What's our history?
AlphaGraphicwas founded by entrepreneur Rodger Ford in Tucson, Arizona, in 1970. A pioneer and innovator, Ford’s vision was to create business centers that offered customers the latest visual communications technology.
After successfully building the company’s operating systems into a successful and profitable business model, AlphaGraphics began franchising in 1979. In 1984, the company became the first desktop publishing retailer. By the late ’80s, AlphaGraphics was aggressively pursuing the global marketplace, becoming the first U.S. printing franchise to expand internationally. In 2001, the company moved its headquarters to Salt Lake City, Utah.
