What Will You Find in the Disclosure Document?

Opening a Signarama printing franchise is a great way to break into a new career. Businesses need signage, and we’re proud to have been providing promotional signs of all sorts for more than 30 years. One of the last steps in the process of becoming a franchisee is to review the disclosure document, an important resource that spells out all of the details you’ll need to know about franchising with Signarama. In this post, we’ll point out a few particularly important aspects of the disclosure document that you should be sure to understand before signing your franchise agreement.

What Can You Expect from Your Franchisor?

Understanding exactly what you can expect from Signarama when you open your printing franchise is crucial. The disclosure document spells out exactly what you can expect as far as training, startup support, ongoing support, and more. Some of this information is already up on our website for you to review, but the disclosure document goes into important detail that you should be sure to attend to. One of the benefits of franchising is the support you’ll enjoy, so be sure to understand exactly what to expect when you become a franchisee.

What Will You Owe Your Franchisor?

Another important point to review is exactly what your franchisor can expect from you. Pay particular attention to what is included in the initial investment, what royalties or fees you should expect to pay, and what you’ll receive in exchange for these payments. At Signarama, our goal is to make it as simple as possible for you to run your printing franchise in consideration of the fees and royalties you pay. The disclosure document will describe in extensive detail exactly what your franchisor will expect of you, and if you’re unclear on any of these points it’s important to ask for clarification.

Financial details on our company will help you to make an informed decision about what to reasonably expect when you open your new location. Owning a printing franchise is an exciting way to shake up your career, and understanding this performance is an important way to assess your location’s potential.

3 Reasons to Consider Owning a Franchise

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!

Everything You Need to Know About the Growing Signage Industry

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.

How Digital Signage Helps a Business Attract Customers

Digital Printing

Historically, the sign and print industry created store signage manually. People used to create signs by writing on a wooden board or painting a store’s name on a timber or metal board. Printing machines allowed for much greater flexibility and quality in creating signs. The machines used stamping mechanisms to put lettering on a hard plastic to create a store’s signage.

Currently, digital printing is revolutionising the sign and print industry by introducing eye-catching store signage that uses intricate typography. With the rise of new technology, digital signage is one of most effective ways to attract customers to your store.

Visual Impact

Although digital signage can cost more than traditional signs, presenting it outside your store is a strong way to capture people’s attention. Whether it’s a wall of TV monitors or a bright, high-resolution LED display, you can use digital signage to inform your audiences about your business. You don’t need to bombard your digital signage with a variety of colours and text. When designing your digital sign, remember that simplicity is key to convincing a person to stop and read about your business through a digital sign.

Engaging Customers

You can take advantage of digital signage by updating it with any message you want at any time of the day. Showing a new message allows your business to expand your audience reach, and it can also promote your company’s new products or update readers on company developments.

The power of digital technology means your sign can have touch-screen features that engages customers. The more interactive your sign is, the more interested your customers will be about your company.
