What our customers are saying about MCRL Overseas Printing
We have been buying from you for about three years and during all this time your service has been nothing short of excellent.
I have been in business for 40 years and it is rare to find a company like yours that delivers consistent reliable quality and service.
Thank you for all your tireless effort and I look most forward to our business relationship growing from strength to strength.
Thank you again for doing such an amazing job with the book. I don’t have enough good things to say about you and your company, it’s spectacular!
Please hang on to my printing file because it looks like we may have to do another large print run next year.
Our experience with MCRL Overseas has been great!
After reading all the great reviews and getting the best pricing, we chose MCRL Overseas to print our catalogs. We are very impressed and pleased with the quality of the finished product. They have exceed our expectations by quickly supplying excellent proofing (both digital and color proof) only a few days later after we submitted our artwork and delivering our catalogs before the deadline. They are very knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. We will definitely work with MCRL Overseas to print our next catalog!

My family has been working 4 years on a children’s graphic novel; our very first self-published book ever. Everything about creating a book was a mystery. The book itself changed over and over again, but the worries really began when the book was finished. So many questions: how does one find a printer, the paper puzzle: weight and type, we didn’t know where to begin, and are we even going to be able to afford to get it printed, and if we do, can we trust that it will be done correctly and on time? Well, MCRL Overseas Printing answered all our questions, our many many questions, with patience and understanding. When asked for sample paper, a couple of books came within a couple of days to help with our decision. The proofs came just as quickly. The books were shipped right on time and delivered to our door in packaging that kept them undamaged and in perfect condition. When our second book in this series is ready for the printer, we know just where to go.
Thank you so much, Mankit and Karen, for making this experience so easy.

During my 25 years as a graphic designer I have worked with printers throughout southern Ontario and I can say, without reservation, that MCRL Overseas Printing was by far the best experience I have ever had.
I delivered the electronic file of a 152 page perfect bound book with flaps to them and received a hard proof back in 5 days. The proof, in fact, was an exact replica of what the book was going to be. It was a perfect bound book on the stock and with the coatings requested. Because of the quality of the proof I was able to fine-tune the cover and make more than 30 author’s changes. I wasn’t charged for any of that.
The quality was as good or better than what I would expect from a Canadian book printer and it was all done seamlessly.
The books were delivered on time and on budget and at a price which allows us to actually sell the book at a price people will not hesitate to pay. My lowest cost Canadian printer would have increased the retail price of the book by almost $10 and simply made it impossible to sell (given the current economy).
Book publishing will not stop but it will be increasingly important to produce good quality books at a much lower cost. MCRL allowed us to do that.

Our experience with MCRL has been great. This is the first book we have prepared for the printing process ourselves. The MCRL staff were very patient with us, guiding us through each step of the way. We have received very positive feedback about the quality of our book. The colour rendition and paper quality are just what we wanted. Timetables were met on time and the books arrived beautifully protected with double-walled cartons and plastic liners. When we ran into problems with our unusual shipping needs, the sales rep bent over backwards to solve them. We plan to use MCRL again for our next book, because on top of all that, they gave us the best quote.

The professionalism of this company gave me a lot of security to advance the progress of publishing my own book. It has given me new ideas and solutions to enhance quality work in the future. I’ am very pleased to work with MCRL OVERSEAS PRINTING and it would be a pleasure to continue working with such a distinguished company. I would love to recommend any artist that would want to produce their books due to the creativity and patience the company has. I’m honoured to work with Mankit Chan who has worked extremely hard to bring quality to my final project.
We have hired MCRL Overseas Printing to print our wedding brochure for the past four years and every year I am impressed with the quality of the finished product, their ability to meet or exceed deadlines all at a price that is better than anything I can find in North America.
We have printed our brochure annually for the past 14 years and now that we have found MCRL they will be the company we go to in the future and the company I will recommend to anyone with a similar project. Mankit is excellent to deal with and very quick to respond by phone and email.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about our experience with MCRL.
I would highly recommend MCRL Overseas Printing for any overseas printing needs. In looking for a printer for our book, Been There, Done That, Steve Ludzik and I were leery of using an overseas printer. But the staff at MCRL Printing walked us through every step and made us feel comfortable with the process. It took only two days to get a prototype book once we had submitted the draft! The quality and timeliness of our order with them allowed us to meet all of our deadlines. They were also able to give us updates as to exactly when our order was to arrive and special provisions were made to ship our books to their final destination. They were even able to make a last minute adjustment to our manuscript after it was submitted.
The printing costs were almost half of what we were originally going to pay, but the most important thing for us was the fact that the quality was top notch.
We will not hesitate to use them again for all our printing needs.

I found MCRL in 2007 when I wrote my first book. We had tight deadlines to meet our book launch and Mankit handled everything. He would personally call me and walk me through the delivery process. We made our deadline because he and the MCRL team took my project on like it was theirs. Now we are going into the third edition and I credit much of this to the quality of production of MCRL! I source other products now through MCRL because I know they can make anything happen. They are the most dependable suppliers I have ever found. They make my life and work easy.

