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.

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.

JUST GETTING STARTED?
The first thing to consider when choosing the right outdoor sign for your business or event is how your message will be viewed. If your message is intended to be read close-up, then a small detailed font will do. But if you’re looking to grab attention from afar it’s recommended that your message be 1” of text height for every 10’ of viewable distance. So, if your farmers market stand is trying to attract attention from a half-block away, selecting letters that are at least 5’ tall will be your best bet. If space is limited, think vertically! Elevate your message with informative and engaging outdoor signs that can be raised on a popup stand or mounted onto boulevard light poles.
COLOR IS POWERFUL
In the advertising and marketing world, it is crucial to understand how colors affect visibility and mood. Vivid color combinations create high-impact visuals that help make your message come to life. When selecting a color format for your outdoor sign, you can improve readability by selecting a high-contrast combination; like yellow text on a navy-blue background. Finally, don’t forget to think outside the box; Including a graphic like a bouquet of flowers along with a simple message like ‘Cut Fresh Daily’ delivers a visually striking message that makes a resounding statement with ease.
MATERIALS MAKE THE DIFFERENCE
If you live in the mid-west you know heavy moisture, high winds and direct sunlight are included in most extended forecasts. The length of use and purpose of your sign will help determine which option is best. For instance, Aluminum or di-bond signs are sturdy, rigid options intended for permanent or long term use. Alternatively, vinyl banners can easily be transported to several outdoor events to direct attendees and promote awareness. Your AlphaGraphics Chicago North consultant will advise you on proper banner maintenance and transport of your banner, allowing your outdoor sign to last months longer.
Our technicians are highly skilled and trained to both fabricate and install the highest quality sign to meet or exceed the expectations of your business or organization. From start to finish the experts at AlphaGraphics will make sure you have the tools and support needed to get the job done right!
