What Clients Are Saying
I am so happy with the results of my book and I am even happier with the cost. This was my first production of this magnitude and MCRL Overseas Group made it effortless. I can’t wait for the next project!
ASSOCIATE/ASSISTANT DIRECTOR of ART Inc.
Just days prior to Christmas, Santa dropped an incredible package! With support from the amazing staff at MCRL dreams came true. And what to my wondering eyes did appear, but two beautiful books.
MCRL is the perfect resource for self-published authors. The employees are cordial, and helpful, responding to communications quickly, answering all questions and producing a high quality product. I will be back very soon with more books to print…cannot wait to see the finished products! Shout out to Fabrizio, Jamie, Carol and Mankit…a great team! Thanks!
I had little to no experience with all that was required for printing a physical product. the MCRL team was patient with every question and every email, willing to explain things in an understandable way to get to the final product. Carol Popper especially worked alongside me via email for every step of the process.
This Covet to Cover Bible Journal went from a dream to a reality in a matter of months. Every fear of printing overseas and trusting a company I couldn’t physically visit, completely gone. The journals not only arrived, but arrived in tact. Meaning, every journal arrived already packaged with the journal, with the stickers on the back pocket, immediately ready for shipment. Most companies will not do a draft of the product before the mass production, MCRl sent one months in advance, which allowed me to pre sell the journals to cover to costs to print. Everyone who has touched and seen the journal in person has said that is looks extremely well put together, beautiful and worthy of major publishers picking it up for mass production. From the colors, to the stickers, to the box, to the actual journals, I am floored by the quality and time poured into this from this company.

From my first contact with MCRL their service has been outstanding. As a debut author, it was important to me to find a printing company that would be willing to accommodate a specific size that I was looking for in printing my book and also able to provide a jacket cover, that was a must for me.
It was also important to me to have a professional-looking book that highlighted the amazing talent of my illustrator. What sealed the deal for me, was the opportunity to purchase samples of their work prior to signing a contract, and their use of environmentally conscious materials.
It’s important when you’re releasing your first book to have a quality team that’s willing to answer all your questions no matter how silly they may seem and willing to be in touch and walk you through the whole process. The cost of printing was also favorable and competitive with other companies I had contacted. In fact, better.
I would absolutely recommend them to anyone interested in having their book printed.

Excellent customer service, great price, and a high-quality product. I can’t say enough about how excellent it was working with them. In particular, Jamie Sholl was fantastic to work with as she navigated me through the 2 – 3 month shipping process as a first-time buyer with them.
She even advocated for me to the American trucking company to move it along as quick as possible when there were possible delays on their end, and we got our journals on time thanks to her efforts. I couldn’t thank her enough! I am a co-founder and president of a small, non-profit who ordered some specialized smith-sewn journals through MCRL and they turned out perfect. The smith-sewn binding is sturdy and lays flat. The color on the cover and the pages was bright and the way it should be. The paper and materials are durable. There were no cut corners here on the product. I’ll definitely be using them again and recommending them to other businesses and non-profits – especially those who are in need of high-quality, smith-sewn journals at an affordable price.

Tyra Miller, creator of the Faith In Her Journal“I had journals produced through MCRL Overseas Group and it’s safe to say I’m a happy customer! I love the quality. This was my first time ordering journals for printing, and from start to finish the entire team ensured a smooth process. They were on top of answering my questions and had great communication.”
“I just received my book Piper Joy and the Grand Old Tree, printed by MCRL Overseas Group. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. It’s gorgeous! I’d like to thank Fabrizio, Carol, and Jamie for their patience and guidance throughout this process.
Especially Carol. This was an overwhelming process for me and she stayed with me and calmly educated and reassured me as to what to expect and how to make corrections. She was indispensable to making this book look so great. Thank you so much. Anyone looking for a great printer should consider MCRL.”

