I appreciated how quickly I received responses and how brief but detailed the communication was.
Brandi M. ImmersieveTouch
Emily is a rockstar.
Charlie G. Charlie Guild
The entire process: the bidding, the files submission and proofs, final printing and delivery was all excellent! Your team was great to work with, especially Emily Srodon!
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.

Charlie S. CBRE
Responsive and reliable - I would definitely recommend!
Emily P. L3 Hospitality Group, LLC
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
Rob Halverson and his team do an exceptional job taking care of our customers who travel to Chicago. They've handled multiple 5-figure projects at some of the largest venues and never fail to exceed our customers' expectations. Special thanks to Charlotte Schultz as well, keep up the great work!

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!

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.
