Start Your Summer with SpeedPro

June 21, 2022

For most people, summer means vacations, family gatherings, sporting events, and outdoor adventures. But for determined entrepreneurs, summer is also a fantastic time for new business planning!

If you’re interested in opening a B2B franchise, consider SpeedPro, a light manufacturing, large-format printing business. Getting started with SpeedPro during the summer months is a great way to position your small business for success. Here’s why.

Why start a business in summer?

The summer season tends to be slower when it comes to new business startups. There are a number of potential reasons for this.

First, people get busy during the summer months and put business planning on the back burner. Between vacations, kids being out of school, and social events, many entrepreneurs decide they’re simply too busy to get started and push their planning to the fall. Second, many entrepreneurs intend to time their business opening for the new year or the end of the year. This means a lot of people ramp up during the fall and winter seasons.

However, there’s no one “right” season for your business’s launch! Summer is a fantastic choice and may actually give you some advantages in the market. For example, by starting your SpeedPro franchise this summer, you will be up and running in just a few short months,  partner with businesses in your community, and generate revenue sooner than your wait-til-later counterparts. And, let’s be honest, the fall leads swiftly into the holiday season, the busiest time of year for most people.

Remember, there’s no perfect time to start a business. The startup tasks, onboarding, and responsibilities are the same no matter the season. So, why wait to begin your entrepreneurial journey? Waiting until “later” might just become “never” if you delay.

Summertime is a great time to pursue business ownership, and be up and running quickly!

The path to SpeedPro ownership

Another important thing to consider is the timeline to opening for your chosen franchise system. With SpeedPro, it takes a few months for franchisees to work through the discovery process, sign the franchise agreement, buildout their Studios, and open their doors. Beginning this process in the summer allows you to get up and running that much sooner.

Take a look at the timeline breakdown, from discovery to opening.

  • Discovery process: SpeedPro’s 8-step discovery process helps you learn about our business and determine whether it’s the right fit for you. It ends with you signing a franchise agreement and beginning your franchise journey. This entire process can last between 60 and 90 days.
  • Training: After completing the discovery process, all new Studio owners partake in a two-week training session at the SpeedPro home office in Denver, Colorado. During this time, you’ll learn everything you need to know about operating a SpeedPro Studio.
  • Studio buildout: After selecting your Studio’s location, there will be a buildout period to ensure the property meets the needs of your business. Although this process varies, most buildouts take 30 to 60 days. During this time, you’ll work with a nearby Buddy Studio to build client relationships and generate revenue—even before your doors open!

After these few months, your Studio will be complete and you’ll be ready to host your grand opening!

Begin your journey today

SpeedPro’s streamlined startup process makes it easy to launch your Studio with support in just a few months. Starting in the summer allows you to get up and running before the end of the year. You’ll enjoy solid business footing as you enter the new year, with a full calendar year for budgeting and tracking sales. Opening before the start of the new year also allows you to take advantage of local business’s fresh marketing budgets. When these organizations need large-format printing for their new-year strategies, your established Studio will be prepared to help!

Our rapidly expanding franchise system is looking for determined, relationship-driven entrepreneurs to join our team. If you’re interested in launching your own business in the large-format printing industry, request information about SpeedPro and begin the discovery process this summer.

Printing technologies

The printing industry is constantly changing. Manufacturers continue to refine their printing technologies through more advanced printers, new inks, and more efficient applications. Because we understand technology is evolving every year, we prioritize research and make changes as necessary. SpeedPro representatives attend industry tradeshows and seminars to learn about the latest and greatest tech and constantly evaluate how our current printers are meeting customers’ needs. Over the years, we’ve adopted more eco-friendly inks like UV-curable products, more efficient printers, and other technologies to make our products as high-quality as possible.

Thanks to this research, we’ve taken the guesswork out of choosing printers and inks. Our franchisees know they’re using the very best the industry has to offer. When an owner joins SpeedPro, they purchase our startup package that includes our chosen printers and inks, saving them time and effort on the research process.

The relationships SpeedPro maintains within our amazing vendor network gives franchisees access to the most talented global companies in the print space. When SpeedPro franchisees buy equipment and products, they know they can trust what’s being recommended to them.

Naturally, SpeedPro is fully committed to staying current and even forward-thinking with our offering, investing in the latest printers capable of applying inks to various substrates.

