LexJet Keeps Things Lively at The UPS Store Convention

The UPS Store hosted 1,700 of its franchisees on Aug. 11 in Nashville for its bi-annual The UPS Store Convention. The focus of the event was helping The UPS Store franchisees learn how to better serve small businesses in their communities. As a preferred vendor and partner, we had the pleasure of exhibiting during the show.

The LexJet team manned a lively booth with GOframe canvas wrap and Canon PRO-series printer demonstrations throughout the day. “The presence of the Canon PRO-6000S in our booth was a huge hit,” says LexJet’s Vince Bejar. “We generated a ton of interest with UPS Stores that aren’t currently printing wide-format.”

Canon offers several new models with the PRO-series line, and the Canon PRO4000S drew a lot of interest, as it’s ideal for most UPS Store configurations. Bringing a wide-format printer in-house allows The UPS Stores to offer a variety of services to their customers, such as banners, posters, yard signs, custom canvas wraps and much more.

Things got really exciting when our team pulled the name of the winner of our booth’s Canon PRO-6000S printer, which went to Lynne Lee from The UPS Store 2459 in Springfield, Mo. Congrats to Lynne and her team for scoring the new printer, valued at $9,995!

Take a look at the video above to see all the action. If you have questions about how LexJet can support your franchisees, give us a call at 800-453-9538.
