As a small business owner, you understand how hard it can be to get your voice heard. Businesses that have been around for longer, or simply employ more people, tend to have more of a voice in the marketplace.
Luckily for small business owners of the printing industry, the British Association for Print and Communication (BAPC) has made it possible to have your voice heard.
In 1978 the BAPC formed to gain acceptance of the on-demand part of the printing industry. It now spans both the printing and creative industries and speaks on behalf of everyone in the business.
For only £1 a week, the BAPC offers an impressive list of services, from marketing support to legal advice.

Being a member of the BAPC
For suppliers, becoming a member of the BAPC can greatly boost your business. They can put you in touch with other leaders in the field so you can learn from each other. It will help keep you up to date with what’s happening in the industry so you can adjust your product flow and prices accordingly.
You can participate in surveys and attend training to take your business to the next level. They are basically there to help you and your business in every way possible.
Most suppliers in the printing industry are small businesses without the funds or people to make a large impact. Becoming a member of the BAPC will give you the opportunity to join together with other business owners.
Members of the BAPC have stated it is the best investment they have ever made for their business. A business owner needs all the support and help he or she can get, and the BAPC makes this possible for businesses of all sizes.
