A flexible, home-based business opportunity

The brainchild of mother-of-two Maija Pykett, Smallprint is the original silver keepsake company. Her beautiful and highly emotive products capture a moment in time. Through franchising, the Smallprint experience has touched many thousands of customers, while providing mums (in particular) with a flexible, home-based business opportunity.

Smallprint launched its first franchise in September 2006. Today, it numbers some 100 franchisees across five continents. The brand has grown to include a bereavement sub brand (Memory Treasures) and a separate pet brand (Silver Pet Prints). There are many business development opportunities, with a typical franchisee founding their business with their immediate network of friends, family and local community and expanding to develop a variety of business-to-consumer and business-to-business opportunities in their exclusive territory. Retailers, venues, hospitals, hospices and funeral service providers are just some examples of relevant business development opportunities.

The franchise package

The franchise package (investment fee: £15,000) is turnkey, including all of the kit and equipment required to start the business from day one, as well as raw materials to make sales of over £2000. All sent securely and safely by courier, so it doesn’t matter where you live right now!

From the comprehensive training course (provided remotely through a serious of screen-based tutorials) to life as a franchisee, the system enables franchisees to focus on marketing. A website, marketing collateral designs, social media templates/images are all provided, while franchisees also share experiences (positive and negative!) through Smallprint’s dedicated, closed Facebook forum.

Our business is based on professionalism and quality, both in the way we interact with customers and our relationship with our franchisees. We believe in delivering an exceptional customer experience based around family values.

Smallprint is looking for people, whatever their background, with the drive and enthusiasm to build and operate a friendly, professional service.

You do not require a background in making jewellery or artisanal experience. Your earnings potential will vary, depending on the time you put into your business, though we recommend you commit to spending three days of your week, minimum, in developing and running your franchise.

Franchisees working full time can expect sales in excess of £50,000 pa. We have franchisees who have been in the network for over 10 years, who continue to see growth in their business.
