Walmart will start offering printing services targeted at small businesses from its PhotoCentre locations in Canada.

“These new services are an integral part of our commitment to provide our customers the best assortment of on-demand printing services,” said Crystal Taylor, National Manager for Walmart PhotoCentre.  “Whether it is photo, photo gifts or business printing items, Walmart offers our customers great products at low prices. Walmart PhotoCentre is much more than just photo printing.”

PNI Digital Media, headquartered in Vancouver, will provide the online gateway as well as templates for printing products aimed at the small business market as well as general consumers. Part of the Walmart PhotoCentre, Business Printing enables small business owners and consumers to easily order marketing and business materials using designs provided by PNI Digital Media. Products include business cards, notepads, letterhead, envelopes, fliers and posters. Walmart Business Printing also offers services such as colour, black & white copy services and coil-bound printing services.

Furthermore, the Business Printing service offers a broad range of promotional products such as customized calendars, fridge magnets, golf balls and mugs upon which companies can print their logos and other information on.

Each product is available in a range of standard sizes, and all orders are available for home or office delivery, or pick up at any of Walmart’s 312 stores across Canada.

“With an average of 130,000 new small businesses opening across Canada yearly, we’re excited at the growth potential of this marketplace” said Kyle Hall, Chief Executive Officer of PNI Digital Media.  “By leveraging the extensibility of our PNI Digital Media Platform, Walmart can instantly offer compelling products in a whole new market segment.  Over time we will see more services and products added to the PNI Digital Media Platform that are focused on solutions for small business.”
