Joel Libava

January 18, 2013

One of our friends and business partners, Joel Libava (aka the Franchise King), has recently published his first book, Become a Franchise Owner! Joel is a smart and charismatic guy, as well as a fantastic writer. His style is so unique and fun to read. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in franchises and how they work. Even if you’re not necessarily ready or interested in starting a franchise immediately, it is still a good read!

Joel is also one of our Speaking Roses blog referrers. He has taken the opportunity of posting a Speaking Roses graphic on his site that tracks how many people visit our site by clicking on it from his blog. He has also featured us in his site directory as well as one of his newsletters. Every time we close a sale on one of those leads, Joel gets a percentage! Told ya he was a smart guy 🙂

A Special Prom!

December 4, 2012

Hi, my name is Susan and I have a story about how embossed roses changed my experience at my senior prom. My boyfriend in high school was name Ethan. He was a member of the student council and French Honor Society, captain of the varsity soccer team, was always on the honor roll and also worked a full time job.
For the most part, Ethan stayed busy and out of trouble. He was very popular in school and had tons of friends. It was actually hard not to like him! But no matter how hard Ethan tried, my dad just wasn’t his biggest fan. My dad never really liked any of my boyfriends, but for some reason, Ethan was the least favorite so far. I think it was probably because he was my most serious and long term boyfriend I’ve ever had.
When senior prom came around, it was obvious who I would be going with. Still, one day I came home from school to a path of rose petals going from the front door of my house leading back to my room. When I looked closer, I noticed they were not just regular petals; they had a message (in his handwriting!) that said “I Love You, Susan”. I was delighted and excited, and my mom thought it was adorable. But, my dad just scoffed and rolled his eyes as I hurriedly followed the trail of red petals back to my room.
When I opened the door, I was greeted by a room fully decorated with balloons, a teddy bear, chocolates, and a bouquet of red roses in an elegant vase on my nightstand. I hurried over to smell the roses and noticed they also had a message on them! They read “Will You Go to Prom With Me?”
That day I did some research to find out where and how he got those amazing embossed roses! I went online and searched flower printer and discovered that the company that had the ability to produce these personalized flowers was called Speaking Roses and that a florist nearby sold them! I called and ordered a printed flower that said “Yes!” and gave it to him the next day at school.
After much preparation and excitement, the night of prom arrived. When Ethan came to pick me up, he had a corsage pinned onto his suit that was embossed with “Ethan and Susan – Prom 2012” and gave me a matching corsage. As if the boy couldn’t get any sweeter (and these personalized roses couldn’t get any more impressive!) he pulled out two white roses for my dad. One was printed with “I’ll Get Her Home on Time” and the other had the Dallas Cowboys logo, his all time favorite team.
I know he was trying not to show it, but my dad appreciated the gesture. Not only was he impressed by Ethan’s thoughtfulness, but he was also impressed with the quality of the personalized rose. My dad wanted to know how it was done. Was it a sticker? Was it painted on? Did they use a stamp? Ethan didn’t know exactly, but he was told that they owned a patented flower printer that could emboss anything you wanted (images, messages, icons…) on live, fresh flowers.
We went to prom and had a blast! And, of course, Ethan brought me home five minutes before curfew. My dad answered the door, shook Ethan’s hand and actually smiled at him. That was a first! I ended up having my corsage dried and still have it encased with the tickets and a few of the embossed petals in a decorative glass dome.
Even though the personalized roses were a small gesture, they made my senior prom so much more memorable. Though he probably wouldn’t admit it, I think that small gesture is the reason my dad warmed up to Ethan. They get along great now! One day, I would love it if Ethan uses the same personalized rosesto propose to me. Now that’d be a story I could tell over and over again. Thank you, Speaking Roses!

I’m a Career Man with a Flower Printer

July 23, 2012

Let me share with you how an embossed flower changed my life. It was my senior year of high school, the big year before I enter the “real world”. I felt pretty good about my high school career, I’d accomplished what I wanted- with the exception of one thing. There’s this girl, yes the girl I’d always wanted to date but never even spoken to. People always say life isn’t like the movies, but this aspect of my life felt like every teen movie I’ve ever seen. However I wasn’t nerdy or ugly! It was solely my fear that held me back this long. I’d laid in bed many nights devising how I would ask out Katy Berry. Till finally one night, it dawned on me that I needed to make myself stand out from all the other guys who also were madly in love with Katy Berry. It had to be something better than chocolates, jewelry, anything the typical guy gives. Thank goodness for the internet.