I had an amazing experience working with MRCL! To say, I have not been disappointed, is an understatement. My first contact with the company was with the account representative.
After my initial reaching out to the company via e-mail he responded by saying “let’s jump on the phone for a quick conversation so that I make sure that I understand the scope and depth of what you are looking to produce”.
That was just the beginning of the stellar service I received.
Every person from my initial contact, the art department, the production team and accounting was outstanding. They returned e-mails quickly, they were both informative and well informed of the project I was undertaking. There was not one detail left to chance.
I received my prototype for approval and was impressed. The quality of the card stock, the print quality and presentation was beyond what I had anticipated. My past work experience had brought me in contact with buying many of the same products that I was creating and the MRCL product excelled my expectations.
There was one correction that needed to be made and it was done in a timely manner with the minimum cost to my company.
MRCL provided better quality, outstanding customer service from every department and great pricing. Every problem, every challenge was dealt with in a professional and productive manner. I will be using MRCL for all of my printing needs going forward and I highly recommend this company.
MRCL, thank you for going above and beyond to ensure the project was completed on time. I am so very proud to present what you have produced on my behalf.

Kara Mae Harris
“I will be absolutely recommending this company to anyone looking to do an affordable offset print run. The print quality is well worth the effort over current digital printing options, especially at the cost.
Customer service was extremely helpful, realistic about timelines and costs, and always responsive even after the contract was signed. I had support right up until the books were in hand, and never felt like a second-class customer despite a relatively small print run. I have already referred a few self-publishers to this company.

“I’ve printed my planners with a few companies now, and MCRL was so easy to work with! They communicated along every step of the way, had an easy proof and ordering process, and the product was a hit with my customers. Will definitely order from them again!”

Maxine Bett“MCRL Overseas Group was an absolute PLEASURE to work with. They helped at every step of the way and offered many explanations and guidance throughout the whole project. If you are looking to create your own journal or other services they provide I HIGHLY recommend. I will definitely be working with them again in the future!”
“The project was in good hands from the beginning to the end. Being a print broker, they dealt with me fairly and patiently, while honoured trade pricing. The mock price was a true representation of what the final product would look like. Upon receiving the catalogues, we were not disappointed and the client was very happy.
No hick-ups, no extra billing, no surprises. Great job MCRL team. Looking forward to sending you more prospects.

“I had been looking for a printing company for my book for a while and was referred to this company by my editor. I could not be happier with the final product! The quality of the finished books and book boxes were incredible and extremely professional looking! Jamie and Fabrizio at MCRL were so helpful and knowledgeable in guiding myself through this process to create the perfect book.
I can’t recommend them enough to anybody looking to self-publish their own book!
Author and Entrepreneur
“I literally spent years looking for the right printing partner and finally settled on MCRL. They are far more than just a printer as Carol is a full blown production advisor and Jamie is a logistics rockstar. They are constantly going above and beyond. So very lucky to have found them and work with them!
“Each person appears to care about doing a good job simply out of principle, because they are the kind of people who value doing a good job. There is a lot of kindness there, yet also efficiency – no nonsense, no wasted communications, yet never a moment when you don’t feel you are in good hands. They wanted me to be happy with my product and they wanted me to get a great result.
You can trust their advice, as they have been doing this quite some time. When I needed to know specifics about textures and colors and such, the answers I got were accurate. They also helped me to address considerations I would not have known about on my own.
founder of Habit Joy
Not only are the people at MCRL – let’s name Josh, Carol, and Jamie – wonderful, but the product is equally fantastic. I could not believe how much it exceeded what I would have expected even in the best case scenario. There’s really nowhere else to go because I can’t imagine anyone else getting such exquisite results on the given budget. I have not even one tiny complaint or wish for things to have gone differently, because the experience was pretty much ideal.”
“The board books have been very positively received by my clients, including complements on their “technical” quality: the stain-resistant mat finish, nice pastel colours (true to the submitted artwork), the perfect thickness, smooth edges and rounded corners of the pages, and a sturdy binding.
Your use of environmentally friendly, soy-based ink has also been appreciated.
Author and Founder of ECL Publishing
… I very much appreciated your always prompt responses and thoughtful consideration of my requests and comments. From my early interactions with Josh who made efforts to ensure that the project met both my needs and my budget; Carol’s expert guidance through the production process and effective intervention with the factory to properly address the discovered deficiencies; Jamie and Quynh’s follow up on the shipments, making sure that the billing was correct and payments instantly acknowledged, through Mankit’s personal oversight to ensure customer satisfaction, I felt that you all have done your best to assist me. I invite you to have a look at the ECL Publishing website/internet store (eclpublishing.ca) where you will see very positive references to your company. I have thought you may enjoy this recognition.
Thank you, again, for helping me with this first self-publishing undertaking. I have just been asked to write more children’s books – and will definitely reach out again to you when I am ready to move ahead with another publication.”
“I can not express my gratitude enough for MCRL. Their professionalism, quick response time and quality of work is just the tip of the iceberg. During the process of creating my journals I ran into a personal problem that was met with empathy and solutions to receive my items and them to receive payment.
I recommend MCRL Overseas Group anytime I can because going above and beyond for your customers is a GREAT way to do business. Definitely 10 out of 10 as business rating.”

