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.

Nothing to be honest. I just don't do much proactive recommending in my day to day life.
Micah B. Pure Storage
Everything was handled very quickly and professionally for me. Very happy with the service.
Joanna G. Joanna Gusich
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.

Ken D. has been great to work with. Our orders have all looked professionally produced and delivered with great turn around times. He’s leaving today for a few days off and I told him I was going to have a hard time coping with him not being a phone call away. He deserves a break.

OFFSET PRINTING IN CHICAGO, IL
But, in an age where quick, digital printing becomes more and more accessible, it's easy to forget the careful craft and unparalleled quality of traditional printing techniques. Offset printing, or, traditional printing, as some call it, is a process dating back more than 100 years, which involves hand-mixed inks, attention to detail, and a skilled artisan to produce the highest quality and most customizable printing solutions the industry has to offer.
Not only is the quality unmatched, but offset printing allows for things that other printing techniques don't, such as:
- Printing up to 4 colors
- Matching a color to the Pantone Matching System (PMS)
- Using environmentally friendly soy-based inks
- Different paper finishes (i.e. laid, linen, vellum, etc.)
- Printing heavier paper weight (up to 130# cover weight stock)
- Stationery packages incl. envelopes,
- Letterhead Printing
- Business Card Printing
When it comes to printing the highest quality, there really is no substitute. We are thrilled to have two offset printing presses and a team of skilled artisans to give you access to the best quality printing in the industry.

ADVANTAGES FOR NONPROFITS IN CHICAGO
Nonprofits do A LOT of printing! From material for fundraising galas to informative newsletters, printed material makes up a huge part of of the way they run and operate. Whether its an organization with limitless resources or a shoestring budget, we see these types of organizations underutilizing one key type of printing.
HIGH-QUALITY LETTERHEAD AT A LOW COST
With a nonprofit, communication is key, and quality letterhead allows you to have stock of standard company letterhead that can be run through digital printers at your office every time you send out a letter. This allows you to have the great quality of letterhead and take advantage of the low cost of printing black and white inks on your office's inkjet. Offset is the only way this can be done because digital inks will melt and smear when run through an inkjet printer.
Nonprofits need this just as much as a for profit business. One of the reasons many of the brands you recognize so well are consistent is because they have strict rules about which colors will be associated with their company and how they will be printed. Offset printing uses PMS ink standards that will never change, whereas a digital printer will always be slightly different from one another. It may seem trivial, but something as simple as a color can make or break your audience's connection with your brand. Traditional and Offset printing is a great way to maintain quality and consistency with all of the printing that your nonprofit organization does, and at AlphaGraphics Chicago, we are positioned to provide you with high-quality offset printing at the most competitive prices in the city, especially because we are one of the few left that even offer this type of printing.
