Making An Imprint On Abbotsford

Submitted. Instant Imprints, North America’s innovative franchise network of promotional products and sign retail centres, has an Abbotsford location at 197S McCallum Road in Abbotsford. Ideally situated in Abbotsford with easy access from the highway and across from the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre, the new Instant Imprints centre is in prime position to partner with many of the local businesses and organizations in Abbotsford.

The entrepreneurially spirited duo of Dwight Strauss and Jordan Maryniuk bring the first Instant Imprints to town to help local business owners, management teams, schools and community groups promote their organizations with innovative marketing solutions. Instant Imprints blends multiple industries into one single business-to-business retail centre that offers embroidery, screen printing, heat transfers, signs and banners, digital and wide format printing, and promotional products.

“Jordan and I have been entrepreneurs since we were young. Once we met about eight years ago and became friends, we knew we wanted to open a business together,” said Strauss. “After doing our due diligence and determining what business lines up best with our skills, we knew Instant Imprints was the perfect fit. Jordan and I each bring a set of unique strengths that will help propel our business to the next level.”

Strauss and Maryniuk’s opening continues Instant Imprints’ surge of momentum in British Columbia. Already home to the most Instant Imprints centres in North America, additional units will open in the months ahead, bringing the total to eleven in the region.

Maryniuk, who played collegiate basketball for Trinity Western University, will incorporate his wife Shelby in the business. She is an accomplished graphic designer and will help with the day-to-day operations of the business.

“We have all the trust in the world that Dwight and Jordan will represent Instant Imprints extremely well in Abbotsford,” said Ralph Askar, who heads the franchisor’s operations for Instant Imprints as the president and CEO of the company. “They have tremendous business experience and have been successful entrepreneurs since they were young. We are thrilled to have the duo as part of the Instant Imprints family.”

As part of the Instant Imprints business model, franchise owners, such as Strauss and Maryniuk have the support of the company’s experienced leadership team from start to finish.
