The original company Allied has roots going back to 1940 when it opened as a commercial photography studio. Allied’s photographers shot for most major corporations in St. Louis being published in Life, Look, National Geographic, and major newspapers across the country. The photography studio was phased out in 1965 and the Photocolor lab was opened. In 1990 the Digital Imaging Center came online producing economical high-quality scans and direct photo imaging using lasers.

In September 2016, Bob Little, President moved his company to 3728 Market Street, in the former Famous Barr Warehouse where they could offer fabulous watercolor, canvas, fabric and other media.  Allied has worked with designers, architects, photographers and artists to bring digital art into the physical realm & create closer reproduction of existing art than ever before.

Allied has produced large installation art exhibits for many notable St. Louis and national companies.  Their services included; roll-up displays, convention and exhibit products, framing, canvas gallery wraps, giclée prints, banners, silver photo printing, artwork photographed, mounting, laminating, and installation.

Bob Little provided personal creative assistance to his clients and has recently been called to retire due to health concerns.  GRS Auction & Strategic Liquidation was selected to provide auction services for the company.  Nancy Cripe, CAGA, Auctioneer and her team will be marketing the assets on behalf of Mr. Little and his family. “Giving a business owner your full attention and taking their trust into your hands is serious business” said Cripe, and “Mr. Little built a strong business that will be marketed nationwide.”
