MAX = to the greatest extent possible
imprint = to stay in your mind or memory
Our motto is: we maximize impact for a maximum imprint. Whether we’re building user-friendly websites, creating clear content, designing graphics or branding, sourcing stunning photos, or handcrafting lovely giftable soaps, we aim to help people make lasting memories.
Our 3-pronged philosophy for clear content comes from Habakkuk 2:2.
1. Write the vision.
2. Make it plain on tablets.
3. So he may run who reads it.
Essentially, our mission is to (1) capture the vision in your heart, (2) communicate it clearly on every device, (3) so your target audience will be able to understand it and run with it!
MAXimprint is the "dynamic duo" of the husband and wife team: Jonathan and Melissa Maxim. We met for the first time beside an InterVarsity Welcome Table at Art School in 1993 and started serving together on campus in 1994. Four years later, were married in Pennsylvania on the 4th of July, and we have five grown children; one girl and four boys (ages spanning from 12 to 23).

Jon has been a Website, Content & Ministry Consultant since before Y2K. During the last two decades, it has been his pleasure to create over 70 websites. Jon holds two degrees, an Associate of Applied Science in Art & Design from Rochester Institute of Technology (1995) and a Bachelor of Science in Bible & General Ministry from Lancaster Bible College (1999).
Before moving with his family to the Corning, New York area in 2004 to help start a church, he worked as a Graphic Designer for DavCo Advertising and as a Multimedia Designer for Sight & Sound Theatres in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. While in Lancaster, he was an ALPHA Group Leader and Website Designer for his church. After moving north, he has served several churches as a Webmaster, Media Designer, Resource Table Team Leader, Children's Ministry Team Leader, Sunday School Teacher, and a Wordless Book Evangelist. Jon is currently serving as a Community Group Leader for Emmanuel Community Church.
Since living in the Corning region, Jon had the opportunity to work for two companies listed in Inc. Magazine as America's Fastest-Growing Privately-Owned Companies, serving as a Publisher & Content Creator for Kingdom Inc. and a Project Coordinator for Monk Development (creators of Ekklesia 360 and Sermon Cloud). After working for Monk, Jon served as a Partnership Director, Communications Director, Web Consultant & Ministry Advisor for Church Plant Media for over a decade. During that time, he has been blessed to serve countless local churches and national gospel-centered ministries like The Gospel Coalition (TGC), 1517 (Christ Hold Fast), Converge, and The American Association of Lutheran Churches. His most significant project for TGC was to rewrite, rebuild, and relaunch 25 websites within a few days for their Regional Chapters.
One of the most noteworthy seasons during that decade was from 2014–2015 when Jon served Tullian Tchividjian (grandson of the late Evangelist Billy Graham) and Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church as the Editorial Director & Webmaster for Liberate; connecting God's inexhaustible grace to an exhausted world, through daily blog content and resources that declared over and over again that Jesus lived, died, and rose again to "set the captives free" (Luke 4:18).
After Liberate's untimely end, Jon has been working as a Website Contractor, helping to rebrand, redesign, and redevelop many other websites, including Pirate Christian Radio (for Rev/Captain Chris Rosebrough) and Copper Moon Coffee. Since 2019, he has been contracting full-time for Copper Moon as their Website Manager. He has been building and maintaining their websites using Shopify (including Manatee Gourmet Coffee and Hardcore Coffee). In 2020, Jon pioneered and cultivated partnerships for their Reach for the Moon program.
Most recently, Jon had the unexpected blessing of building websites for a few ministries within the Anglican Communion, including Paramount Church for Dr. John Fonville, Always Forward and Next Generation Leadership Initiative (both initiatives of the Anglican Church in North America), and the Center for Reformation Anglicanism.

Melissa loves people! Growing up as a PK (Pastor's Kid), she has lived servant-ministry up close and personal since birth. Her passion is to share the one-way love of Jesus with everyone. In 1996, Melissa graduated with a BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) in Graphic Design from Rochester Institute of Technology. The year following her graduation from RIT, she served Open Door Mission in inner-city Rochester as an Administrative Assistant.
Melissa's education and experience serving people make her a vital asset and resource in all of our branding, design, and content projects. For every website project that we build, Melissa plays a key role in selecting (and at times capturing), approving, sizing, uploading, and placing all of the photography and graphic design elements we use. She also migrates website content to various Content Management Systems, including pages, products, blog posts, signup forms, sermons, and often provides feedback on new website content.
Although her work serving our family keeps her very busy, Melissa is also our Office Manager and the Administrative Assistant (Full-Time Contractor) for Church Plant Media. She answers phones, assists current and future customers by providing Tier 1 website support and data entry. Melissa also enjoys keeping her hands in the creative mix by regularly publishing family memories on her Facebook and Instagram and handcrafting gift soaps available for purchase locally at the Information Center of Corning.
