John Robinson
John Robinson, the former owner of Artcraft Label Inc., until his retirement in 2012, passed away suddenly on October 23 at the age of 83.

From his son Brad,

"My Dad was a member of the printing industry since he was a teenager working for Gair Graphics, Lawson Mardon and Montreal Litho. He started his own printing company, Gair Graphics, in the early 1980’s and then went on to purchase and operate Artcraft Label in Burlington for almost 30 years until his retirement in 2012. His team at Artcraft was responsible for many advances in the flexo label industry and they won a multitude of international awards along the way. He loved what he did!"
