Do You Keep Your Eye Out for the Union Bug?
At Image Cube, we are union strong and proud members of the Communications Workers of America where everything we produce is made by union labor in the USA. When our clients utilize our services they know that they are receiving personal craftsmanship when partnering with us for their printing needs. Our printing shop features our union seal (“bug”) denoting it was sourced from a company that values its workers and the strength they add to our nation. When your product has the “bug” it assures us that we are helping to provide a better quality of life for American workers and their families. So, do you have the “bug”?
The reason why we call it the “bug” is because the term originates from the fact that a tiny logo is printed on a product and looks like a little insect or “bug.” This ensures that printed materials are completely union made and is backed by the quality and craftsmanship of a union company like Image Cube. Printing became prevalent in the 19th century but since then unions have declined significantly in the printing industry, and only around 5-10% of current workers in printing and publishing are unionized. Check out our five reasons why you should partner with, and rely on, a union print company.

There have been many changes to the printing industry in just the last decade. Union printers have had the durability and insight to keep up with the changes by embracing new technologies and the capability and know how to move from print to digital.
