TORONTO, ON—For the second year in a row, Metropolitan Fine Printers was awarded the Gold Medal for producing the “Most Progressive Environmental Printing Project” in Canada.
At last night’s Environmental Printing Awards banquet in Toronto, George Kallas, President of Metropolitan Fine Printers, received the honour for their production of the 2009 Western Wildlife Wilderness Calendar. The calendar exceeded all criteria required to take home Gold. In 2008, MET’s production of the Nike Inc. World Wide Annual Report won in the same category.
From the installation of MET’s first environmentally designed MAN Roland 700 40” UV press 7 years ago to our new State of the Art 700 series UV press, MET continually embraces the spirit of environmentalism. MET’s in-house R&D programs take their methodology far beyond the obvious recycled paper stocks. MET remains on the leading edge of their industry.
Kallas comments: “Very early on, we saw that environmentalism was the next wave of print technology. We embraced it years ago and it has allowed us to offer our clients incredibly beautiful sustainable printing at an extremely competitive price. I am proud of our staff who championed this initiative. Anything we can do to improve the environment is a win-win for our clients, employees and our community.”
