Dan was amazing and got my order done quickly and delivered so fast.
I was thrilled with the quick turnaround (next day) for my yard sign for my college graduate. AlphaGraphics went over and above with creating a personalized sign that included the U of I college logo/colors, offering hands-free ordering/delivery, and even delivering my sign so that it was in place for (online) graduation day - even though I approved my sign too late to be included in that day's delivery!
Outstanding experience every time. Excellent service, pricing and quality products. Highly recommended.
Really personal service from Dan. It is a huge help to know that he will always recommend the best, most cost effective option so that I don't need to spend long comparing options.
