For twenty-nine years Ernie Olson managed Barrett
Transport's printing shop. When Barrett sold out, Ernie
and LeeRoy Brown, his co-worker of ten years decided it
was time to go out on their own, They bought the
equipment they started out with from Barrett, found a
building "not too big and not too small' and their
adventure into the world of small business ownership
Since 1999, Ernie and LeeRoy have watched as their
business has grown to match tile needs of their growing
customer base. They also have a sign shop in back that
produces and provides signage for everything from
banners and build-lng signs to magnetic signs and bumper
stickers. Jeremy Griffith, known as 'Tiny', manages and
operates Copy Kat's Sign Shop.
Ernie Olson, a native of the Fargo/Moorhead area grew up
in Fargo and went to Fargo High. not to be mistaken with
Fargo "south or "north', Fargo High was originally
located across from the Cass County Court House.
As a young man he worked with his Grandfather in
construction for a while, then after graduating from
high school, Ernie enrolled in a post high school
vocational school called "Interstate Duplicating
Service". The world of print has certainly changed and
come a long way since those days and Ernie and LeeRoy
have been a part of it every step of the way. LeeRoy
co-owner of Copy Kat Printing is a native Minnesotan.
Graduating from Hendrum High School, LeeRoy took his
time deciding what he
eventually wanted to devote the majority of his life to.
After working with Ernie at Barrett's Transport for ten
years, the duo master printers
knew they were a team, so together they forged ahead to
become a mainstay in the Moorhead business community.
LeeRoy Brown is one of Fargo-Moorhead's "still to be
caught" (again) bachelors with two children. Father to
one daughter and one son. Ernie Olson is 'forever"
married to wife Gloria. together they have three sons
and three grand--children.
