FASTSIGNS Owner Expands Solutions with Bantex
Jon Toy, who owns the FASTSIGNS franchise in York, PA, has found that Bantex Digital Media (Booth 1892) can play an essential role in expanding and improving communications solutions even further. Since adopting Bantex Digital Media, Toy has taken the printing of two-sided banners, banner stands and durable outdoor banners to higher levels of quality.
“Bantex provided a great solution for us with double-sided banner applications,” Toy says. “Before we started using two-sided Bantex, we would print two separate banners and put them together, which was a challenge for our production team. With Bantex doubled sided material, we can give our customers a better solution that’s stronger and more versatile and much easier for us to work with.”
Toy has also discovered that Bantex Curl Free 13oz Two Sided is another opportunity to expand his business by using a material ideal for banner stands that are affordable and look great.
“The color we achieve with Bantex Digital Media is phenomenal,” Toy says. “Customers rave about the color.”
Yet another growth opportunity for Toy’s FASTSIGNS franchise has been the Bantex Supreme 18oz Two Sided, which is engineered for outdoor banner applications.
“Before we started using the Bantex 18 ounce, we were sending that sort of work to an outside vendor,” he says. “With Bantex Supreme we’ve been able to bring that work back in-house, which is great for us and for our customers.”
Toy also improved vinyl banner print production efficiency and throughput by using Bantex.
“Some of the other materials we’ve worked with get damaged during shipment, but Bantex is shipped in boxes, so when it arrives it’s ready to go on the printer,” he says.
While Toy acknowledges there are less expensive materials for vinyl banners and signs, he finds the investment in Bantex is worthwhile in helping grow his business and provide his customers with high quality communication solutions to grow their businesses.
“Everyone can sell you something cheaper, but we want to offer quality that lasts — the visual solution that really meets our customers’ needs,” he says. “With our business, we look for quality in the materials we use, not just for products that are pushed based only on a lower price. We’re here to help our customers grow their businesses, and with Bantex we can do that.”
