In 2006, with the support of family and friends, Brian and Margaret Thomas became Signs Now franchise owners. They decided the north Nashville area would be the location to begin this adventure. In 2007, they purchased the local sign company, Hawkeye Signmakers, which had a well-established resume within the community. They began with an upgrade in equipment and change of location. The team worked diligently to continue the evolution as an area leader in signage and graphics solutions. In 2013, Larry Gann, owner of the Nashville Sign Company, presented a proposition of a merger between the two companies. The combination of the two became a reality one year later, as both operations were moved into one location. Regrettably, Larry Gann lost a courageous battle with cancer shortly thereafter. His reputation of providing signage solutions with extraordinary customer service is carried on today. The two teams, with their combined experience, have joined forces to represent one of the most complete and premier signage and visual communications companies in the Nashville area.
Since the acquisition of the Nashville Sign Company’s capabilities and the well-established abilities of Signs Now, we realize building upon this success is a necessity. Both companies have very unique qualities and niches that they provided to their clients. In order to convey the services that can now be offered, a new identity was pursued. The new brand, Image360, provides the tools and “image”, that both of these companies had earned independently. As the brand Image360/Hendersonville, we can provide our clients with an all-encompassing product and service base with a consultative, problem solving style to customer service and creative management.
