Signage, Graphics and Print Communications Drive Back to Business Strategies.

PLYMOUTH, Mich. — As more in-person businesses across North America plan or begin to reopen, Alliance Franchise Brands LLC and its family of marketing, print, sign and graphics brands (Allegra Marketing Print Mail, Image360, KKP, Signs By Tomorrow, Signs Now, Insty-Prints and American Speedy Printing Centers) are at the forefront of guiding business owners to navigate their new normal with health and safety solutions and resources.

Independently owned and operated franchise locations are working directly with local businesses to outfit their physical space, prepare employees, and get ready for the return of customers and visitors with safety signs, social distancing graphics, sneeze guards and shields, outdoor promotional banners and more.  

“Companies of all sizes are eager to get back to business and want to do it safely, being mindful of government regulations that may be federal and local,” said Alliance Franchise Brands CEO Mike Marcantonio.

“Our franchise members have always been strong partners in their business communities,” he continued. “Medical practices, retail stores, financial institutions, office buildings and restaurants are just a few of the business settings that need to reassure their customers and visitors with health and safety policies that are visible, primarily through signs and large graphics.”

Image360 franchise owner Jon Osborne, based in Mokena, Ill., concurs. “Businesses come to us because they may not know the most professional way to leverage visual communications as they reopen. For example, some well-intentioned DIY solutions, like using regular tape to hold down floor graphics, can result in peeling which creates a tripping hazard and attracts bacteria. That’s why we have packaged some materials, based on common business needs, and do custom packages, too. All can be professionally installed.”

Perry Clark, franchise owner of Allegra Marketing Print Mail in Winston-Salem, N.C, has used the time as an essential business to support clients throughout their mandated closures. “We did our best to go above and beyond to help keep our local business community running, like offering free banners and signs to local restaurants and producing PPE. Because of that consistency in a time of crisis, our clients know they can trust us and that we’ll continue to guide them as they reopen.”

Allegra Marketing Print Mail Teams with the American Red Cross for #MissingType Campaign

2019-06-12T12:11:57-04:00June 12th, 2019|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

PLYMOUTH, Mich. — To extend awareness of the need for blood donations, Allegra Marketing Print Mail is backing the annual American Red Cross Missing Types campaign. From June 11 – 30, sponsors are seeking new blood donors and encouraging past givers to “roll up their sleeves” and help meet the critical need for blood donations.

Summer is one of the most challenging times of the year for the Red Cross to collect blood and platelet donations with schools that host blood drives on break and many people enjoying vacation and other seasonal activities. Yet patients don’t get a vacation from needing lifesaving blood during the summer months. Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood, and it can only come from volunteer donors. Blood and platelets are needed for accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer or sickle cell disease.

New and current donors can do their important part to help fill in the missing types and ensure blood is available for patients in need. Visit to locate a blood drive location near you or make a monetary donation.

“The campaign draws attention to the ‘missing’ blood types by removing the letters A, B and O from brands’ logos, websites and social media pages,” said Jessica Eng, vice president of Marketing for Allegra Network. “We’re pleased to be a part of this important initiative that fulfills a critical need in communities across the country where our franchise owners live and work. Giving back is part of being a values-driven organization, and this is a perfect fit.”

Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood, according to the Red Cross. Survey data shows that about 45 percent of people know someone who’s been impacted by a blood transfusion, but only 3 percent of the U.S. population donates.
