The International Sign & Printmakers Guild, a member-led organization designed to help sign and print providers grow their businesses and reduce costs, has extended membership to all Signs By Tomorrow Franchise Members.
Over 150 Signs By Tomorrow locations across North America are welcomed into the International Sign & Printmakers Guild, one of the fastest growing organizations in the sign and print industry, with over 1,400 member businesses.
“Signs By Tomorrow prides itself on innovation. With the International Sign & Printmakers Guild, we saw an opportunity for our members and wanted them to be involved,” says Eric Esch, Franchise Services manager. “We contacted the Guild about a Franchise-wide enrollment process.”
“We are pleased to welcome all of the Signs By Tomorrow Franchise Members into the Guild,” says Mark Stevens, executive director of the International Sign & Printmakers Guild. “Signs By Tomorrow espouses the high standards of sign and print quality, as well as business integrity that is expected from Guild members.”
Bringing Members New Business
A key benefit for Guild members in North America is the opportunity to get new customers from the SIGN.COM web store that is launching later this summer. SIGN.COM is where the sign buying public can easily design and order custom signs or banners, orders are then routed to local Guild members for fulfillment.
The Guild also offers shop-branded e-Commerce web sites to its members, where they can set pricing and receive print-ready orders from new and existing customers.
“The Guild brings value-added benefits to our franchise members,” says Esch. “The Guild offers an innovative approach for acquiring new customers, which we like.”
Guild members in North America also have access to a variety of cost saving programs ranging from credit card processing to discounted freight shipments and prescription drug cards. In addition, the Guild will be offering free software tools in the near future that simplify common business task, further reducing time and production costs.
Guild membership is free and open to any wide format sign or print business. For membership and sponsorship details, see www.signprintguild.org.