“MCRL group is amazing! After searching high and low for a printer that could print with tabs and to the specifications I wanted, I thought I would never find someone. But then I found MCRL!!!
Not only did they have the product I had been looking for, every single person is working in their genius zone and they go above and beyond to help! I cannot say enough good words about them. Superbly amazing.”

“I worked with MCRL this year to design and print my organization’s yearly planner. I inherited this project from a departed colleague and had no idea what I was doing in terms of project management. MCRL, especially Carol and Jamie, made the process so easy for me.
They were responsive, answered all my questions promptly, guided me through the process, and made sure we got our product produced with great quality and delivered on time. I can’t recommend MCRL enough!.”

“The quality of their journals are unbeatable and the customer service is great. They were constantly in touch with me through the entire process from the design to production. Highly recommend working with MCRL!”

“I just wanted to write you a personal note that extents beyond the regular business correspondence. The books arrived well packaged and look fantastic. A good part of their visual appeal is the excellence of the printing quality and paper selection.
As the visual artist of the book Islands, Lake of the Woods, a great deal of concern goes into the quality and balance of colour and MCRL excelled in the production. The feedback is very positive. As first time publishers there was indeed a great deal to learn along the way and hurdles to overcome. Thank you for all the time, commitment, understanding and very quick responses to our many enquiries. I realize, for a book of this complexity and quality, it takes a team effort from design, writing and production to bring it all together. A heartfelt thank you for all your efforts and help. Please pass my appreciation along to the production team for making a dream come true.”

I started printing with MCRL Overseas Group in 2011. It has been over a decade that we have continued to work with Mankit, Jamie, and Carol. We print hardcover and softcover books. People who see our product mention repeatedly that the books are super high quality. Read more… The black is ultra-black, the colours are vibrant, and the text is crisp. One gentleman who prints books mentioned that our books were excellent, and that it is hard to achieve this level of quality refinement in printing.
If you are debating who you should use for printing, you won’t be disappointed with the quality produced by MCRL Overseas Group. Furthermore the prices are a fraction of what it would cost to print in Canada. Thanks again MCRL Overseas Group for successful projects that required exceptional quality.”

“I have to admit. When you call a random company with your random printing idea you don’t know what you will get! I got thee best service and most patient team ever!! They have made my dream and fundraising idea reality. Thank you!”
“I had been working on my project for months, and couldn’t find anywhere that could bind and print my journals for me until I came across MCRL. I checked the reviews – which incidentally speak for themselves and started liasing with them. They listen to everything you say, nothing is too much trouble, and they email you back quickly. A special shout-out to Josh and Jamie. Jamie is just the most amazing human and a credit to the company. My products arrived beautifully and I couldn’t be happier. They have been such a pleasure from start to finish.”

