Our Story

Image360 - Rochester Graphics that enhance, signage that works, displays that inform

 

Julie St. Germaine and Jackie Ciresi always knew they wanted to own and run their own business. As creative individuals with an entrepreneurial drive, they set out in search of a company within the Business to Business space that had a growing customer base and required a creative approach to problem solving. These criteria matched perfectly with the sign industry and Julie and Jackie began their training in the sign industry in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1997.

After learning the business from the ground up at two high volume Signs Now centers they decided to start their own center in Julie’s home state of New York. When searching for an ideal location for their new business, they considered cities that had the same demographic model as Grand Rapids and all signs (pun intended) pointed to Rochester, NY.

Signs Now of Rochester Inc. opened its doors for business in November of 1999 in a 3000 sq. ft. facility. As the years passed, digital print was introduced and business grew significantly with a strong focus on corporate branding, interior/exterior office signage and vehicle graphic wraps.  Now the center boasts a UV Flatbed printer, roll to roll wide format printer, digital cutting and high speed router and laminating machine along with 7 employees and 7,000 square feet of space.

 

Image360 Rochester:  Now Signs Now Rochester is image360 Rochester

In 2016 Signs Now Rochester rebranded the business to become image360 Rochester.  The change wasn’t simply the business name, but involved a conscious effort to showcase the full-circle service and signage solutions provided to customers.

Image360 Rochester provides a consultative, problem-solving approach to customer service for any graphic and signage needs. For projects simple and complex, our team will work closely with you to maximize the creativity and visual impact of your project needs. We look forward to working with you.
