The Big Associate Issue, now four years running, is a venue for AICC Associate members to communicate who they are, what they do, and how their products and services bolster the industry at large. The opportunity to submit a company article was opened to all AICC Associate members in good standing, and nearly 100 companies provided material.
Associate members have always been welcomed in AICC. The Association often relies on them to keep us informed on changes in the market and technology, as suppliers, as expert speakers and trainers, and as contributors to AICC publications, including BoxScore. Associate members also offer significant financial support that allows AICC to invest in benefits for all its constituents.
AICC’s goals with this annual edition of BoxScore are to help members see opportunities and gather information and materials that will guide the future of their businesses. We hope that the Big Associate Issue will serve as an effective tool for increasing your understanding of all the amazing products and services at your fingertips. It is a reference book of what is available to independent converters today, segmented into:
Dies, Rolls, Plates, and Accessories
Inks, Coatings, and Adhesives
Sheets, Paper, and Printing
Software and Electronics
To the converters reading this magazine and using it throughout the year, give your fellow members a first look. Support the companies that support your Association. When you speak with an Associate member, please let them know that you saw their article in BoxScore to allow us to continue to offer this member benefit.
When you invest in and engage with the AICC community, you strengthen the foundation for continued growth. To repeat AICC Chair Jay Carman in his message this issue: Buy AICC!
