Epic Color is a growing division of A/E Graphics, Inc. which was originally founded in Brookfield, Wisconsin as a division of Green Bay Blue Print Company which goes back nearly a century.


Max Schober 


Marjorie and Guy Lam

The original owner was Max Schober of Berners-Schober in Green Bay where he became a partner in 1906. Guy and Marjorie Lam later ran the Brookfield division until Fred Gennerman and Mel Kirsch acquired and renamed it A/E Graphics, Inc. in 1976.


The Lams, Fred and Mel had a basis of hard work, quality results and great customer service.

Always looking to the future, Fred and Mel helped to adapt their roots in blueprinting, photocopying, pin bar registration for drafting and photography into a digital document and color graphics company.

In 2001, five employees became owners of A/E Graphics: Tim Davis, Dan Schmidt, Joe Shaw, John Sieber and Tom Taubenheim. Recognized as professional, reliable, devoted and passionate team members from the get go, it was natural that the leadership roles would pass on to the five. These guys have each put in more than 20 years at A/E Graphics.


John Sieber

Retires in 2016 

Through the 2000’s, Tim, Dan, Joe, John and Tom launched new innovations in digital printing, scanning and online document management. In 2009, they opened Epic Color which evolved from growing demands for custom signs and displays. Epic Color is run with the same passion and work ethic as A/E Graphics.

We are a division of A/E Graphics.   Over the years as the print industry continued to change including the way services were offered, a better workflow efficiency was needed. 


In the summer of 2015 a complete remodel of A/E Graphics, Brookfield, Wisconsin building was done.   At this time, A/E Graphics and EPIC Color reside in the same building. 


An alternate branch for A/E Graphics is located in the Third Ward in Milwaukee, Wisconsin - which can easily service the downtown district.     A/E Graphics specializes in map and site plan reproductions, along with being a Canon printer dealer.
