It’s Time to Shake Up the Realm
No More Create, Wait, Pray
exulted transformation into hard matter. Sure you can print stuff almost anywhere – but if you seek something awesome, something that differentiates your vision, pleases the human eye – captivates and then activates your customers – then you need our help. Together we will smash the ancient client-printer paradigm of Create, Wait, Pray.
What We Do
Print Passionistasnoun: print·pas·sion·is·ta \ˌ ‘print-pa-shən-ˈēs-tə\
Definition2) An empowered Mi5 Print team member be it sales, account service or operations, who by design has multiple years’ experience and who provides clients with unparalleled direct guidance and direction on any creative or technical matter whatsoever.
GAME CHANGING INNOVATION
Since Day One Mi5 has been inventing, commercializing and embracing new products and methods in print production that continue to pay dividends for marketers who demand a transformational end product and premier service experience.
Founded in Prepress.
Mi5 began as Canada’s ﬁrst all digital pre-press bureau and boutique printer. As customers have requested, so has Mi5 adapted, experimenting with new technology and acquiring the equipment to do a better job for less.
Small or large, size has never held us back. Starting in back of an industrial garage 13 years ago with a single 5 color press, forged in the shadows of an industry that had turned its back on craftsmanship and creativity, Mi5 has transformed into Canada’s Fastest Growing Printer and a member of the Proﬁt 100 Companies for 5 years in a row. Continuing to invest in top line technology while other printers held back or disappeared, Mi5 now has over 75 state-of-the-art litho, digital, large format and bindery machines ceaselessly working to create something awesome 24/7/365.
Renders True Color
When traditional industry rulers chose to pursue commoditization and sacriﬁce quality, Mi5 rallied on to lead a new revolution of technological innovation, service intelligence and manufacturing excellence – seeking boldly to deliver maximum value for each and every dollar. Even the fundamentals of print technology were challenged and re-invented.
THE FUTURE IS PROBRITE
Developed by Mi5’s in-house gurus, and nationally recognized as a game changing innovation in the print industry by the Globe and Mail, this proprietary system delivers a richer color gamut that is deeper and more vibrant than has previously been achievable. From newsstands to store shelves – from corporate annual reports to direct mail ﬂyers – the reds have more passion, the blues more punch and the yellow is blinding. Choosing Pro-Brite gives you the edge to stand out in a space crowded by mediocrity – where conventional and bland every-day print production is radically eclipsed by the vibrancy and ﬁdelity of craft, science and passion.
