In fact, we’ve chosen our name – a derivation of “allegro,” a musical term for picking up the tempo – to reflect the highly responsive way we work with our customers. If you know us, then you know of our commitment. If we’re new to you, we welcome the opportunity to demonstrate how we can serve you. The possibilities will amaze you.
Printing today means more than putting ink on paper. From concept to finish, we offer an array of value-added capabilities, saving you precious time and money.
Quality Full-Color Printing
Catch their eyes. Never underestimate the power of color. It’s bright, attractive and eye-catching. In fact, research shows color makes it easier to capture a reader’s interest. It also enhances readability and improves message retention. And aren’t those exactly the things you want your print pieces to do? We suggest you give color a good look. Use it whenever you can. We can help with color printing capabilities – from offset to digital and even high-speed copying – that will give you a rainbow of choices. Call us: 604-681-5599. We can talk a blue streak about color.
Digital Color Printing
A smart solution for the short run. Low quantity doesn’t mean you have to settle for low quality. You’ve probably faced this familiar challenge: you need to print something in color, but the quantity is too small to make offset printing a smart move. May we suggest something smarter – and more economical? Digital color printing is a remarkable way to ensure high-quality output (yes, better than your office laser) for low quantity needs. We can print digital files directly from a computer to our digital printer without having to make film or plates. Not only does that give you real dollar savings – because you order only the quantities needed, be it 5, 10 or 25 – it also means full color with no compromise; color you’ve got to see to believe. That’s not just smart, that’s brilliant. Get beautiful, affordable full-color print materials at prices you can afford. The advanced technologies of digital printing offer numerous benefits for small businesses including one-to-one capabilities, shorter runs and faster turnaround.
Signs, Posters & Banners
Big impressions for big results. Be seen. Be noticed. Get the attention you deserve. Allegra has the capabilities to make your message stand out with large format, full-color signs, posters and banners. Use them for:
- Meetings and conferences
- Point-of-purchase and sales displays
- Trade shows and exhibits
- Informational and safety signage
Or anywhere else you want your big idea to come through. Think such big items cost big bucks? Quite the contrary. Talk to us. You’ll be pleased to learn that as your single source for design and print services, we keep costs contained. And that’s really big.
Designs for success. Don’t underestimate the power of graphic design. While printing quality, paper, ink and words are all powerful communications tools, the right graphic elements can pull it all together and make a difference in what gets noticed – and what gets overlooked. We offer a wealth of graphic design ideas, techniques and executions that can deliver your message with dazzling effect. Whether it’s a simple business card, a complex brochure or your company logo, we put imaginative ideas on paper for you. Talk to us: 604-944-9424. See what we have in mind.
High-Speed, High-Volume Copying
Fast. Top quality. Economical. Why wait in line or bring your project to a halt because someone in the office is tying up the copier? Allegra is your solution for high-speed copying. Whether you need just a few or a few hundred, black-and-white or color, we can handle it. Send us your digital files or drop off your originals. Using our state-of-the-art equipment, your project will be completed quickly and efficiently. The results will look crisp, clean and professional. After all, we’re Allegra. And no one can duplicate that.

Bindery & Finishing
The grand finale. A great printing job deserves a great finish. When your print order is completed, you’re at the point where you can take the job to the next level – the level that says quality, attention to detail and “we care about how things look.” It’s what we call our bindery and finishing services and they ensure your materials wear better and look their best. Our services include:
- Shrink wrapping
These services significantly improve the appearance of your pieces. And, by adding to your materials’ durability, they add lasting value. A grand Allegra finish.
Made easy. Print management doesn’t necessarily sound complex, but it can be. In fact, it can be overwhelming. Consider what’s involved in even the simplest print projects: design, paper selection, ink choices and the shape and size of the piece. Then there’s quantity, timing and inventory, making sure there’s always enough – but not too much – current material on hand. Compound that with multiple projects or company locations or a complete literature system and “overwhelming” may just apply. That’s where we can help, by setting up a system that simplifies print management while raising efficiency and reducing waste. No matter how big or small your organization is, we’ll make your life easier. A lot easier.
Direct Mail & Variable Data
Break through the clutter. Direct mail can be a powerful marketing tool, provided it’s as effective and appealing as possible. Otherwise it could be an expensive exercise in frustration. But we can help it pay off. At Allegra, we go far beyond printing to assist you in reaching your audience and getting results. With our resources on your side, we’ll help target your audience and tailor your message. We’ll make sure your materials get noticed, fashion your call to action and help you follow up. Bottom line: direct mail works. And we can make it work better. Tailor your company’s message to your target audience and show your customers you truly understand their business needs. Customize your print communications materials and benefit from the cutting-edge print technologies of variable data.
Make each customer important. Single out your customers and talk to them individually. It’s the best way to build a lasting relationship that’s beneficial for everyone involved. And, of course, we can help. Allegra can personalize your message to target individuals and speak to them directly, referring to them by name and inserting other specific information throughout the printed piece, whether it’s a letter or brochure. Does this kind of personalization work? Research shows addressing customers by name rather than anonymously means they are four times more likely to respond to your message. No wonder one-to-one is the way to build a business. And going one-on-one with us is a great way to make it work.
Consultation & Education
Knowledge at hand. We’re proud of the consultation and expertise we can provide to our customers. Our professional staff can analyze and meet all your printing and graphic communications needs. In fact, we can advise you on every aspect of your project including which process is most appropriate – digital vs. offset, the type of paper to use, how to maximize efficiency by combining jobs and more. All with the idea of giving you the best possible quality in the most cost-effective way. We’ll work with you one-on-one or in small group training sessions at your facility. And we’ll help you see how each project fits into your overall marketing and communications plan. It’s this sort of knowledge that separates Allegra from the pack. Consult with us. What we know – and it’s a lot – we’re happy to share.
