Commercial Printing for Metro Vancouver and Surrounding Areas
Metro Printers is a commercial printing boutique that provides you with options for your printing needs. We are happy to work with you to ensure a high quality product that satisfies your every requirement.
Printing and Graphic Design Consultations:
Printing is what we do best. For 35 years we’ve had close relationships with designers and by exposure to their expertise and specific needs, we can offer a wider spectrum of graphic support. We would be happy to recommend a designer that will best suite your individual requirements after an initial consultation.
In-House Foil & Embossing, Bindery, Die Cutting, Scoring, etc:
At Metro Printers, our goal has been to keep as much of the printing process from consultation to finishing in house so we have the utmost control to ensure each project is completed just right for our clients.
We have a very complete letterpress shop to take care of the really special effects such as foiling, embossing, die cutting and automated glueing. And, of course, we have all the folding and binding equipment we need for almost any project that comes in the door.
Our passion is offset printing. We print on a state of the art UV, 5 colour Heidelberg Speedmaster, complete with an inline coating unit and perfecting device to print both sides at one time. We are on the cutting edge of the industry and can handle pretty much any project you can imagine or design.
Involving us early in your project means that we can contribute our experience and knowledge on how to achieve the best possible result and really add a “wow factor” with colour and special treatments.
Digital & Variable Data Printing:
Most cost effective for small quantity orders of colour reproductions. We can produce instant business cards, brochures and marketing materials, black and white, or colour, printed directly from your electronic file.
Our Xerox 800 Colour Press is the top in its class for clear, vibrant and colourful digital printing. We also offer variable data with this device to help with many mailing requirements, personalized direct marketing pieces or tickets with an variable ID count.
