Very fast, efficient and helpful. Good service & excellent quality. Keep up the great work!

» Certainly Alleviated My Stress... Jane
DomBlue has been a great help (and still is) to us especially during major submittals to the Client. We appreciate the promptness of all orders and most importantly, going beyond our expectations is both quality and service. There have been numerous times when I have expressed surprised receiving an order the same day, and even within a few hours after sending the request through.

I am very happy with the service of DomBlue. I’ve had the chance to use a different company in another project and using that as a gauge, there is not a comparison between what you have been offering us as a whole. You guys ae great!

I’d like to reiterate my appreciation for all that DomBlue has done for us. You have helped me a great deal during the major submissions, certainly alleviated my stress. Shout out to Fred Beach, Ray, Steve and Darren for all the help and going beyond expectations. Thank you!

» It Looked Great ... Chris
Chris was in the Burnaby shop picking up a job today and showed me a photo of the mobile we printed of his kid dressed as Spiderman. They hung it outside the front door of the birthday party so it was upside down and spun around. It looked great and he was quite pleased with. He says thank you.

» Everything Ready For Event... Terry
Thanks for getting everything printed/ ordered etc. Cisco and the designer were amazed at how little back and forth between designer/printer/ customer needed to take place to get everything ready for event. Small details like stuffing name badges into sleeves, gatorboard “feet” for signage didn’t go unnoticed. If/when Cisco Systems comes back to town they will be calling us for certain.

“Thank you for everything, Fred. You made this event very stress free for us.”

» Prints Look Great... Corey
We did 13 photo booth props for this client. 1/2″ black gator, double sided print and procut to shape. It was an unusual and interesting project.

‘Just wanted to say the finished prints look great and the size / scale are awesome. Turned out wonderful, thanks so much. It’s great to know I can make these now. Much appreciated!’

» Good Print Output... Arleen
Great service, staff are nice and accommodating. Good print output.

» Great Experience... Wayne
Always on time & great print quality. Great Experience. Good Job!

» The Extra Mile (Literally)... Emily
I am truly grateful and appreciative of the superb service I’ve experienced to help me produce the Bella Bella signage – it was a challenging assignment with the particular requirements combining the translation of fairly complex information into visuals that are easily understood. I found your gentle guidance on the type of materials and sizing, etc. invaluable, and the professionalism of the graphics staff is impressive. And all this was done with speed, including the extra mile (literally) to deliver the products to various destinations. Thank you very much indeed!

» Extremely Helpful... Kathryn
I needed some changes made to my Business Card Template so that I could go on line and order some more cards. This is the 2nd time I have made changes as sometimes our needs change. Both times melody Sparks and April Keyes were extremely helpful and were quick to get the changes made. I appreciate the help, their willingness to work with us to make our cards presentable and their professional opinions about changes we want made. The reason we do business with Dom Blue is because the staff make it easy to do and they look after us.

» Good Print Output... Arleen
Great service, staff are nice and accommodating. Good print output.

» Look Absolutely Perfect... Chrissy
I picked up the prints today, and wanted to tell you that they look absolutely perfect! They’re exactly what I needed, and everything was printed/finished as I had hoped! I’m sorry for all the confusion about the finishing, and I truly appreciate the time you took to get the signs redone for me.

Thanks as well to you and Dom Blue for the generosity in giving me the previous set of prints anyway. My sister is a teacher/librarian at a lower-income elementary school in East Van, so I’d like to donate the rounded-corner signs to their library. She is so grateful for this as they have few resources and parental help at her school to pull off projects like this. In the end, the prints won’t have to go to waste!

I hope you enjoy the rest of this sunny day. Thanks again for the superior customer service.

» Lovely To Deal With... John
As a company we had a printer that we had just used to print about 80 coroplast signs so I was hesitant to start chatting with Dominion Blue about getting more. I was referred to Melody through one of our estimators. When she contacted me one of the first things she mentioned was the web order portal. Ease of use was important to me as the process for ordering the last group of signs from my previous supplier was quite laborious. Her sales style was friendly and informative and she has been lovely to deal with.

» First Time Student Customer... Emily
I first call Dominion Blue today because it was my first time uploading a pdf file. I spoke with Jenny and she guided me through on how to navigate the Dom Blue website and what I needed to do first was to change my dwg from the AutoCAD into a pdf file. After some difficulty I called back and Jenny told be Bruce can help me with the AutoCAD system because he's more familiar with it. Bruce guided me along smoothly and I sent the file in to be printed. Not long after, Bruce called me and said my pdf is in colour and I wanted a black and white file. He guided me on how to do that then told me to come in with my usb and he’ll print if for me. On the way over, I got into a 3-car accident on the highway. I called Bruce and told him about, “I’m sorry I’m late I won’t make it until after 5”. He said its okay he’ll wait for me. I got there at about 5:10 and Bruce waited for me, he was patient with me and even gave me a handout for students for printing next time.

» Why Not Let Others Know... Paula
Great solutions. Quick Results. Speedy Service. If I’m happy why not let others know. I have been very fortunate in having their best staff to work with me!

» They All Look Great... Christina
Also on a side note I would really like to say thank you to you both for all your help in getting all these signs up and for being so organized and patient. They all look great and we have had many complements from the landlords and potential tenants.

» The Go To Place... Susan
Quality is good, pricing works in our budget, turn-around is quick. Pre-press staff are great about calling to ask questions or check details. Doing small run items and unique projects makes Dominion the go to place in my books.

» The Whole Team is Outstanding... Carolina
We’ve been working together for several years and we feel like you guys have our back. The work is consistently good and on the occasion that something has gone sideways, you’ve always been prompt to fix it without any hassle.

I’m highly likely to recommend Dominion Blue to others because of reliability, quality, and professionalism, service and pricing. As the graphics/design manager here, I’m very happy to work with Dominion. The whole team is outstanding and April and Melody really take care of us, even when we put so much pressure with deadlines. Much appreciated.

» Great Service and Great Attitudes... Rebecca
Most recently, I worked with Dominion Blue on behalf of one of my clients. The DB team were responsive by phone and email; always polite, courteous and solutions-oriented; and you guys got the job done on or before deadlines. Great service and great attitudes! Thank you! From a service perspective, you guys are great.

I’ve dealt with Dominion Blue in various capacities over the years. I used to work at Ballard and did all of our print work with DB during my tenure there. Today, I don’t do a ton of print work but I have recommended Dominion Blue to several people.
