Instant Imprints Awards British Columbia Area Master License

Oakville, ON, September 9th, 2009, Instant  Imprints Canada is proud to announce it has awarded the British Columbia Area  Franchise to Darpan Developments Inc. based in Richmond, BC.

Gagan Bhathal, the  company’s principal officer is also owner of the Surrey, BC Instant Imprints  store located at 109-8077 King George Highway.

The British Columbia  Area is slated for the addition of 40 more locations throughout the province,  bringing the total to 42.

 Instant Imprints is recognized as North America's largest imprinted specialty  merchandise franchise. The retail store concept specializes in embroidery,  banners & signs, heat transfers, screen-printing and promotional products.  The combination of services offers a unique and proven full service franchise  model that helps businesses in developing and implementing their promotional  campaigns.

“It is a great pleasure  to make this announcement on behalf of Ralph Askar our President and CEO,”  beamed Don Crupi, Vice President, Franchise and Business Development for  II.CA., the company that owns the master license for Instant Imprints in  Canada. “We are extremely pleased with Gagan’s initiative to grow the business  firstly in his store market and now province wide. The Instant Imprints turnkey  franchise solution is well positioned to attain our British Columbia  development goals.”

“Potential franchisees  recognize the opportunity in the marketplace for a one-stop shop for  professional, brand building solutions for small businesses, provided in any  type of quantity. Traditionally, large volumes needed to be ordered from the  large promotional imprinting companies and samples were hard to come by. At  Instant Imprints, it’s a retail setting so people can see right away the  quality they are buying, and any quantity can be ordered – which is perfect for  small business,” explains Crupi.
