Sign & Print Career Connections Debuts This Week


The Sign & Print Career Connections program, an industry-wide initiative to attract new talent to the print, sign and wider graphics sector, will make its debut this week at the Victorian Careers & Employment Expo in Melbourne.

Students will be able to discuss industry careers with advisors, and try their hand at trade activities.


The initiative is led by supplier association Visual Connections in partnership with the Australian Sign & Graphics Association (ASGA), FESPA Australia, the Flexible Packaging & Label Manufacturers’ Association (FPLMA), the LIA and the Visual Media Association (VMA), in a genuine ‘whole of industry’ approach.

It will take information about opportunities across the entire spectrum of the sector to thousands of Years 9 – 12 students around the country over the coming months, with a brand new stand, brochure and online resource designed to engage, inform and resource them to pursue an industry career.

The program kicks off at the Victorian Careers & Employment Expo on Thursday. The team, including careers advisors from AusSIP, Visual Connections representatives, TAFE teachers and apprentices from Victoria University Polytechnic, and industry volunteers, can be found at Site 86 at the Melbourne Showgrounds.

The Sign & Print Career Connections program is made possible with the generous support of industry sponsors, including major sponsors Amari Visual Solutions, Ball & Doggett, Cactus Imaging, Fujifilm Graphic Systems, Graphic Art Mart, Mulford Australia, ORAFOL, Pozitive Sign & Graphics Supplies and Sign-a-Rama, and partnering sponsors Böttcher, FPLMA, Hero Print,  MacDermid Graphic Solutions and Spicers.
