Franchise Network Printing
Franchise Print Shop specializes in fulfillment of marketing and other printed materials for franchise systems. We create a web-to-print ordering portal for franchisees to access 24 hours a day with templates that they can customize according to their needs. Franchisees don’t have to customize themselves, they simply enter their information and requested changes and our designers send them a proof for their review. Proofs normally come within an hour and never take more than one business day. We can also create password-protected portals to keep products, pricing and marketing information confidential.
Brand and Advertising Rules
We know the importance of brand consistency and we abide by all the rules and guidelines set forth by the franchisor. Although we customize our products for free, the franchisor has the final say in which changes are allowed. The templates and allowable changes are determined in advance so that there is no loss in brand identity.
Franchise System Size
We work with both fresh, start-up franchises as well as decades-old, mature franchises with hundreds of locations. If needed, our marketing specialists and talented graphic designers can help create your marketing materials and give you ideas for new ones. But if your marketing department is self-sufficient, we can simply update your templates on the portal whenever needed. Here are some of the franchise networks we serve:
We are set up in a way that we can beat the pricing offered by the largest factory printers but keep the close personal customer service that franchises appreciate. This means we can offer better pricing than your franchisees are used to paying. We use all the advantages a franchise system has including group buying power, bulk pre-printing and discounted volume shipping rates. Also, with the designers at Franchise Print Shop handling the customization and print set-up, franchisees don’t need to hire a graphic designer to modify templates before going to print.
Pre-Printed Materials and Warehousing:
One great way to keep printing costs down is to pre-print bulk quantities of certain items and stock them in our warehouse. This cost saving strategy also makes the turn-around much faster for the franchisee as they can be shipped out the same day they’re ordered.
Having a single source for your franchisees makes it easier for them to get their materials and helps ensure quality consistency. We have the ability to supply them with almost any type of printed product for your franchise system from business cards to trade show displays. The best way to start with the set-up process is to get a list of items that you want us to supply. From there, we can return to you some price quotes to be sure we are saving your franchisees money in comparison to what they were paying with previous vendors.

Marketing Material Fulfillment:
Franchisor marketing managers have more important things to do than fulfilling print orders from their franchisees. We take care of everything: customization, proofing, printing and distribution. Your corporate marketing team will have more time to focus on strategy and creative execution. You can also be confident that we do free reprints for any dissatisfied franchisees.
The typical set-up cost for receiving, modifying and pre-flighting artwork files and creating the ordering portal is $999. This can vary based on the volume of products you would like to supply your franchisees and the number of templates that they can choose from. Normal processing time to get the ordering portal set up is 1-2 weeks depending on the volume.
