Copriso provides a complete solution for printing services and products, including office stationery, brochures and business forms. It is a Colorado-based, home-based business. Copriso was known as ePrint, Inc. during the past five-years under Adam Suson’s sole ownership. Adam joined the Sir Speedy franchise his father had created in 1972. From 1983 to 1996 Adam managed the scheduling, procurement and press operations for Sir Speedy. Adam, a freelance printing consultant, became an independent printer when the family decided to sell the franchise many years ago.
