Canadian Printer of the Year 2009
Established in 1977, MET Fine Printers continues to be the market leader in the art of commercial print and services. As an innovator of new technology, the company has long invested in the environmental programs which set us apart from the competition. Our plant and office facility is 100% greenhouse gas free; one of the few such printing businesses in North America. Our use of UV inks is now standard practice and we heavily promote the fact that they release no volatile organic compound emissions (VOC) plus any unused waste ink is remanufactured into black ink. The production benefits of such a process include faster make-ready and drying time. In addition, our internationally patented process of remaking blankets for offset printing prolongs the life of the blanket by up to 400%, reducing waste, saving materials and money. Everything has contributed to Metropolitan being one of the most environmentally awarded printers in recent years.
With such a manufacturing facility, Metropolitan produce everything from company brochures, product literature, marketing collateral, business stationery and extremely bespoke pieces of custom print. Our policy to offer continued improvement has lead to the development of new products and services which can be offered from our head office in Vancouver. As a specialist lithographic offset printer, we have extended our portfolio to become a one-stop-shop solution to a company’s printing needs. Apart from the magnificent two 8 colour UV 40” presses, other services include;
- small sheet offset print
- Digital print
- Large format poster printing, laminating and mounting
- B/W and colour copying and binding
- Bindery services
- Print facilities project management
Here at Metropolitan, we pride ourselves in bringing together a print solution and not just a print product. We are happy to be involved in coordinating a number of requirements together at the same time and control the logistics of storage and distribution where applicable. This becomes particularly appropriate with project management and where lead times are tight. We have experience and the knowledge to take on these responsibilities in partnership with the customer in order to reach a satisfactory conclusion.
Why use Metropolitan for Vancouver conference material?
Situated on the outskirts of Downtown Vancouver and only 15 minutes away from the conferencing facilities, the thought of having printed material delivered on time has never been more reassuring. The cost to print and deliver into Vancouver is not only logistically difficult but costly and detrimental to the customer’s carbon footprint. Metropolitan offer a solution that is not only far more cost effective but reliable and extremely environmentally friendly.
In terms of a print solution, we offer a dedicated customer service representative to coordinate all aspects of the conferencing material making it one less headache for the organizing committee. Our high-end prepress facilities allow for the fast reproduction of artwork files into proofs for approval prior to going to press and ensuring quality and continuity between product ranges such as brochures and banners. We are specialists in assisting with Brand Management, maintaining the professionalism of the company represented at the conference.
