Mimi B. Delos Therapy
In the case of our situation, we had to reprint a block frame adhesive poster. We had sent the original out for the installation along with a PDF file. The associate in charge of my order made me aware that the print was not the same color as the original and allowed us to get a revision. I was worried we would be charged extra for the faulty file and misprint, but the associate was understanding and thoroughly communicated all steps of the process from the pickup, installation, and delivery.

COLOR PRINTING IN CHICAGO, ILLINOIS
If you are looking to create eye catching marketing materials, which can be displayed throughout the streets of Chicago, color printing is a great process that can help your advertising standout amongst your competition. Whether you are printing flyers, posters, banners, or business cards, the method in which you print your marketing materials can have a huge impact on the promotion of your business.
Tell a Story
Printing in color can generate an even greater customer response as compared to printing in black & white. Color can tell a story, signify your brand, evoke an emotional response, and make your advertising come to life. This is important to consider as you look to turn your vision into something tangible. To achieve the best results with color printing, it is incredibly important to make sure your files are set up correctly. If your files are not set up correctly prior to print, your final product may appear much different than what you were expecting.
The standard four color process for digital printing is CMYK. This refers to Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black (K), which are mixed together to achieve a wide range of colors. It is important to distinguish CMYK from RGB. RGB is the color model that is used for the web. It is comprised of the primary colors, Red, Green & Blue. RGB color profiles will not translate accurately to a digital printer which is calibrated to CMYK. In order to achieve the most accurate colors from your print file, you must make sure the profile is set to CMYK.
Another great way to ensure that you achieve accurate color prints is to have a hard copy proof printed before you run your entire order. Proofs allow you to see your design in real time. They allow you to proof your colors and make sure they are coming out exactly as you expect. For digital printing jobs, we at Alphagraphics Chicago North offer proofs at no additional cost. This process is extremely beneficial in order to guarantee that you have all of your production specs in order. Proofs also allow you to review your stock selection and see how well your design works with the particular stock that you have selected. Anytime you have a 4-color design that has a full flood of color on one or multiple pages, a coated stock tends to yield better results. You will achieve better coverage and saturation as opposed to printing on a matte or textured matte stock.
A Variety of High-Quality Options
Color printing can take on a variety of different forms. Whether you are printing a full-color banner that is to be displayed in the River North area, or business cards with color-edge printing that can be handed out at a conference or event held in Chicago, the print method that you choose can have a major impact on your final results. There are so many processes that you can take advantage of, and we are more than happy to go over these options with you! When it comes to color printing, the possibilities are (almost) endless, and it is always in your best interest to ask as many questions as you can. Often times people do not know how many possibilities there are, and that can be a limiting factor when it comes to getting the most bang for your buck.
Some of our options include:
- Conventional and custom paper sizes
- A wide selection of colored stock papers
- Professional binding options
- Custom covers
- Packaging and shrinking options
When it comes to color printing, we at Alphagraphics Chicago north encourage you to begin by thinking outside the box. From there, let us help you narrow down the method that will help you achieve the most outstanding results, while still working within your timeframe & budget.
