New franchise launch

A new franchise business has been launched in print management - The Print Partner. Backed by Yorkshire-based Complete Service Management, The Print Partner utilises a bespoke software system for print ordering and on behalf of large and multi-national operations.

'There is nothing currently out there with this business plan,' says Managing Director Richard Sibley. 'We are not printers and so there is no expensive print machinery required. But we have the benefit of working with a database of tried and tested printers, so we can fulfil complex print requirements on multiple jobs. We manage everything and get the job in on time and budget.'

Over 50 franchise territories have been outlined in the UK and Richard intends to role out a continuous advertising and events campaign to attract people to the concept of print management as a franchise business. 'We provide them with training and support and a package of business benefits,' he continues. 'No print experience is necessary really although we appreciate it may well appeal to those with a print background. Good communicators with a strong work ethic can create a great business from this - I know because I did it.'
