FREMONT COUNTY, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -

 Businesses are still feeling the effects of the overall energy industry decline, and this small shop is hopeful that regulations will change soon, and that the energy industry increases across the state to get people back to work, and also help the struggling businesses surrounding them.

The Print Shop in Riverton has been in business for 13 years, and since the shutdowns across the state, like most small businesses they are still trying to rebound.

“We need to get these regulations off our backs, and we need to make sure that we are doing everything we can to keep our mineral industry going, in not just Fremont county, but the state of Wyoming,” stated Fremont County Commission Chairman Travis Becker.

Becker, who is also co-owner of the Print Shop, is very happy the Moneta Divide project was approved by the BLM, and is now onto the DEQ (Wyoming Department of Enviornment Quality) for approval. The project which is 13 years in the making, would allow for over 4000 wells to be drilled over the next several decades

“From the county commission side, we’ve been working on this darn near 10 years, so it’s been a process. There’s been a lot of hurdles to go through,” emphasized Becker.

Through it all, the Print Shop is staying positive that business will pick up, and the energy industry will increase across all of Wyoming. Meanwhile, if anyone needs fliers, Christmas cards, business cards, letter head, envelopes, stamps, or just about anything printed, Print Shop owners Travis and Eyvette Becker are delighted to serve the community.

The Print Shop has changed its hours recently, so check before you stop in. They offer office supplies, color printing, a public fax machine, art layout, business forms, and even a notary service.
