"PIP" stands for "Postal Instant Press". In 1963, Bill and Bonnie LeVine founded Postal Press, which was changed into a "while you wait" print center. In 1965, the first Postal Instant Press (PIP) opened, and by 1968, the business expanded to three PIP locations, marking the first franchise in the printing industry. In 1994, the International Franchise Association (IFA) created the Bonnie LeVine Award in memory of the co-founder to honor her achievements in franchising, and to recognizer her as a role model for women in the industry (Postal Instant Press, 2015). With over 400 locations, PIP provides a variety of services, including brand creation, website design, marketing, printing, and mailing.
