Nestled in the Alberta badlands, tucked away in the beautiful town of Drumheller, you’ll find a little green building.
When asked, most people will tell you, “Oh, that used to be the old Consortium.” It’s easy to miss if you’re driving by, hiding in the shade of some trees, and it doesn’t look like much—you might even think it’s abandoned. But inside those walls of weathered, green stucco, you’ll find a print shop: Big Country Graphics and Printing.
This unassuming little building is owned by Ed Lehn, known to some as the owner of the New and Used Superstore, to others as a landlord of several rental properties. Ed has a long history of sales and business. In 2013, he bought a number of printers, gadgets, and doodads at a local auction. With these machines, he decided to break into the printing industry, opening his shop early in 2014. Thus, Big Country Graphics and Printing was born.
The shop has grown a lot in the following years. Not in size, obviously. The building is just as small, weird, and green as ever. But the capabilities of the machines and the staff have grown and evolved with each new project. They’ve toughed it out through a difficult economy to see their shop take flight. Each new staff member brings an invaluable skill set and an eagerness to learn. Together, they’ve grown Big Country Graphics from its humble beginnings, to the only place you’ll ever need to go for printing in the Drumheller area. Don’t let the exterior fool you—from business cards and NCR copy forms, to screen printed and embroidered apparel, the experts at Big Country Graphics can do it all.
So the next time you need something printed—anything at all—just remember: Nestled in the Alberta badlands, tucked away in the beautiful town of Drumheller, you’ll find a little green gem, called Big Country Graphics and Printing.
