When owners and managers of screen printing businesses have a job opening in their art department, they often have difficulty finding qualified applicants. Entry level graphic artists typically do not have the specific graphics art training that is required for screen printing.
Moreover, most experienced graphic artists have the creative talent for artwork design but lack the specific knowledge and/or training to produce and prepare art for production in a screen printing shop. To fill this need, American Screen Printing Association has developed the Certified Graphic Artist—Screen Printing (CGA-SP) certification program.
