Must-Have Prints for a Successful Business Grand Opening

Must-Have Prints for a Successful Business Grand Opening

Despite their name, small businesses make a big impact!

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, the 28 million small businesses in America account for more than half (54 percent) of all U.S. sales. With so much riding on their success, it’s natural for business owners to want to make a lasting impression during a grand opening. And when it comes to a business’ grand opening print needs, FedEx Office is the expert to turn to.


From large and splashy installations on the front of a building to smaller in-store, display-sized options, banners are one of the most cost-effective ways to draw attention during a grand opening.

A larger outdoor banner on the front of a building ensures grand opening guests know exactly where to come for all of the festivities, especially with the vivid, full-color printing FedEx Office offers. With a lifespan lasting up to six months, short-term outdoor banners serve as a beacon for patrons and can be laminated to be weather-resistant and waterproof. Smaller banner dimensions (starting at 2’x4’) are ideal for smaller window signage or to draw guests’ eyes to specific areas business owners would like to showcase. Use long-term outdoor banners, which can last up to three years, to attract attention beyond your grand opening.

Unsure what type of banners you need? No worries–FedEx Office locations can help you simplify your options.


When it comes to customized printing for a small-business grand opening, flyers are a for sure bet.

Business flyers are a cost-effective way to put all of your business information on a single page, or you can use a 2-sided flyer to add product or service information on the other side. With full-, half- or even quarter-sized flyer prints available, small-business owners can definitely maximize their flyer budget. FedEx Office team members can help you choose the right paper weight and color based on your design or use, and can even make your logo or images pop with metallic ink or high-gloss UV coating options. Most flyer printing orders are ready within 24 hours and flyers can conveniently be ordered online–a bonus for busy small-business owners ramping up for a grand opening.

And for owners who haven’t had time to work out the details – yet alone design a flyer – FedEx Office offers easy-to-use online templates and in-store Design Services.
