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.
