Phase 3 Acquires IMAGERS®

Marketing Services Company Continues Growth through B2C and B2SB 

ATLANTA, Ga. – (Aug. 6, 2019) – Phase 3 Marketing and Communications, an end-to-end marketing, PR, creative, digital, print and fulfillment service provider, announced today the acquisition of Atlanta-based company IMAGERS®, continuing its steady growth in the printing industry.


A print and brand communication company, IMAGERS has been a resource for visual graphics since its inception in 1947 as Southeastern Microfilm. The company was started by Alva Lines and has been owned by his sons Tom and Fred for the past 30 years. Early adopters of new technology, IMAGERS paid $600,000 for their first computers to create computer-generated slides and film output. Later, IMAGERS purchased digital color laser printers, large format color printers, an Indigo Digital Press, a Heidelberg Digital Press, and in 1994, launched their transactional website, imagers.com, serving customers nationwide.


“Today’s news marks another important milestone for Phase 3’s growth strategy,” said Max Nair, co-founder and chief investment officer, Phase 3 Marketing and Communications. “By adding IMAGERS to our already fast-growing printing division, we are expanding important business-to-consumer and business-to-small-business services to our customers.”


IMAGERS employees will transition to Phase 3’s corporate office and production facility in Atlanta.


“We are very proud of what we have accomplished during our time as IMAGERS. Our business and infrastructure is stronger than ever,” said Joe Edwards, CEO, IMAGERS. “Phase 3’s position in the marketplace, financial resources, expanded production and distribution footprint, agency services and personnel resources were very attractive to us. It became clear, that through this unique acquisition with Phase 3, our current customers will benefit immediately from a national footprint and expanded production capabilities for all of IMAGERS current service lines.”
