    Got a call this morning from a guy "interested in buying my business"... ;)
    I know it is more likely than not a scam but I was curious if others here have got calls from Image 360...?

    I can tell you that one of the Signs by Tomorrow near me is now a Image 360. Same owner, I am guessing he bought into Image 360 and left signs by tomorrow, but I'm guessing.

    looks like a legit franchise. Maybe one of the franchisees are looking to expand

    When Signs by Tomorrow started out, they expanded by buying/enrolling existing sign shops into their franchise. The shop I worked for was looked at for it. I wasn't an owner, but I went along on the visit to a nearby SBT and talked to the people trying to sign us up. It felt very multilevel marketing scheme to me the way SBT approached it.

    Yea a couple owners have multiple centers, I work at one.

    BTW signs by tomorrow and signs now were rebranded into Image360s, there are still a couple floating around but they're in the process of changing. Same shop/staff just different name.

    Just checked their website. The closest Image 360 is in a college town about 75 miles away. Their website says "Signs Now is now Image 360--same location, same owners, new name". So I guess Image 360 is growing by recruiting existing shops.

    Yeah, it's apart of a franchise brand. They have a few like Sign by Tomorrow and Signs Now. Alpha Graphics does the same thing.

    So I am guessing that instead of wanting to "buy my shop" they want me to buy into changing it to one of their branded shops...

    What about SignPro? I see the same exact logo for different locations but it doesn't seem to be a franchise. Anyone heard of them?

    Image360, Allegra, Speedy printing, signs by tomorrow and signs now is all apart of alliance franchise brands. I work at an Image360 in michigan and we are dual branded with Allegra.

    Maybe they’re trying to buy whilst people are worried about how long this will go on/if they can sustain it financially. Could easily get a fair chunk off the actual business worth in this climate
