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.

STATE-OF-THE-ART DIGITAL PRINTING IN CHICAGO
Digital Printing has continued to rise in both importance and capabilities over the last few decades. Manufacturers such as Xerox, Ricoh, Konica Minolta and Canon have been competing for years to improve print quality and speed all while reducing costs and increasing efficiency.
It wasn’t too many years ago that Offset Printing was still the gold standard. The original printing press was founded in Germany around the 1400’s and to this day much of the technology has not changed a great deal. Digital Printing started to take hold in the 1960’s with Xerox and others beginning to first make production quality black and white machines and then eventually color. Digital Printing revolutionized the printing industry and had a lot to do with creating a new industry of “Quick Printers” who no longer had to spend millions of dollars on massive machines.
Early digital printing really struggled with quality but speed, versatility and the lack of set up time really caused it to begin to take hold. While commercial printers continued to improve their speed, quality, and efficiencies, manufacturers turned to making the machines smaller and smaller. The first smaller digital printers began to show up in offices around the world considerably increasing the productivity of virtually every company they were introduced in. Later as the actual sizes and dimensions of these machines continued to get smaller they became used in individual office and home environments.
The biggest reason for the rise of digital printing in the world of commercial printing though is it’s significant increase in the quality of the images. It has really only been in the last few years that digital printing has begun to rival the quality of offset printing. As technologies continue to improve there will come a day very soon where image quality is equal to or better than offset and while offset will still be a tremendous option for large run jobs, it's place in the industry is beginning to shrink.
AlphaGraphics has two state of the art digital printers. We have both a Ricoh 7110 and 651 offering our customers the highest quality digital printing available today. The Ricoh 7110 is our newest machine. It provides the highest resolution and best quality images available anywhere. The machine is also unique in that it can print on much thicker stock materials and at a higher speed of over seventy pages per minute. This allows us to offer customers the thicker stocks and higher quality that they demand and keeps us one step ahead of our competition.
Digital Printing at AlphaGraphics is really the backbone of our business. We offer all types of products through digitally printing including business cards, letterhead, brochures, flyers, books, presentations, labels, direct mailers, envelopes, stickers, and vinvitations to name a few. We are able to offer customers the highest quality at the lowest possible price due to our capacity and efficiencies with our machines.
