Hemlock is a highly focused, customer orientated organization offering complete printing services including in-house colour separations, electronic prepress, printing, binding and finishing and fulfillment. Our main plant uses Heidelberg presses exclusively for litho projects. Our digital division utilizes an HP Indigo 5000 for shorter runs and variable printing. We serve all major business sectors and specialize in advertising collateral, fine art printing, labels and packaging, publications, direct marketing, stationery, fulfillment services and corporate communications. We are widely recognized as the printer of choice for North America’s leading design and advertising firms.
Hemlock has taken a leadership position when it comes to promoting environmental awareness and sustainability. In 2004, a sustainability committee was formed to focus on improving environmental performance and developing internal sustainable practices. Hemlock actively promotes the use of FSC certified papers, uses low VOC vegetable based inks, and complies with all environmental laws. We pride ourselves on going above and beyond, and have been recognized for our actions by being named the Most Environmentally Progressive Printer in Canada for the past five years consecutively.
