FASTSIGNS® to Educate East Coast Sign Shop Owners about Franchise Conversion Opportunities

Company will Exhibit at the Upcoming National Business Media Show in Philadelphia

September 13, 2012 // // CARROLLTON, Texas – The National Business (NBM) Show is making its final stop of the year in Philadelphia on Sept. 20-22. FASTSIGNS International Inc., the worldwide franchisor of FASTSIGNS® visual communications, signage and graphics centers, will be exhibiting at the show to educate attendees about franchise opportunities with the company.

The show, which will be held at the Pennsylvania 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 at Booth No. 219 to speak with independent sign shop owners about the company’s conversion program.

“We have attended every NBM show this year because we’ve found great success educating attendees on our turn-key franchise opportunity,” Jameson said. “Sign shop owners throughout the East Coast, and across the U.S. are looking for ways to grow their business and reach long-term goals, and our conversion program is designed to do just that. We offer advantages that independent sign shops just don’t have - improved buying power and relationships with vendors, access to national accounts and up-to-date technology and digital services. These factors, combined with our proven business model, training and support ensure the success of our franchisees.”

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 later this year.

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. The company also 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.
