Our History



Lorne Merkur and SisterMerkur & Sister has been providing top-quality, decorated promotional products since 1970. from his parents' basement, Lorne Merkur first screen printed T-Shirts for his Jr. High School Baseball team. What began with a manual press and a few simple inks has evolved over the years to incorporate digital printing, international association memberships, automatic multi-head embroidery, e-commerce and the internet.




Basement production did not last long. We are located in midtown Toronto, our head office and showroom are only minutes away from our primary screen printing and embroidery facility and warehouse-capable of decorating and storing thousands of garments. We are only minutes away from many other GTA production facilities and product distributors-giving us personal control over all orders: regular turnaround or rush.
