Keep Your Cash Flowing

Timely debt collection is crucial for every graphic arts business. If you’re having trouble maintaining current accounts receivable, we have the resources to help.

PINE has partnered with the Printing Industry Credit Bureau (PICB) to provide expanded credit and collection services for members. PICB was founded 35 years ago as a member benefit for Printers of Illinois & Indiana and, under the leadership of Andrea Schlack, the agency has gained national recognition for excellence and quality of services in the credit and collection industry.

In 2015 PICB recovered nearly $2 million from slow-paying and no-paying customers, and their Credit Risk Assessments (CRA) have helped numerous members make smart credit granting choices.
