Initially located in the basement of the Sayward Building, the company’s expansion has required several location changes. The business originally focused on map drafting, blue printing services and the sale of drafting supplies.
Now located at the corner of Fort and Quadra Street, Island Blue as it is known today, has transformed into a technologically advanced digital reprographics centre, providing a wide variety of black & white and full colour printing and finishing services. The company’s most recent venture, “Printorium Bookworks”, now offers soft covered book printing to authors and publishers throughout North America. Next door is Island Blue’s “Art Store”, Victoria’s largest supplier of fine artists, graphics and craft supplies. Complementing the “Art Store” is the custom picture framing division. Island Blue offers art classes and workshops, catering to all ages and skill levels.
