Quality news

Quality news

We are known for professionalism in journalism and it is a virtue we jealously guard. Our publications have, therefore, gained so much credibility with readers that in Ghana, “Graphic” is almost similar in meaning to “newspaper.”

State-of the-art technology

State-of the-art technology

We are always the pacesetters in the application of new printing technology in the newspaper and printing industries in Ghana. Currently, we use the computer-to-plate technology (which cuts out film in the printing process) and were the first to use this technology in Ghana.
