What We Do
We work closely with our clients, big and small, to help them achieve their printing goals. Whether you are a larger organization, launching a project on a tight timeline or a very small non-profit with a limited budget, we can help you find the right products and processes to meet your objectives.
The Hive Printing Private Label
All of our products are lovingly designed and screen printed by us in our East Van studio, using a combination of archival images and maps and original artwork.
We chose our garments carefully, balancing cost, quality and sustainability. We chose mainly made in North America garments and endeavor to source more sustainable, local products whenever possible.
Transparency – It is important to us that our clients understand what they are paying for and how to not only maximize their budgets but also meet any other goals they may have. To meet this goal, we provide detailed quotes to assist our clients in understanding the costs involved in the print process.
Exceptional Service – Embarking on a printing project can be a daunting task! We consider it our job to help you understand the options that are available to you and how the process works. As a small, family run business – every time you call or email us, you will get in touch with a real person (usually Rebekah) who can assist you and answer your questions.
Quality – We have been in the printing business for close to a decade and are always researching new/better products to offer to our clients. It is our goal to work with each of our clients to make sure that the end product meets or exceeds your expectations.
