I had an idea of what I wanted in my head but struggled to describe in using the industry-standard terms. Emily was able to quickly and accurately translate what I was looking for and helped facilitate a speedy (24 hour) turnaround of a finished product that exceeded my expectations. I will not be using another printing service in the future since I have certainly found the best one.

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.
Anthony H. MiQ

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.

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.
