PAF represents the printing and graphic arts industry in our state’s capital, speaking on behalf of member companies.

Our Government Affairs Committee has coordinated to provide a strong presence in Tallahassee, ensuring that PAF’s voice is heard on all matters affecting the industry.

GraphicsPAC, is Florida’s only political action committee dedicated to the graphic arts industry. It supports those candidates who understand your business, embrace the free-enterprise system, and back a pro-business agenda.

Over the years, GraphicsPAC’s activities have been successful. Its choices about which candidates’ campaigns to support have been consistently thoughtful. As a result, GraphicsPAC has had a continuously excellent track record of supporting candidates who meet its criteria, and the vast majority (with only a very few exceptions) have won their elections.

Please consider contributing to GraphicsPAC if you haven’t already done so. It is vital to the success of the graphic arts industry in Florida.

Your support by sending in your membership dues will go a long way.
