Hi, my name is Jo-Anne. I am the CEO of Imajenit. I’ve been a web & graphic designer for 15+ years. I graduated from The Illinois Institute of Art in Schaumburg with a bachelor degree in Interactive Media Design. After working for a few big companies in the past, I now proudly own my online business, Imajenit.
I started my company, Imajenit, pronounced as “Imagine it”, in October 2014. I just had my first-born child when I got laid off from my contract job. Little did I know that it was a blessing in disguise. Instead of looking for a new job, I decided to take a risk and pursue my dream of owning my own business. Plus, I got to stay home to raise my daughter; something I really wanted to do.
I started an Etsy shop, only selling digital files of custom-made invitations, holiday cards, and wall arts. A repeat customer of mine had messaged me one day asking to design a photo booth for her. I was very reluctant to design a photo booth at first but since the business was pretty slow, I decided “why not”. I placed that same photo booth design up in my shop and to my surprise, it became my number one seller in 2015! From then on, I started designing all kinds of photo booth themes. Designing and selling Photo booths had become my main focus in my business.
In the beginning of 2017, I made a huge leap and decided to sell “Printed & Shipped” photo booths. It was one of the biggest demands from my customers. We now do all the printing, mounting and shipping in-house.
