Our History

Allegra Palatine opened in March of 1997, under the name of Insty-Prints, under the ownership of the Father and Son team, Patrick and Brian Walsh. Their first year in business, they were awarded the Rookie of the Year award, they broke the franchise sales record for first-year sales, and received the True Grit Award for accomplishing all of that while Patrick was battling cancer. Insty-Prints of Palatine grew quickly, winning several more awards for both sales growth and design excellence.

In 2001, the Allegra franchise bought the Insty-Prints franchise. In order to change names, a franchise location must pass a series of tests that measure the capabilities, attention to detail, and overall quality. Brian and his crew received the highest marks ever given!!! The award hangs proudly in their lobby for all to see.

In 2014, we moved from our location on Northwest Highway to our new state-of-the-art facility on Vermont Street in Palatine.

In 2017 we are excited to have expanded into the Wisconsin area with the acquisition of Insty-Prints of Kenosha.  Insty Kenosha opened its doors in 1975 and has an amazing history of client service and quality.  We are proud to be able to continue this tradition in partnership with long-time owner and friend, Mike Worcester.  We are re-branding the Insty-Prints name to Allegra, and look forward to serving the Kenosha and Pleasant Prairie areas for many years to come.

Brian is a past Chairman of the National Advisory Board, representing fellow franchisees in developing marketing strategies and programs alongside the staff at the Franchise Headquarters. Additionally, Allegra is a past recipient of the prestigious Marketing Trailblazer Award for their creative use of modern technology in an ongoing marketing campaign.’
