If your sponsorship level includes promotional material in the conference registration packs, you may opt to print your materials locally in Ottawa and avoid shipping chargers. We have used and recommend Staples for this purpose. They have an online Copy and Print Center which we use for our our materials. By arrangement, we can pick up your printing prior to the conference and invoice you for the printing. Staples does not accept online payment for this service. We use this Staples location:
Staples Ottawa Core
The University of Ottawa also has a print center which is very close to the conference venue.
