When Don Wik purchased Rocky Mountain Printers in 1973, little did he know that he would still be putting ink on paper 50 years later. A golden anniversary is always special, especially when it’s a local business celebrating their 50th anniversary milestone.
In 2023 Rocky Mountain Printers celebrated their 50th year of doing business in downtown Cranbrook. “We’ve seen a lot of changes in business and in the printing industry in 50 years,” said Don Wik, owner of Rocky Mountain Printers. “We appreciate the opportunity to work with businesses large and small throughout Cranbrook and the Kootenays. We thank them for supporting our locally-based printing company.”
Rocky Mountain Printers is a full-service printing team based in Cranbrook.
