Prontaprint are one of the largest networks of franchised printing companies within the UK,
used by both commercial businesses and member of the public.
Sam Panesar owns and runs two such franchises in East London.
In fact his franchises are amongst the top grossing stores in the
UK. His main branch is located along one of the busiest A roads in
London. Many people would think this sounds perfect for passing
trade, however motorists don’t usually see the branch as they
whizz past at 50 mph.
Although this branch is thriving, Sam understands that in business
you can’t rest on your laurels and need to continue to advertise
whilst looking for new ways to gain new customers.
“The good times may not last forever and if you continue to do the
things you have always done then you may not move forward” –
So Sam approached Megaflatables to create something simple
but effective, that would grab motorists attention long before they
pass his branch. He needed something you could see from a
distance away that made it clear, “this is who we are and this is
what we do” – Prontaprint Barking
We took this brief and decided that sometimes the most simple
option is the best, so we used one of our beacon designs and
made a slight twist to incorporate their logo and corporate
At 20 feet high it can be seen from 500 yards away and does
exactly what Sam wanted it to do, but don’t just take our word
for it here is what Sam said;
“ We were so surprised that even though we have been in
the same location for a number of years customers would
walk through the door and tell us that until they had seen the
inflatable they didn’t know we were even here”.
“Two weeks after setting up our Megaflatable we have gained
around 20% more new clients than we would usually expect
to in an average fortnight and in times like these it’s really help
keep the branch in great shape going forward.
I look forward to working with Megaflatables for a very long
time to come”
