about

OUR HISTORY

At Advertek , we have evolved into a leading, one-stop-shop, commercial printer and full-service communications provider since our establishment in 1996. From a modest eight employee shop at our inception , we have significantly expanded into a comprehensive FSC -certified printer, serving numerous industries from retail and manufacturing , to businesses in the financial and insurance sectors.

Since our company was founded, we have maintained a strong focus on sustainable growth through capital investment. Today, more than 70 employees call Advertek their place of work – working out of two state-of-the-art printing facilities: one in Vaughan, and another in Brampton.

Change is a natural and inevitable process of any business – however, as we continue to grow (and go “beyond ink”), we do not waver from our steadfast dedication to meeting our customers’ needs and providing high quality and vibrant colour printing.

We embrace the philosophy of attention to detail and service every step of the way and are proud of our highly skilled and devoted staff who carry out this process.

Our staff renews this promise to our clients every day. We are also committed to being a responsible corporate citizen, nationally, and a good neighbour, locally. From our early beginnings, we have been mindful of our impact on the environment and engage in eco-friendly, sustainable practices, on a daily basis.

Our Team

We credit our success to the staff and the people who work for the company. In fact, we often pride ourselves on continuing to grow to new levels of innovation and technology by investing in our greatest asset – our people.

With proficient printing press staff, experienced general labourers as well as competent administrative and sales people, we have assembled a fully-integrated, rapidly responsive team of impassioned professionals. We believe that having this, unequivocally, leads to success.

We bring together recognized and credible leaders in the areas of print innovation and production management. It is their combined skills that will guarantee the successful execution of your project every time. Our clients coordinate with one team for all phases of a project, which provides a sense of continuity, stability, trust and transparency.

Our knowledgeable team is the driving force behind our company’s tremendous growth and that of our clients.

Our Facility

Our facilities embody modern-thinking and innovation – qualities that are required in today’s print industry. Our new facility located in Vaughan – a custom-built, 30,000 square-foot building, containing state-of-the-art technology – was designed by our company to meet such requirements, and our customers’ needs in a timely manner. The new facility was also built with an emphasis on quality control, lean manufacturing and environmentally responsible manufacturing processes.

With new printing equipment and technology, our Vaughan facility has effectively doubled our company’s production capacity, enabling our business to offer greater cost efficiencies, quality control and customer service. With such upgrades and advancements, we can carry out a variety of printing processes with ease: from litho to wide format, to bindery, die cutting, finishing and packaging. It’s everything you need, all under one roof.

Our Vaughan facility contains a customer lounge and offers a Wi-Fi business area, as well as a comfortable entertainment and reading section, refreshments and more.

Expansion is a sign of growth – and growth is a sign of strength.

Brampton

As a constantly growing and evolving company, we acquired the commercial printing SLG Group’s 38,000 square-foot Brampton facility in 2015. At this location, we were able to expand our first rate small and large format digital printing, as well as dye sublimation printing and fulfillment services.

Come and visit our Brampton facility, conveniently located near Torbram Rd. and Steeles Ave. W. near Highway 407.

Security

At Advertek, we want to provide you with peace of mind and a sense of security when it comes to us developing your printing products. We understand that some of your printing projects have proprietary value and are exclusive to your company. Rest assured, our surveillance systems are active 24/7 and monitoring our facilities to ensure that your projects are in safe keeping. In addition, Advertek’s facilities are strictly key fob accessible, whereby only authorized staff can access the print production area.

You’ve worked hard to design such stunning printing products – with our security system, we’ve invested in assuring that they are in good hands.

Eco-Conscious

As a large manufacturing company, we must be cognizant of our impact on the environment and exhibit the utmost respect for the planet we share. At Advertek, we manufacture our printing products with the goal of achieving the highest quality possible, in the most efficient manner, while minimizing our ecological footprint as much as we can.

We continually search for and employ environmentally friendly practices in order to conserve natural resources like paper, water, electricity and other energy sources.

Our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility is strong and real. (Click here to read our Corporate Social Responsibility Statement).

Our brand-new, custom-designed, Vaughan facility was built with an emphasis on green building practices, eco-performance, resourceful manufacturing and environmentally responsible production processes. We carefully planned the design of our custom-built facility to use as much natural lighting as possible. The facility was also fitted with high efficiency fixtures, which are switchable at each workstation in the plant (so we only use the lights we need). With a hardline on efficiency across our entire operations, we’ve optimized our new plant layout to increase our business output by 25% with no appreciable increase in energy consumption.

At Advertek, we’re committed to environmental and economic sustainability. 

Some of the day-to-day business processes that we have refined to support and promote a greener bottom line for you and for us include:

  • Achieving FSC certification by the Smart Wood Program of the Rainforest Alliance, which allows us to promote the use of environmentally friendly paper options to our customers.
  • Implementing digital workflows for proofing and plate production.
  • Migrating to CTP (computer-to-plate) technology, which has allowed the removal of old film imaging equipment and eliminated the use and storage of chemicals required for film processing.
  • Installing colour control systems to reduce make-ready waste.
  • Eliminating the need for paper proofs on press, saving paper and toner.
  • Purchasing ink for presses in large bulk containers to eliminate the waste of smaller containers and the use of shipping containers.
  • Installing ink levellers on the presses to reduce ink waste.
  • Using low VOC vegetable based inks. The inks we use are now over vegetable-based.
  • Sending inks, oily water and solvent wastes to a disposal company that uses them for incineration fuel – never to a landfill.
  • Recycling aluminum plates.
  • Recycling all paper waste generated by the plant and office, including scraps and trim generated on the production lines.
  • Recycling all plastic waste generated by the plant and office.
  • Recycling or re-using all skids and pallets.
  • Sourcing environmentally friendly product packaging and shipping materials.
  • Donating old computers and electronics to local organizations for repurposing programs.
  • Let us work together to deliver your message to your market while lowering our total impact on the environment.

FSC Certification

Advertek is FSC® certified by the Rainforest Alliance.

Paper is by far the single biggest component of a print job. FSC certification allows us to offer you the most environmentally friendly paper options.

Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) certification demonstrates that we maintain Chain of Custody of the paper products we print on. Chain of Custody certifies that all raw wood materials, from which paper is manufactured, are from responsible sources and not from protected forest areas. The origin of the wood must be documented and tracked at all steps of manufacturing and distribution. This certification was attained after a thorough audit by an independent auditor of our procedures and systems in place.

Ultimately, in working together on environmentally friendly paper decisions, we can help you determine the best and most cost-effective ways to extend the value of your green print initiatives and communicate your environmental commitment to your customers.

G7 Certification

The G7 System Certification Program evaluates the ability of a software system to calibrate a printing device to meet the G7 grayscale definition using four 1D Curves.

  • Ideallianc established  a certification process to evaluate the ability of a software system to calibrate a printing device to meet the G7 gray scale definition using four 1-D curves and support the application of the G7 methodology in process control.
  • G7 Certified Systems are certified by Rochester Institute of Technology to meet or exceed established industry tolerances and are capable of calibrating a printing device to meet the G7 grayscale definition.
  • Accompanying each G7 Certified System is an Application Data Sheet (ADS), designed to assist print producers and end users in the proper use and operation of their system.
