The Gravure Education Foundation

Mission Statement:

The mission of the Gravure Education Foundation (GEF) is to promote and support educational development in gravure technology by raising and properly distributing money and resources to deserving educational institutions and students. By so doing, the Foundation will motivate and develop individuals with technical proficiency and leadership skills for the print communication industry.

Gravure Education Foundation:

In 1979, the founding trustees of the GEF recognized that ensuing technological change would continue to accelerate. New technology became a catalyst for changes in customer needs and demands and in competition in the print communications marketplace.

Gravure Education FoundationThose founding trustees agreed that the industry's next generation would require specialized training and education in order to manage and produce in the new business environment. Their foresight gave rise to the Gravure Education Foundation.

The GEF is dedicated to promoting and supporting training and educational development in gravure technology. In order to meet and exceed the demands of an ever-changing marketplace, we encourage and support programs that offer extensive instruction in gravure technology.

The Foundation has made steady progress since its inception in 1979, and we are proud of the support we provide for educational development in gravure technology. As we near the end of our fourth decade, the Foundation is strengthening its support by implementing new training and educational initiatives, and expanding its support of existing programs.
