Metro Reprographics started in the blueprint industry in 1987 as Metro Blueprint Supply Corporation, and earned a solid reputation for reliable service among architects, engineers and construction personnel.
Coming under new management in 2001, the company diversified into color printing, focusing on large-format projects: signage, vehicle advertising, ATM machine branding, and other applications where color, large size and diversity of material are key.
Today the company continues to focus on “digital color on media,” taking on complex and highly specialized projects. They also place large-format printers at customer sites as well as sell large-format equipment. Metro is an approved reseller for Canon and KIP, the two most respected names in large-format color printing.
Metro is made of up people—a team that’s been together almost as long as the company has been in existence. The people of Metro love to serve. They excel at putting the personal touch on every job, every order, every project.
As the customer service and AR/AP representative at Metro for over 15 years, Janet is good at what she does. So good, in fact, that she has earned the title “Queen of Metro” by Metro customers. If you ask her about the most rewarding part of her job she will tell you, “I love my customers!”
In addition to volunteering in the community, Janet enjoys photography, reading, paper crafts and cooking. But she is most passionate about her family, her friends and the Carolina Panthers.
