Owning a franchise is a great way to start a new career in business for yourself. We believe that for prospective investors, Signarama is a great choice because of the need for our products, the degree of support we offer our franchisees, and the strength of our brand name. Starting a new business is tempting to many, but there are several hassles and hurdles that often prevent people from taking the next steps. Signarama works to eliminate many of these barriers, making running one of our businesses a fun investment for our franchisees.
Business to Business Model
Signarama works under a business to business (or “B2B”) model. This means that we market our products to other businesses rather than consumers at large. The B2B business model provides some measure of security for our franchisees — businesses need signage! Whether it’s to promote a grand opening, a new product, or a sale, businesses rely on Signarama to provide them with the promotional products they need to get the word out about their offerings. While consumer tastes can change depending on the economy, trends, and preferences, businesses need the products we’re selling, making our franchises important pillars of their local business communities.
Training and Support
Many prospective franchisees wonder if they have what it takes to run a sign-making franchise given their limited experience in the field. The great news is that Signarama has developed a comprehensive training and support programme designed to help get franchisees from all backgrounds up to speed on just what it takes to produce our products, manage our locations, and more. With our assistance in everything from negotiating a lease, to marketing support, to a highly-effective mentor program, we strive to make it as hassle-free for our franchisees to get their doors open and grow their business.
A Well-Established Brand
Signarama has been in business for decades, and in that time we’ve produced countless signs, banners, car wraps, and other promotional products for the businesses we serve. Over the years, we’ve developed a reputation for excellence. Customers all over the world equate the Signarama name with quality. This strong reputation will help our franchisees as they establish a name for themselves. Rather than spending years building up a reputation for themselves, they can instantly capitalize on the strength of our brand recognition.

Franchise myths abound, spreading false information about the process of franchising and worrying potential investors. You may be surprised to learn that the franchising process is actually simpler than you may think. At Signarama, we strive to make it as easy as possible for our franchisees to learn the business, open their doors, and start making signs for the businesses in their communities! In this post, we’ll review a few of the ways we make things easy for our franchisees.
Getting Up-to-Speed on the Business
Independent business owners can spend months, or even years, learning the tricks of their new trade. When you open a Signarama franchise, you’ll attend a comprehensive training session at our headquarters in West Palm Beach, Florida in the United States. This training is designed to teach you everything you’ll need to know in order to make signs and run your business in just two weeks! Despite what the franchise myths would have you believe, this valuable training helps our franchisees save valuable time and money by learning the tricks of the trade quickly and effectively.
Getting any new business up and running can take time and effort, and can come with hassles that take even more resources to avoid. At Signarama we strive to make it as easy as possible for our franchisees to open their doors. We offer lease negotiation, helping our franchisees find just the right location at just the right price. We also offer marketing support, helping you to spread the word about your new business to the potential customers in your community. We even send one of our experts to work with you in your location for a whole week, ensuring that you’ve got a good handle on what it takes to run your business! A common franchise myth is that many franchisors end their support after the contract is signed and the fees are paid, leaving franchisees to fend for themselves. At Signarama, nothing could be further from the truth. Support from our team as they grow their businesses is one of the most valuable resources our franchisees enjoy.
These are just a few ways that franchise myths don’t tell the whole story when it comes to franchising with Signarama. Contact us today to learn more about how we strive to make it simple for you to run your sign-making franchise!
If you’re thinking of opening a digital printing franchise of your own, look no further than Signarama. We’ve been in business for decades, and have locations across the globe. Our expertise and wide range of products help our franchisees grow their businesses while also servicing their local business communities. Here’s a quick look at some of the ways Signarama stands apart from the competition.
Expertise and Experience
Signarama has been in business since 1986. In that time, we’ve dedicated substantial resources to research and development, keeping us on top of our field when it comes to new sign-making technologies. Thanks to these efforts, we’re able to offer our clients the latest and greatest when it comes to digital signs, neon signs, car lettering, and much more. Furthermore, we’ve opened our fair share of franchise locations. We understand the hurdles that come with opening a new Signarama digital printing franchise, and our training and support programmes are designed with this experience in mind. When it comes to sign-making, you couldn’t ask for better experts than our team at Signarama.
A Wide Range of Products
One of the biggest factors that distinguishes Signarama from other digital printing franchise businesses is the wide range of products we offer. Many sign-makers specialise in just one or a few types of signage. At Signarama, we offer a wide array of signs for our clients to choose from. A few of our most popular signs include banners, interior signs, directional signs, car wraps, and more. Many of our franchisees worry that they don’t have the necessary skills to produce such a wide range of products, but our comprehensive training and support programme helps them learn the skills they need to offer this strong selection with confidence.
