PostNet Franchise Delivers on Strong Demand for Holiday Season Printing and Shipping
The nation’s premier printing, marketing and shipping franchise is the local partner communities depend on during the bustling holiday season
The holiday season is fast approaching and PostNet franchise owners around the nation are looking forward to their busiest time of year. The long lines of family members waiting to ship their loved ones presents amounts to a 60% increase in top-line sales in December for the average PostNet center.
The reason for PostNet’s phenomenal sales increase during the Holiday season is because of the variety of options that customers can choose from to meet their needs: PostNet customers can ship packages across the globe via FedEx, UPS, DHL and the U.S. Postal Service. PostNet also gives customers the ability to compare shipping rates and delivery guarantees between all major carriers and choose the option that’s right for them.
“The majority of my shipping customers in December are grandparents,” says Rick Groves, owner of a PostNet franchise in Auburn, Indiana. “Since shipping has gotten more expensive, people are mailing gift cards to their children. But for the grandchildren? They still want to send something personal. We mail a ton of toys and treats to children all across America in December. Our business doubles. We make twice as much revenue in December than we do in any other month of the year.”
While many of PostNet customers visit their local center to solve their shipping needs, PostNet franchise owners are also busy delivering print products for their local small business owners as well. Here is a sample of some of the products we print for small business customers during the holidays:
- Holiday Party Invitations
- Custom Greeting Cards
- Custom Calendars
- Unique Branded Gifts
PostNet franchise owners are meaningful members of their communities during the holiday season and all year long
After 23 years in business, PostNet has evolved into one of the most unique franchise opportunities in the booming printing, marketing and shipping segments. PostNet is a local partner for small businesses across the country and around the world.
With Forbes reporting that approximately 543,000 new businesses get started each month, small businesses rely on PostNet’s ability to offer a full menu of services, including full-service printing and finishing services, direct mail services, graphic design services, and ancillary business services, like private mailbox rental and more. Unlike traditional postal and mailbox franchises, PostNet has strategic partnerships with all of the major logistics companies — UPS, FedEx, U.S. Postal Service and DHL — offering a multi-carrier selection, coupled with in-center professional packaging services to meet the shipping needs of our customers.
Each PostNet location is owned and operated by a local business owner, which means we understand first-hand the day-to-day challenges small business owners face and are personally invested in the local partnerships we serve. We are a local business partner that truly cares about our customer’s success by delivering the right solutions that meet their printing, shipping and marketing needs.
“We really are our small business community’s local partner for marketing services solutions,” says Sharon Foster, co-owner of a PostNet franchise in Charleston, South Carolina. “Businesses of all types come to us for help, advice and high-quality work. They are usually amazed at what we can do for them. We do menus, fliers, you name it. We even help our small business owners with their marketing budgets. We get very involved, we establish relationships with our customers and keep track of their successes. If they thrive, so do we. It might sound like common sense, but as a small business owner, the best way for us to advertise is to make sure that every customer leaves us with a smile. If they do, not only will they come back, but they will also tell their friends about us.”
