People still love printed materials. Fact.So much so, that the UK printing industry grew between 2014 and 2016, to reach an incredible turnover of £13.8 billion. That substantial amount of business was handled by 8,400 print companies, who invested around £700 million worth of capital in their ventures during the year.
Proof indeed that print is alive and kicking. And as new technology has revolutionised many of the processes, and widened its impact to include such innovations as 3D printing, there are plenty of opportunities to become your own boss with a printing franchise.
If you have ever envied the success of some of the UK’s leading print companies, there is good news for you. It is possible to use their proven business models – and respected branding – to set up your own business.Having a printing franchise is also the fast track to reduced rates on equipment and supplies thanks to the buying power of the big players.
Plus, a print franchise agreement ensures you always have access to industry insights, client referrals, and marketing support such as a vital website. Online orders are the lifeblood of modern print companies – from leaflets to signage, from product packaging to adverting posters.