“I can’t say enough great things about MCRL Printing. They have consistently exceeded our expectations on every aspect of the printing process, from pricing, supplying excellent proofing and the quality of the finished product. MCRL has worked closely with us to ensure the uniqueness of our product meets our satisfaction as well as going the extra mile to help us get our books in time for an important show. We have used their services multiple times and plan to continue engaging their services as our product line grows.”
As a small publisher, specializing in a niche market, I initially went to MCRL in order to reduce costs. Several books later I still use MCRL, and its principal Mankit Chan, because of the quality product they deliver and the great customer service they have provided. Mankit has saved me from several embarrassing errors, resulting in better books and considerable cost savings. Perhaps the best testimonial I can offer is that I have recommended MCRL to two of my friends and both of them have been extremely satisfied with the books produced on their behalf.
As for a testimonial, I shall provide one gladly since we were most gratified by your personal attention to our order, amazingly prompt production and shipment, and quality of the finished product. Our clients were likewise impressed. The local Chapters Manager exclaimed upon seeing “OTTAWA – the Golden Years” that it was “beautiful, and so professional”. Others have described the quality as “stunning”, “remarkable” and “exquisite”, several saying it was the “most beautiful book” they had seen. It doesn’t get much better than that. I’m sure the reaction to the “Star Weekly at War” will be no less favourable and I shall have no hesitation in giving MCRL full credit for a “job well done”. The quality was well above my expectations, and the price well below!
Aside from all that, it gives me personal satisfaction to do business with China. My father’s sister and her husband (from the village of Sherbrooke, N.S.) spent their careers in Honan Province as medical missionaries in charge of a hospital in Wei Wei, which I think was on the Yellow River, and had 5 boys born and brought up there, all speaking fluent Mandarin. Eventually, all the boys left for university in Canada. I dedicated the SWAW to one of the boys, Harvey, who was killed while serving in the Canadian Forces in WWII.
With this being our first book to have printed in China we were very concerned over the quality. From start to finish, Mankit Chan was most helpful and understanding of our concerns. The quality of the printing and assembly was A-one and especially the photo quality was outstanding. Our book was on auto racing from the 1930s through 1950 and contains over 400 black and white photos. We have received nothing but raves over the quality of the photos. Every step of the process was completed at the specified time and the books arrived at our door at the scheduled time. We will be doing other books in the future and will not hesitate to have them printed by MCRL.
I’ve been very pleased with every aspect of dealing with MCRL. The quality of the finished products is exceptional, communication is ongoing and timely throughout the various stages of an order and the staff are very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process. And all this at a very competitive price. I highly recommend MCRL.

We have used Mankit and MCRL to produce a number of catalogs for our company. The quality and service is excellent, making you think the factory was next door. Only the pricing reminds you that the catalogs are produced overseas.
“I’ve worked with a lot of printers for our comics and graphic novels over the years, but I’ve stuck with MCRL Printing because they are outstanding in terms of quality and price. They have never missed a deadline with me and I am very happy with their work.”
Kidproof Canada/USA publishes several different safety books and handbooks for retail each year. This year, we have chosen MCRL to print our publications overseas. We are very pleased with the result. Besides the high quality and competitive pricing, the care and responsiveness with which all details were handled is outstanding…..
MRCL is our primary printer for both hard and soft copy books. Their level of quality and service is exceptional. They are proactive in resolving issues and produce on-time results. I highly recommend this company for your large scale printing needs.

I am very happy with MCRL Overseas Printing. “The Shatner Show” book was our first venture into publishing and printing it in China was the only way we could afford to get it done. MCRL was very good at explaining the process and keeping me informed. I am pleased with the results and look forward to working with MCRL again.
“We were pleased with MCRL’s service, efficiency and exceptional quality. MCRL’s product was cost-effective, reducing our printing cost substantially and generating even greater savings by offering the flexibility to ship directly to our consultants worldwide rather than us having to incur the shipment costs from Canada .”
After a world wide search for a printing company, I chose MCRL Printing. Aside from having the best price, the quality of their work was stellar through the entire process. At the beginning of the project they were helpful, patient, and knowledgeable. In the production phase they provided expert advice and kept me informed on progress. After completion, not only did they arrange shipping to my door, they went through extra effort to ensure I had stock to sell for a big event that was rapidly approaching. They were just fantastic.
When choosing any vendor or supplier I evaluate three things: price, quality and working relationship. MCRL excels at all three. I will use them again for all my future printing needs.

Having our project done by MCRL was a great experience in overseas printing. It being our first overseas job was intimidating as we did not know what to expect and had heard horror stories of projects gone terribly awry. This was not the case with MCRL. We discovered their website while researching foreign printers, and were relieved upon learning they have a Canadian office. Their local representative was extremely accommodating, even traveling directly to our office. Communication was always open and transparent, and the proofing process was quick and to our specifications ¨C which were quite detailed as we stipulated the job had to be done using Eco-friendly processes and materials. Changes were done expeditiously, and the final product arrived to our door on schedule. We were extremely pleased, both with the process and the beautifully printed result.
We are now happy to have MCRL as our overseas supplier, and look forward to more jobs in the future.

I worked with MCRL to print my first children’s hard cover picture book. Some specifications which I needed rendered: had bold, bright, sharp illustrations, a panorama pull-out and Japanese script. The result was exactly what I envisioned. I initially chose MCRL because the price was very competitive. But, I discovered that the service from their Canadian broker was outstanding as well. There were many timely follow ups, clarifications, a lot of useful advice. The samples were quick to come and ended up being an exact indication of what I would receive in bulk. I have had nothing, but compliments on the quality of my book. I was delighted with the result. For more information, the broker can be contacted for my email and I would be happy to help with your similar project.
“I cannot stress how pleased I was with the books I received from MCRL. They were done exactly how I had hoped in every detail. MCRL was knowledgeable and patient and the result was MANY boxes of books that I am more than proud to have my name on. Thanks.”
