Company Overview

The Original Poster Company (OPC) was founded in 1991. OPC design and distribute greeting cards to retailers across the UK and worldwide. Through experience and constant innovation we offer some of the fastest-selling designs in the greeting card industry to local and national retailers. Our business model is based on sale or return, the retailer simply pays for what they sell. This approach is what makes our business so successful, as it establishes trust and goodwill amongst retailers.

Franchise Overview

The OPC franchise network has had complete UK coverage for over 20 years and also operates in various other countries around the world. Some existing territories are now available for resale as franchisees retire or move on to new business opportunities. These franchise resale territories are already established, providing you with an income from day one. Over 90% of franchisees surveyed agreed that OPC’s home-based system gives them the flexibility to enjoy family life.

Training

All new franchisees follow an initial comprehensive training programme with regular ongoing field support from a dedicated business development manager. This provides you with all the support you need to grow your sales and keep overheads low, whilst achieving great profit margins.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

Our franchisees install planned greeting card ranges in independent retail outlets such as card shops, newsagents or post offices, and in national accounts such as convenience store groups. They service these existing customers on a monthly basis to maintain the display by restocking and developing the card ranges. Many of our franchisees operate their OPC franchise from home and use a family-sized car to service their retailers.
