As a small family business, our laser beam focus has always been and will continue to be serving other small to mid-sized businesses who require high quality printing in lower quantities with budget-friendly prices -- and always a real person on the other end of the phone or email message who isn't thousands of miles away from our location -- we're really on-site.
As a Toronto-area printing company, we are celebrating our 22nd year in 2016. We started out as a design firm in the late 1980s and in the early 1990s evolved into a wholesale fine art greeting card company ( My Sentiments® Greeting Cards) located in the Toronto, Ontario area. From the greeting card business, we found that there was more of a need to provide small businesses, just like ourselves, a way to promote themselves affordably, and GFX Printing was officially born in 1998. In 2014, we moved to Toronto.
All online colour printing of postcards, business cards, bookmarks, etc. is gang run on large presses. This means that numerous files are on the same sheet with many other customers. Colour reproduction is typically "pleasing", although we strive for better than that and will usually get "bang on colour" -- we can't guarantee that colour will be "bang on" every time, but we do guarantee that we'll do our best.
We use soy-based inks instead of traditional petroleum-based ink. Also known as vegetable-oil ink, soy ink is a great advancement in the print industry. Soy ink is a safe and environmentally friendly ink because of its simple compound compared to petroleum–based ink. Soy ink can also be easily removed from paper, which is helpful in paper recycling because it is quicker to process the paper which leaves a smaller carbon footprint over petroleum-based inks.
Our Aqueous and UV coatings consist of very low to zero traces of volatile organic compounds (VOC) which reduces harmful components that damage the atmosphere and the surrounding environments. Our production facilities are all alcohol-free environments using only alcohol substitutes as well.
We use paper that is produced specifically for paper-making and is not produced from illegally deforested trees.
