I have worked for Graphic Chemical & Ink Company since 1968 - with a brief hiatus(almost 4 years) to travel the World courtesy of my uncle. Sadly it turns out it was my Uncle Sam, and I wasn't too thrilled about the places that he chose to send me. My wife and I have run Graphic Chemical for many years, and have enjoyed the travel that comes with the position. We get to meet our customers (and the occasional vendor) from all over the World

We aren't too far away - hard as that is to believe - from the Southern Graphics Council conference in Chicago. The show ndates are March 25-29, 2009. The theme of the conference is Global Connections, and the committee is hard at work to put on one of the best conferences that SGC has ever had.
First of all, we're in Chicago, one of the great cities in the World (of course I'm biased). For the record - no cowboys and Indians, no Al Capone, and very few buffalo roaming the plains of the city, although we did have a cougar last Spring. Chicago is world class in every sense of the phrase - world class art & music, world class museums and galleries, world class architecture and world class sports...well that's a little bit of a stretch particularly with Winter sports.
Secondly, we're hosted by Columbia College a great school noted for its arts programs. Columbia is the home of Anchor Graphics, Columbia Book & Paper and some of the finest technology programs anywhere.
And finally, Chicago is just a scant 17 miles from the world headquarters of Graphic Chemical & Ink Company! If there is sufficient interest, we may try to organize a tour of our facilities for a group of attendees. You can always arrange for a private tour while you are in town, but we're hoping to jazz it up a little bit with a bus from the city, snacks and soft drinks etc. We have already begun the cleaning process so that when March rolls around we'll be ready for the onslaught.
