WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
I feel as though the quality of my product was okay. I wish that the final product was the deepest black possible; however, I will be coming back to work with Alphagraphics primarily because of Brian Murdoch! His customer service was absolutely amazing and he went above and beyond for me unlike many other companies I've worked with. He treated my small scale business as though it is global. I cannot emphasize enough how service like his is one of the many reasons that businesses succeed. I will more than recommend the company solely based upon the experience I have. I was promised deadlines that were met and given recommendations for future products. Thank you sooooo much Brian for treating me like family!

You guys are always so responsive and I appreciate that you try to get us the best price. As a non-profit, that is especially critical. Your turnaround time is also impressive, even during the coronavirus pandemic you fulfilled our our quickly and thoughtfully. AlphaGraphics is always my first choice.

Micah B. Pure Storage
Everything was handled very quickly and professionally for me. Very happy with the service.

Brian Murdoch has been great and he deserves a raise. The rep before him, Fergus Calderwood, became quite rude for some reason over time. I was ready to look for another graphic designer until I heard he was replaced. Make sure you keep people like Brian.

Brian and his team at AlphaGraphics do excellent work. Brian has a deep knowledge of the printing industry and all the print and large format products at his disposal, and is very thorough with his clients to develop an understanding of the project at hand and provide the best solution.

BEAT THE COMPETITION WITH PROMOTIONAL PRODUCTS IN CHICAGO, IL
Call it whatever you want, 'swag' or 'freebies', promotional products are a great way to market and promote your company. Items like mugs, pens, keychains, and more, tagged with relevant information pertaining to your company, are a great way to leave your potential customers with a little something that leaves a lasting impression. A well-made, useful promotional product can give you the subtle advantage over competitors, especially in a saturated market like Chicago.
It's not just the thought that counts
In the world of promotional products, one of the most useful tools you have to leverage is just that; making items useful to the recipients. Nobody wants a product that is cheap and useless, so it's important for you to take the time to think about whether or not your product will actually be used. It can be as simple as giving a sealed coffee mug as opposed to a cheap coffee cup at a truck driver's convention. A truck driver is far more likely to actually use a sealed coffee cup. These types of thoughtful promotional items with branded content represent your brand properly and leave the recipients with a subtle reminder of your products and services.
More than a logo
It's not just about slapping a logo on a cheap key chain and sending it out. At AlphaGraphics we put thought into our promotional items and we encourage you to get creative with us to come up with promotional items that are distinct, eye-catching, and ultimately endure the test of time. Our printing process for promotional items is of a high-quality that won't just rub off with one use and become irrelevant. We invite you to dream with us about how you can use promotional items to boost your brand relevancy and impact with those that are so vital to seeing your business grow.
Here's just a little taste of the common promotional items we offer:
- Coffee Mugs
- Golf Accessories (tees, balls, towels, etc.)
- Key Chains
- Sports bottles
- Office Supplies
- Sports Accessories

- and more
