Vancouver Island entrepreneurs looking to return to business from the devastation of the pandemic are turning to a locally-created e-commerce site for all their promotional needs.
Award-winning and innovative Nanaimo graphic design and printing powerhouse, Elite Group, has unveiled an easy-to-use, high-quality platform – – where companies can shop online for all their design print and sign products.

This one-of-a-kind portal is only specific to Vancouver Island businesses which will have access to thousands of cutting-edge and affordable design templates to choose from.

The platform is stocked with design products, including business cards, flyers, pamphlets, brochures, envelopes, letterheads, tickets, calendars, greetings cards and labels.

Elite Group founder, Catrina Elliott, said: “Given the amount of devastation businesses have suffered during Covid-19, we quickly saw a need to provide a platform that offers high quality, competitively priced print products.”

The creative innovation was inspired by Ms Elliott who personally witnessed the pandemic’s impact on the local business landscape. “Business owners have already suffered enough during the downturn with so many changes, coupled with operational and staffing issues. On top of that, the cost to rebrand, change and re-print marketing materials can be a substantial investment,” she added.

“The platform has been built with Vancouver Island businesses, no matter their size, to get inspired and help them bounce back in their fight to survive and thrive. When they buy from Print Deals, they will be assured their investments are going directly back into the local economy.”

The Elite Group of Companies includes a host of local design and print businesses such as Elite ImageCoastal Colour Design & PrintingCoastal Die Cut, and its latest acquisition InPrint Graphic Design.

Print Deals further consolidates Elite’s industry leader status built on high-quality, innovative services and products, excellent customer service, and a strong supporter of community development.

Elite Image has previously been named Top 10 Best Company in Small Business BC. Ms Elliott was Winner in the Top 20 Under 40 Business & Community Achievement Award and was previously named Nanaimo’s Entrepreneur of the Year.
