Webcom offers state-of-the-art digital inkjet printing and traditional offset book printing, binding, distribution, and warehousing. With over 180 employees, our focus is to provide printing solutions for publishers of all sizes in trade, education, directory, professional and reference markets. Over the years, we have completed thousands of projects with different levels of complexity, specification requirements, and turnaround options.
Since 2011, Webcom has invested over $30 million in leading-edge digital inkjet technology to provide an end-to-end full service publishing solution. In June 2016, Webcom was selected as HP’s original collaborator on the worldwide launch of the HP OneBook solution. This powered Webcom’s new print-on-demand solution, BookOnDemand, providing production flexibility, order efficiency and faster turnarounds from quantities of 1 to 100’s.
Webcom has proudly sponsored many events and organizations in the Canadian Publishing industry including Tech Forum presented by BookNet Canada, ACP Annual General and Mid-Winter Meetings, Word on the Street Toronto, Interquest Digital Book Printing Forums, Canadian Printing Industries Scholarship Trust Fund (CPISTF) and more.
