Our History

How It All Began

In 1906, a small group of St. Louis printers banded together to combat the difficult problem of growing costs. Little did they realize that their turn-of-the-century efforts at increasing profitability would result in a vibrant organization providing an array of exceptional cost-saving, educational and support programs.

What We Have Evolved to

As needs have changed over the years, so have PMA’s programs. An apprenticeship program was established in 1913, followed by group insurance in the early 1960s. As time has progressed, we have added a Waste Paper/Recycling Program, the Printers’ 401K Program, Insurance and Employee Benefits products and services, a discounted logistics program, group purchasing power program and much more. However, one thing has never changed . . . our unwavering dedication to ethical business practices and excellence in printing, graphic communications and related services, all designed to advance members’ opportunities for growth and profitability.
