About Us


“There’s a thousand good printers in town. Calabar stands out for one reason: customer service.

“The people of Calabar Printers, Ken, Vince and Jennifer, make us feel that each of our projects is their most important job. They make the BC Dairy Foundation look good.”

Paul Hargreaves,

“Since 1993 Calabar Printers has been Choices print supplier. Choices Markets has worked directly with Calabar Printers on a regular basis to produce our print and promotional materials. We have now grown to 8 locations and Calabar has grown with us. They meet our needs as they arise; we have confidently recommended Calabar Printers to others because of their excellent service.

“Feel free to drop into any of our stores and pick up one of Choices (and Calabar’s) flyers!”

Ann Douglas,
Office Manager

“For over thirty years Calabar Printers and Securiguard have enjoyed consistent growth and a partnership of mutual respect. Calabar is our supplier of choice for all of our printing needs including a system of storage in excess stock of our most used items �on the floor�, so that when we request printing it is a very quick turn around - which is often required!

“No matter what the challenge, the team at Calabar always comes through. I would not hesitate in recommending their services.”

Lorna Paddison,
Director, Administration
