Signs Now Names Oce Supplier of Choice
For wide-format scanners, printers, and photo imagers
Signs Now has signed an agreement with Oce to provide display-graphics printing equipment, financing, service, and support to all 220 Signs Now franchisees in the US. The agreement enables Signs Now franchisees to benefit from nationally negotiated pricing on all Oce Display Graphics products, including the Oce Arizona line of solvent-based piezo inkjet printers, the Oce CS5000 aqueous thermal inkjet printers, Oce CS4000 wide-format color scanners, the Oce LightJet family of photo imagers, and Onyx Graphics software. Franchisees can trade-up to higher-capacity equipment as their print volumes grow.
The arrangement also gives franchisees streamlined access to the marketing materials, education and training, and imaging supplies available from Oce. Rick Baragar, director of research and development at Signs Now, calls it "A complete turnkey solution for Signs Now and all of our franchisees." Randy Corona, vice-president of operations at Signs Now, says franchisees have asked for such a package, and "We're pleased to offer it." (Signs Now: www.signsnow.com)
