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.

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

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!

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.
