Testimonials

  • It is always a pleasure working with the MPS group, whether it is for our twice yearly brochure that is distributed to 900 Program students, a spur of the moment order for posters or a drop-in to ask for information about a project. We never have to worry about delivering our product on time, because MPS always delivers on time. Their response to our initial contact is speedy and on the mark, with a warm reception. This testimonial is a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge the exceptional service we receive, and for our group to say to your group - THANKS FOR ALL THE GREAT WORK YOU DO MPS!!

  • Working with MPS Design Group has been a great experience. They quickly identified and understood our needs. Using their creative and artistic ability, they brought our ideas to life and produced a product that exceeded our expectations. The MPS Design Group successfully redesigned the That’s a Great Idea website, and provided us with a content management system that allows us to not only display our content in a more user friendly and flexible way, but also provide us with the ability to manage our content more effectively and efficiently with many possibilities for the future. Thank you MPS Design Group, for a job well done!

  • I woudl like to send out a kudo to the staff at MPS who intercepted a poster design we submitted and recommended a clearer McMaster logo. Besides all our flyers, our large poster would not have looked good on that scale. Thank you for your careful attention to detail!
