We know that you have a variety of options when it comes to starting your own business. You have the option to start your own business from the ground up with the sense of pride and satisfaction that you created your own business. If you have decided that there are many more benefits to investing in a profitable franchise opportunity, we know that we are not the only print, sign, and advertising franchise that you can select from. However, at Sign Me Up Franchise, we are proud of the products and services we offer and we think our current franchisees will agree, that we offer the biggest bang for your buck!

Sign Me Up Vs. The Other Guys

There are several national sign and advertising franchise companies that you could choose to franchise with, so, what makes Sign Me Up the better franchise opportunity? Let’s make some side-by-side comparisons.

Franchise Fee

Every franchise requires a franchise fee in exchange for inclusion in everything the brand has to offer — brand, logo, proprietary information, patents, and trademarks. Sign Me Up is proud to boast the lowest franchise fee in the industry, by almost $9,000 less than the industry average! Sign Me Up also offers several franchise fee discounts including a Veteran discount for prior military members and a conversion discount for those business owners who already own a print or sign shop and become part of the Sign Me Up team.

Liquid Capital Requirements

Liquid capital is what a franchise requires for you to have on hand or in readily convertible assets. The higher the liquid capital requirements, the lower the risk to the franchise company. While many franchises have high liquid capital requirements, Sign Me Up has one of the lowest in the industry. This is because we are confident that your new business will be successful.


Royalties are the on-going payments that a franchisee makes to the franchise for use of brand, logo, proprietary rights, patents, and trademark. In the sign industry, the average royalty charge is upwards of eight percent. However, at Sign Me Up, we are proud to offer, again, the industry’s lowest fees! We have a scaling royalty program, based on sales and profits that allow you to save more as you make more.

Net Worth Requirements

Net worth is your assets minus liabilities. Many franchise companies require your net worth to be higher than the value of your company, in the event that your business doesn’t succeed. Once again, Sign Me Up offers the lowest requirement in the industry, because we are that confident in your success.

Various Franchise Options

At many franchises, when you become a business owner, you are required to open and operate your business in the manner that the franchise dictates. However, at Sign Me Up, we understand that our business owners have different interests and strengths, and seek to honor that by providing a variety of franchise options including a variety of business models.
Conversion Model
Lite Model 
Retail Model
Fabrication Model

Territories Available

Open a Sign Me Up store where you are and not where you are told to! Many franchises offer location startups that are limited to areas that they have pre-designated as desirable. At Sign Me Up, we encourage our business owners to open a shop in their own neighborhood.

Sign Fabrication

Sign Me Up has our own fabrication location that produces all of our signs. You can even own and operate one of our fabrication locations! By operating our own sign fabrication centers, Sign Me Up can offer consistency and lower prices to our business owners and their clients.

Why Franchise Instead of Starting Your Own Business

Or Convert Your Existing Business to a Franchise

If you have discovered the many amazing opportunities available in the print, sign, and advertising industry, you already know that even in a digital world, the sign industry is booming more than ever! Emerging technologies have led to the creation of new sign design and fabrication options that have been able to keep up with the digital market. If you are interested in breaking into the sign business, or you already own a print or sign shop, franchising may be a better financial choice than starting your own business.

Recognized, Reputable Brand

One of the biggest benefits of franchising with an established company is that the corporate franchise has already done the legwork to build out the business and establish a trusted brand. When you become a business owner within a franchise, you have all the rights to the brand, logo, trademarks, patents or designs, and any proprietary information. Your customers will recognize the brand and logo and choose to visit your business because they know it as a reputable business model.

Collaboration and Support

The franchisor-franchisee relationship is an ongoing one. When you start your own business, you are on your own to run the business, which means diagnosing and correcting any shortcomings will be your responsibility. This may pose a problem when you are not entirely sure what the problem is or how to go about correcting it. When you franchise, you get the continued backing and support of the corporate company, because your success is their success.

On-going Training

At Sign Me Up, we offer four weeks of industry training, so that no matter where you are in your sign business career, you will be equipped with all the knowledge and skills required to operate and manage a successful print, sign, and advertising business. If you don’t feel ready, or you have questions as you go, the franchise company is always available to provide the knowledge and resources you need to succeed.

At Sign Me Up Franchise, we have a variety of locations and business model options to choose from. If you are interested in becoming a business owner and joining a successful team, contact us for profitable franchise opportunities today!
