Ever since its inception in 1959 P.A.P.G.A.I has played a leading role for the betterment of the printing and graphic arts industry. It was P.A.P.G.A.I that prevailed upon the government against the move of banning import of second hand machinery. It was scientifically proved to the government that second hand machinery could provide good quality printing due to the weather conditions in our country. This helped the country's youth in emerging as entrepreneurs as they were able to afford setting up small scale printing set ups.

PAPGAI's most significant contribution to the printing and graphic arts industry was to have realized the need for the professional training and education in printing and graphic arts. Its untiring efforts and interaction with the government led to the establishment of Government Poly Technic Institute of Printing and Graphic Arts in 1973.

The institute is the only recognized educational center that offers a three year diploma covering all aspects of printing and graphic arts. It is equipped with laboratories, hands-on workshops, a library and a hostel for students.PAPGAI serves as a forum for interaction for all members of printing and graphic arts industry.
