AlphaGraphics Who We Are

1051 Third Avenue SW
Carmel, Indiana 46032

PRINTING IS OUR BUSINESS. COMMUNITY IS OUR PASSION.

When we say every customer matters at AlphaGraphics Carmel, we have the numbers to prove it - almost 10 years of service to thousands of customers and more than 1,300 reviews raving about our commitment to quality, faster-than-expected turnaround times and innovative solutions. 

That doesn't just happen by accident. It's because we're more than just a printer - we help your business communicate and take a personal interest in your success. Michael Kile opened the Carmel franchise in 2007, with more than 20 years of commercial print experience under his belt.  His goal was to create an environment that focused on attention to detail and consultative service, using the latest technology and equipment to provide innovative solutions. 

Given the overwhelmingly positive feedback from our customers, it's no surprise our own business has experienced success. AG Carmel was named a Center of Excellence two years in a row, in both 2014 and 2015, an achievement only a handful of other centers have received. And we've built a team that cares about each other and the greater community. We come together for fun events like our annual trips to watch an Indianapolis Indians baseball game, bowling nights and holiday dinners, or to support worthy causes through campaigns like Pets for Vets and AG Fights Hunger, as well as supporting our community by sponsoring local events like Porchfest.

MEET OUR TEAM

Whatever your challenges are, from customer acquisition to tracking your marketing campaigns, our team has the know-how to get the job done—right and on time, every time. We believe in recruiting, developing and retaining passionate, client-obsessed and creative individuals, which is why we consistently achieve the best results for our clients. Our team is the backbone of our business, and we can’t wait for you to meet them.
