November 20, 2002 -- A new "Education Discounts" section on the industry’s education portal GRAPHIC COMM CENTRAL provides suppliers with an opportunity to market products directly to graphic communications programs at the nation’s schools.
Using the Education Discounts section, suppliers can promote special discounts available to educators only. These discounts must be 10 percent lower than any other discount offered. The section both provides an opportunity for suppliers to put their products in the hands of future graphic communications industry employees and assists the school programs to obtain the most current technology for their students. There is no charge for posting these special discounts to educators. Free offers to educators may also be posted.
