The Brand

Copy Express was founded in 2013 after a team, with years of international and local experience, came together to establish the Copy Express Brand. The Copy Express Mission is to provide fast, high quality printing, courier and business services whilst maintaining an exceptional level of customer service standards. Our Vision is to become the preferred supplier for all customers and businesses throughout South Africa who require outsourced signage, courier and business services.

The business model which includes Design + Signage + Courier + Internet Cafe + Printing + Stationery + Business Services = A True One Stop Shop. Outsourcing non-core business needs is an escalating and irreversible trend which makes Copy Express a recession proof business and a good time to be in signage, courier and business services.


Strategic Partnerships:

We recognise the importance of a long term strategic alliances with national and international suppliers and partners of distinction, giving you the edge and credibility of brand recognition and economies of scale.


We advise on the latest cutting edge equipment and provide constant innovation to keep up with industry trends.

Online approach:

We realise that the current level of 30% online printing will only grow and that a user friendly website and strong social media strategy is integral to survive and thrive in this competitive industry.

On-going support:

The Copy Express buying department ensures that you stock only the very best in demand products within the copy/scanning industry.

Spend Less:

The Copy Express dream team has an intimate understanding of the signage, courier and business services industry and has derived ways on how to make the business more profitable than its competitors. We help our franchisees make smart choices with equipment acquisition, reasonable shop rentals and streamline business processes thereby reducing unproductive payroll and stress.


We take a project management approach to launching your franchise including site selection, shop fittings and launch assistance.

Copy Express franchisees receive intensive training in all facets of running the business and we work closely with Curator Business Consulting, a respected independent provider of business mentoring and coaching to all our franchisees. Theoretical training is complemented with practical exposure and it is paramount that Copy Express franchisees work with a launch manager that support and drive the business during the opening stages of their franchise.
