It was officially established in April 2013 on the initiative of Russian printing industry professionals and with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation and the Federal Agency on Press and Mass Communications.

The printing industry is responsible for the manufacture of printed goods such as books, newspapers, magazines, booklets, brochures, postcards, labels, packaging, and more. One of the founding fathers of the printing industry in Russia is Ivan Fyodorov, the publisher of the first Russian printed publication that has an exact date.

Acts and Epistles of the Apostle, also known as the Apostolos, was printed by Ivan Fyodorov and Pyotr Mstislavets in 1563–1564. They began working on the Apostle on April 19, 1563 and finished on March 1, 1564. The anniversaries of both dates were declared holidays in Russia, the former is Russian Printing Industry Day and the latter is Orthodox Book Day (celebrated on March 14 N. S.).
