Our network of nearly 300 like-minded business franchise owners is actively engaged in the sharing of resources. With the support of AlphaGraphics expert corporate staff and each other, franchisees across the AlphaGraphics network saw strong growth in 2019 with average gross sales of nearly $1.2 million. A very scalable business-to-business model, community involved, and consultative services approach. As cities across America re-open for business, investing in your future and owning an AlphaGraphics print and marketing franchise could be an exceptional opportunity. And that’s working decent hours in a business-to-business consultant’s role, with virtually unlimited potential — an entrepreneurial franchise opportunity like owning an AlphaGraphics printing and marketing franchise in a proven model that’s exceptionally well-positioned for the future. But don’t just take our word for it.


After successfully building the company’s operating systems into a successful and profitable business model, AlphaGraphics began business franchise opportunities in 1979. In 1984, the company became the first desktop publishing retailer. By the late 80s, AlphaGraphics was aggressively pursuing the global marketplace, becoming the first U.S. printing franchise to expand internationally.

In 2018, the company moved its headquarters to Lakewood, CO from Salt Lake City, Utah. Today, there are almost 300 AlphaGraphics franchise businesses located in the United States, Brazil, China, Cyprus, Hong Kong, Mexico, Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom with more printing franchise opportunities starting up everywhere.


The AlphaGraphics Franchise Opportunity continues to be a leading program for entrepreneurs interested in franchises for sale in the print & marketing space. Through nearly five decades of franchising and building the strongest Network of Business Centers in America, we have learned what it really takes to get started with print business opportunities at AlphaGraphics.

In today’s digital/web-based environment we utilize the latest in technologies in marketing to drive leads to you and your customer’s business. You do not need to lease a huge space, purchase and maintain lots of equipment, or even have multiple employees to handle daily operations with a print franchise business opportunity. In fact, this pathway mindset is one that directly refutes these assumptions.

Our latest new center design represents the lowest possible investment with the highest possible return – a winning combination for new Business Center Owners.


Our Real Estate department will assist in finding the right location for your market and budget.  Typical square footage is between 1,600 and 2,400 square feet to start.  From there, we’ll space plan your new center fitted with our well researched and tested equipment package designed for optimum workflow efficiency.  Your Business Center will be uniquely yours and designed for full control over your growth and profitability.
