DIGIKIDS® Franchise Inspires Local Printer to Stop the Presses

Share Article

In response to the more than 2,000 missing children reported in the United States each day, DIGIKIDS® recently unveiled its new Child Safety CD that allows parents to provide law enforcement officials, the media, the NCMEC and other agencies with two high-resolution digital photos along with medical and identifying information to aid in recovery efforts.

After 30 years of successful ownership and operation of Fort Worth’s Type Case Printworks, Kent and Becky Couch have officially stopped the presses and have launched an entirely new business to help parents protect their children through an advanced Child ID franchise called DIGIKIDS®.

Having initially discovered DIGIKIDS® while printing the DIGIKIDS® marketing materials, the Couches are very excited about their new endeavor. “It was such an awakening to look at the DIGIKIDS® sales promotions and realize that we could be doing something worthy like this,” said Becky Couch. “As a former elementary school principal, Kent was thrilled about DIGIKIDS® because it meant getting back to his roots. We just couldn’t resist the opportunity,” she concluded.

According to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, acting within the first 20 minutes following a disappearance is absolutely critical. By utilizing the DIGIKIDS® business card-sized CD-ROM (easily carried in a pocket or purse and operates in any PC with a CD-ROM drive), parents are only moments away from distributing pre-formatted flyers and posters – complete with high-resolution photos and last-minute details – anywhere in the world via internet email. “The electronic delivery to law enforcement officials of a child’s digitized photo can save crucial time, since the chances of safely recovering a child are much greater within the first few hours immediately following a child abduction,” says John Walsh, founder of the NCMEC (NCMEC.org).”

Although the service is available through schools, preschools, churches and summer camps, DIGIKIDS® ability to produce the Child ID kits on site in two minutes or less affords a perfect opportunity for any local business wishing to sponsor a DIGIKIDS® safety event as a means of giving back to the local community or its employees. “At $15.95, the program is affordable enough for every parent to have, but we also are committed to giving contributions back to schools and other non-profit sponsors for every kit we sell,” states co-owner Kent Couch. The Couch’s territory encompasses eastern Tarrant and Denton County.

Utilizing patent-pending technology in the making of each Child Safety CD, DIGIKIDS® never creates a database of any kind, and emergency emails and attachments are sent through a dedicated, secure network. Located in Fort Worth, Texas, DIGIKIDS® distributes the product through independent franchisees. Franchise opportunities are available for single or multiple territory development.
