Technically The Finest
We know what we are doing, literally. We know to the minute how much time a process takes, how much paper is required, what enviro options are available and what is the most efficient layout for a given project. Our MIS (Management Information System) is the heart of our lean reporting software. This enables us to provide the most accurate estimates, real time production schedules and ties everything from estimate to scheduling to our storefront solutions together in one complete package.
MET loves you, and IT. If quality and service are the backbone of MET, IT (Information Technology) is one of the biggest muscle groups. You may not think of a printer providing data analytics, websites and campaign solutions but MET provides a key set of tools in your belt.
MET’s Pre-Media team utilize Kodak’s industry leading workflow and are Idea Alliance’s G7 Colour experts to accent their intuitive knowledge of color and process control. Technology enables us to automate many mundane facets of production but give us those strategic connection points where we apply our craft based on intuition and experience.
Our press operators are GATF certified masters of the most current equipment, printing techniques and technology, setting pace in an ever-evolving craft, often pioneering new effects and techniques. Our MET FX Program was developed to continually challenge the norms of print, nothing is really sacred when it comes to questioning a technique, process or material. We love to blend traditional Craft with Technology.
Finishing a job can make or break the success of the finest printed project, MET’s acquisition of Vancouver’s oldest full service book bindery in 2011 brought an incredible depth to MET’s pre-existing envious finishing department. Today, the ability, experience and ideation that comes from our team is simply unparalleled.
Breaking new printing ground is a regular occurrence at MET; in fact, we’re known internationally as printing pioneers, celebrated as much for stretching the craft’s limits as for our workmanship.
