Downtown Toronto Roots


Copywell began as a copyshop serving downtown Toronto students of U of T and the professional business market around Dundas and University Ave. Just outside St. Patrick subway station. With an arsenal of Xerox Docutechs the trade market in mono-printing quickly noticed, and Copywell began book production in the early 1990’s for a variety of clients.

After a financially and emotionally devastating experience publishing my first book with one of the big names I didn't... know where to go.But fortunately I found these guys and the experience was extremely good. Copywell printed a better product, they even helped with some edits and improvements, and they were friendly. This was all a change and best of all, they didn't charge me over $12,000 for only 400 books delivered to my home.If you are a first-time publisher/author like I am don't be afraid to try Trina and her people here!read more

I've printed two projects now at Copywell, and I've been really happy with the results! Both were bulk orders of around... 500 units, softcover and glue-bound, both arrived in a timely manner and packaged securely, and the quality of printing and cover finishing has been impressive!Mark was very helpful and patient with me as I had questions about the process and in providing comprehensive pricing, I felt very comfortable asking for updates and information.Would recommend as a reliable printer for folks looking to print in Ontario/GTA area!read more

Copywell is an amazing company to have your books printed with. Their customer service was excellent. Being a first... time author, I wasn’t sure exactly on what to do for book printing and the team at Copywell was very helpful. My hardcover books arrived looking even better than expected and they were packed so well to ensure no damage took place. If you are looking for a place to have your books printed, you’ve found it!read more

I spent over 30 years researching and developing our family tree. Since I had spent so much time and effort on this... project, I wanted to make sure that the printing of the books (required two volumes) reflected my desire to produce a top quality product that the entire extended family would enjoy for years to come. I am so grateful that I decided to go with Copywell. Mark and the team were outstanding, especially since they had to deal with someone who was extremely meticulous and writing for the first time. I believe the best compliment I can share is that they put me at ease right from the beginning. Also, the professionalism throughout this process would be difficult to match. They responded quickly to my questions or requests for feedback. In addition, they produced the books within the estimated timeline. I am extremely pleased with these books. The quality is better than I had anticipated – and my expectations were high! Everyone in the family is quite impressed with the quality of the books. One cousin commented that she wasn’t sure what to expect, but the books went beyond her expectations. This is my legacy for the family. It would be in the best interest of anyone considering self-publishing to consider the Copywell Team. I look forward to working with Copywell again.read more

From my initial interaction with Mark, I knew right away I was in good hands. I'm a first time author and needed to... have some marketing copies printed for distribution. I'm truly a novice, and Mark took the reigns, described the process, and answered all my questions. Even the 'roll your eyes' ones. And when I picked up my order, got home, and opened the box, I was thrilled with the quality of the product. My book looks amazing.So I highly, highly recommend Copywell. They're not the most inexpensive, based on my limited research, but the little extra cost was truly worth it. 5 Stars for sure!read more

I received the finished product a few days ahead of schedule and am absolutely blown away. The quality of the book is outstanding. Chang Su was so professional from the outset and Trina Al-Hani's design of the cover was amazing. I could not be happier with the level of service I received and the assistance they provided in pulling it all together.

I've printed two projects with Copywell and I would highly recommend them to anyone.Mark helped me with printing my... second graphic novel (I printed elsewhere the first time and was unhappy with the quality), and it turned out beautifully. The image/colour quality was perfect, and the book feels amazing in hand. Prices for a low-hundreds print run was competitive with all other nearby companies.I loved Copywell so much that I returned to them with an out-of-the-box printing request: one copy each of 4 different public domain novels, printed with custom hardcovers as a gift to my wife. Mark forwarded my email to Trina, who walked me through the entire process step-by-step, designed the covers & interiors of the books for me, and was a joy to work with every step of the way. This project was a huge undertaking, in my opinion, and Trina was professional, responsive, and supportive throughout. She gave me the impression that she put as much passion into this gift as I did, and I can't wait to finish a new book to have a reason to work with Copywell again.In addition, the staff at their Woodbridge facility has always been pleasant to visit (when I go to pick up my books).Seriously, great company to print with.read more

Copywell absolutely blew me away with the quality they were able to produce for my book project.We had a project that... was supposed to be printed on an offset press, and when we had to reduce the quantity we were printing we no longer met the minimums for any larger-scale manufacturers.Copywell saved the day and provided a truly impressive and high-quality end-product that more than met my standards. We printed hundreds of high-resolution images in our art book and they all turned out incredibly colour accurate and clear.On top of all of that, their customer service was impeccable. They went above and beyond to deliver the finished product we needed, and put up with a lot of changing specs and delays while we sorted out the logistics of our project. They even outsourced some printing for our covers since we were printing at the limits of their press, which saved me having to redesign the entire book to be smaller.They happily surprised me when they were able to take on an extra job and print greeting cards that were part of our Kickstarter rewards. Again, these turned out incredibly well.Finally, they were a huge help when they took on shipping fulfillment for a number of our orders. They were incredibly efficient and had over a hundred orders out in less than a week after we finalized our payment. On top of that, they once again sourced specialty supplies when we needed custom shipping boxes for our oversized books and the cost was still on-par with Canada Post (better, actually).I can't recommend Copywell enough for any small-press or promotional project. I've recommended them to other companies and they've had similarly high-quality results.Thanks Shikha and everyone at Copywell!read more

If I could give 10 stars I would in a heartbeat 🙂 I had my cookbook printed with Copywell, and the entire experience... has been stellar - from sales to prepress to production to even after sales. Trina and Mark are incredible assets for Copywell. I had expressed from the beginning that I did my research with printers overseas, but I personally found that they continuously added immeasurable value through their time, attention, expertise, and literally for actually caring for the project. When you get this crew to print your project, they are not just printing ink to paper but printing your passions and helping you achieve your project goals.I also had Copywell create the ebook. Since my book launch, I have been marketing it through my YouTube cooking show and have been mailing hundreds of print copies across the globe. Moreover, I've received many high praises regarding the beauty of the book (the addictively smooth cover - thanks Trina!) not only from colleagues, but from paying customers around the world.I'm looking forward to more print runs on this book plus future projects with Copywell with great anticipation :)- Wil Yeungread more

I used Copywell's services last year to print my books, as well as my posters. Not only did they have the best price... (by far, lower than every other quote I was receiving, even from the US) but they were also personable and responded quickly to every question.The quality was incredible, any time there was an issue, they were on the ball with informing us. They helped me get my black-tones perfect for the final print, as well as working on alignments/margins to make sure it printed.In addition to that, compared to previous printers we've used, we found the colour in the print was much more true (there doesn't seem to be any weird tint that I've found with other printers during their print runs), and crisp. 100% recommend giving Copywell a chance, especially if you feel your next step is to look out of the country!read more
