological developments such as internet web and digital printing.
Members are offered services such as labour and employment law advice, the management of the Scottish Training Scheme for modern apprenticeships, health and safety audits, maintaining and developing skills within the industry that reflect technological change, and advice on environmental and quality accreditation.
Services also include small business advice covering such topics as cash management, market segmentation and key account management and cost rate assessment. Print Scotland represents its members interests in collaboration with Unite the Union.
