The

Story

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.

Management Change, Year 2000


It wasn’t until a change in management the early 2000’s that saw Copywell soar to the top of the digital printing industry with a strategic investment in colour printing services, combined with bindery and fulfillment equipment to serve a growing customer base of book printing customers.

Wonderful, the whole experience was amazing - from start to finish. Mark Lacaria looked after my order and helped the... whole way through. Great value and incredible quality. He patiently answered all our questions (some of them, no doubt really dumb) and led us through the whole process. Cant compliment Mark and all the staff enough. It also felt like a nice place to work with pleasant, empowered and happy staff. Thrilled to have found it. Thanks Mark.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

I... was impressed with their prompt responses to my queries, the quality of the work, and the reasonable prices. I recommend them highly, and will use them again for future printing and Kickstarter fulfillment needs.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

We hired Copywell to print our first set of high quality / professional training materials. To say that it met my... expectations would be an understatement.Chang Su was very responsive during the sales process, and their prices were so reasonable compared to all other competitors that I feared the quality would be bad. It wasn't.The books came out beautifully. I'm very proud to have our materials provided by Copywell. We'll be a longtime / loyal customer!read more

I've been printing my comic book series with Copywell for the past couple years. They are such fantastic printing... partners, and I say partners because that is what they really are. They truly care about the clients that they service, and will go the extra mile to make sure your end product is of fantastic quality and accurate. Not to mention great prices that is more than out-matched by the quality of the inks and paper stocks that they use. Thanks to JD, Mark and team!read more

We recently printed a recipe photo book with Copywell as a fundraising project for a local charity. The books turned... out beautifully and everyone was impressed by the quality of the print. We also appreciate the great customer service from the staff, especially Mark. This is our first print project and we asked many questions. Mark promptly responded to all our questions and was patient in guiding us through the process. Turnaround was very quick which allowed us to make a deadline. I will definitely use Copywell for all of our future projects.read more

I discovered Copywell after looking for a local printer to produce my photobooks. After working with Mark, I can... confidently say that there is no other place I will consider getting my books made. He has been so incredibly accommodating and helpful, and I feel like I am treated so personally despite knowing there are probably many other people and orders going on. The prices for my books have also been incredibly reasonable, and I am able to continue my business successfully because of the help from everyone at Copywell. Would highly recommend and refer other people to use their services.read 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
