Get FSC Certified

Print17Who doesn't like a trade show special price? It's part of the reason members go to shows. Let your members know of a money saving offer at the upcoming PRINT 17 in Chicago, Sept. 10-14.

The Regional Affiliate Certificate Group (RACG), our endorsed provider for FSC certification, will be exhibiting at PRINT 17 and is offering a first year, $100 discount for those companies that join the group in the month of September. This makes the 'all inclusive' annual fee $1595.

This benefit is only available to YOUR AFFILIATE member companies in good standing. This price is the best in the business and the customer support is expert and responsive. Tell your members to stop by the RACG booth #4717 to take advantage of this offer.

Regional Affiliate Certificate Group is a program developed and offered by participating regional PIA Affiliates like PIASC. This means that RACG has an intimate knowledge of the print industry, what printers face each day, and what printers need to make their life easier. The goal of RACG is to make certification as simple, straightforward, and inexpensive as possible, while providing participants with a highly organized and efficient process.

A group certificate is different than a single certificate. Single certification requires independent development of systems; often without the expert support and comprehensive systems available to group participants. Couple that with the cost of single certification, which is generally, doubles that of RACG participants, and RACG is clearly a superior alternative.

Participation in RACG provides:

  • Lowest certification cost available

  • Continuous trademark support throughout the year

  • Fast response times on trademark approval requests

  • Assistance from trained audit staff and FSC specialists

  • Quick, easy, enrollment process

  • Access to training, webinars, and updates

Additionally, participants have access to the Rainforest Alliance Certifiedā„¢ Seal (RAC Seal, or 'the Frog' seal) for use, in conjunction with the FSCĀ® label, on customer pieces.
