102-Year-Old Russian Bathhouse Signs One Year Advertising Contract With IMAGE

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - March 11, 2008) - IMAGE Worldwide (PINKSHEETS: IMGW) subsidiary IMAGE Chicago has signed a one year contract with one of Chicago's most established and well-known spas, Russian Bathhouse. This agreement includes print ads, online ads, and email marketing with IMAGE Chicago.

The Bathhouse has been around for over 100 years, is the only traditional bathhouse remaining in Chicago, and one of only a handful in the United States. One of its most prominent regular customers in recent years has been Reverend Jesse Jackson -- a fact that brought the bathhouse some publicity when it was first reported in the mainstream press. Mobster Sam Giancana was also said to have come here, and various out-of-town celebrities such as James Gandolfini and Russell Crowe have occasionally visited; their autographed portraits line a corridor on the first floor.
