I am looking for some advice from anyone printing in Canada. Looking for supplier tips. Specifically where to get plates made.
Advice on Importing supplies.
Also if anyone has a press for sale that can print 5x7 easily.
Thanks in advance!
Hi Karly, my name is Cory Vande Kieft and I am with Pella Engraving Company in Pella, Iowa. We manufacture magnesium letterpress dies and are able to ship to Canada. If you are interested or just have some questions, you can call us toll free at 877-549-5447. Here is the link to our website: http://pellaengraving.com/products-and-services/magnesium-dies/lett.... Good Luck!
There's also Sterling -- based in Toronto, with branches across the country (https://www.sterling.ca/graphics.cfm). The advantage is that you'll be dealing in Canadian dollars, and won't have to pay extra for customs and brokerage fees. You can speak to a rep and then send in your design by AI or EPS file. Not particularly cheap, but better priced that dealing with American companies in US funds. Hope this helps
We can't directly answer your question I'm afraid but in case it helps, you can find a list of other letterpress studios in Canada here.
They might be able to help. Good luck!