SpeedPro’s product line now proudly includes materials like glass, wood and textiles.

They’ve also made our products more sustainable, with a greater selection of recyclable and biodegradable substrates.

Advanced processes

SpeedPro’s innovation doesn’t stop at printers and materials. We also pay close attention to the processes we use for product installation, as well as behind-the-scenes processes for training, sales, and accounting.

Studio owners get access to the latest iteration of our proprietary workflow and CRM software, making it easier to manage business operations. As technology advances, we update our programs to continue making things easier and faster for franchisees.

All of these efforts not only simplify the operations process—they also keep overhead low for the franchisee. The end result is an efficient, well-run company that provides owners with the support they need on all sides.

Innovation is in our history and our future

SpeedPro has always kept innovation at the forefront, even during our early days as a sign-making business. Staying on the leading edge has helped us become—and remain—the nation’s leading wide-format printing and graphics franchise opportunity.

Office Buildings Need Large Format Printing

May 19, 2022

SpeedPro’s wide-format printing franchise owners enjoys a plethora of client verticals. We work with organizations large and small, from construction companies to nonprofits to local event hosts. However, one of the biggest market segments we serve is the commercial office industry.

Tapping into the office market in your region is one of the most lucrative moves you can make for your SpeedPro Studio. Office buildings offer a world of opportunity—and the future is looking bright thanks to a few trends! Here are a few reasons why SpeedPro’s product line is a perfect match for local office properties.

Identify the Organization

Office buildings—especially those with multiple tenants—rely on large-format signage to identify themselves. Companies might use banners, three-dimensional signs and window graphics to proudly display who occupies their space. Inside, standard, and digital signage helps to delineate between offices and support each company’s branding.

Because many office buildings look the same from the outside, these types of signage are key to helping employees and visitors get to the right place. They also assist in wayfinding by directing visitors to the correct office location.

Choosing high-quality signs from an experienced printer like SpeedPro also helps these organizations make a great first impression. Using quality signage, they’re able to demonstrate how much they care for and take pride in their office environment. This translates to greater trust from customers.

Give Buildings Personality

Large-format signage does so much more than merely identify a specific company, though. Organizations often invest in new and interesting types of signage in order to support their branding efforts and give their building a unique identity.  

For example, branded architectural finishes or contour cut signage may serve as a statement piece for an office building’s lobby. Custom wallpapers and murals can support corporate branding, leaving visitors with a sight worth remembering.

Bright and colorful wallpaper really makes this space inviting and fun!

Each large-format print product an office client chooses should be purposeful and interesting. This way, they’re able to reinforce their brand identity and set their building apart from others in the area. SpeedPro’s advanced printing technology lets us print on almost any material, giving our clients an expansive pool of unique products to choose from.

Enhance Office Culture

The signage an office client uses not only affects its customers but also its employees. After all, they are the people working in the office every day! It’s important that employees enjoy being in their work space and feel comfortable within its four walls.

These days, brands are looking for new ways to entice workers back into the office after the COVID-19 pandemic. Large-format products like wall murals and interesting signs can transform the look and feel of these spaces. Signage featuring scenic murals, mission statements, and inspirational quotes can motivate employees, remind them of the organization’s vision, and boost company morale. These products also make the work environment more inviting, rather than the standard white or gray walls. When offices are more engaging, employees are more engaged in their work!

By livening up the office environment with unique signs, wall graphics and branded finishes, we help corporate tenants stand out in the marketplace and keep their employees happy. Because of this combination of services, SpeedPro acts as a one-stop shop partner for many organizations’ branding and marketing efforts.

There are always new companies looking to build and expand their local presence. This is just one of the reasons SpeedPro Studios thrive in their regional markets. The pool of brands in need of large-format printing is there and ready to be tapped!

SpeedPro’s Place in the Pop-Up Market

April 20, 2022

The pop-up retail trend has been gaining ground for years, and the pandemic only made it more popular among brands. A form of experiential marketing, pop-up retail is a fantastic way for brands to experiment with their businesses and attract more consumer attention.

As the pop-up shop trend grows even larger in the years to come, brands will need a trusted partner to produce the large-format print products used in their temporary locations. SpeedPro can be that partner. Check out why pop-up retail is exploding and how SpeedPro franchise owners are positioned to benefit.

