WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Everything was wonderful.
Lauren S. Convergent Claim Services
I appreciate the speed and follow through.
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.

I have used Alpha Graphics for work and knew that when I needed some items printed for my own wedding they were the group I trusted for the job. The Alpha Graphics team were not only able to meet my tight turnaround time for delivery but did a fantastic job! Even when we had a hiccup that the file types I sent wouldn't print properly, they quickly reached out and were very helpful to find a solution.

Meghan C. Wilson Dow Group
I was impressed with the speed at which revisions were made when collaborating on the development of my new business card. Since picking up these business cards, people who know me and saw the previous version of my card seem to like the changes and design improvements. Great job alpha graphics! In addition, I would also like to mention that Brian Mudoch made the entire process seamless and it became easy to submit revisions until the final proof was ready to be printed.

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.

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.

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.
