PETOSKEY — What began as a printing business set up in the owner’s basement and garage is now celebrating its 50th anniversary.

Mitchell Graphics, located at 2363 Mitchell Park Dr., was founded in 1972 as Little Traverse Printing and was owned by brothers Bill and Andy Fedus. They were eventually able to expand into their own building.

In 1982 Andy separated from the business to run a print shop, Bill changed the name to Mitchell Color Cards and began selling postcards nationwide.

As the Internet became more and more important, Bill’s son Gary took over the business in 2006 and expanded it to provide marketing services in addition to printing. Gary joined the company in 1987 after leaving the hospitality industry.
