I appreciated how quickly I received responses and how brief but detailed the communication was.
Brandi M. ImmersieveTouch
Emily is a rockstar.
Charlie G. Charlie Guild
The entire process: the bidding, the files submission and proofs, final printing and delivery was all excellent! Your team was great to work with, especially Emily Srodon!
Jeff M. Marshall Media
Speedy, helpful, great communication
Edgar M. Edgar Melero
The Alphagraphics staff was great. Very quick, professional, friendly, & helpful. The team even provided me with a discount code when I required a reprint (from my own error!). I’m impressed & will definitely refer others.
Allison E. Allison Erfort
Just to repeat that Ken D'Souza noticed a mistake in our delivery label that quite possibly saved us some time and anguish. Ken is conscientious, patient and capable. He was even good enough to reply to an email I sent on the weekend. He was a pleasure to work with. I also spoke with Emily Srodon on several occasions. She was always pleasant, well informed and helpful.
Dean J. RFID
We would rather be invoiced for work. I appreciate why you demand payment at time of order entry, but it just adds a layer of complication at time of inception. In fact I have used other vendors solely for this reason.
James S. 1871
Excellent customer service and the quality of the product was top notch.
Kathy K. Kathy Kraas
Brian Murdoch is a great asset to the Alpha Graphics team. He always goes above and beyond.
Amanda A. City Club of Chicago
The service was a very efficient. We had used a previous vendor and the staff at Alpha Graphics were kind enough to allow us to drop off a sample of our current cards to ensure we included all the necessary information in the specs. This gave helped trust that our order would be completed properly. We loved the fact that this was a local vendor so that we could do so! Communication was excellent and friendly.
Xochitl C. Windy City Paws
Emily Srodon is a rock star and made everything easy and happen on a rushed timeline.
Sonia B. Sonia Reps
Business cards turned out perfect. The person that I worked with made things easy.
Nathan C. Nathan Casteel
Given the time constraint, turn-around time of 4 hours for 8 pieces of marketing collateral with bleeds, the outcome was more than we could have hoped for. Thank you AlphaGraphics for your professionalism, both in print quality and your team!
Deborah I. NantWorks
It is always a pleasure to work with you.
Jonathan T. Jonathan Tomek
Emily has been awesome to work with and she is always great at getting us any answers we may need.

Charlie S. CBRE
Responsive and reliable - I would definitely recommend!
Emily P. L3 Hospitality Group, LLC
My experience with AlphaGraphics is always top notch. This experience was no different, and I was able to complete a project earlier than expected since they were able to accommodate a quick turnaround on a very custom ask.
Sarah M. JB Training Solutions
Excellent service on time and accurate
Tony J. Articulate Science
I used your services to print a poster for a conference nearby. Communication with the account manager was great, and pickup was a breeze. Thank you for a smooth transaction!
Matilde M. Matilde Miranda
There were installation issues that were eventually resolved - while we were waiting for completion, materials were left scattered in one of our meeting rooms so we couldn't use it.
Jennifer J. Sphera
It's been a pleasure working with Brian Murdoch. The level of service and quality of finished product has been exceptional!
Kendra B. Wilson Sporting Goods Co.
I have had a couple issues with the way the product was delivered (some things have been cut off), but I love working with your team because you are very professional and have always been able to get me things quickly!
Anna A. Hyatt Regency Chicago
Emily was really helpful and nice. I'm an audio engineer and sometimes hear the timbre and inflection and cadence of someone's voice and think jeeeeeez they literally sound perfect for this part/role/position/job. Emily has one of those voices and that made it easy to shop over the phone like I was talking to an old friend or something; and no bad salesy pressure or rushing me off the phone like another place I called. And she had the skills to help inexperienced yet picky new customer like me. I'll be back to order again soon and have already recommended to you my friend with a dog day care place in Logan...
Mike H. Fade Out Media
I worked with Emily to have my order ready on time, and she was so polite and easy to work with. The final product looked great too,
Ian H. Ian Hosack
Rob Halverson and his team do an exceptional job taking care of our customers who travel to Chicago. They've handled multiple 5-figure projects at some of the largest venues and never fail to exceed our customers' expectations. Special thanks to Charlotte Schultz as well, keep up the great work!

I've been working with Brian, and he's really great to work with- very prompt in his responses and always takes the time to say hi when I come in to pick up my orders.
Amanda K. VS Networks
Alphagraphics goes above and beyond in their service. We recently had a mistake on our Annual Report and needed a quick and low cost fix. Emily, our point person at Alphagraphics, was extremely responsive and gave a creative fix so we would have everything within a day without having to do a full reprint order. Amazing!

Krista C. Cojocar Design
Everyone I spoke to was extremely helpful. It can be hard to place an order like this when you don't know exactly what you need, but Emily Srodon was particularly helpful.

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.)

- and more
At Alphagraphics Chicago North, we are here to dream with you how to best use promotional products to leverage yourself against all competitors in your industry.
