Unrivaled Print Quality

You want your presentation to leave a big impact. We want that too. TR Trades has a range of options for presentation boards of all kinds, whether indoor or outdoor, short or long term use. If you’re not sure what might be best for you, give us a call and we can go over your requirements and recommend what will be best for you.

Indoor Architectural or other Presentation Boards:

For high end reproduction of photos or building renderings, our inkjet printers are your best bet. With an optimized dpi system and 8-colour ink system, the sharp details and vibrant quality will grab people’s attention the way your work should.

#1 Presentation Media of choice – SATIN

Our satin photolustre paper is a photographic media preferred by architects in Vancouver for over a decade. Its semigloss finish uses a special coating that reduces ink spread, resulting in the sharpest possible thin lineweights and bright colours.

#2 Presentation Media of choice – HEAVY BOND

If you’re looking for a high quality matte paper, look no further than our 48 lb heavyweight bond. Its matte finish eliminates glare that may be caused by bright overhead lights, and it has a fantastic white point for colour, so your images will display beautifully


We have a wide range of substrates for mounting your prints, perfect for any purpose. For a full list with pictures, see our indoor mounting chart.

#1 Presentation Board Choice – 3/16″ MIGHTYCORE

Our 3/16″ Mightycore is preferred by our clients because of its lightweight rigid composition. It has a dense polystyrene core which resists temperature and humidity changes much better than standard foam products, reducing bowing and warping over time.

#2 Presentation Board Choice – ENVIROMOUNT 

A more environmentally-friendly option is our Enviromount substrate. With ¼” and ½” options in both white or brown, it is more commonly being used as a sustainable alternative as it is produced from recycled material and is biodegradable in landfills.


Lamination is a great way to protect the face of your presentation board from bumps and scratches during transportation. We have matte, gloss, or anti-graffiti lamination options available. If you need your prints to be weather-resistant, consider our outdoor mounting options.

Senior Account Manager

McKenzie joined the TR team with a solid foundation of experience in the print industry. His career began in production, where he developed his skills in maintenance, operations and finishing. Quickly recognized for his talent, initiative and charisma, McKenzie was promoted to Production Lead. At the helm of the production team, he proved a natural leader and infected the team with his positivity and work ethic.

After building his knowledge leading the production team, McKenzie progressed into the Sales department, honing his sales skills under the leadership of Carla Duncan and TR’s customer focused approach. His natural penchant for customer service and dedication to quality assurance proved an ideal fit for the TR sales team where McKenzie now functions as Account Manager.

Never one to rest on his laurels, McKenzie enhanced his knowledge with sales courses at BCIT and can regularly be seen applying his skills throughout the shop.

“Bruce has always provided excellent customer service.”
InterCAD Services Ltd.


CAD & eProject Manager

When you meet Bruce you automatically know he is a seasoned professional in the reprographics industry. Starting out as a driver for Hughes Owens Printing in 1978, he eventually transitioned to Trimen Blueprinting where he acted as a reprographics technician for 13 years. With the onset of the digital era in 2000, TR Trades hired Bruce as CAD Manager. Since then he has been an invaluable asset to the company and anyone who has questions regarding CAD plotting. When Bruce is not overseeing others in the CAD department, he spends countless hours troubleshooting client issues, unearthing customer print errors, and providing eProject software support. He is regularly looked to for printing advice by both coworkers and clients.

Bruce is also well versed in troubleshooting onsite issues and participating in client presentations, having assisted Carla and TR sales staff in many client meetings. If you’re looking for a history lesson on the print industry or if you want to optimize your drawings for print, you’ll want to call on Bruce. Many may not know, but Bruce is a musician at heart! He originally studied engineering and math, eventually realizing it was not the career path he wished to pursue. Following this, Bruce went on to complete both a music program and a piano technician program through Douglas College. During his spare time, you’ll find him creating music or acting as a vocalist in several bands. When he is not playing the guitar and recording music, you can find Bruce tinkering around on one of his computers or watching hockey.
