any Signworld owner and they will tell you they are not a signmaker.
A Signworld owner hires signmakers. They joined Signworld because it is a professional,
B2B business with reasonable hours, low investment and minimal staffing requirements.
Signworld is one of the fastest growing organizations in a multi billion-dollar
industry. Companies of every type and every size use signs, and the vast majority
of those are disposable. 99% of all signs are indoors, not outdoors. The average
life of a sign is less than 30 days. A large majority of retailers change their
signs every month.
Signworld serves 100% of the sign industry requirements anything from
paper signs to vehicle wraps to large outdoor signs. It is a business that thrives
on repeat customers and the ability to grow accounts within large corporate
clients or retail chains. Signworlds are commercial sign companies which service
customers such as: Subway, Great Clips, Ford Motor, Hewlett-Packard, and Coca-Cola,
all who need large quantities of signs every month.
Many Signworld owners begin their operation in 1200-1500 square feet of either
an industrial or strip center, and migrate to an expanded office park or light
industrial location after just a few years. Ultimately, 90% of revenue is generated
by a small number of large corporate and commercial clients usually around
10 to 30 customers.
Signworld is not a franchise thus there are No Royalties and No Rules
usually associated with such business models.
While Signworld owners run their business the way they want to, they benefit
from one of the most comprehensive programs of training and ongoing support
in the industry. Beyond initial training, each owner has a Signworld business
coach who provides weekly guidance and assistance over a 2-year period. Signworld
owners also enjoy ongoing peer-to-peer support through communication with their
fellow Signworld owners to share ideas on sales, marketing, production and other
aspects of the business. We have people from all types of backgrounds - from
truck drivers and bankers to nurses and CPS's - who succeeded with only 1 location
