SpeedPro Imaging – Small Business Owners Collaborate to Produce Big Results

7 Fleet

The 2016 Denver Broncos. SEAL Team Six. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Rocky and Bullwinkle (we have to have some fun, right?). Just a few examples of some of the great teams defined by excellent collaboration that have been assembled over the years. SpeedPro Imaging, the nation’s leader in large format imagery, is another fantastic case.

SpeedPro Imaging has grown to more than 130 studios spread across the country. Many of those locations are owned and operated by the same people you see at your child’s school, your local grocery store, or place of worship. Our franchise owners take pride that their studios cater to the needs of the communities they live in. And, they love helping other franchisees deliver big-time results as well.

What are some traits of a great team? If you’re a basketball team, having someone such as, say, LeBron James helps. But sports fans know that just having the best player doesn’t mean you have the best team. It’s about cohesiveness and commitment to a similar goal. And that translates well in franchising.

Fast Company recently determined there are five factors that separate great teams from good ones:

  • They are committed to the vision, and achieving extraordinary goals
  • They share accountability for results
  • Their communication is transparent
  • They resolve conflict constructively
  • They have mutual respect, and strong camaraderie

The teamwork displayed by ALL franchise partners in SpeedPro’s nationwide network is what differentiates us from our competitors. We’re a team. Our network of 130 studios works together to produce stellar products. SpeedPro owners are never alone on an island. There’s always a hand extended when needed.

Collaboration allows our SpeedPro Imaging franchisees to fulfill orders not just at home, but on a national level. Most SpeedPro Imaging franchisees use the same equipment (including the game-changing HP FB550 UV Flatbed printer), to consistently produce high-quality graphics studio-to-studio.

Rand and Lorna Scherff, who own and operate SpeedPro Imaging, North OC (Tustin, CA) bear a fantastic example of collaboration between SpeedPro studios.

System Pavers - Portland ORWhen seven local vehicle wraps turned to seventy national projects, Rand and Lorna turned to their fellow SpeedPro owners to successfully meet the needs of System Pavers, a national paving company who leases their vehicles through Enterprise Fleet Leasing. Then, Eagle Print Dynamics, a promotional materials broker, provided SpeedPro North OC with two more vehicle branding national accounts – which now keep SpeedPros busy across the nation.

“I never would have been able to win bids with these companies if it wasn’t for the network,” says Lorna, who’s teamed up with studios in Colorado, Washington State, Oregon, Northern California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Texas, and others. “Even though I could find third-party installers, it wouldn’t be the same. When I’m calling another SpeedPro, I know that I have a great relationship I can count on and that they’ll do a fantastic job.”

In Georgia, John Barber and Don Neder, co-owners of SpeedPro Imaging of Norcross, GA, also received an assist from their colleagues in Chicago and Dallas to help the cloud computing company Salesforce pull off a pair of spectacular events. With SpeedPro locations across the nation, the list of studio collaborations goes on.

SpeedPro Imaging’s Vehicle Wraps: Helping Drive Eyes and Revenue to Your Business

Planet Fitness3It’s time to put your fleet to work! You paid thousands to equip your business with the best possible vehicle (or fleet of vehicles). Now is the time to team up with SpeedPro Imaging, the nation’s leading provider of vehicle wraps (and fleet wraps), to turn your investment into something more than just a mode of transportation.

Americans love to drive. It’s embedded in our DNA. And we do a whole lot of driving. AAA’s latest survey determined the average American driver spends more than 17,600 minutes behind the wheel each year. That’s more than 290 hours on the road, or – to break it down even more – 12 days a year spent in a car.

While those drivers are focused on driving, their passengers may be looking for something to grab their attention. When it comes to grabbing and holding attention, nothing is more effective than billboards. The Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA) says more than 95 percent of Americans are reached by media targeting vehicle drivers and passengers. And, check this out – the American Trucking Association recently found that 90-plus percent of respondents to a recent survey noticed images wrapped on vehicles. Furthermore, more than 95 percent of people who see a branded vehicle wrap remember what they saw.