Understanding the Growing Pop-Up Trend

Pop-up retail, also known as “flash retailing,” is a way for brands to set up short-term, low-budget experiences. These shops are often set up in vacant retail storefronts, empty venues in shopping malls, and even mobile trailers, warehouses, and outdoor spaces.

Pop-up shops are particularly popular among online stores, giving them an opportunity to sell to customers in person. Pop-up shops aren’t only for things like clothes, however. Brands are creating pop-up experiences for their hair or nail salons, jewelry shops, bars, eateries, training centers, and much more. The key is taking a business to a new location and setting up a temporary shop.

More and more businesses are turning to the pop-up trend because of its ability to provide great customer insights and generate buzz. Pop-ups are useful for creating excitement about a new launch, showcasing exclusivity, testing new products, and exploring new markets. This is all done in a low-cost and low-risk way.

COVID-19 made pop-ups even more common. As businesses closed mid-pandemic, they left the retail sector’s vacancy rates at an all-time high. In many cases landlords are now willing to be more flexible with their leases, giving brands the ability to rent space for a few months or as little as a few days. Additionally, digital fatigue has led to the rise of in-person shopping once again. Consumers are eager to get out and experience new things.

According to a recent study by Shopify, 32% of brands said they’d be establishing or expanding their use of pop-up and in-person experiences in the next year. This just shows the existing market for pop-up retail and how much it’s growing in the near future. 

How SpeedPro Serves the Pop-Up Market

Pop-up retail is ultimately focused on delivering immersive brand experiences on a short-term basis. Brands rely heavily on foot traffic to bring curious customers through the door, then use branded materials to keep them inside. This means brands need eye-catching signage to advertise and create their pop-ups—but they also need it to be easy to install and takedown.

What this boils down to is that pop-up shops need large-format graphics that SpeedPro can provide! Our product line perfectly serves the needs of brands interested in launching their next pop-up. By working with local businesses that are taking their stores on the road, SpeedPro owners can create a package of print products that turn vacant storefronts into inviting spaces.

Advertising is critical to help pop-ups build brand awareness. Window and floor graphics are great ways to customize the space, direct customers, and advertise from the outside. Outdoor banners and flags are useful advertising materials to draw in passersby.

To maximize easy installation, pop-ups might also utilize a range of large-format materials. Retractable banners and stands, three-dimensional signs, point-of-purchase displays, kiosk design and signage, and even cardboard furniture are all great options for these brands. These types of graphics are durable and portable, allowing businesses to take them from one pop-up to the next.

SpeedPro’s hyperlocal approach also gives owners an edge in the pop-up market. When new brands come to town and are in need of large-format printing, being an established name in the market could bring you that new business.

Take Advantage of Pop-Ups in Your SpeedPro Studio

SpeedPro’s diverse product line and creative approach mean our studios are well-positioned to take advantage of the latest trends in retail and advertising. Through networking, you can make your Studio the go-to provider of large-format printing for local pop-up shops!

The Rise of Out-of-Home Advertising

March 8, 2022

There’s a common saying in marketing that “print isn’t dead.” Although this most often referrs to materials like direct mail, it also rings true for larger print products like window graphics and vehicle wraps. In today’s advertising landscape, digital might be growing, but large-format printing is still a win.

SpeedPro has positioned itself as a leader in the large-format printing industry and is successful for a reason. Our B2B clients understand the value of out-of-home advertising. The large, eye-catching designs customers see on the road or along the street have great ROI. Better yet, these types of advertisements are even more popular in today’s post-pandemic world. Opening a SpeedPro studio now allows our franchisees to meet the growing demand for out-of-home advertising products.

Out-of-home advertising draws eyes

Out-of-home advertising” or OOH refers to any advertisements a customer sees while they are outside of their home. This includes billboards, vehicle wraps, large posters or banners and murals in public spaces. Recent evolutions have also added digital screens and backlit graphics to the OOH mix.

What’s great about out-of-home advertising is that it’s able to be seen by a large number of people every day. Plus, it’s not dependent on precise targeting or timing like digital advertising is. If a customer isn’t on their phone much, they might not see the emails a brand sends out. But as they drive to work or run errands, they have a high chance of seeing a banner or wrapped vehicle on the road!

