Ellen V. Buzzi-Space
I needed my business cards tweaked and printed post haste to do promotional work at a property I recently sold. I had a simple address change on the existing file and Brian was wonderful to get that done in record time. SOOOO appreciative! I have my full color brochures printed here, professionally finished and bound. I am sure there is much more I can and will plug in to fulfill all my business marketing needs. This is a great STAFF!

Leah E. British International School, The
I recently emailed an alpha graphics team member who's contact information I had saved from a previous order. I was desperate for a last minute order and thought I was out of luck when I learned through email that team member no longer worked for alpha graphics. Not even a half hour later, a different team member emailed me and was able to assist me with my order. Thank you so much for the quick response!

Emily is the best. I have called her with immediate response, and her estimate response is at a healthy rate, which is important for me to quote my client inquires. Thanks!
Aaron S. Fast Signs
Francisco is great!
Heaven R. Heaven Reynolds
My client needed 6' x 4' signs and they got a quote from a vendor in western suburbs. I knew of Alphagraphics' quality of work and excellent service so I got a quote from Fergus, a true professional. The quote was approximately the same as other vendor. I persuaded client to go with Alpha due to top-notch experience. Client ordered direct from another Alpha person while Fergus away from office (forget his name who offered seamless service). Timeframe perfect. Will always go to Alphagraphics for our print needs. Client does plan on reprinting signs.
Lynn T. Interactive Building Solutions
Staff and owner very helpful
Shannon W. Lincoln Park High School
I appreciate working with a local company that was in touch, gave me job updates, and the option to proof material in person before printing. The job was done correctly and on time! I would never have that level of customer support working with an online website.
Nicole M. Nicole Mauser
Quick turnaround, very professional.
Renee B. The William Everett Group
AlphaGraphics totally saved us!! We had ordered stickers through an out-of-state company online and their delivery date was not going to cut it. Alpha was able to get me an immediate quote and turn my order around faster than they had originally quoted!! Also love supporting a local business in the process.

Love working with AlphaGraphics - they are always so prompt in responding as well as sending over our printed material!

Your service, attention to detail and the finished product are always the best!

I have always enjoyed and preferred Fergus Calderwood's account management over Brian or Ken. They're just not as quick to respond or offer alternatives and suggestions.
Chase G. Creative Republic
Francisco was absolutely awesome! If it wasn't for him and AlphaGraphics I would have missed my deadline and potentially lost a client. Can't thank you all enough!

quick and efficient, got exactly what I wanted
Kelly N. Minte, The
Charlotte Schultz has helped me many times with lots of different projects, and the service she provided has been so helpful. There was one specific project recently required a same day turnaround with a complicated job with a really specific paper stock, duplexing, and color matching, that the team at Alpha really saved me on. I really appreciate the super high level of service and quality.

Couldnt have asked for better care. I needed a savior, and you guys came through with tight deadlines.
Yehuda M. Yehuda Marcus
I've used AlphaGraphics multiple times and they always exceed my expectations. This time around I worked with Fergus to have a 30 page book printed and spiral bound, which turned out absolutely perfect! He was so patient with me as I worked through what I wanted. He gave me multiple estimates to help narrow things down and even printed a color proof for me. I definitely recommend working with AlphaGraphics. You can't beat the quality, quick turnaround, and reasonable prices!
Caroline L. Caroline LeBlond
The order we made went completely wrong and we found out about it on Friday evening, your team managed to fix 300 new correct booklets within a night for me and brought it that Saturday morning the show where we were exhibiting. Thanks!

Claudia K. CMEology
I am based in Portland and needed to have prints done for colleagues attending an event in Chicago. Doing this sort of thing remotely can be very challenging, but Francisco was wonderful to work with. He was responsive to my inquiries, called to make sure there was clear communication and delivered everything I needed on time and looking great. I really appreciate his work and will absolutely use Alpha Graphics for future events in Chicago.

Lauren W. Lauren Whitney Photography
Wonderful and easy
Tatiana B. Learnship Corporation
Fergus was absolutely fantastic to work with. I was printing displays for my mother's funeral. the print quality was excellent, and I got tons of compliments on them. The best part was that I was trying to figure out how to get them in a suitcase. Fergus suggested they could be shipped directly to the church. This worked beautifully and saved me an enormous hassle. I would not have considered it without his advice. He provided excellent service and reminded me why I chose Alphagraphics.
Tori B. Tori Brovet
Fast turnaround time

I had a hard deadline and you worked very hard to help me get the product on time. A special Shoutout to Francisco. He was nothing short of awesome and understanding!
Francisco M. Graphics 255, LLC - Marketing
Brain Murdoch is Awesome! I've only been working with Alpha for a few months now, but the attention to customer service and the quality of the advice/material/knowledge is outstanding. And thats without ever even stepping foot in the physical office on Evergreen yet! Looking forward to working with Alpha on more projects in the future. Thanks guys!

Communication via email was prompt. And turnaround was fast!
Amanda I. Slate Design Ltd.
Catherine Lauro in Chicago was excellent to work with, went above and beyond. Took our fairly rudimentary graphics (not in PDF) and turned them into perfect postcards. Recommended the right cardstock for glossy front, write-on back. Pricing was the best of 3 local quotes. When I couldn't make it during open hours to pick up the order, Catherine delivered to my downtown office, in person!
Amanda G. Amanda Grace Edwards
Great experience working with Rob and the Alphagraphics team. Will recommend to friends and look forward to utilizing their services again!
Jd C. Guaranteed Rate
Brian is always very responsive and accommodating to our requests. The turnaround time is always very short, and I never have to worry about meeting deadlines or having any delays. He makes the entire process very easy!

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!
