The Secret Life of E.R. Perry at April Business Networking Luncheon

Staff reports


Betsy Perry Betsy Perry 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.”

To register for this presentation (formerly known as the Women’s Business Network Luncheon) by one of Cook County’s outstanding business leaders, e-mail jboyd@northshorecampus.org or call 218-387-3411. Cost for the luncheon is $15.
