Challenge

Club Pilates’ Marketing Director, Claudia, explained: "As an initially very scrappy young start-up, we had a proprietary process where we could print addresses and names onto pre-existing material, but the owners weren’t allowed to move or reposition any elements, so it was very static. It wasn't giving our owners enough ability to move things around, change, and adapt to their needs."


 

Not only was their system difficult to work with and unable to offer the company much flexibility—it also frequently broke. When this happened, the Claudia would have to create every piece of content by hand for months. Clearly, something had to give.

Solution

Today, Club Pilates imports their Adobe InDesign files into Lucidpress to simplify the design process for franchisees. The creative team designs professional templates, lock down the brand, then grant access to franchisees who use the templates in their marketing. 


 

Franchise owners love how simple and quick it is to customize their own content based on the branded templates provided for them. Some franchise owners, who are more familiar with design, are even making their own templates from scratch using the brand's pre-set colors, logos & fonts.

 

Club Pilates' creative team & franchise owners use Lucidpress to create all of their printed materials: postcards, flyers, posters, business cards, class schedules and more. They also use digital templates to create high-quality social media posts that promote their studios across the country.
