Speedpro Imaging Irving Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary




Speedpro Imaging Irving, a large format printing studio based in Las Colinas, celebrates its 10 year anniversary in 2016. Speedpro Imaging has modernized the term “print studio,” offering innovative digital printing services such as window vinyl, wall graphics, vehicle wraps, and trade show displays.

David Ostermann had 16 years of telecommunications experience under his belt when he launched Speedpro Imaging Irving. He switched career paths after the “dotcom bubble” and after 9/11 when he noticed that many businesses were fighting to stay afloat. In 2006, he joined Speedpro and in 2007, he had the exciting opportunity to bring his wife Cherie into the business. They both share business responsibilities and have paved the way for other married couples who are thinking about owning a Speedpro franchise together.

In 2006, the Ostermanns launched the 7th franchise in the United States. Today, there are close to 125 different Speedpro franchisees. They liked the idea of the Speedpro franchise because it’s made up of other like-minded past corporate executives and they offer support and research for development. However, they also wanted something that was flexible. “Speedpro was a young franchise when we joined. We wanted to be part of a franchise that would allow us to grow in the direction that we chose,” David says.

A decade of business with local & national corporations, nonprofits, architects & design firms helped make Speedpro Imaging Irving one of the top Speedpro Franchises in the United States.

In 2007 & 2008, when many businesses were struggling because of the recession, Speedpro Imaging Irving was experiencing exponential growth. By 2009, they finished in the top three franchises nationwide. “We were experiencing a 30% growth from year to year, even through the recession. That’s when we knew that something was right and that we were onto something special.” In 2013, they were announced as the Speedpro Franchise of the Year, the top gross revenue franchise in the nation.

Speedpro Imaging Irving’s track record of success and profitability is due to its focus on customer service and its ability to adapt. They knew that treating their clients with priority would separate them from their competitors. They also succeeded at identifying “key accounts.” Where many competitors go after small businesses, David & Cherie secured large/complex accounts that they have been able to sustain throughout the years.


Now that their business has reached maturity, they are able to give back to the community. “We are a major sponsor of Catholic Charities and their large format needs. They were one of our largest accounts in the early days and it’s a great feeling to be in a position to give back,” David says. The Catholic Charities lets them know what they need throughout the year, such as vehicle graphics, interior graphics or event signage and Speedpro provides it as a donation.

Their hope for the future is to continue to grow and be the company that architects & design agencies can turn to when they need to utilize commercial environmental graphics. This market segment has produced over 40% of their revenue the past few years.

Speedpro Imaging Irving has updated their logo to commemorate their 10 year anniversary, which they will use throughout 2016. They will also offer a series of discounts that will be announced through email and posted on their social media sites in the coming weeks.
