PGAMA Educational Campaign
Designed to help preserve America’s forests, “Print Grows Trees” was an innovative marketing and education campaign in DC and NYC that reinvigorated industry pride and educated consumers about the environmental benefits of print on paper. Developed for the Education Fund of the Printing and Graphic Arts Association Mid-Atlantic (PGAMA), the Washington, DC-based printing and graphic arts association, “Print Grows Trees” included out-of-home advertising, social media, printed posters, and a dedicated website. The campaign reached over 116 countries and averaged 10,000 page views per month. As a result, PGAMA achieved a 10% gain in memberships.
