About Taca

Taca was purchased by Laird in December 2008.

Taca was a BC based company, offering sign supplies and services throughout Canada.

Since 1984, Taca offered a wide range of products and supplies to the sign making industry, including hardware (cutters, printers, etc), software and signmaking supplies.

We were, and are,  commited to providing friendly, enthusiastic service, helping our clients grow their businesses. You won't find a lot of hype and insubstantial, confusing misdirection. We take pride in providing realistic, honest, and helpful support to our customers because we want your business for many years to come! Laird and Taca should be YOUR primary supplier for many reasons, including:

  • An excellent selection of supplies, including premium MDO signboards and the widest selection of stocked 15" thru 60" vinyl log rolls; 
  • Taca can custom slit vinyl rolls; this means we have what you need, when you need it; 
  • We can custom cut with extreme accuracy, hard substrates using our computerized saw;
  • We go to great effort to understand each client's needs, so that we can get you what YOU NEED to grow your business, not what someone ELSE thinks you should have. It may be a used piece of equipment, or the latest wide-format solvent printer, but above all else your current needs have to be filled. After all, it's your investment, both in time and money. 
  • Local management, actively working in the company. This leads to high levels of enthusiasm, knowledge and training. We can respond fast and effectively to needs and requirements as they come up.
We give you the BEST VALUE combination of price and service; we're here to serve you!

Our goal is to provide you with the products you need, when you need them.  We become valuable partners in business, with our clients, providing all the information they need to get the right information, and the right products, to maximize their growth potential.  In this rapidly moving, complex economy, having a supplier that acts in your best interest, is a competitive advantage.  No other supplier offers the same quality mix of informed, educated and motivated staff backed with such a large and comprehensive plastics distribution network.