Vehicle wraps work! And SpeedPro Imaging, the nation’s leading provider for vehicle wraps, specializes in high-quality, high-impact, and low-maintenance vehicle wraps. If you’re an owner of a business car and/or a fleet of vehicles, we urge you to call your local SpeedPro Imaging studio. Vehicle wraps offer:

  • Lowest cost per advertising impression among outdoor advertising media
  • Largest return on investment

Look at this report the OAAA released earlier this year. It is preparing for the incoming wave of driverless vehicles. Imagine the power of mobile advertising, when people are no longer distracted by driving! Unlike stationary billboards, vehicle wraps offer the advantage of mobility. You can strategically target specific demographic groups, including by routes and zip codes. You’re only limited to your imagination and the size of your gas tank.

Let’s not forget how vehicle wraps serve as a force field for your fleet’s paint job. Most of you have a form of shield protection on your mobile phones. Vehicle wraps operate in the same fashion. Wraps protect a car’s paint from debris, rocks and other items that always seem to leave a scratch. In turn, when you prepare to resell your vehicle, the vehicle wrap has protected its value.

Your fleet is ready to go to work. Let SpeedPro Imaging help convert it into a marvelous work of art. An investment in a vehicle wrap allows your business, large or small, to bring awareness to your brand for a significantly lower cost compared to other forms of advertisements.

Don’t take it from us – take it from a few of our satisfied customers:

Sal DeMartinis, Jr. – Co-owner, Planet Fitness

“John Barber and SpeedPro Imaging’s process for printing vehicle wraps is far superior to any other vendor I’ve worked with. My vehicles just pop! The colors are brighter and the detail is fantastic, it’s just night and day.  It’s so good I just want to go back and re-wrap my other vehicles. SpeedPro Imaging has been a great partner, I couldn’t be happier with John and the SpeedPro team.”

Melissa Thompson – Customer Service Supervisor, Enterprise Fleet Management

“There are a lot of moving parts to managing our customers’ fleets. Dan and SpeedPro Imaging make the vehicle wrapping process very easy. The quality is excellent; we don’t get any complaints from customers telling us the signage is peeling, bubbling or needs to be replaced. On the off chance something does go wrong, SpeedPro will fix it. As a result, we really enjoy partnering with SpeedPro for our customers’ vehicle wrapping needs.”

Jason Marquis – President, NPL Homecare, Inc.

“Vehicle wraps provide the best bang for my advertising buck and SpeedPro Imaging makes the entire process easy for me. I looked and shopped around at other places as part of my due diligence and quickly determined SpeedPro Imaging had the best value. I think their vehicle wraps are of excellent quality. SpeedPro Imaging has a good eye for the colors and the graphics to not make it too busy but enough to draw attention.”

Cost-Effective Vehicle Wraps – the #1 Marketing Tool for Service-Based Businesses

Return-on-Investment – (ROI) – the acronym that sends many marketers into a tailspin when clients ask for it.   That’s not the case at SpeedPro, particularly when it comes to cost-effective vehicle wraps – the fastest growing marketing tool available in today’s world for service-based business owners.

Speaking of ROI and metrics, the industry growth numbers speak for themselves when it comes to the impact cost-effective vehicle wraps are creating for local business owners.   Consider:

According to Traffic Audit Bureau for Media Measurement (TAB), vehicle wraps generate 30,000 to 70,000 views per day and revenues for the US Auto Wrap market are expected to explode in the next six years – rising from $480 million in 2016 to $1.3 billion in 2022.

Vehicle wraps generate up to 70,000 impressions per day.

  • 97% of drivers remember ads on commercial vehicles (Only 19% remember billboards)
  • 48% of drivers view vehicle wraps as the most unique form of advertising
  • 27% of drivers buy products and services based on a company’s commercial graphics
