Do you believe in Miracles?
Steve Driediger does.
And so do his customers.
In fact, from Day 1 a decade ago, Driediger staked his company's reputation by christening it Miracle Print.

“Our business does miracles in terms of being able to imprint difficult or unusual items that baffle screen printers and other technologies in Alberta’s print industry – and we can do it quickly,” the president of Miracle Print says in reference to his company's sparkling track record in specialized pad printing.
Since 1993, Driediger and his team have been creating miracles in print, making believers out of customers. Just the other day, Miracle Print performed miraculously for Calgary-based Precision Drilling.
Unhappy with several consecutive orders of hardhats printed by the manufacturer, Precision contracted Miracle Print to print its recent order.
“Our customer, Cam McArthur from Commercial Bearing, brought his client, Cheryl Zaick of Precision Drilling, right to our facility,” says Driediger.
“They were able to examine first-hand a first print of Precision’s new Target Zero logo on the hardhats.
“Cheryl was thrilled with the quality and authorized us to proceed. Now, the project is complete and, of course, the same quality that she approved has been duplicated on every single hat.
“If you’ve got an emergency, we can work a miracle.”
The name says it all.
Since Miracle Print began operations, the company's client list has grown to include manufacturers, the safety supply industry, injection moulders, promotion product distributors and golf pros, to mention a few. Miracle Print uses highly adaptive machines to print customers’ products with their required decorative artwork and logos. There aren’t many products that don't have the Miracle Print stamp on them. The organization has printed on items such as golf balls, CD players, cameras, stress balls and even high heels.
Yes. High heels.
“Yes, we’ve even done unusual items like logos for the heels of high, spiky women’s dress shoes made of acrylic,” quips Driediger, who gets a real kick out of pulling off the toughest of jobs.
“A lot of customers have said they simply didn't know that this kind of printing could be done in Calgary.”
Driediger is a seasoned pro at the pad printing game, with 18 years of experience.
“There are very few products that will baffle us,” says Driediger. “Our experience and the state-of-the-art equipment enable us to overcome virtually any challenge.”
The company has printed on a vast array of products, but is not a supplier of promotional products. The only imprinted product Miracle Print supplies is the Wilson® line of golf balls.
Industrial assignments span numerous types of products, including injection moulders and products used by electronics companies that manufacture global positioning systems (GPS) or hazardous gas systems.
“For example, with injection moulded parts or powder-coated metal products that are used as face plates in electronics equipment, we can take the company’s logo or specific instructional markings they want on their products and put it on with an ink that will bond permanently to it,” explains Driediger. “It’ll be attractive, very sharp and very durable.
“Because we’re a local company, we can do all of the artwork and design work here in-house and we can produce a product very quickly.”
If you have a part that requires decoration with a logo or instructions for use, Miracle Print prides itself in completing the process quickly and efficiently with highly adaptive machines. The process begins with the creation of high-quality art. Then, the company shoots a printing plate and transfers ink from that plate to the product with a soft silicone printing pad.
Because of the shape and flexibility of the pad, it will conform to the contour of the product, leaving behind a sharp and durable image.
“Because of the softness of the pad, it can conform to all kinds of different shapes and textures so we're not limited to printing on flat objects,” says Driediger. “We can print on simple curves on coffee mugs or compound curves on golf balls.”
Miracle Print utilizes large rotary presses that are designed to wrap around cylinders and can print on shapes including bottles, plates and flat products.
If your company requires graphic art, Miracle Print boasts talented artist Heather Free and is up to date on all major graphics software. Most of the graphic work is done with logo duplication or design and an extensive library of corporate logos is available for a small fee.