“I have been working with MCRL Overseas Group for the past year on the production and shipment of the Peak Performance Planner. I can’t speak highly enough of their service and the quality of the print. The process was absolutely seamless from design to production to shipment. I worked closely with Jamie as they were some global shipping delays over the past few months that we had to work through together, but since she was so approachable and always responded to all my concerns and questions super quickly, I felt really well taken care of and heard. Thank you so much for helping me bring this idea to life!”

“The team at MCRL is extremely helpful and did an excellent job bringing the vision of my product to life! They did a thorough job ensuring the details of my project were carried out. I was sent a proof as well to ensure all the details met the expectations and allowed room to make edits as needed. They helped me through each step of the way of the process and I appreciated their transparency and continuous communication of what to expect next all the way to the arrival and shipment of the finished product at my doorstep. Even in the midst of the challenges and delays due to the pandemic I appreciated their honesty and open communication. In the end I got a quality product that I envisioned. Thank you MCRL Group!”
Cynthia Ryan“I worked with MCRL to print a children’s book recently. They were fantastic-they communicated clearly and often and kept me up to date on the project status through the whole process. the finished book is BEAUTIFUL. Wonderful job.”
“I used MCRL for the printing of my journals and they turned out great! The quality of the product was superior to other companies and the customer service was on point. I will definitely be using them to print additional products.”

“I recently ordered a second printing of 1500 hardcover copies of my graphic novel ON BEING YUKIKO from MCRL. I decided not to reprint with my original Canadian printer because of some printing issues they had made. When I learned about MCRL, I was excited to work with them and I liked that they are based in Canada since transactions can be in Canadian funds. After receiving a few quotes from other printers, MCRL came in over 25% cheaper overall.”
“I printed my first set of journals with MCRL last year (2020). I just placed my second order after selling out of the first! The quality absolutely blew me away! I did gold foiling on the cover of the MAGIC Journal. I was curious how it was going to come out and it exceeded my expectations. Also, before placing my order, the team was very good at answering all my questions. They sent me samples of features and ideas we discussed. I will be working with MCRL Overseas Group for a very long time!”
Dina Ranieri Harper
“Exceptional. I can’t say enough about MCRL and their conscientiousness and attention to detail. There is a reason they have all these 5 star reviews. They are great to work with, friendly and get the job done fast. Stateside printers are sadly slow, not in any hurry to help. Waited over a month just for a quote from a local printer. With MCRL, entire job done in 5 months (including 9 weeks shipping from China). And the finished product is EXACTLY as I pictured it in my head. Truly exceptional. Their customer service is the best in the industry.”
Founder of May + October Seasonal Self-Care Planner®
“I originally tried to print my planners directly with an overseas factory. The samples were terrible. When you are new to printing, you don’t know what you don’t know. I am so grateful to have found MCRL. They’ve done a phenomenal job on every detail of the Balanced Life Planner® and Designer Notebooks. Their team took the time to ask if I’d thought about this or that. I was never afraid to ask questions, they patiently explained terminology, included physical proofs and communicated with me throughout the process. When you surround yourself with experts, you don’t need to know it all. You just need to know who you can rely on. I consider MCRL part of my “A” team and look forward to working on many more projects together!”
Founder of Balanced Life by Karen Rae®
“I would just like to say that my experience with MCRL Printing was top notch from start to finish. This was my first book that I had printed, which I had also self-published, and I had a lot of questions as I am a details person. Joshua was terrific with getting back to me ASAP. He was quick to find me an answer to whatever I shot his way. The same goes for Jamie, she was top notch and both were so accommodating. It was refreshing to have such a smooth flow to this transaction. At one point we had a time crunch due to my schedule and they made it happen. I will definitely give them business again. They saved me thousands of dollars on my order compared to other quotes I was given. Thanks MCRL!”
