“Fast, friendly service with an easy to use website. We had an urgent print job and our printer wasn't working. Linda turned the job around in under an hour! We only needed normal documents of the kind you would usually print at work/home but we were very impressed at the high quality print/paper used too - a nice touch and good value for money. I especially liked how you can simply upload your job to their website, then they send you email confirmation when the job is complete. Fantastic service! Metro Repro is well-located close to the city centre (two minute walk from city library, Northumberland St. etc.) but there is also parking nearby if you need to drive there. Highly recommended!”
“Excellent printing service! Great quality print for a really decent price. The fact that they print for you while you wait is really great and comes in handy when you are in a pinch over deadlines. They have saved my life more than once! Lovely staff who are kind, friendly and do whatever they can to help you out. Wonderful customer service! I would highly recommend everyone come here for your printing needs! 10/10 Great service!”
“Fantastic service and quality of print, I have worked in the design industry for twenty years and yet to find a better or more friendly printer. They printed my portfolio for me and made it look incredible. Massive thanks to the team for their patience and expertise. Would highly recommend them, especially for their quick turn around time and the excellent quality. Thanks again for your amazing work.”
“These guys did a great job of printing out double sided and binding my Microsoft Word 10 draft novels using a black plastic binder and transparent covers. They lent me a memory stick to transfer my files to them. The prices for each job was very reasonable and the job was done while I waited in the Flat Cap Cafe round the corner - several times for several different books. I will definitely use their services again. Very impressed.”
“Have been using Metro Repro for over 3 years and I will never go anywhere else. The print quality is always perfect, and I can't believe how quick they are at everything. They are always so helpful, they always go the extra mile and I can't thank them enough for everything. Would recommend to anyone!”
