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!

Marina R. Studio M for Good
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.
Shannon P. Chicago Youth Centers
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.

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.

Brian and his team at AlphaGraphics do excellent work. Brian has a deep knowledge of the printing industry and all the print and large format products at his disposal, and is very thorough with his clients to develop an understanding of the project at hand and provide the best solution.

Design. It’s as simple as this: do you have a print-ready PDF file you’re sending us to print? If you do, great! Make sure your PDF file is set up with the appropriate crop and bleed marks and send it over via email or via our file sharing website.
If your design isn’t print-ready, we’re happy to help out! AlphaGraphics Chicago North features a full-service, in-house graphic design studio, so we’re happy to help with any edits needed, whether it’s a major design overhaul or minor tweaks to photos and text. You’ll need to provide all photos, logos, taglines, and text, and our team of design experts will work quickly to show a range of different design options. For full-service graphic design options from scratch, the first round of graphic design proofs can be ready within 48 hours. Subsequent rounds of graphic design changes and edits are typically turned around within 24 hours, and you’re welcome to make as many design changes as necessary until we produce artwork you love.
Select your paper and finishing options. Sometimes this can be the trickiest part of the whole process; there are literally thousands of paper stocks on which postcards can be printed. Thankfully, we’ve got your back throughout this process! Not only are our staffers happy to help recommend paper stock options, AlphaGraphics is always happy to print complimentary hard-copy proofs out of our Lincoln Park-based production facility. Can’t decide between glossy and matte? Not sure if you’d like smooth stock or something with a bit more texture? Print proofs on multiple paper options and decide which paper you like better in person! Hard copy proofs can be printed within 24 hours of your request.
Want to add a cool finishing touch to your postcards? Ask us how to help your piece make a true impact! From budget-friendly options like spot UV or full UV coating to higher-end finishes like embossing or foil stamping, we have options to help your card stand out in the crowd!
Spread your message! Once design and paper stock have been selected, we can get to print! Our team of production specialists can have most orders printed within 24 hours and then it’s time to get your message out there! Bring your cards to expos, festivals, conferences, and events, or use them for in-house events.
If you’re planning on mailing your postcards, let AlphaGraphics help with the grunt work. Our Lincoln Park-based production team can quickly merge recipient information onto the front of your postcards, add appropriate postage, and get these into the mail for you.
