This easily run business in a main street location that has been trading with the present owners for the last 3 and half years, however the premises have been a sign & print shop for the last 14 years. Run as a “One Stop Shop” for Signs, Banners & vehicle sign writing, with all in-house up to date digital equipment for doing the afore mentioned.
T shirt printing, is done in-house with all the equipment to enable a quick turnover for Hen or Stag night's, sports wear, one-offs etc, currently generating an average of 100% mark-up (embroidery and screen printing for longer runs are currently contracted out, however this could easily be done in-house, therefore increasing profit margins)
A full printing service consisting of the complete range of Lithograph & Digital services is also offered, this is also contracted out, with a healthy average 60% mark-up. We offer everything from a few business cards up to larger Brochure runs, and everything in between.
The business is presently staffed by two directors, it is run very much to suit their lifestyle, trading hours currently are: Monday to Thursday 9am to 5.30 and Friday 9am to 3pm with Saturday Closed, and therefore another opportunity to increase sales could be gained by an increase in opening times.
No vehicle is required due to the fact that delivery and fitting of signs is subcontracted out, this could be again done in-house therefore again increasing the turnover of the business.
PREMISES, the shop benefits from being in a main street location wit a large double fronted window display area, on street parking with private parking to the rear, it’s a labyrinth of rooms offering a versatile working area consisting of a large shop display area a office, 3 workshop areas, a storage area, small kitchen and toilet. Rent at present is very affordable at only £5,400 Per annum and the lease being flexible with terms to be agreed.
The busy location of the business allows the business to be run with the minimum of advertising costs using just yellow pages and a website, full potential has far from been met, turnover again could be increased from a proactive attitude to marketing.
This business is reluctantly for sale due to health issues of one of the directors. An assisted handover with training is available if required. The existing customer base including all contact details have been recorded.
Asking price: £60,000