After a quick Google search, I came across the perfect thing to get my dream girls attention. Flowers! But not just any flowers, flowers embossed with messages on them! I asked some of my guy and girl friends if they had ever heard of embossed flowers, no one had. Surely Katy Berry hadn’t either. I could envision the look on Katy’s face as I asked her to go out with me while holding a beautiful, pink, rose embossed with a personal message from me. I had my way in.

To make a long story short, Katy Berry accepted my offer and went out with me. It spread through the school like wild fire that I asked Katy Berry out with a pink rose embossed with the message, “I promise to always surprise you. Go out with me?” I wasn’t sure if she was surprised I was asking her out, or because the rose was embossed with a message. Whatever it was, it worked. I completed my high school career fully satisfied that I went out with Katy Berry.

It turned out Katy Berry wasn’t the girl of my dreams. I went on to college and embossed flowers never failed me through the course of my dating. I studied business at the university and as the intensity of my homework increased, so did the effectiveness of embossed flowers. I dated and studied intensely in both areas, I began to feel overwhelmed! It always seemed that the two were competing for my attention, and I wasn’t willing to give up one to focus on the other. So again, I went back to the internet.

I looked at the website I’d seen years earlier where I first discovered embossed flowers. Life didn’t seem like it could have been any better than it was at the moment. I could combine the two most successful and fulfilling parts of my life! I discovered I could start my own business with embossed flowers! That is just what I’ve done.

Embossed flowers are the best kept secret. Once people find out they can emboss pictures, messages, logos, phrases, etc. they are hooked. I provide a great living for myself with my own embossed flower shop. Get in on this industry, I have no regrets about it.

The Flower Printer Became My Business!

July 23, 2012

With Easter only a few weeks away, my kids couldn’t wait any longer to dip their boiled eggs (and let’s be honest, mostly their fingers) in the multicolored water full of dye. The kits you can buy at the grocery stores get more elaborate each year. You can speckle the eggs, cover them with stickers, give them various textures, write messages on them with a white crayon; hey you can even stripe them! Dying eggs is a tradition I grew up with, and I enjoy passing it on to my children. I love seeing them get creative and sometimes silly as they dye eggs on the newspaper I’ve laid over every inch of the kitchen for those inevitable spills.

One year will always particularly stand out to me. It was the year we decided as a family to practice our spelling words on our Easter Eggs and count it as homework. The kids went for it! Once we were out of spelling words, we decided to write messages to our friends, neighbors, and each other. What a fun time for our family! It was nice to have a different way to express our love for others besides on a piece of paper or greeting card. This really got me thinking… what else could we use to deliver messages on?

That question changed my life. After a few Google searches, I found the most brilliant concept that I knew I had to be a part of. Technology has been developed which allows messages to be embossed on flowers. Incredible I thought! Little did I know that was just one of several things that can be embossed on flowers. Logos, icons, hand written messages, photographs, any of it embossed on a flower! I knew before I sat down with my husband to explain why we needed to invest in a flower printer, I needed some convincing evidence to prove we couldn’t live without it!

I began brainstorming different things I could use these embossed flowers for, thinking of the creative sayings I could emboss on them. I always struggle thinking of gifts for my kids school teachers, but not this year! An embossed flower with a picture of her and #1 Teacher sounded great. One of our good family friends has been going through a hard time and there isn’t much we can do to help her. However the simple gesture of embossing flowers that say “We’re Thinking of You” is something I can do. The company my husband works for is always looking for new giveaways and ways to show appreciation to their clients. Embossed flower s would be perfect for the company to use! We could even make some extra cash and emboss flowers as a home based business.

My husband latched onto the idea of embossed flowers without much persuasion at all. We have been so happy with our flower printer and emboss flowers almost daily for different people and events that come up. If you want a flower printer with quality embossing, I found that , Speaking Roses was the place to buy one.


Emboss Messages on Flowers

July 23, 2012

A dear friend of mine since fifth grade went through a tragedy recently. Her mother was diagnosed with cancer and passed away within just a few, short, months. Wanting to provide her some comfort in this time of sorrow, I began to brainstorm what it is I could personally do for her. After doing a few Google searches, I came across the perfect thing. Embossed, personalized flowers! There is a company that can emboss anything you’d like on flowers. This presented my next dilemma.

