NRL vote of confidence for Sign-A-Rama
GYMPIE'S Sign-A-Rama franchise has the job of printing the pull-up banners for National Rugby League team, Gold Coast Titans.
For the second year running they have produced the banners at the Mellor St premises in time for footy season.
The job came through good advertising, marketing and competitive pricing.
Owner operators, Justin and Kerryn Brown established their original business, Star Club Print & Sign Centre, in 2005.
From there they expanded into sign making and in 2010 secured a deal with Sign-A-Rama to introduce the franchise to Gympie.
With a large portion of the region's businesses on their books and many clients from out of town seeking their services, the Brown's are obviously doing something right.
"It's helpful to be part of the world's largest sign franchise," Justin said.
"Sign-A-Rama has a reputation for producing a top quality product at a competitive price."
Despite the hype surrounding its NRL client, Justin says it is no way near Sign-A-Rama's biggest.
"Our biggest clients are Gympie Regional Realty," he said. "We do bring in a fair bit of work from outside of town.
"We just shipped some signs off to a business in Longreach and we do a bit of work for clients in Gladstone, but the majority of work we do is for clients here in the Gympie region."
Sign-A-Rama was the 2012 winner of the Gympie Chamber of Commerce Micro Business Award and won a Gold Star Achievement Award within the Sign-A-Rama group, also in 2012.
