    Before starting Business Image Magazine, I met with dozens of graphic designers/printers and worked with a couple before I met Karl Hofmeier of Grand Marketing Solutions .

The service is second to none and I am happy to refer all my clients and prospects to him.

    We are proud to be partners with GMS. As an entrepreneur and small business owner, I value a relationship with a partner who is cut from the same mold. Grand Marketing Solutions understands what it takes to keep our company competitive in a ever changing market. They ask the right questions and treat our business as it was their own. With Grand Marketing Solutions as our partner we can focus on our core business while they execute on our marketing strategy. We've been with a handful of marketing firms over the years. Some were large, some were small, but none of them have had the impact that Grand Marketing Solutions has.
