PostNet printing, marketing and design franchises help small and medium sized businesses thrive by offering convenient and professional printing and shipping services. We provide everything from business cards, brochures, banners and vehicle graphics to signage and direct mail. We also offer marketing solutions including email marketing, and website creation and logo design. We help small businesses with parcel logistics, and can provide a shipping partner to help customers get shipments out on time. Small businesses do a lot with a small staff and a smaller budget – PostNet provides a solid partner to make sure the business has the marketing services it needs to grow.
PostNet franchise owners are able to get started with a total investment of $169,767 to $212,275, which includes working capital. Traditional printing and marketing franchises that offer only a fraction of the services — and market potential — generally cost 2-3 times as much to startup. Unlike printing franchises, we have smaller equipment packages and a more affordable buildout – we want our franchisees to have the equipment they need to be successful.
Because the business of PostNet is in helping the surrounding small businesses to thrive, the most successful PostNet franchisees are civic-minded and outgoing people who gain fulfillment from working with small business owners, schools and others in their communities. Our franchise owners have diverse business backgrounds, and very few of them were in the printing or shipping business before joining the PostNet family. The essential skills that go into running a PostNet print franchise are project management and business-to-business networking.
PostNet co-founders Steve Greenbaum and Brian Spindel started the pack-and-ship business that has evolved into PostNet in the early 1980s, and the business has prospered and endured through every kind of economy — the rapid growth of the Reagan and Clinton years, the early 1990s recession, and the Great Recession.
The three industries in which we operate — printing, marketing and shipping — have a combined value of more than $380 billion. A PostNet franchise owner can offer all of the popular pack-and-ship services while also competing head-to-head with a full-scale printing franchise with just a fraction of the investment.
