One of my favourite things about being the co-owner of Tradebank Simcoe is that I get to regularly meet with fellow Tradebank members and learn about their businesses. Our members include major chains, sports teams, professionals, trades people, small businesses, consultants, health care providers and so many more - all building their bottom line through barter. I’ve decided to spotlight one of our amazing members in my blog every few weeks.
For our very first Tradebank Simcoe Member Profile, I’ve selected Jean-Marc Auger, the owner of Quality Print in Barrie.
Quality Print has been in business for almost half a century and has been a Tradebank member since 2006. A second generation, family owned and operated Canadian company, Quality Print consistently exceeds the expectations of their customers, employees and ownership by ensuring a commitment to excellence through continuous improvement and innovation.
Jean-Marc and his amazing team have remained successful by advancing with modern technology all the while maintaining the “small town” manners and service their loyal customers come to expect.
Over the past decade, Jean-Marc has provided commercial printing services to dozens of Tradebank members. Fellow member Jaz Patel from Kings Inn Midland had this to say about the work he receives on trade:
"Their quality of printing is in the name of their business "Quality Print", they are always very responsive to our needs!"
Jean-Marc’s company consistently provides Tradebank members with high quality commercial printing products including signs, banners, catalogs, rack cards, menus, billboards, flyers, stickers, and magnets. Quality Print operates with great concern for the environment, working with all vegetable based inks, have a process that eliminates the use of harmful chemicals, actively recycling cartridges & paper, and focussing on reduced energy consumption.
Of course, barter is a two-way street, so how does Jean-Marc like to spend his hard-earned Trade Dollars? Well, for one, he loves to dine at the many restaurants who are Tradebank members!
“The restaurants are awesome! Whether it is trying a restaurant for the first time, or visiting an old favourite, being able to eat on trade is great.”
With restaurants like Malone’s Pint House, Crock & Block, the North and Groovy Tuesday’s, Jean-Marc has many options to choose from in Barrie when he’s hungry to spend Trade Dollars. Jean-Marc also loves that barter provides a unique taxable benefit for the Quality Print team that non-members can’t offer.
