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.
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.
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.

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. He and his team are fantastic at meeting deadlines and communicating throughout the course of a project.

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.

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.
Thinking about this type of signage for your business? Stop by our production house in River North or make an appointment to see us at our Michigan offices. Our Chicago project managers can create a custom quote based on your specific needs.
