D. English was started in 1880 by David English who established the company as the destination of choice for the ticketing needs of the sports & entertainment world in North America. The company stayed within the family for decades until it eventually was passed on to new ownership in the 1950’s and again in the 1970’s before finally seeing it’s ownership being taking over by the Meti family in the 2000’s.

English have always been leaders in their domain, having been at the fore-front of many innovations in the ticketing business from the days of letter-press numbering to cutting edge digital barcoding and personalization. The company’s expertise has been a valuable asset to a multitude of professional sports organizations and events over the years, including being the first ticket printers of the Montreal Canadiens, numerous championship events including the Grey Cup, Stanley Cup, Memorial Cup, Vanier Cup, Canadian Open PGA & LPGA, IIHF World Junior Hockey Championships and as the ticket printers of the 1976 Olympics in Montreal.
