2002 – Insty-Prints Franchise was purchased by the Allegra Network franchise. Allegra Network has different levels of franchises which gave a few qualifying Insty-Prints an opportunity to change their company name to Allegra Print and Imaging. Because of the continued sales growth and profitability of the business, the company became part of the Allegra Network brand and qualified for the highest level of franchising.
