Havers Design

make ink work for you

We've been putting ink on paper in the Comox Valley since 1985. That's a lot of ink, and a lot of valuable experience we can share with you for your next print project.


A Legacy In Print Production

We've been designing for print long before fax machines and computers were invented. I don't know if that counts for anything but it sure sounds good. A quality designed and printed sales piece, stationary package or presentation folder still has it's place in today's marketing mix. 

As well as designing your print material we can help you decide which print medium is the most cost effective for you; offset (longer runs) or digital printing (short runs). This promotional material can also be used effectively as pdfs suitable for email marketing or for inclusion on your website.

 Services can include:
• Design to print stage
• Copywriting 
• Photography 
• Print budgeting and print coordination

Enough about us, here's what our clients have to say.

I worked with Havers Design for over a decade as the lead firm for Vancouver Island MusicFest. And what a decade it was! Over that period we collaborated on marketing work back schedules, websites, ads, posters, handbooks, printing projects, stickers, full colour festival programs, t-shirts, signage and much more. We did this during a time of rapidly changing technology, media and marketing trends. Neil's creativity, ingenuity, adaptablity, openness and wicked (and often irreverent) sense of humour is unrivaled. He also has some uncanny "psychic designer' abilities which meant he was more often then not one step ahead of me for deadlines and critical drop dead dates. I highly reccomend you spend some time with this guy, at work or at play.
