On behalf of the staff and Board of Directors of the Alberta Shock Trauma Air Rescue Society (STARS), I want to thank Image Works Media Fleet Graphics and Signs for their contribution to the STARS-Support Vehicle (SSV). By supplying and installing the incredible graphics package on our donated Chevrolet Avalanche, you have guaranteed that we have the premier Emergency Services promotional and public relations vehicle in the country.
The staff and management at Image Works Media were outstanding from first contact to delivery of the final product. The creativity and attention to detail during the development phase of the artwork was excellent. Image Works Media made it easy to make additions and changes via email and the final product was even better than the proofs. The application of the product to the vehicle was surprisingly quick and delivered exactly as promised; Image Works Media exceeded our expectations.
We have had the Avalanche with the graphics and the lightening package on the road since June 15, 2004. During this period, the STARS Support Vehicle has been:
• In attendance at 32 community events
• Broadcast by the local television media 4 times
• Displayed at 3 car shows
• Featured at 5 charity golf tournaments
• Displayed in 4 community parades, including the Klondike Days parade
• Displayed at 3 emergency response-related conferences
We have featured this vehicle and the sponsors in our fall newsletter, which I will send to you when it is available for circulation.We sincerely value the relationship we have built through the project, and we look forward to working with you again in the future.

I would like to offer my personal thanks for the design work and graphics your organization donated for the Recruitment Hummer, which has led to an overwhelming successful promotional initiative for the Edmonton Police Service (EPS) Recruitment Unit. Our community partnership with your organization as well as Southgate Pontiac Buick GMC and Kee-Lok Security Supplies Ltd. demonstrates the power of collaborating with the business community while striving to think outside the box.
With respect to our recruitment efforts, the vehicle has garnered a great deal of media attention with several media outlets writing recruitment articles and featuring the Hummer as the anchor of the story. Recently, we had an article in the 24/7 national police magazine highlighting the Hummer as a recruitment tool, and have since received several phone calls from other police agencies wanting to follow our initiative. All of these articles would have cost us a significant amount to advertise our recruiting message if not for the Hummer and your ongoing support.
The Hummer has also provided our members the means to be goodwill ambassadors for the Edmonton community. Many volunteer and public service organizations have requested to have the Hummer at their events. As such, we have discovered many people use this vehicle as a conversation piece, thereby making police officers more approachable at public gatherings.
One example of how our members have been better able to reach out to the community through the use of the Hummer is our participation in the 2005 Trail Tire Street Legal Races at Castrol Raceways (Bud Park). All proceeds from rides in the Hummer have gone to the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada. During these events, our recruiting staff has fun, our sponsors get valuable exposure, and money is raised for a great community cause.
These are just a few of the benefits the EPS has experienced by using the Hummer to connect with the community. The success of our partnership with you has far exceeded our expectations.
I would like to thank you for your continued support, and for realizing what a valuable investment you have made in the EPS. We look forward to our continued partnership.

Over the last 2 years, FortisAlberta has contracted Image Works Media to supply, produce and install wraps on FortisAlberta electrical facilities. The material and graphics produced are top quality. We found the production group and installers were very professional, flexible and organized. When we had issues with the wraps being damaged in the field, they were quick to respond and repair. With their professional approach to this high profile project, it has made it a very successful and well-received program that I’m sure will grow into the future

As one year is coming to a close and another fire season is just around the corner, I wanted to take a moment to let you and your staff know that the excellent service your organization provides does not go unnoticed.
Although we get busy, and may not always comment at the time, everyone I have dealt with at Image Works has been extremely good to work with. You and your staff seem genuinely concerned with ensuring that we are completely satisfied, whether it is doing countless amendments to a project or meeting seemingly unreasonable timelines, your attitudes never change. You are always available to assist or continue with a project whenever and wherever necessary.
The professionalism and reliability of your organization makes it very easy for us to do our jobs. We know that when contracted for a project, there is little doubt the product will be completed in an accurate, cost-efficient and timely manner. We have received nothing but positive feedback on the different products you have produced for us.
Thanks again for all of your help. I look forward to dealing with you in the furture.

Caron Transportation Systems has used Image Works Media Inc. exclusively for all our fleet marketing and decal requirements for more than 10 years. The main reason our business relationship continues to remain strong and grow is easy to explain: their organization is built on customer service. This high level of customer service, combine with the quality products we consistently receive from their staff, makes dealing with Image Works Media a mutually beneficial arrangement.
Wes Sabulka and his staff have assisted us on many special projects. One that comes to mind is the “Think and Drive” campaign we worked on together several years ago. Services such as providing a book depicting all the products they provide for our company has made placing orders easier for our staff while ensuring accuracy. The level of commitment show by their staff is a main element in the success we have had in dealing with their organization. I have often complimented Wes about the level of professionalism show by Cheryl London in their administration area. The installation staff is courteous and very knowledgeable. Invoicing is always accurate from their billing department.
Caron Transportation Systems deals with several hundred vendors on an ongoing basis. Very few of these vendors show the focus and strengths the owners and staff at Image Works Media consistently provide for our company. I would strongly recommend any organization needing services they might be able to provide to deal with Image Works Media without hesitation.

I would like to extend my sincere thanks for all the hard work and late nights Ben and his team at Image Works Media Inc. have given me.
In a very short time, we were able to turn around the look of our entire fleet across the country (for a great price, as well).
It’s been a pleasure working alongside your team; I wish you all the best in the future.

Thank you so much for your exceptional service! I had a tight deadline to meet for a very important client and would not have been able to provide the quality work I was able to without the timely and quality service I received at Image Works Media. Tylen Backous bent over backwards and went above and beyond to help me get what I needed and on time. I will definitely be coming back for your product and services and highly recommend this company to others..
