What Will I See?

ISI is proud to have helped with layout and prep for the new book, Grandpa! Grandpa! What Will I See? by  William P. Bahlke, illustrated by Lothar Speer.

The somewhat autobiographical book features a fantastical conversation between a little girl and her Grandpa. He tells about events that he’s witnessed in his life and they speculate about what she might see in her own lifetime.

Bill and Meda Bahlke live in Laurel Springs, North Carolina, part of the year and in Key West the rest of the time.

The book is beautifully illustrated from the imagination of Lothar Speer, a friend of the Bahlkes who divides his time between Key West and Chicago.

Originals and our pages (!) are currently on display in the XOJ Gallery at The Studios of Key West  at 533 Eaton Street in Key West, Florida. For more information, call: 305-296-0458 or email:

The books are available in softcover, hardcover and Kindle edition, now, just in time for Christmas at Amazon.

The Symphony is Coming!

Saturday, July 22nd, 2017

We’ve been busy getting ready for the Western Piedmont Symphony Chamber Orchestra’s visit in September.
With apologies to Bugs and the gang, ISI created poster art that might look, to some, a little… um… “looney.”  Look for table tents and flyers in the coming weeks for this important fund-raiser to benefit the Alleghany Educational Foundation.

Tickets will be available at the Library, the Visitors Center, Books ‘N Friends, Becca’s Backwoods Bean and Sparky’s Coffeehouse.

Plan to come and help support our students, September 17 at 7pm in the Sparta auditorium.

Tri-State Components Color Previewers

Monday, June 19th, 2017

Tri-State Components

Check out the color previewer we developed for Tri-State Components in Sparta.

It allows potential customers to see combinations of available colors so that they can more easily decide what to order.

Tri-State began their site using a template, but wanted to incorporate components like the color preview so they called Imaging Specialists.

We customized their template, changed the site colors to match their brand, proofread the site content, optimized photographs, and created the updated color switching component they requested.

The base images both feature existing Tri-State installations. We “de-saturated” the original photos and created overlays for each of the roof and wall colors currently available.

To see the new color option viewers, click the links or images, below. The viewer will open in a new window.

Roof (Master Rib) Color Options,

Roof/Wall (Standing Seam) Color Combinations.

roofroofwallBut we warn you, they’re addictive. If you’ve an idea for a custom widget for your site, call Claire at 336-372-3002.
