 In Press Release

MISSION VIEJO, Calif., March 21, 2019 – The 2019 Sir Speedy, PIP, Signal Graphics International Vendor Show will be held July 18 and 19, 2019 at the San Antonio Convention Center in San Antonio, TX. Leading companies in the printing, graphic arts, signage, and marketing support industries are invited to exhibit at this annual event. The Vendor Show has sold out the last several years and is expected to do so again this year.

The Vendor Show coincides with the annual Sir Speedy, PIP and Signal Graphics International Convention, which will take place July 17-20. Unlike other industry tradeshows, the Vendor Show has a long history of providing an intimate setting where exhibitors are able to have one-on-one meetings with our printing, signs and marketing services franchisees.

“Previous exhibitors have found that our trade show is highly targeted to their prospects and allows them several opportunities to closely interact with decision makers,” said Kelly Kimberlin, Vice President of Business Development for Franchise Services, Inc., parent company of the Sir Speedy, PIP and Signal Graphics brands. “In particular, we are seeking sign industry vendors as our network has seen an increase in the sign portion of our franchisees’ businesses – 21% over the last four years and 25% last year. Our franchisees are looking to add signage products to their businesses.”

Sir Speedy, PIP, Signal Graphics Vendor Show is the largest of any printing, signs and marketing services franchise company. Companies planning to exhibit include, Xerox, Canon U.S.A., Ricoh, HP, Four51, EFI, Konica Minolta, Duplo and more.

“The Vendor Show is a terrific platform for us to renew relationships with existing franchise owners and develop new ones. It’s also a great environment for us to demonstrate new products and solutions to a large number of franchisees in a relaxed setting,” said John Thomas, National Director, Ricoh USA, Inc.

Three levels of sponsorship are also available for companies interested in maximizing their visibility during the entire Convention. Companies interested in exhibiting should contact Dave Sigafus at 949/348-5112, or Linda Barr at 949/348-5125,, or visit
