Alexandria, VA (September 25, 2002) – The Graphic Arts Technical Foundation (GATF) and the Printing Industries of America, Inc. (PIA) proudly announce GAIN 2.0, now available at www.gain.net. GAIN 2.0 is the next generation Web portal providing valuable printing and graphic arts information via the Internet.
New features include a more robust, inclusive search engine. When users enter an industry term or keyword (i.e., color management), the entire site will be searched and results are sorted by area: content, publications, and meetings. The redesigned GAIN Bookstore features book covers and expanded content information. Industry professionals can keep their professional growth on track with the new GAIN Learning Center. The Learning Center includes access to online courses, industry job descriptions, and school information. Find out about workshops and meetings in the redesigned Training and Meetings section. And check back for Message Boards to share information and ideas with other industry professionals.
