Host a Print Buyer Certification Roadshow

Let us help you drive customers and prospects to your plant! As you may know, Print Buyers and PCPI ( - our association) have created a top quality certification program available for production professionals entitled Professional Print Production Certification (the core certification for print buyers). This certification is highly regarded and gives print buyers a way to document their knowledge and add value in their organizations.

We’re excited to announce that we’re taking these programs on the road and will be conducting certification events in several cities with our Print Buyer Certification Roadshow. We would like to partner with you on this program to bring this exciting certification to your customers. Here are some of the ways that hosting our certification at your facilities can benefit you:


  • We will provide a top-rated speaker and full-day training program at no charge to you*
  • This program will support the relationship between you and your clients, resulting in well-educated clients
  • Certification offers high value to your prospects and customers. Our programs are the only professional certifications available to print buyers.
  • Your prospects and customers will pay for the certification and we’ll extend to them the discounted PCPI member rate (a savings of $225). They will save money on the certification when they come to your facilities.
  • Paid participants will receive our printed study guide, learning resource materials and a pass/fail certification test
  • If you would like any of your sales or customer service reps to become certified, we’ll offer you the same discounted rate
  • If there are more than 25 paid participants, we will also give you 3 certifications at no cost that you can use to either give to your prospects/customers or use for your own staff
  • If you’d like, we can also offer an end-of-day “Print Buyer Think Tank” to drive even more prospects and customers to your event

* for 25 or more paid participants (sliding scale fees may apply to fewer than 25 participants)

Be a Certification Host:

  • You’ll provide the facility or meeting space to host this full-day program and any nominal expenses such as lunch
  • You’ll actively market the event with us to your clients and prospects and will be responsible in helping fill the seats (you maintain control of your client lists - you would send mailings, emails and other promotions directly)
  • Your prospects and clients will pay for their own certifications at the discounted rate
  • Highly Recommended: Maximize the effectiveness and appeal of your event by offering an “Open House” or plant tour to showcase your capabilities in combination with hosting this certification!

We’re proud of our programs and believe that your partnership with us will provide you with a unique opportunity to provide added value to your clients.
