A History of Innovation and Success
From the evolution of hand-painted signs to innovative digital printing, SpeedPro Imaging has remained a leader in the wide-format graphics industry. Our story began when Blair Gran opened the first Speedpro Signs shop in Alberta, Canada. Blair was the product of a sign-making family and combined his family’s reputation for excellence with new technology. His innovative techniques increased productivity and provided customers with more options than ever before.
In 1991, Blair’s model proved so successful that he began franchising the business. By 1996, 30 new locations were open across the Great White North and the SpeedPro brand became synonymous with creative imaging solutions and service that was tailored to businesses. SpeedPro became more than just a vendor for its customers – it became a partner.
In 2001, Blair once again revolutionized his franchise empire by integrating the desktop computer with wide-format, full-color processing. SpeedPro became one of the first major franchises to shift into wide-format image production and away from sign-making. It was also at this time that Blair added “Imaging” to the SpeedPro name, giving it the title we operate under today. This change allowed businesses who had never had access to wide-format printing or imaging to find affordable solutions, creating an entirely new market in which SpeedPro continues to excel to this day.
In 2003, SpeedPro opened its first United States location in the Dallas, Texas market. In 2014, SpeedPro Imaging was acquired by a new ownership group who continues to fuel a drive and passion for success. The franchise continues to expand and grow to this day, now with over 180 locations in the U.S. and Canada.
