Printboom is a leading Special Event and Corporate Signage provider in western Canada and has been providing high quality and innovative signage solutions since 1991. We have worked hard to become a company that is consistently reliable, provides exceptional service, and offers a wide range of cutting edge solutions and new ideas for your printing needs. In fact, we have been the first to offer many products in our market, including being the first to print directly to rigid substrate with UV inks, and being the first to start using digital printing for standard signage when our competitors where still using cut vinyl and hand lettering. In addition we are the first to offer a post-use recycling program for our printed signage.
Our company has a long and interesting history, being founded by two adventurous and inventive entrepreneurs, Leonard and Terry, in a 400 square foot garage. Through years of hard work, Leonard became known as the self taught “Guru” of the colour managing digital printing processes and was a sought after consultant to help others in the industry. Terry, formerly a high level manager at Kmart, brought his management skills and acute business sense to the table. This combination of expertise and hands-on business knowledge enabled Printboom to see the needs in the market and identify the print solutions that clients were looking for.
From these humble beginnings, Leonard and Terry persevered and thought of creative ways to attract high profile clients, starting with McDonalds. This was Printboom’s first contract, achieved simply by leaving a prototype for the McDonald’s pizza signs along with a business card in the McDonald’s office. When McDonald’s saw the quality and creativity of our idea, the contract was secured. From here, we built a name that is recognized by our clients as a provider of quality and expertise. We have gone on to develop relationships with many more well recognized brands, including Labatt, the BC Lions, Vancouver Canadians, Rick Hansen Society and H&M. We were also an official Print Provider to the Vancouver 2010 Games producing over 50,000 custom signs.
Today, we look forward to the future, and see the range of options available in the digital market to be exciting and expansive. With our continued success, we are finding ways to give back to our community, including sponsoring several youth soccer teams, hockey teams and Softball teams. Most of all, we constantly look for new ideas, services, and solutions to offer to you, our client, and take pride in providing service that has made us the leading print solutions provider in our industry.
