Business luncheon features E.R. Perry Signs & Engraving

Elizabeth Perry, owner of E.R. Perry Signs & Engraving LLC  
in Grand Marais, may be Cook County's least-known business success.
 From her shop and production facility, Perry and her employees 
prepare a wide array of printed and engraved tags, signs and other 
products for clients across the country. They sell those products 
online, primarily, and ship via UPS, FedEx and the U.S. Postal Service 
– all from Grand Marais!
Perry will tell her story and talk about how she accomplishes all of 
this at Cook County Higher Education's April Business Networking 
Luncheon. The luncheon will begin at 11:30 a.m. and conclude by 1 p.m. 
on Wednesday, April 24, at The Pie Place Restaurant, 207 Wisconsin St. 
in Grand Marais.
Perry describes her talk as “a presentation by a local small cottage 
industry that brings in money from across North America utilizing the 
Internet and UPS shipping. No tourists or good weather required. A 
brief tale of the trials and tribulations of making a small job shop 
big. Elizabeth Perry will speak about her 39 years in the sign 
business and how her experience with the Internet can work for many 
small businesses located as far out as Cook County.”
