Gravure Cylinder Society is an honorary Society founded in April 1981 by the Gravure Technical Association and Gravure Research Institute.

The Society was established to:

  • Permit the members of the Gravure Association of the Americas to honor those industry leaders who have made outstanding or extraordinary contributions to the Gravure Industry and the Gravure Association of the Americas and its predecessor organizations - Packaging and Label Gravure Association Global, Gravure Association of America, Gravure Technical Association and Gravure Research Institute.
  • Pay respect and appreciation to those whose vision, dedication and perseverance have been responsible for the growth of gravure from an accomplished and well-practiced craft to an International Industry of printing, publication, packaging, converting, specialty and gravure material and equipment firms.
  • Promote and perpetuate the good friendship and camaraderie that has developed among those whose devoted careers have make possible the continued growth, accomplishments and traditions of the Gravure Industry.
  • Support and promote through the individual and organized efforts of the members of the Society, the interest and well-being of the Gravure Association of America and the Gravure Industry.

Each year the Society nominates "...Industry leaders who have rendered outstanding or extraordinary contributions to the Gravure industry."

The Society meets at the GAA Annual Meeting and during the year members are involved in activities that promote and support gravure.

All GCS members are recognized by the distinctive pin they wear.
