Value Chain

The printing industry in Europe necessarily relies on other sectors in order to function. The print value chain is made up of the providers of raw materials (e.g. paper and ink), machinery suppliers, content providers (e.g. publishers, graphic designers and other businesses) and various other service providers. Intergraf works closely with the trade associations representing these industries in order to ensure our work takes into account the specificities of and developments in the full print value chain.
