LARGE FORMAT PRINTING
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!

Your turnaround time is also impressive, even during the coronavirus pandemic you fulfilled our our quickly and thoughtfully. AlphaGraphics is always my first choice.

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.

LARGE FORMAT PRINTING PRODUCED IN CHICAGO , IL
Many people have seen or read this term in publications or correspondence but what does that really mean? Large Format Printing can be broken down into several subcategories including graphics, signs, posters, banners, backlit’s and other printed items which are, well “large”. Let’s take a look at each of these.
Probably the largest growing segment in Large Format Printing are custom graphics. New innovations with image quality and adhesives has allowed for materials to adhere to walls, windows and floors but importantly be easily removed without damage to the surface. Graphics can be indoor or outdoor and can be placed on a number of different substrates from manufacturers such as 3M and Avery Dennison. Virtually any image can be placed on substrates providing the DPI and resolution are sufficient for the size.
Customers searching for large format printing often mean graphics and they are as versatile as the substrates and graphics themselves. Schools, hotels, real estate companies, hospitals, and even companies with “standard” offices have been able to transform and enhance their indoor and outdoor spaces.
The largest component of large format printing has traditionally been signs. Signs are typically used to inform and direct people both in indoor and outdoor settings. Signs come in an almost infinite amount of sizes, shapes and colors and can be printed on paper, vinyl, metal, wood and fabric just to name a few options.
When people are looking for signs they often migrate to a provider that has a “sign” in their name. There are many of these including AG Signs which is division of Alphagraphics. While we are a little bit newer to the game our capabilities in traditional printing magnify our capabilities in large format printing and signs. We operate more machines and equipment and our capabilities in graphic design, bindery and packaging give us a distinct advantage in the sign world.
Banners, Posters, Backlit’s, and Tradeshow Materials
These are all other components of large format printing but no less important. Image quality is one of the main distinguishers in this space as well as of course price. One of the newest innovation in these areas is the introduction of a new substrate, fabric. It is now possible to print any image on fabric making them look just as spectacular as if printed on paper or vinyl. Fabric has the obvious advantage of significantly less weight and makes portability much easier. Finally fabric has several environmental advantages for recycling. Customers should start to see fabric replacing vinyl for many of their jobs going forward.
Large Format Printing is a very big part of what Alphagraphics does on a day to day basis through our AG Signs department. We have an incredible amount of capabilities and can assist customers with virtually any of their large format printing needs.
