About Instant Imprints

At Instant Imprints, we have transformed the apparel, sign and promotional products industries by combining multiple businesses into one efficient business model. Our customers come to us when they want their businesses, schools, organizations or groups to be more visible to their customers, students, users or members. Our centers create that visibility in five different ways: branded apparel, signs & banners, custom t-shirts, promotional items and print services.

Values & History

Instant Imprints began franchising in 2002. CEO Ralph Askar and a group of shareholders first purchased the master license for Instant Imprints Canada, then purchased the balance of Instant Imprints in May of 2011. With over 28 years of hands-on franchising experience, it brings to Instant Imprints a proven record of accomplishments as one of Mail Boxes Etc. and The UPS Store's most successful multiple area franchisees and multiple international master licensees.

Our leadership team possesses more than 200 years of combined retail management and franchising experience. With this proven record of business success and experience, we apply our franchising knowledge to guide Instant Imprints to similar success.
