Sherwood Printers buys Printer Gateway

Manoj Sheth

Leading Ontario trade printer Sherwood Printers (Mississauga, Ontario) has purchased the Printer Gateway building (also located in Mississauga, Ontario) as well as the majority of its printing assets – including its prepress equipment, presses, bindery equipment, software, online assets and more. Sherwood owner Manoj Sheth is planning to re-launch Printer Gateway as a trade-only gang-run printer next month. Printer Gateway was one of Canada’s largest nationally recognized web-to-print trade printers. The company had a huge array of offset, digital and wide-format presses as well as cutting, bindery, shrink-wrapping and folding equipment. It was eventually closed by owner Supremex (LaSalle, Quebec) in December of 2016.

Sherwood Printers provides a variety of services and print products including stationery, promotional, mailing, POS, Multi-page, packaging and other specialty printing. Its online printing centre facilitates instant online quotes and orders. The company also continues to stay on the cutting-edge of new technology. In 2017 it purchased the LasX LaserSharp Laser Module that eliminates costly mechanical dies. Basically, clients send two original PDF files that act as layers – one for the artwork itself, and the other as a die line. The LaserSharp then cuts from the PDF. This has facilitated some of the shop’s most striking die-cut creations in small to large quantities – such as custom packaging, pocket folders, wedding invitations and much more – in a much more cost-effective manner.
