The European Federation for Print & Digital Communication
Intergraf works with the European Union to promote and protect the interests of the printing and related industries, and to enhance the sector's competitiveness through lobbying, informing, networking and social dialogue. Intergraf represents 21 national printing federations in 19 countries and, in turn, our national members represent a large portion of the printing industry in the EU-28. The industry as a whole totals some 118,000 firms which employ some 630,000 people.
The printing industry in Europe consists mainly of small enterprises, 90% of them employing fewer than 20 persons, and has an annual turnover of approximately €80 billion. The industry has changed over the past decade, particularly as a result of moving from analogue processes to digital workflows, in which content is received and processed electronically. From the creation of electronic documents to digital printing and web publishing, new technologies continue to have their influence.
To support this creative and dynamic industry, Intergraf has since 1930 provided a valuable platform to ensure that transnational dialogue is maintained horizontally between national printing associations, and vertically with the EU.
