The article that I mention below is not the Press Release that announced the acquisition, but, rather, it is an article by Cary Sherburne of whattheythink.com, based on Sherburne’s interview of a couple of Allegra’s management team members.
The purchase price was not disclosed.
I’m posting a link to Sherburnes’s article because, nowadays, many reprographers across the U.S. are competing with sign companies for display graphics printing services.
In the article (which will appear on your screen if you click on “continue reading”) mentions the average “per store” sales revenues of Signs Now and Signs By Tomorrow, at “just over $400,000 and just shy of $400,000”, respectively, which I found interesting - - inasmuch as I’m always interested in comparing revenues of different types of companies involved in reprographics, printing, display graphics, etc.

Cary Sherburne, WhatTheyThink’s Senior Editor, had a few questions for Allegra’s Carl Gerhardt and Mike Marcantonio about this acquisition. Here’s what they had to say.
