COLUMBIA, Md., May 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- This year international signage and graphics franchise company Signs Now is celebrating its 30th anniversary. Founded in 1986, Signs Now (a member of the Sign & Graphics Division of Alliance Franchise Brands) is an industry pioneer and leader in professional graphics solutions, providing high-quality sign and graphics products for a diverse, global clientele.
"Over the last 30 years Signs Now has not only grown as a network, but has demonstrated tremendous expertise within an industry that is ever changing," said Division President Ray Palmer. "We have an extremely talented group of franchise members who are constantly innovating and mentoring, and we look forward to seeing what they do over the next 30 years."
To mark this milestone, Signs Now locations across the country will be holding customer promotions and highlighting the talents and history of the Signs Now brand.
"Our loyal customers have made the last 30 years possible," remarked Palmer. "We want to show our appreciation and highlight testimonials and success stories with Signs Now locations across the country."
After just four years in business, Signs Now grew to over 100 locations in 1990. Hitting the international scene, the brand opened its first Canadian location in 1991 and its first U.K. location in 1994. Now with nearly 200 locations across the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, Signs Now continues to grow and innovate. After the acquisition by Allegra Network LLC in 2005 and the inclusion in the formation of Alliance Franchise Brands, Signs Now is a part of one of the world's leading print and graphic communications franchisors.
In addition to a strong network, Signs Now has launched several innovative industry programs that truly set the company apart from the competition. The Signs Now Signature Fund® — a nationwide program designed to help unite and strengthen local communities with the assistance of Signs Now franchise owners — has helped numerous non-profit organizations in regions across the country.
In keeping with the strengthening of and involvement in local markets, in 2011 Signs Now announced the adoption of the Green Initiative, a program promoting the value of "green" sign-making technology among franchise members. And in 2012 Signs Now selected the Electronic Document Scholarship Foundation (EDSF) — an international, non-profit organization dedicated to the document management and communications industries — to administer a yearly $10,000 scholarship program for graphics students.
"We are extremely proud of the diversity of the programs Signs Now has offered over the years," stated Palmer. "And we will continue to put our customers and members first in keeping with the company mission and values."
