65 Years & Counting

John Roberts is a commercial printing, packaging and marketing services provider located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

In 1951, Robert Keene and John Chelberg left jobs with a Minneapolis printing firm to pursue a dream. They purchased a printing shop that was for sale in Saint Paul, Minnesota and with only two employees and minimal equipment, they founded The John Roberts Company.

Initially the pair wore "all of the hats" and built a solid reputation for customer service and quality work. The company grew steadily. In 1974 more than 100 John Roberts employees moved into a beautiful new facility just 15 minutes north in Coon Rapids, Minnesota. The company has expanded its operations multiple times over the years and now operates a 225,000+ square foot facility.

We now offer commercial printing, packaging and cross-media marketing services that includes everything from web offset, sheetfed offset and digital printing to mailing services, logistics, fulfillment, web-to-print, email marketing, web landing pages and campaign analytics. No project is too large or too small and we provide a customer service experience that makes us ridiculously easy to work with.

Throughout our 65-year history, we have continually invested in industry-leading equipment and technology, and are a long-term leader in environmentally-sustainable business practices and a HIPAA compliant organization offering SOC 2 Client Data Security Assurance.
