31 Benny awards, the Oscars of the print world, more than any other Printer in Canada.

At MET we have come to learn if you do your job well, you get a little recognition from your friends and peers.

We see this as a validation of our commitment to always moving in the right direction.

Dedication to our craft.

It’s what has enabled us to win more Benny Awards (Printings Oscars) than any other printer in Canada. Environmental Innovation, “They said it couldn’t be done”, Best Stochastic printing, awards from these and many other categories adorn our halls.

Our clients benefit from added notoriety, (we like to share) and frankly from a branding point of view it just doesn’t hurt to have your name in lights occasionally.

The real winners are our staff, the talented crafts people be it in the office, in pre-media, on press, in the bindery or making deliveries, everyone contributes that added touch to make the MET experience what it is today.
