Scottish Print Archival Trust

The Scottish Printing Archival Trust (SPRAT) was formed in 1988 to con­serve ‘know­ledge and examples of Scotland’s print­ing her­it­age for the bene­fit of the public and print/media education’. The Trust pro­motes interest in the his­tory of the Scottish print­ing industry, which is one of Scotland’s oldest. It does not hold any archival col­lec­tions itself, but works with vari­ous insti­tu­tions to ensure that print­ing archives are not lost.


In addition to the European Commission lobbying on legislation through Intergraf in Brussels, Graphic Enterprise Scotland are active members of CBI Scotland’s Trade Association Committee which is the UK's premier business lobbying organisation, providing a voice for employers at a national and international level.


We understand that with today's challenging economic and political landscape, membership of a professional organisation can be the one constant you can rely on for support.
Graphic Enterprise Scotland work tirelessly to support our members, promote our industry, delivering our future today.
