Emily is a rockstar.

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.

Responsive and reliable - I would definitely recommend!

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

Amanda K. VS Networks
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!

PORTABLE BANNERS FOR EVERY CHICAGO EVENT
Whether you are a small or large business, located here in Chicago or anywhere around the world, portable displays are a very cost effective way to draw customers to your business. If you are constantly going back and forth to trade shows at McCormick place or run a hop up business, portable and collapsible displays make perfect sense for you. With a large number of options available in terms of size and quality, retractable banners and hop up banners (or step and repeats as many here in Chicago call them) could really draw the attention your business needs.
If you are a Chicago business person who frequently goes on trips to promote your goods or services at trade shows, conferences and exhibitions, then you will enjoy the benefits of using retractable banners at your next promotional event. Retractable banners come in handy for use at neighborhood craft fairs as well as exhibition cubicles at mega exhibition events. Stop by McCormick Place during a show and you will see them everywhere. The Wells St art festival also had a bunch this year.
Retractable banners are cost effective, lightweight and very effective in conveying your brand message. With banners typically measuring 33.5” x 89” in width and height respectively, they are designed to enable it to roll away into an aluminum housing which serves as the base of the stand. Normally weighing less than 5kg, roll up banners are lightweight and highly portable and easy to transport from one location to the next.
Most retractable banners are available with optional carrying cases that have shoulder straps or handles to enable you to conveniently carry them around to wherever you need to go. These banners also offer good value for money because for the right amount, you can get your basic rollup banner stand which includes graphics and a fabric carry bag. The fact that these banners are portable, durable recyclable, and are available in large sizes to fit your promotional needs, makes rollup banners worth the money. Want to travel through Chicago O’Hare without checking a bag? A retractable banner can be carried on as hand luggage.
Step and repeats are another inexpensive way to increase brand awareness by getting your logo and company name featured in the backgrounds of images that'll be used everywhere, from printed to digital media. A step and repeat banner also adds a distinctly hip factor to any event.
When it comes to the material, you've got two primary choices: vinyl or fabric. Vinyl is both the most common and the most inexpensive. Its major drawback is that it can give off a glare from camera flashes, though some manufacturers offer what's called "matte vinyl" that helps mitigate the problem. Fabric, on the other hand, will never reflect light – unless you go for some sparkle-woven monstrosity. And depending on the material, it can even be 100% wrinkle-free.
Hop-up banners provide free advertising for your brand. If you have an event with a carpet entrance and Hop-up, many of your guests will be snapping photos, often leaving these pictures up on the likes of Facebook and Instagram for months, even years. A step and repeat is a clever way to get recognition for your Chicago business from whomever poses in front of it.
