Who We Are

We are in the business of providing creative expressions that help you visually engage your ideas, messages, environments or events. We do this by helping you connect with your audience with our innovative, portable, modular displays and exhibit solutions.

What We Think

We think we can always do better and what we have learned is just our next starting point. We let our imaginations run wild and never limit ourselves to what we can do. We believe that once you invest your business with us we have the experience and resources to exceed your expectations.

How We Work

We work with you, that is our philosophy. Whether you are on a time crunch and need a banner printed yesterday or are in need of a killer design for your trade show booth exhibit we can make it happen. Our flexibility and customer service oriented approach turn first time clients into long term partnerships.

What We Do

Every day presents a new challenge, and that is why we love what we do. When you look around our production area, we may be staging a 30 foot display, fitting graphics to one hundred banner stands, or flame edging an acrylic mural. We continue to develop with the changing industry and pride ourselves in staying current. Creative challenges are what we get up in the morning for, so put us to work for you!

MEET THE TEAM

Paul Zago
President
519.648.2234 ex 225

Paul’s been in business for over 30 years and doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon. With a background in photography, Paul’s eye for detail is incredibly sharp; whether he’s perfecting a delicious cod cake or developing a unique solution for a client, no detail is left behind! When he’s not answering calls, developing new products, or saving the day one display at a time, Paul can be found strategizing in a game of bridge or killing it on the tennis courts.

Ryan Sibley
Production Manager
519.648.2234 ex 227

Ryan, the guy who knows how to do everything. This ten year vet, with a graphic design background, pretty much bleeds ink. From sales to production, Ryan has done it all and is a vital piece of what Lumichrom is today. A compulsive list maker who multi tasks like nobody’s business (mostly likely due to his Eagle Scout training) Ryan tackles creative challenges with ease and confidence. In his free time Ryan enjoys playing softball and taking part in some wicked calisthenics.

Patrick Bodnar
Senior Production Designer
519.648.2234 ex. 222

With a fine arts background Patrick eats and sleeps design. After establishing his own clothing line, he came to Lumichrom and settled nicely into a position where he creates on the daily. He may salt his cantaloupe and eat onion sandwiches, but he’s a Photoshop wizard and does some seriously cool work with the latex printer. As a self-proclaimed fantasy hockey king and avid board gamer, Patrick is a strategic thinker who puts clients creative ideas into action.

Ean Kools
Production Artist
519.648.2234 EX 235

Ean is an uber-creative designer who loves a challenge and pushing the boundaries of the print industry. Whether it’s researching products to find the best solution or printing on a layer of common materials to produce a distinctly uncommon visual effect, he goes all out for Lumichrom clients. A talented graffiti and mural artist with his own studio in Hespeler, Ean works with artists from all over North America. It’s a mystery to us how he has time to find a different hat to wear every day.

Virginia Tremaine
Production Coordinator
519.648.2234 EX 223

In a role where “I need this yesterday!” is a daily occurrence Virginia capably manages rush orders without resorting to time travel. She’s a skilled communications expert with experience in radio, online web casting, writing, journalism – and now photography. If variety is the spice of life, Virginia’s professional life is well seasoned, working with many of the region’s artists and business people and our graphic design “wizards”. Outside work, she enjoys boxing, baseball and lectures on theoretical physics at the Perimeter Institute.

Kalyn Murray
Pre-press & Print Production
519.648.2234 EX 235

Kalyn has a gift for focus. From setting up files to print, handling colour proofing and matching, prepping wood prints or building a new table for the flatbed printer, he works with total concentration until the job is done. Creativity, diversity, continual learning and the intensity of juggling multiple projects keep it fresh for Kalyn. And while he may not have many opportunities to use his Dutch language skills at work, his skateboarding skills are exercised outside the office on a daily basis.

Anatoliy Struk
Finishing Specialist
519.648.2234 ex 226
Anatoliy is known as the magician. A photography buff, Anatoliy has been with Lumichrom for over 10 years and is the master of installations and finishing. He is dedicated to his craft and has a bank of knowledge the size of his home country. On the side, Anatoliy travels far and wide, snaps photos of ants with his macro lens and rocks a Hawaiian shirt like none other.
