WELCOME TO PRODIGY GRAPHICS

Quality print, amazing turnaround and the attention you need.

Prodigy Graphics is a trade-only offset printing specialist, serving the printing and finishing needs of North American print resellers, brokers, graphic designers, commercial printers and other print professionals.

From our centrally-located plant just north of Toronto, Ontario, and with both sheetfed and heatset web printing capabilities, our mission is simple:

- deliver the highest quality print,
- as fast as possible,
- at the lowest price possible.

And since 1976 that's exactly what we've been doing . . . every single day.

IT'S NOT ABOUT US . . . IT'S ABOUT YOU

As a pioneer in trade printing, we know it's all about YOU!

Prodigy Graphics is a wholesale trade printer. With nearly four decades of experience, we know your print needs are unique, special and different. Whether its booklet printing, poster printing or flyer printing, experience has taught us it all starts by listening . . . listening to you and understanding your unique needs.


OFFSET TRADE PRINTING - What's an Offset Trade Printer and why do I care?

Prodigy Graphics is a specialist in offset trade printing. This means two very important things for you.

First, we only print offset lithography. We are experts at our craft having spent decades honing and refining every detail.

Secondly, as a Trade Printer we have no in-house sales force. We sell ONLY to print resellers and print professionals - people who know what CMYK, 4/4 and PMS mean.


Why do you care? There are plenty of reasons:

Specialist - Business Card Printing

Some printers try to be everything to everyone - litho, digital, flat bed, wide format - all under one roof. Experience has taught that E2E leads to N2A - nothing to anyone. Specialists are the way of the world.

At Prodigy Graphics we know our strengths - offset printing and finishing - and that's where we focus our efforts. We know the fine details that go into brochure printing, postcard printing and door hanger printing, something generalists simply lack.

No in-house sales force - Letterhead Printing

For most print resellers this an extremely important detail. As the line between a commercial and trade printer blurs, you need the assurance that your trade printer won't undercut you and solicit your customer directly.

For over 30 years Prodigy Graphics has kept its pledge to NEVER contact our clients' customer. Our print resellers take comfort knowing we blind ship in unbranded packaging that never identifies us. Our name will never appear anywhere on your order.

Trader printers and FSC registration - Calendar Printing

Some trader printers boast about their Forest Stewardship Council registration. We think their bragging violates the trade printer "anonymous" rule. Why? Once a trade printer prints its FSC number on your piece, a simple search of that number on the FSC Public Search web page will reveal the trade printers identity. And if your customer is the one doing the searching, it's just a short hop to losing your customer.

Prodigy Graphics avoids this conflict by NOT being FSC registered. Instead, we encourage clients who require FSC print to become FSC registered, and then support them by being in full compliance at all times with FSC-ADV-40-010 "FSC requirements for outsourcing".

Reliability and quality - Catalog Printing

Your trade printer is an extension of you, so partner with a dependable, well-established one who has a solid track record. Price is very important but your reputation and livelihood are priceless.

Printing expertise - Greeting Card Printing

While most professional print buyers know all the tricks of the trade, occasionally you may need some advice. With nearly 40 years of trade printing experience there isn't much we haven't seen, so feel free to draw on our wealth of knowledge when it comes to label printing or paper and finishing options.
