With almost 30 years in the industry, Gordon Co-founded North America Graphics so that he could continue serving clients who care about printing and can benefit from his expertise. In 1988, Gordon began working at an engraving company in Brockville Ont. After a few short years he worked his way up to Plant Manager of that facility. He remained in that position for 10 years before purchasing the engraving operation.

During this time he developed a simple philosophy:

  • Customers always come first.
  • Printing is still a craft and needs to be treated as such. The more detailed the better.
  • Customers should not worry about the prepress tools when they enter your facility.

Gordon reviews every project to ensure that your jobs will look great and be as efficient as possible on your press. He knows everything about the prepress area and adjusts accordingly to the customer’s needs. Gordon is a great resource for ideas about special print processes and has been involved in R&D for the Gravure industry.

Gordon has a reputation for being particular. He crosses every T and dots every “i” so clients don’t have to worry about the details. He is responsive and involved, and he has respect in the printing industry.

Gordon resides in Brockville, Ont. with his wife and 2 teenage daughters.

Kevin Gardner


Kevin received the best possible education for a future in Technical / Sales positions — one that was hands-on and very thorough. Starting over 25 years ago when Kevin worked at Graphic Packaging Inc. while obtaining his Printing Management Degree, Kevin has worked his way through every department in a print shop including being out on the shop floor, estimating, prepress, on press, finishing, shipping, and customer service. This gave him the knowledge and experience to manage all aspects of printing and the understanding of what makes a high-quality finished product.

Understanding printing inside and out — as a craft and a business — combined with staying current with the latest techniques and ever-evolving technology, makes Kevin a valuable asset in planning, supervising, and managing your print projects.

In 2009 utilizing his expertise led him to partner to start North America Graphics a premier gravure engraving company.

In addition to working with clients on their print needs, Kevin looks forward to managing your prepress needs.
Kevin resides in Syracuse NY with his wife, daughter, and twin boys.
