The rumors have it that Cope Graphics is no more, but Jesse Copenhaver, owner, begs to differ.
With his newer Main St. location between The N’ Thing and Wells Fargo, it’s hard to miss him.
Copenhaver stays busy with his business services, including cards, signs, banners and magnets. Don’t forget that if you have a new business, he can also create a one-of-a-kind logo. He comments, “There isn’t much we don’t do.”
The Holiday’s bring a great opportunity to businesses with combo deals on banners and other essentials, Copenhaver suggests stopping by for your chance to save.
If you aren’t familiar with his work, then keep your eyes peeled for the up and coming “Welcome to Conrad” signs that will be located at both ends of town, one going just across the street from Town Pump. These signs are part of the Main Street Beautification Project.
Conrad High School sports fans can stop in for CHS swag stamped on high quality apparel. Soon to come is a shirt for the hard working moms of the wrestlers that reads:
“I travel Montana, clean the wounds, wash the singlets, smell the fear and feel the pride: I’m a Wrestling Mom.”
Copenhaver can make up almost anything on any article of clothing and would love to work up your custom apparel. He boasts competitive prices and says you can even compare him to the big box giants.
A newer service he is offering is photo reproduction. He has been scanning old photos and reproducing them in what he says is a cutting edge print. He is working in cooperation with others in creating the Pondera County History Book.
Copenhaver works alone in his business but has recently acquired a new set of hands through the Career Mentoring program at CHS.
