Infinite Imaging, a printing and graphic design company with branches in Portsmouth and York, Maine, has been sold by founder and owner Bill Hurley, who is retiring Chris Oberg and his business partner Chris Carrier, owners of AlphaGraphics in Concord, Massachusetts. With the sale, Infinite Imaging, and its in-house graphic design firm West End Creative, will be joining the AlphaGraphics, an international company with 270 locations in six countries.
“Since the business started in 1998, we’ve evolved and changed to take advantage of new opportunities and to respond to changing realities. And our name has changed with us—first as Portsmouth Copy and Blueprint, then LifeSize Graphics and finally Infinite Imaging, with the most recent addition of West End Creative,” says Hurley.
Over the next six months, the Infinite Imaging brand will transition to that of AlphaGraphics. West End Creative will continue to operate as the graphic design arm of the print business under its current name and Hurley will be involved during the changeover.
“As a local resident, I know Infinite Imaging is a well-respected and successful business with deep roots in the Seacoast community," says Oberg. "We are excited to keep the spirit of independent, local printing alive by continuing to foster strong customer relationships, provide personalized service and high-quality work while taking full advantage of all of the resources that AlphaGraphics has to offer.”
“By combining the skills of the Concord, Portsmouth and York locations, we create a team that can seamlessly and easily scale to the needs of our clients in either region at a moment’s notice. We have the capabilities of a large commercial printer and marketing firm with the personal touch of your local shop,” added Carrier.