An Experienced Franchisor
Not only is Signarama an experienced franchisor in our own right, we’re proud to be a part of the United Franchise Group (UFG) family of brands. UFG has years of experience helping franchisees to grow a range of businesses, and we have the art of franchising down to a science. With us in your corner, you’ll enjoy the support of a strong parent company along with the independence of running your own business.
These are just a few of the reasons that a Signarama digital printing franchise stands out from the competition. Contact us today to learn more about becoming a franchisee!
Owning a franchise with Signarama is a great way to enjoy greater freedom in your career. What’s not to like about being your own boss? In this post, we’ll detail a few of the most popular reasons that our franchisees decided to partner with us. We’ll also let you know what you can expect to gain when you become a Signarama franchisee.
Greater Flexibility in Your Schedule
One of the strongest benefits of owning a franchise with Signarama is the ability to design your own schedule. In corporate jobs, workers are on someone else’s schedule. Rarely if ever is any consideration given to what’s important to employees: school drop-off and pick-up times, church meetings, and important family functions are often not taken into account when schedules are developed. As a Signarama franchisee, you can decide for yourself when you’d like to work, and what tasks you’d like to delegate to your staff. With this kind of freedom, you’ll be able to free yourself up for all of the important events and considerations in your life.
Greater Control of Your Business
Corporate employees labor for the benefit of shareholders, CEOs, and other people who they will likely never meet. Why should others enjoy the fruits of your labor? Owning a franchise with Signarama allows franchisees to benefit directly from their own hard work. Furthermore, while Signarama does implement policies and procedures that we hope will make running the business simple, franchise owners are free to make many important business decisions for themselves. If you’re looking to enjoy the freedom that comes with entrepreneurship, owning a franchise with Signarama is a great way to do it.
Excellent Training and Support
When you become a Signarama franchisee, you’ll enjoy the benefits of entrepreneurship along with the security that comes from excellent training and support. Rather than needing to teach yourself the sign-making trade on your own, you can rely on our years of experience in the industry and sophisticated training programme to teach you what you’ll need to know. We are also proud to offer our franchisees support before, during, and after their grand opening, helping them to feel confident as they run their businesses.
These are just a few reasons that owning a franchise with Signarama is a great way to enjoy greater career freedom. Contact us today to learn more about becoming a franchisee!
Now is a great time to get involved in the signage industry by opening your own franchise with Signarama. When you franchise with us, you’ll help provide the full range of sign and graphic solutions, from vinyl banners to digital signs to building signs and vehicle wraps that the businesses in your community need. Here are a few insider tips about this growing industry and why now is a great time to invest.
The Power of B2B
A B2B (“business to business”) business model like Signarama’s works on multiple levels. Your customers will be made up of the businesses in your community, and as a banner franchise your services are in-demand. Businesses need signs in order to advertise sales, grab attention, direct traffic, and more. Since your services will regularly be in-demand, your business arguably won’t be as susceptible to ebbs and flows in the economy as non-B2B businesses. Furthermore, B2B helps our franchisees to network. Many local businesses are members of chambers of commerce or other organisations. Developing strong relationships with the businesses you serve can lead to additional work from their trusted associates.
Digital Signs are Taking Over Australia
The signage industry is booming in Australia and abroad. The digital signage sector is growing in particular, and is estimated to be worth $133 million by 2020. Electronics News attributes this growth to an increased demand for digital signage in the retail, corporate, and public sectors in Australia. Across the board, organisations understand the value of eye-catching digital signage and are revamping their existing signage to these eye-catching digital displays. One of the benefits of franchising with Signarama is our focus on emerging technology. You can count on us to keep you up-to-date on the latest and greatest in sign-making technology
Products in High Demand
For hundreds of years, businesses and organisations of all kinds have relied on signs in order to attract customers and to spread the word about their services. New stores and businesses are opening all the time, and they’ll need signs in order to introduce themselves to their communities. Well-established businesses rely on signs in order to communicate with their customers, and periodically need to update their existing signage. The consistent need for our products is one reason why we believe the sign-making industry will keep going strong.
These are just a few of the reasons that the signage industry is a great place to invest. When you invest in a signage franchise with Signarama, you’ll be able to enjoy all of the wisdom we’ve accrued over years of experience and growth. Reach out to us today to learn more!
