PIA San Diego is able to negotiate much better discounts than most members would be able to achieve on their own.

In fact, taking advantage of just one or two of these discounts may cover your cost of membership.


PIASD members are able to save up to 10% on all Apple products (excluding the iPhone). Unlike many group buying programs, this program saves members money on virtually all Apple products instead of just a select few. Besides just the discount, members are also eligible for these program benefits:

  • Free technical advice from other graphic arts professionals to build the right system for you
    • Online custom product configuration
    • Complete online catalog of the latest Apple and compatible third-party products
    • Easy payment with any combination of credit card, Apple Gift Card, and Business Financing
    • Free standard shipping on orders over $50
    • Dedicated Account Representative for all personal and business technology needs

Members: Call the PIA/SD office at 858.800.6900 to obtain the URL with discounted pricing


Members can provide their clients access to a full lineup of branded products—such as writing instruments, trophies and awards, and apparel—through the Buying Power Program with Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI®), the largest education, media, and marketing organization serving the promotional products industry. This program will provide members with the services to locate suppliers, source products, and sell branded products to clients and prospects. Members will also receive ASI’s industry-leading technology at severely discounted rates.
