Meet Our Team
Owner and President of Arnold Printed Communications, Craig has worked for the company for over 38 years. Craig's father started the company in 1962 and Craig began working in the family business in high school, going on customer calls with his father.
Craig learned the business from the ground up, working in manufacturing plants to gain hands on experience with offset and flexo (label) production. He says this early experience helped him to understand and visualize customer production solutions, while developing skills for fast analysis and correction to remedy those rare customer production problems.
Craig has been involved with the Lancaster Sertoma Club for over 30 years, raising money to support and improve Long's Park, at-risk kids camp and hearing testing. During his 30 years with Sertoma, the organization has raised $2.4 million to help the community and support projects including the Longs Park Amphitheater and the founding of the Amphitheater Foundation, which now operates as an independent organization. Craig has three grown sons and an immature basset hound named Mildred.
