Embroidery has been around for hundreds of years; but until Fully Promoted, it was difficult to find a store with specialists who had the expertise to serve as Your Promotional Marketing Partners.  Fully Promoted’s Resource Center provides a one-stop location that can handle all your custom embroidery, screen printing, and promotional product needs. Before Fully Promoted, it was hard to find one place that could provide all of those services with expertise, customization and professionalism.  This reality intrigued franchising veteran Ray Titus, who realized that the $20 billion embroidery industry could use some of the same expertise and initiative he had already applied to building SIGNARAMA, the world's largest sign franchise with more than 700 locations in 37 countries.

In 2000, Mr. Titus opened the first Fully Promoted store in West Palm Beach, Florida, with a full-service resource center that combined a wide variety of apparel and promotional items. It was an immediate success.

Since then, Fully Promoted’s network of entrepreneurs has grown to more than 300 resource centers throughout the United States, Canada and Australia, making it possible for many thousands of organizations and businesses to easily and cost-effectively get the customized apparel and promotional products they need, whether it is on a local, national or global scale.

Today, Fully Promoted is the name people trust for quality embroidery and customized specialty products, not to mention a proven successful franchise ownership opportunity for perspective entrepreneurs who want to explore an exciting business concept.
