Press Release

Hemlock Display Solutions Ltd., a Western Canadian leader in wide-format printing services, today announced the acquisition of Burnaby-based Colortec Creative Print Solutions. Colortec was founded in 1988 and has served the Metro Vancouver marketplace with high-quality, wide-format print services for over 35 years. A second-generation family business, Colortec has built a strong reputation thanks to its dedicated team, responsive service and commitment to quality. The Colortec business will transition to Hemlock Display’s Burnaby operations effective August 1, 2024, with Chris Fetterly (President), Grace Holmes (Production), Cole Reid (Production) and Susan Bliss (Prepress, Customer Service) joining the Hemlock Display team.

“We are excited to welcome Chris and the rest of the Colortec team to Hemlock Display, and the wider Hemlock family.

Chris Fetterly, President of Colortec added, “The printing landscape has changed constantly for over 35 years, Colortec has evolved with it. From screen printing to inkjet roll printing, to digital flatbeds, we have adapted and grown with technology to meet the needs of our customers. The next phase of Colortec required more than we can do on our own. Hemlock Printers has stood out as the partner to make this happen. As another family run company with similar values, we are excited to join their team.”
