VANCOUVER, BC-In the months leading up to the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games, Metropolitan Fine Printers Founder and President George Kallas is bringing home his own gold medal. The veteran printer was recognized on November 12, 2009 as Graphic Monthly Canada magazine's Printer of the Year before several hundred cheering colleagues at a gala industry reception in Toronto.
Graphic Monthly Canada's Printer of the Year Award was created six years ago to celebrate printers who represent the best in the industry. Chosen annually by the magazine's publishers and editors, the award is given to a printer who, in the course of building his or her business, has changed the industry and contributed to the betterment of the graphic arts as a whole.
"I am truly humbled by this award from the industry where I have dedicated my working life," said Kallas when he received news of the win. "All of us know that printing is a team sport. Metropolitan has become the company it is today because of our amazing clients, and the talent and dedication of our technical and sales experts. I have the pleasure of working with, and learning from, them every day. I share this honour with them."
Kallas has been actively involved in the graphic arts industry for more than 30 years. Inspired by his longtime interest in technology and art, in 1977 he founded Metropolitan Fine Printers in Vancouver and began by printing stationery. Three decades later, the company is recognized internationally as one of the world's leading commercial printers.
At last night's Environmental Printing Awards banquet in Toronto, George Kallas, President of Metropolitan Fine Printers, received the honour for their production of the 2009 Western Wildlife Wilderness Calendar.

George Kallas
Not every person would see a future in printing stationery but Metropolitan President and Founder George Kallas has never lacked the imagination or drive to take a great idea and run with it. The company did initially specialize in stationery, however it wasn't long before George's unrelenting commitment to customer service, excellence and ‘dreaming big' put Metropolitan on the international printing map. Metropolitan quickly grew to become an internationally-lauded printer and innovator in printing technology.
As much as George is recognized for Metropolitan's printing accomplishments - he has been ranked numerous times as one of the most influential people in Canada's printing industry -- his community contributions are also legendary. The first printer to be awarded a BC Ethics in Action award, he regularly supports a number of charitable organizations through donations and in-kind services. As a member of the Hellenic Congress of BC, he was also instrumental in raising $500,000 to establish the first North American chair for Modern Hellenic Studies at Simon Fraser University. More recently, he has made a difference to Vancouver's charitable landscape as the local founder of Canstruction, an international charity event aimed at reducing hunger in communities.
