WHERE IT BEGAN

We are Ray and Julie, husband and wife team and owners of Swifty Print. Having run a successful industrial cleaning supplies, safety wear, print and embroidery company back in the UK, for over 17 years, we decided that we didn’t want to spend our time in a country where it always seems to be raining, so we sold our business and headed for the four seasons that Southern Ontario has to offer. It didn’t take long to realise that not all the seasons are created equal in length here and that our least favourite, winter, is the longest. Apart from that, we love living here and wouldn’t dream of leaving now.  Canada is our home.

When we first came to Canada in 2010, we wanted to have a complete change in business direction and after a period of buying a house, settling in and learning how to drive on the other side of the road, we set up a cleaning business.

We quickly had some great staff members and lots of customers and everything was going great, but our hearts just weren’t in it. They say that you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone – and that was certainly true in this case as after months of soul-searching, we realised that we missed the print industry. Luckily, we were able to get it back and, so after a few months planning, we hung up our mops and Swifty Print became our new reality in January 2014. Since then we haven’t looked back, our passion is well and truly re-ignited.

Ray and his team have been more than accommodating when it comes to servicing our needs. Whether a large order or small, his level of service and knowledge of the printing and design industry is more than satisfying. I have been very happy with my products and recommend using him.
