We exist to promote and advance best value and practice within the education print and creative environment. We are a group of Print and Creative Managers working in the UK Higher Education community. We recognise that the area of print, with the associated technologies and practices, is a highly specialist and continuously fast developing area. Our aim is to support our members’ institutions to manage these technological developments, to gain better understanding and maximise the return on their investments. Our members are from a wide variety of print units, from large and small, including litho and digital units, some commercially funded and others core funded. This broad base of expertise, with common challenges of the education sector, ensures that our members are best placed to help and support each other. This is one of our strengths and brings real benefits to our members.
Formerly the University Print Managers's Group (UPMG). In 2011 we re-branded ourselves as the Association of Creative & Print Managers in Education and are open to all print and design managers who are engaged in education or research environments.
