EMA is dedicated to the business activities of manufacturers and envelope printers, forms companies, packaging companies, market intermediaries and the suppliers that support these companies.  Our association exists to promote the value of paper-based communications and, in particular, envelopes and printed products.

EMA strives to ensure there remains a level playing field between electronic and paper-based communications and works closely with state, national and global legislative and regulatory authorities to ensure business remains successful.  Our goal is to protect the industry and maintain its abilities to compete in an open marketplace.

EMA carries out its mission through three key initiatives:

  1. We focus on legislative and regulatory opportunities to level the playing field and to promote growth.
  2. We undertake research on market trends using primary and secondary data that members cannot acquire anywhere else.
  3. We specialize in content - through discussions with leading policymakers and through educational presentations - in order to keep members abreast of important trends and manufacturing technologies.
