IMAGE Worldwide (IMGW) New Divisions, St. Louis Packaging and STL Graphics, Sign Contract With John Paul Mitchell Systems for Over $500,000.00 in 2009

Contract Includes Printing Custom Packaging and Inserts

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - February 11, 2009) - IMAGE Worldwide, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: IMGW) announced that subsidiaries, St. Louis Packaging and STL Graphics Group, signed a contract with John Paul Mitchell Systems for over $500,000.00. The contract includes printing custom packaging along with specific inserts in the cartons to be delivered in 2009. John Paul Mitchell Systems is the largest privately held beauty company in the world and has worked with St. Louis and STL since 2002. This is the largest contract between the parties and both parties are expecting continued success together.

IMAGE CEO Steven St. Louis said, "John Paul Mitchell is a great client for us and now that we can offer additional products and services with the complete IMAGE network we hope to expand our relationship in the future. Our current STL staff has been meeting with the current IMAGE staff to help increase the value to our current and future clients and we are all excited about the opportunities ahead of us. My goal is to finish the STL audit in about 30 days and continue to pursue potential acquisitions."

Former IMAGE CEO Paul Sorkin said, "I understand that there has been some confusion among shareholders regarding the current transaction with St. Louis and STL so I want to clear a few things up. IMGW acquired a company that will get audited to prove they did over $5,000,000 in revenue with over $300,000 in net profit in 2008. This recent acquisition and share exchange was for restricted stock and will not change the free trading float. As the old CEO I never took a salary and I had a choice between keeping all my shares and passing on this deal or giving up my shares and acquiring a great company to benefit the shareholders. I have invested and lost the most time and money out of anyone in this deal and since most of our other investors are family and friends I decided to get a substantial deal done for the shareholders and let them have a better chance to make their money back or profit from their investments. My personal opinion is that this stock is greatly undervalued considering the current revenues and profits compared to the current market cap evaluation and I will continue to do what I can to help."

IMAGE Worldwide (IMGW) has a total of 823,617,930 outstanding shares with 750,814,220 being free trading shares according to First American Stock Transfer's recent report dated 2/10/2009.
