Andrew Kohlmann, Owner
I'm proud of my company's history in Northern Michigan -- it's been close to 25 years since Signs Now first opened in Traverse City. Since 1996, when I started my career with Signs Now as a TC Central high school student, I've strived to provide the very best customer service and products possible. In 2008 my wife Amy and I purchased the center from the previous owners and have worked hard to continue Signs Now's evolution as an area leader in signage and graphics solutions. Since 2008, we've added new team members, expanded our line of products and services, invested in a larger facility and technology. On January 1, 2014, we updated our name and image to better reflect who we've become -- Image360.
My team and I are heavily invested in our community and we look forward to continuing to be your best local resource and community partner.
