Alliance Franchise Brands announced today that its print, mail and marketing brand, Allegra Marketing Print Mail, and its signs and graphics concept, Image360, have been named to the 2020 Printing Impressions 350 list.
This year’s ranking, coined “The Covid-19 Edition,” is considered the world’s most prestigious and comprehensive ranking of the largest printing companies in the United States and Canada. Solidifying the brands’ extensive reach and market share, Image360 and Allegra collectively ranked at #15 or within the top 5 percent of largest printing companies in North America.
“It’s such an honor to be recognized by Printing Impressions with this industry-leading ranking,” said Mike Cline, Chief Development Officer for Alliance Franchise Brands. "Last year was a year full of uncertainty, but both our Image360 and Allegra franchise members remained agile and innovative, driving new streams of revenue for both concepts. This recognition proves our reputation within the industry and we’re excited to start off 2021 ranked among the most powerful printing companies across the continent.”
The key factors that go into the Printing Impressions 350 list evaluation include most recent and previous fiscal year sales figures; percentage change in annual sales; primary product specialties; principal officer(s); number of employees and manufacturing plants; as well as the firm’s total range of in-house sheetfed and webfed digital and conventional printing process capabilities.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Allegra and Image360 have provided support for local businesses by offering signage for reopening guidelines and added pandemic safety measures, producing face shields and other personal protective equipment or giving expert advice for businesses to communicate changes with customers and employees.
Image360 provides high quality professional graphic solutions to regional businesses and organizations. From the simplest projects to the most complex, trained graphics specialists work closely with clients to maximize the creativity and visual impact of environmental graphics, mobile graphics, way-finding solutions and trade show displays and retail signage.
Allegra is a full-service marketing communications provider offering advanced printing technologies, including full-color offset and digital printing, personalized printing capabilities and mailing services.

Both brands are comprised of independently owned and operated franchises that provide national, regional and local businesses and organizations with a one-stop resource for technologically advanced solutions for their printing, marketing and graphics communications.
As the Image360 and Allegra brands expand in North America, both brands are actively seeking qualified franchise prospects. Alliance offers prospective franchise members for Allegra and Image360 three avenues to ownership: new ownership, conversion of an independent existing signage or print business to an Image360 or Allegra center, or the addition of an Allegra or Image360 center to a print or any other industry-related business to expand service offerings. Each option is specifically tailored to allow qualified entrepreneurs to enter a stable, steadily growing industry with a business-focused concept that provides the ability to make a true impact on clients.
