My local Prontaprint has just shut

    My local Prontaprint has just shut this week, along with a franchise. Not surprised though, large expensive premises in prime locations and unfortunately charging expensive prices to customers to pay for it.

    Take a read of this on my blog:
    Local print companies! | Printing Blog | Print Design Blog > By Stationery Direct

    Businesses are finally starting to realise that they can now get much better prices online without compromising on service and quality. This along with the current recession seems to have been too much for the above companies.

    Come at the right time though, just about to leaflet my local area :icon_biggrin:

    The trick is to be a success online and offline. It's all about reputation.

    We get a vast amount of client referal business. Currently average 2 - 3 new clients every day. Growing like topsy. 90% B2B. Geography knows no bounds.

    more prontaprint closures

    Hi all

    New to the forum so be gentle with me.... ;-)

    Thought I'd add to the discussion.

    Word has it that Prontaprint Ltd are in trouble financially: the share price of their owners (Boundary plc) has plummeted in the last few months.

    Take a look at this link for more details:

    The franchised stores are closing in droves and the same is happening with Kall-Kwik centres.

    Not sure if franchised print shops are the way forward!

    Have a good weekend!
