About

Web exPress Inc. was established in 1997 with eight staff, a single “starter” press and a 5-pocket saddle-stitcher. Since then, the company has grown to employ 50 staff and now houses three press lines, including an ultra-voilet unit enabling printing on lightweight glossy papers, a dedicated bindery and mailing department to meet the growing needs of its clients.

Since 2009, Web exPress has been part of Business in Vancouver’s “Largest Printer” list and was among the Top 100 Fastest Growing Businesses in BC in 2011.

With over 25 years in the printing business, owner and manager, Byron Sheardown, has a passion for the written word from journalism to poetry, and takes pride in providing exceptional value to his clients. From daily newspapers to magazines to retail inserts, Web Express’ team of dedicated and experienced professionals guarantees the best printed product at a reasonable cost, working with clients to meet their communications goals and objectives.

Our Quality Guarantee

Web exPress Printing shall provide its clients with guaranteed quality products, on-time performance, and exceptional value. We shall do this with reliable consistency enabled by responsive, professional service and state-of-the-art processes.

Freedom of Expression

The right to freedom of expression is recognized as a human right under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and recognized in international human rights law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Article 19 of the ICCPR states that “everyone shall have the right to hold opinions without interference” and “everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of his choice”.

As a printer of choice for a wide range of divergent voices and opinions published in dozens of languages, Web exPress holds this principle to be paramount.

Environmental Sustainability

At International Web exPress, we are serious about providing the best quality product with the lightest possible environmental footprint.  We welcome eco-friendly innovation; we were the first printer in North America to import paper made from wheat. And of course, we recycle not just paper and cardboard, but our ink, chemical-free aluminum plates, plastics and wood.
