Ever-Reddy Packaging Shutters Operations
TORONTO—Toronto-based Ever-Reddy Packaging (Ever-Reddy Duplicating Service Inc.) has ceased operations after a declaration of bankruptcy was filed on May 19, 2015. 



A notice to that effect is posted at the main entrance of the company’s office at Unit 3 - 480 Tapscott Rd. The trustee appointed is Schwartz Levitsky Feldman Inc., according to the notice.

No one at the company could be reached for comment on the shuttering of the operations or what is to become of the company’s equipment at the location. The company’s website is still operational.

Every-Reddy Packaging started in 1953 and established itself as a reliable supplier to the music industry printing album jackets, having done album jackets for the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Alice Cooper. Some of the work is well known to music lovers. It includes the Rolling Stones’ ‘Sticky Fingers’ album cover with the zipper and the special CD cover for Led Zeppelin IV.

Ever-Reddy Packaging also did packaging work for Heart Industries Ltd., Nafta Foods and Bix Bakery. Services the company provided included design and consultation, pre-press and photo retouching, data management and mailing and fulfillment. It also did direct mail, corporate communications and promotional products.

Changes in the music industry and in the printing industry brought about a change of ownership at the company in 2014 with a renewed focus on providing quality packaging service and work.

Sad to see another player go down. Made a few good pay days courtesy of Ever-Reddy in the late 70's when record albums covers were the only way they packaged vinyl records. They would farm out jobs what they couldn't handle and kept our presses rolling. I also see that J.F. Moore is going out the game also. What a shame.

Wondering why it was never announced that Thistle Printing bought them in 2014?