When done well, OOH advertising is extremely eye-catching and holds customers’ attention. They’re great for brand and event awareness but can also send targeted messages and encourage actions. Because of all these benefits, organizations in almost every industry have invested in out-of-home advertising.

Post-pandemic advertising looks different

The current marketing landscape has also given OOH advertising a boost. The pandemic changed the way customers interact with ads. For the better part of two years, people spent the majority of their time at home. This drove brands toward digital advertising, reaching customers on their phones and computers. Unfortunately, this resulted in a lot of digital “noise” and clutter that buyers quickly began to tune out.

With the world largely opened up once again, people are spending more time outside of their homes and away from digital spaces. Brands are investing more of their money and effort into out-of-home ads that buyers see in the real world. Not only are these ads reaching customers where they are, they’re also cutting through that digital noise and making buyers take notice.

SpeedPro is positioned to deliver

In order to execute a successful out-of-home advertising campaign, brands need a reliable partner in the large-format printing space. Banners, window graphics, vehicle wraps and other large, physical ads must be carefully designed, printed and installed to maintain a professional appearance and have the biggest impact on viewers. This is the exact area where SpeedPro excels!

SpeedPro’s product line is well suited to meet the heightened demand for this large OOH advertising needs like billboards, signage and more. Our studios are capable of producing a vast array of large-format products. We even have the flexibility to print on new and unique substrates, like wood, glass and eco-friendly materials, allowing us to keep pace with emerging trends.

What’s even better is that many of our products are cost-effective for both us and our clients. Vehicle wraps are one of the most cost-effective out-of-home advertising products in the industry, with an average cost of four cents per thousand impressions. That’s a lot of impact for a small investment!

Breaking into the large-format printing industry can come with some obstacles, especially if you don’t have the technical expertise or experience. Fortunately, SpeedPro has built a national presence and a stellar reputation for quality, professionalism and collaboration. Clients interested in launching or expanding their out-of-home ad campaigns know SpeedPro is the printing partner to choose for a full range of product choices. We provide all our owners with ongoing training and the latest equipment and technology in the industry to ensure they uphold the SpeedPro standard.

Are you interested in launching a business that is prepared to capitalize on the growing OOH advertising industry? SpeedPro’s franchise opportunity might be a great fit for you! Contact us today to get in touch with a franchising representative.

4 Trends Supporting SpeedPro Growth

February 10, 2022

As a prospective SpeedPro franchisee, you want to be certain that there’s a future for your business. Assessing trends in the wide-format printing industry is critical to understanding how SpeedPro is poised to grow and evolve over time.

Fortunately, SpeedPro’s business model is both innovative and market-leading. We have our fingers on the pulse of macro industry trends that are expected to drive growth among our many product lines. Take a closer look at a few key trends we believe support SpeedPro’s bright future as an essential franchise business opportunity.

Out-of-home advertising

Today’s marketing and advertising professionals are balancing highly targeted digital ads with broad-reaching out-of-home (OOH) advertisements. Large in size and highly visible, OOH ads are seen by thousands of passersby each day. Wall murals, billboards, banners and vehicle wraps improve brand recognition and have the potential to capture new customers.

As a large-format printing franchise, SpeedPro is perfectly aligned with the growing OOH advertising trend. Rather than cater to small-format product lines like business cards and letterhead, our business provides quality, large-scale products designed to be seen by millions. With our name established in the industry, we’re ready to capture more customers as they increasingly turn to OOH advertising.

Smaller print runs

Wide-format print customers – generally businesses like marketing firms, advertising agencies, universities, corporations and such – are less likely to purchase bulk print products. Instead, they’re more likely to need a handful of projects that are highly customized. In the past, mass customization on small print runs was not cost-effective for the printer or the customer. Thanks to changing technologies, however, small print runs are both possible and reasonable in terms of cost.

SpeedPro studios are well positioned to meet the demand for highly customized, smaller print needs. Our clients may request a single wall mural or vehicle wraps for an entire fleet. Our business model is set up to meet those needs and produce high-quality graphics on a smaller scale without charging exorbitant prices or reducing our owners’ profit margins.

Demand for sustainability

Sustainability is a growing point of focus across all industries. B2B customers are factoring green production into their decision to purchase. The printing industry has begun shifting to more sustainable printing materials, including eco-friendly inks like latex and water-based solutions.

