FASTSIGNSr to Educate Midwest Sign Shop Owners about Franchise Conversion Opportunities

Company will exhibit at the upcoming National Business Media Show in Indianapolis

CARROLLTON, Texas – As the National Business Media (NBM) Show continues to make its way across the United States, FASTSIGNS International Inc., the worldwide franchisor of FASTSIGNS® visual communications, signage and graphics centers, will be at the upcoming show in Indianapolis on June 21 – 23, 2012.

The show, which will be held at the Indiana Convention Center, is designed to educate attendees on the latest in sign making, digital printing, apparel decorating, engraving, personalization, promotional products and more. FASTSIGNS Senior Vice President of Franchise Support & Development, Mark Jameson, will be on hand at Booth No. 1213 to speak with independent sign shop owners about the company’s franchise opportunity and conversation program.

“As independent sign shop owners across the Midwest continue to seek successful strategies to grow their business, converting their independent store into a FASTSIGNS franchise offers them the ability to take advantage of incentives such as improved buying power with vendors, access to national accounts, as well as up-to-date technology,” Jameson said. “It is our goal to help our franchise owners reach success by providing them with a proven system of training and support.”

As the company’s program continues to expand, FASTSIGNS has successfully converted more than 20 independent sign shops into FASTSIGNS centers within the past 24 months. The company also recently signed two conversion deals in Ontario, Canada. Both centers will be opening under the FASTSIGNS name in late summer or early fall 2012.

As part of the support provided to independent sign shop owners, FASTSIGNS offers financing for conversion agreements, for as little as $6,000 down in addition to reduced royalties. Furthermore, the company offers the leading brand name in the sign and graphics industry and the latest technology, cost savings and relationships with national vendors and suppliers, comprehensive marketing and visual communications solutions and the benefits that come from networking with FASTSIGNS centers nationwide.

With more than 530 FASTSIGNS sign and graphics centers around the world, FASTSIGNS provides marketing and visual communications solutions to businesses, organizations and events of all types and sizes. FASTSIGNS offers a variety of sign and graphics solutions – including banners, building signs, digital signage, yard signs, vehicle graphics, decals, trade show exhibits and displays, point-of-purchase signs, and posters – as well as mobile websites, promotional products, printing and other marketing services.
