Porcupine Advance Printers is locally owned and operated and has been providing quality printing and related services to our community since 1912.


“The Porcupine Advance” was the Porcupine Camp’s first weekly newspaper in the early 1900’s and later became Timmins’ first full service custom printer. “The Porcupine Advance” newspaper articles have since been donated to the Timmins Museum to ensure our rich history can be preserved and shared with generations to come.


Through its 4 generations, our business has been passed down family member to family member with the promise to offer only the best possible service to our valued customers. Our technology has advanced to meet their needs. Our customers are the cornerstone of our business and the key to our longevity in the printing industry.


Today, 100 years later, we are a full service, professional printing company offering a wide range of business and personal printed products including full colour printing, graphic design and bindery services. We currently operate with a full time staff of professionals. Our art department houses industry specific artists and our qualified press operators are trained directly by Heidelberg. Our accounting department houses a certified controller and our sales team is very knowledgeable and always eager to help.


We maintain our hometown pride and firmly believe that quality printing, reasonable rates and customer satisfaction are our key products.