The demand for sustainability has also extended into an expectation for more sustainable substrates. Instead of erecting PVC-based signage, customers are opting for greener materials, like PVC-free vinyl, textiles and paper products. This demand is driving growth in UV printing technologies. UV printers are capable of printing directly onto a wider range of substrates, giving large-format printers more flexibility in the sustainable products they offer.

SpeedPro stays on top of the industry’s cutting-edge products, including inks and printers. By introducing these technologies to our studio owners, we enable you to take advantage of the growth and demand for sustainable printing.

Surface printing options expand

Changes in print technology have expanded the role wide-format printing plays in the print franchise industry. High-efficiency printers paired with new types of inks have allowed for more diversity in printing substrates. Today, nearly every surface can be printed on, including textiles, glass and wood. This gives customers far greater choice when selecting the print medium for their project.

It also gives SpeedPro owners the opportunity to home in on and promote cost-effective substrates. As printing technology makes it easier to transform nearly any surface into a well-designed, printed message, in-house costs will continue to drop. SpeedPro studios can offer a greater product selection with lower overhead, less waste and higher profit margins.

Rather than fight changing tides, SpeedPro remains flexible, innovative and evolving as trends emerge and shift in the printing industry. This is how we’ve remained at the cutting edge of wide-format print franchising for decades—and how we will continue to do so. By joining the SpeedPro family, you’ll get access to our decades of experience and the industry insights that will shape our future.

Who is the Ideal SpeedPro Franchisee?

February 1, 2022

SpeedPro studio owners across the nation come from a wide variety of backgrounds. You don’t need printing experience to be successful in our franchise model! Instead, we look for a few key traits in prospective franchisees that let us know you’ll be a driven, creative and collaborative owner.

If you’re considering investing in your own SpeedPro studio, take a look at the characteristics of our ideal franchisee.

Leader

First and foremost, SpeedPro studio owners must be great leaders. Whether your team stays small or multiplies over the years, your staff will need a leader they trust and respect. Our ideal franchisee has good leadership skills, is able to manage a team of employees, and works diligently to keep the studio running smoothly.

Business-minded

Experience in printing isn’t required to own a SpeedPro, but business experience is very important. In order for your studio to be successful, you need to have some experience in sales and business operations. You should understand what it takes to keep a business profitable and be prepared to make the “tough decisions” that help it flourish.

One key characteristic is the ability to seek out relationship-building opportunities like the chamber, civic organizations, and the like, and use these relationships to build your business over time. As a business-to-business (B2B) franchise model, not a business-to-consumer (B2C) model, our owners routinely meet with presidents, executive, directors, managers and more to understand their needs and how SpeedPro can exceed their expectations.

Problem solver

SpeedPro doesn’t just provide a service to clients. We create solutions. Therefore, problem-solving abilities are necessary on all levels of the business. Not only will you need to direct your team to solve problems to meet customers’ needs, you’ll also need to solve problems to keep your business running.

SpeedPro owners are a tightly-connected network of like-minded peers, and this network proactively seeks to help its owners when a need arises. Need a special substrate and your supplier is out of stock? Contact another studio owner who can help.

Creative

Creative products require creative thinkers! SpeedPro owners need to lead the charge in terms of creativity in order to deliver top-notch service to customers. From product suggestions to professional installation, thinking outside of the box for unique solutions sets SpeedPro apart.

Driven

Running a business can be challenging. SpeedPro owners need tenacity and drive in order to overcome hurdles and build a thriving studio. No matter what business ownership throws at you, you should be ready to push through to the other side!

Growth-minded

Although most SpeedPro studios open with a small staff and few clients, the goal is to grow. The large-format printing industry is growing at an exponential pace, and driven owners have the ability to grow along with it! Our ideal franchisee will be able to set goals for growth and implement strategies to achieve them.

Invests in the business

The investment you make when you first buy your SpeedPro studio is only step one. After that day, you should be making consistent investments in the business to help it grow and stay profitable. These investments are not only monetary—investments of time and energy are also critical to the SpeedPro way. This is not a “set it and forget it” type of venture!

Amiable and approachable

A big part of running a SpeedPro studio is networking and meeting with potential clients. For this reason, SpeedPro franchisees must be amiable and pleasant to work with. If you’re a “people person,” the day-to-day operation of your studio will be much easier and more successful!

