Pazazz Printing of Montreal becomes the first Canadian printer to achieve PANTONE Certified Printer status. The program, according to PANTONE parent company X-Rite, reviews and analyzes every aspect of a commercial printer’s colour operations – from preflight, to file preparation and proofing, to ink formulation and mixing, and to process control in the pressroom.

Pazazz is leveraging a CxF colour exchange workflow and PantoneLIVE to build standard procedures across its operation for consistent colour results. “As the first printer in Canada to achieve PANTONE Certified Printer status, Pazazz underwent a rigorous certification process to confirm its ability to match PANTONE colours using both CMYK and spot colours,” said Murphy Keeley, Vice President of Marketing and Services, X-Rite.

In operation since 1992, Pazazz provides offset printing, up to 56 inches, toner printing, labels, packaging and wide format. Pazazz is also a certified G7 Master Printer and is FSC certified.


“The Pantone Certified Printer status complements our G7 Master Qualification and strengthens our process controls in order to deliver the highest quality colour printing to our customer,” said Warren Werbitt, Founder, Pazazz Printing. “We are extremely excited to be the first and only printer in Canada that can offer this level of quality assurance. The certification provides us with a competitive advantage and sets us apart in the marketplace.”
