Business Overview:

Large Format Digital Printer on Steroids!
Profitable, growing, international scope
San Francisco Metropolitan Area
$599,000 (see details below)
Calling this a “sign business” would be like calling Dom Perignon “bubbly wine.” Founded over 10 years ago, this business is the epitome of large format digital design and printing in the Bay Area. Their diversified market of 70% commercial clients and 30% residential/design customers—local, nationwide, and international—assures a reliable and sustainable revenue base. With $1.2 million in annual sales, the seller’s discretionary earnings are approximately $180,000, with many avenues for expanded sales and profits.
About 70% of the customer base is “commercial”— large corporations, designers & architects, and small businesses. The needs of these companies are very diverse (outdoor signage, lobby and workspace decoration, vehicle fleet graphics, tradeshows & events displays). Commercial customers typically order several times a year and often on a recurring monthly basis.

The company develops, manufactures and installs prime corporate graphics and business signs. Products include: Wall, Window, & Floor Graphics; Wall Murals; Banners & Flags; Window Films; Vehicle Graphics; Channel Letters; Metal, Wood, & Plastic Signs; ADA & Braille Signs, Tradeshow Signs & Displays; Business Cards & Brochures; Adhesive Signs; etc.

In addition, they provide graphic design, branding, project management, and installation services.

Clients/customers include: Google, ABC Network, Hilton Hotels, Hard Rock Hotels, American Airlines, Hyatt Hotels, Walmart, Bank of America, Kimberly Clark, Dell, BBC Worldwide Americas, Land of the Nod, DIY Network, Best Buy, Land Rover, Saks Fifth Ave, Charlotte Bobcats Basketball, Maxwell, Gerber, Cisco Systems, MTV/Viacom, Levi Strauss, Comcast, Office Max, L'Oreal, AT&T, Verizon, Macy's, Maxmara, Wells Fargo, Make- a-Wish Foundation, Neiman Marcus, Westin Hotels, Kaiser Permanente, General Electric, San Francisco 49ers.

The other 30% of the customer base is “residential/design.” Mainly interested in decorating the different rooms of home and office spaces, the typical customer is female, aged 25-60, and living in the US (85%), Canada (10%), Australia & Europe (5%). These residential/design customers order pre-made wall products directly from the website or by phone, or they commission a custom project and go through a made-to-order process with the graphic designer team for wall products manufactured to their specifications.

Growth potential for a motivated new owner is immense. The company has a database of over 84,000 customer email addresses, just waiting for an aggressive marketing campaign for expanded goods and services. The current owners are relocating to another part of the country for family reasons and, so, have held off on any such extraordinary marketing efforts.

Located in a retail/production facility in the San Francisco metro area (approximately 4,400 square feet, approximately $11,400 monthly rent), the company has the expertise and the equipment to produce most products in house. While current rent is dictated by its “downtown-retail” location, business is not “location-sensitive”; therefore, the facility could easily be moved to less expensive real estate, resulting in no decrease in sales and considerably more profit.

The equipment is all in excellent condition—a complete list and estimated replacement cost value will be available shortly.

Complete historical financial data (tax returns, bank statements, A/R and A/P records, etc.), employee records, current and pending contracts, detailed equipment list, etc. will be provided to serious financially-qualified prospects upon submission of an NDA and preliminary discussion with the seller and broker.
*The transaction. The asking price is $599,000 (approximately 50% of gross annual revenue), plus inventory on hand at time of closing, plus 10% of open contracts at time of closing. All work-in-process will be pro-rated between buyer and seller.
It is anticipated that this will be a sale of all the tangible and intangible assets of the corporation, including the very valuable business name; but, not the corporation itself, nor accounts receivable, accounts payable, rent deposits, or cash on hand. This will also include website(s), phone numbers, customer list, supplier contacts, employment relationships, etc.—the “goodwill” of the business.
