About Us

My name is Calvin Plum and I am the owner of Leading Edge Printing Services. I have been in the printing trade since 1985 and have gathered extensive knowledge in all areas.

After three years of schooling in print management, my career began as a reproduction camera operator and I worked on page layout and film assembly for many large publications. Remaining in pre-press I then trained as a scanner operator and enjoyed the challenge of color reproduction. This allowed me to experience and gather great knowledge in all areas of the printing trade. Projects I worked on daily ranged from magazines, coffee table books, to limited edition prints.

After working in both the production and the management aspects of this industry I then opened my first printing company, Optima Printing Inc. Optima Printing was a mid size printing company dealing with digital copying and offset printing in the Calgary region. From eight years ownership of Optima, Leading Edge Printing Services was developed.

Leading Edge Printing Services provides its customers with the best knowledge, experience, and dedication that I have gathered over the past years.