Collaborative

At SpeedPro, we like to say we don’t merely provide a product—we build partnerships with customers. Our studios serve as an extension of our customers’ marketing and advertising teams, helping them find the perfect solution to their print and signage problems. SpeedPro owners must excel at working as part of a team and collaborating with their internal staff and clients to get the job done.

Follows the model

The SpeedPro model has been perfected over decades to position each and every studio for success. Using our training, tools, recommended equipment and streamlined processes, owners without a shred of printing experience can build a mini empire in their region.

Owners do get the freedom to grow their SpeedPro studio in the direction they choose—for example, targeting certain customer segments. However, we expect each owner to rely on the built-in operational model we provide when you’re serving clients.

The SpeedPro franchise opportunity is a great fit for entrepreneurs who love networking with clients, developing relationships and staying on the cutting edge. Between your skills and experience and our proven business model, you’ll be prepared to serve your territory in exciting ways!

Internet Print Companies Can’t Top SpeedPro

December 2, 2021

The rise of e-commerce has impacted more than just the retail industry. Customers are turning to online shopping for a wide range of needs—including print products. Many online print companies have grown in recent years, but despite their popularity, these internet-based companies can’t entirely compete with brick-and-mortar print studios like SpeedPro.

The fact remains that brick-and-mortar printing businesses still trump online companies when it comes to delivering value. Here are five reasons why brick-and-mortar print shops are expected to stay strong in the face of internet-based printing.

Comprehensive service

Some customers are tempted by the convenience of uploading a file and clicking a single “submit” button through an online printer. However, there’s a lot missing from these types of transactions. In most cases, there’s no project manager on the other end of the website ready to help out. Unless customers understand the fine details of print projects, there’s a risk they’ll make a mistake that costs them money and quality.

Brick-and-mortar print studios don’t merely fulfill orders. Businesses like SpeedPro serve as partners in a clients’ printing strategy, offering assistance from start to finish.

Our studios offer more services than the print job itself. By working in-person with studio staff, clients can receive in-depth project consultations to determine which products are right for their goals. They also benefit from design assistance, project proofing and tweaking, final delivery, and even installation. All of these value-added services ensure the project truly meets their needs and is of the highest quality.

Complex projects

Internet printing companies often offer basic types of print products, like flyers, postcards, business cards and other small-format items. However, when customers need larger, more complex print products—such as a detailed trade show display or a vehicle wrap­—they’re better off working with a local large-format printing partner.

SpeedPro studios don’t just offer printed products; we create printed solutions. Our staff are experts in designing, sizing, color matching and outlaying print projects that make a statement. Because large, complex print jobs are an investment for the client, it’s safer to trust a knowledgeable print studio with a track record of success.

Expert installation

Installation of large-format print products like vehicle wraps, window graphics and wall murals needs to be done right. Printing and installation should be a package deal to ensure the quality and longevity of the piece. SpeedPro studios aren’t just skilled in designing and producing printed products. We’re also product installation experts. Our franchisees have trained employees on staff who will not only deliver but also install print products quickly and correctly. That’s one less thing for the customer to worry about!

This wall mural really pops!

Rush orders

Internet print companies may have 24/7 ordering and offer rapid turnarounds, but they’re still subject to shipping times. Customers who need a print job completed and installed quickly can’t always be certain it will arrive on time.

Local print studios may have the capability to offer same-day or next-day turnarounds on projects. Because SpeedPro studios cater to local clientele, it’s easy for us to complete and deliver a high-quality project in hours when customers are in a pinch.

Ongoing consistency and trust

One thing internet print companies can’t always promise is consistency. Batched orders can suffer from inconsistencies in color, material and more. When it comes to large-format print products, consistency is necessary for clients to maintain a professional image.

Serving as a local partner, SpeedPro studios are better able to meet clients’ ongoing needs for consistent, high-quality print products. Our goal is to become a long-term partner of our customers’ and deliver excellent products and customer service again and again. After the first visit, customers learn that they’ll be well taken care of and are more likely to return later.

Become your community’s trusted printing partner

The SpeedPro franchise model is perfect for innovative and hardworking entrepreneurs who value quality, customer service and local partnerships. Ready to learn more? Fill out our contact form, and a representative will be in touch about our investment opportunity!
