The Most Print & Finishing Under One Roof.
Imagine!’s founder and owner, Bob Lothenbach, has built one of the most amazing success stories in the printing industry.
Customers consistently say the reasons they choose Imagine! are:
- Lowest overall supply chain cost
- Best brand consistency and highest quality
- Shortest project timelines – quick responses
- A high level of innovation and creativity
- Industry-leading customer service
Operating a press in high school, Bob began selling print and soon after started his own company in 1988 in a garage with one borrowed press and less than $2,000. The business grew rapidly over the last 28 years and is now the largest single-location, privately-held sheetfed printer in the U.S. with 1,600+ employees.

Imagine! has received numerous awards for excellence in print quality and innovation, and is nationally known as one of the most progressive and fastest-growing print companies in the United States.
- AcquisitionsPart of Imagine!’s growth has included the acquisition of DigiGraphics (renamed as Imagine! EXPRESS-Minneapolis) in 2012, adding robust offerings of large and grand format UV printing, framing and interior décor solutions. In late 2013, Classic Graphics (Charlotte, NC) joined the family of Imagine! companies. Classic expands the Imagine! footprint and our service offering, providing direct mail services and commercial printing. Most recently, Imagine! acquired Midnight Oil Agency, of Burbank, California in June 2016. Midnight Oil’s capabilities in the creative agency space and their penetration of the gaming and entertainment industries make them a great fit for the Imagine! family of companies.
- Investments/Growth StrategyTechnology changes on a daily basis. By keeping ahead of the curve and investing in new equipment and technology, our customers never need to look elsewhere to keep on top of the trends. In that same mindset, Imagine! is always on the lookout for innovations and opportunities to help YOU be new and different.
- Innovative MethodsIt’s been said around the Imagine! offices, “If you’ve been gone for 5 minutes, you haven’t been here.” We vow to never settle into a routine. Your company doesn’t stay the same, and you wouldn’t expect your partners to grow stale either. Expect more from your suppliers – expect innovation, invention, mad-scientist ideas. Not only are you going to see the latest & greatest technology and machinery, you’ll see the inner-workings of our team’s minds. You should never stop learning and growing – and we promise, we’ll never settle. From re-engineering equipment to inventing patented processes to developing new products our minds are never at rest.
