Image Options is committed to helping businesses and workers return to work safely with our new line of protective shields and other social distancing tools. Watch the ABC News feature below on the “Workplace of the Future” to see some of our custom designed protective products in action.
We are so proud of our team who has never stopped innovating since the pandemic began. Our company specializes in transforming business environments, so it was a natural progression to incorporate protective products for workplaces into our offering.
“Our goal is to take the requirement of safety and the well-being of employees and integrate our protective products into the brand identity and cultural elements of these environments in a thoughtful way,” said Mike Gencarelle, National Accounts Director at Image Options.
Our protective shields are custom designed for each business, so they install easily and fit naturally within your current branding and decor. Visit our Corporate Responsibility page for more information on how we can help make your workplace safer....
Image Options has been restructuring to meet the needs of healthcare industry by producing nearly 25,000 face shields and other personal protection equipment (PPE) daily. Additionally, our team has now developed a proprietary COVID-19 Checkout Shield to protect grocery and retail cashiers, as well as customers, during the checkout process.
“We have long been partnering with the retail client-base. We immediately recognized that many of our clients, who currently have teams on the front-line, were not mutually protected while they were serving the community,” noted CEO Dave Bales.
Optically clear, and incredibly simple to install, these Checkout Shields offer protection from direct airborne germs while maintaining the aesthetics of the location.
“We fabricated a prototype shield, installed it at Zanotto’s Markets in San Jose, CA, and realized immediately just how necessary this was,” said David Payne, president of Image Options, San Jose.
Image options can add customized text such as “Because We Care,” as well as an area for sponsored advertising. In addition to the health and safety benefits of the shield, the advertising space provides an opportunity for a potential revenue stream for the retail store.

Image Options is proud to be joining the efforts to manufacture much needed supplies for the healthcare industry during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are fortunate to have two fabrication centers, one in San Jose, CA and one in Foothill Ranch, CA, with over 200,000 square feet of open capacity. For every project we take on, we develop and produce something unique, so our facilities and our team are primed to meet new challenges.
After receiving a request from an IO family member at a local hospital, we realized the position we were in to provide a much-needed product. Within 48 hours the team was in full production of critical medical personal protective equipment (PPE). We are grateful that our ability to retool and pivot our facilities will both help us deliver supplies as well as keep our team members active during these uncertain times.
“Our goal is to help the local community with procuring some of the critical items that are currently incredibly difficult to acquire, while maintaining a core level of employment for our staff,” said Dave Bales, our Chief Executive Officer. “We have an incredibly talented team that is used to engineering complex projects combined with a large inventory…...
At Image Options, we love to design corporate work environments that support company values and celebrate employees. But to succeed, we focus inward first, prioritizing a positive and recognition-based culture internally. One of the tools we use to support and engage our employees is Motivosity, who recently featured us for our success with their program.
Motivosity is a platform that was developed to make employees feel more recognized and connected to their coworkers, as well as strengthen relationships with management. CEO Dave Bales noted after using Motivosity, “We saw a tremendous increase in peer-to-peer appreciation, resulting in being more appreciative as a group in general.” While recognizing our employees has always been an important part of Image Options, the platform allowed for a much more fluid, immediate, and participation-based experience than employee shout outs at team meetings.
Through the use of an interactive company portal, peer-to-peer interaction is encouraged. Employees can get to know each other better through an internal social media like experience. “Motivosity can be used for so much more than appreciations. The social aspect of Motivosity allows employees to know more about what’s going on in our company on a daily basis,” Dave explained. When Image Options acquired…...
A Partnership in Synergy
When Image Options and Splash! began working together, outsourcing to each other for tradeshow exhibitions, corporate environments, and other graphic communication endeavors, the synergy between the two companies was clear. Brands were looking for integrated solutions to engage their customers and tell their story in more innovative ways. Together, Image Options and Splash had the dynamics in place to strategize, design, produce and install environments in touch with current trends and tap into the emotional center of the customer experience. Acquiring Splash! into Image Options was a natural and mutually beneficial next stage.
Now, over a year after our two companies became the newly expanded Image Options, “Envision” has never been a more apt slogan. Our new capabilities give us a unique edge in the marketplace, built from years of experience in conception, printing, and production. But at the core of our synergy is the partnerships we build with our clients. We listen, work with, and innovate to meet the needs of our clients in new and exciting ways. One of the many examples is the software suites we have developed. Not only do we have software to visualize an environment so clients can see real…...