There were so many options flooding my mind as I discovered anything could be embossed on flowers! They could emboss photos, phrases, icons, hand written messages, logos, the possibilities seemed endless. What would be the best for my friend? I used Facebook to snatch a darling picture of her and her mother – that was my first option to emboss on the dozen white roses I picked out. I picked out 3 more phrases to emboss such as, “We Love You!”, “Families Are Forever”, and “A Daughter is a Mother’s Treasure”.

Once I selected what I felt would speak to my friends heart, the embossing process began. It was so simple for the floral shop to do, and it only took a matter of minutes for them to emboss four different templates onto the dozen roses. I was a bit worried about the bill, not knowing how much embossed flowers would cost. The price was almost exactly the same for a dozen embossed roses, as a normal dozen roses! I couldn’t believe it! The quality of the embossing was what impressed me most. The ink was clear cut, smudge free, and professional. With time to spare, I began my drive to the deliver the embossed flowers.

Giving embossed flowers was such a huge hit! I was able to deliver them the night of her mother’s viewing. I told my friend we wanted to spoil her with something new, embossed roses. She first looked at me with an expression that said, “What is that?” Then she saw for herself what was different about these flowers. The roses embossed with the photo of her and her mom made her gasp. She grabbed her husband’s arm while he was engaged in another conversation, and told him to look at these embossed flowers! “They have a picture of me and my mom!” she exclaimed. The emotions she had tried so hard to suppress rose to the surface as she continued to look over the other embossed phrases. It was such a rewarding moment to see how these embossed roses delivered the exact message I hoped for- a message of care, love, and support.

I couldn’t have been happier with the embossed roses. They have become my “go to gift” for any event or holiday gift. I highly underestimated the powerful effect of embossing messages and photos on flowers. Embossed flowers have a way of getting straight to the receivers heart. I love saving a trip to the Hallmark store where it would usually take 10 minutes for me to find the perfect card. Now what I want to say is already embossed on the gift itself! . If you want a flower printer with quality embossing, I found that , Speaking Roses was the place to buy one.


New, Incredible Technology- Flower Printers!

April 30, 2012

Technology never ceases to amaze me. There is always new and improved technology of every kind to use daily in any situation. For example, the 3rd generation iPad was just announced. I still haven’t even caught up with the first and second generation to be honest. Technology is constantly adapting to the needs of the human race. One piece of technology I recently came across was the flower printer. This was whole new concept to me, and I became absorbed in the idea of it. Printing on fresh, live flowers… how? It must ruin the flower I thought.

Well it didn’t take long for me to discover it doesn’t ruin the beauty of the flower at all, if you have the right kind of flower printer. There are a few different avenues I could take to obtain a flower printer. I found several companies in Asia and watched their methods of printing on YouTube. They had to paint a kind of glue over half the flower to make the ink stay. I have to say, this kind of flower printer didn’t look too far off from what I’ve got sitting next to my computer at home. With my patience level, it seemed like quite the process as they went through steps. For me, technology is all about the fastest and most efficient way. So I kept looking and found the flower printer I expected for today’s technological advancements.

Speaking Roses is a US based company that originally created flower printers. They have designed flower printers that print 8-10 roses per minute. There is no glue involved. Their website states that the flower printer is so easy to use an 8 year old could do it! Their technology is not posted online, and patented, which explains why other flower printers cannot mimic or compare. In comparing the outcome of these two flower printers, there was a noticeable difference in quality. I discovered the glue from the first flower printer was visible; a shiny, plastic look. Whereas the Speaking Rose flower printer was embossed with quality ink that gave a very professional appearance.

Further research led me to find that the Speaking Rose flower printer is easy to transport and ship to various locations around the world. The functions and levers are simple and user friendly, no previous machine experience is necessary. The flower printer is easy to store at either a home or business location. I watched the Speaking Roses Channel on YouTube and viewed several testimonies of licensees discussing the Speaking Roses company and the quality of the flower printer. Speaking Roses invites their licensees to come to their corporate office for a 3 day hands on training to give each licensee everything they need to not only use the flower printer, but to begin their own business opportunity. So not only is the flower printer available for my own personal use, but I can even make money with it as a stay at home mother! If you want a flower printer, Speaking Roses is the company to purchase them from.
