Our Story


Over the past 50 years, the initials JG were lovingly carved into the heart of Montréal’s graphic arts community. While its means of delivery have changed in tune with the technological advances that time has brought, its vocation has not: to serve the work of creative professionals. Advertising houses, communications agencies and a myriad of designers have always known where they will find the most up-to-date skills and tools to bring their best and brightest ideas to life.
