Brian Murdoch has been great.

Always good service and easy communication
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!
Edward C. 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.
Lisa G. DISPENSARY 33
Love working with AlphaGraphics - they are always so prompt in responding as well as sending over our printed material!
Emmy K. Oranj
Your service, attention to detail and the finished product are always the best!
Nancy N. Nancy Neill Designs
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!
Danny C. Good Neighbor Rx
quick and efficient, got exactly what I wanted
Kelly N. The Minte
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.
Allie H. Allie Hasson Paper Goods

Angeliki G. Angeliki Garris
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!

Fergus was very helpful when I was placing my order and the price/deals were incredible. Thank you for helping us with our project!

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.
Lindsey C. GOOD DATA
Fergus was an absolute delight to work with. He made great recommendations to improve the quality of my printed material. I would HIGHLY recommend working with AlphaGraphics to anyone who asks.

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
Doris H. Loyola University Chicago - School of Social Work
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 dba AlphaGraphics
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!

Ally G. MKT Properties
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

Creativity is Boundless
When beginning your consultation, we will ask that you provide us with as much reference information as you can in order to help us formulate your poster design.

If you have experience with poster design and printing, we ask that you provide us with a very straightforward file type for production.

Should you have any questions as to how your files should be set up, do not hesitate to consult with your Alphagraphics Chicago North sales representative.
Poster Printing Options
Posters come in a variety sizes, and at our Chicago North center, we have the capabilities to print posters at a maximum width of 60 inches x however many inches long. We advise that your poster design be just shy of 60 inches wide to allow for the necessary bleed. Poster prints can also be produced using a variety of different materials. From standard matte or gloss poster paper to adhesive vinyl which can be mounted to a variety of different substrates, we can advise on the right material for your project.
Let’s say your business is taking part in one of Chicago’s many conventions and/or tradeshows that happen almost every week throughout the year. You will likely need posters, whether they be mounted or unmounted, to display on an easel or hang in your booth. Consult with our sales/design team in regards to your poster design and print options and we can advise as to what is the best method for your project.
Recently I processed an order which involved over 50, 8.5 x 11 prints which were printed on a gloss adhesive paper stock and mounted to white foam core. Our client, based in Chicago’s River North area, was traveling and needed these table top displays printed, mounted, and shipped to their conference. We also added easel backs to each piece so that our client could display these in different areas of their booth, throughout the duration of their conference. Easel backs come in a variety of different sizes and can be applied to mounted posters as large as 24 x 36 inches.
We asked our client for a print-ready PDF file which they were able to provide, and from there we were able to turn this project around in just a couple of days. This is just one example of poster prints on a smaller scale, produced in a larger quantity. Reach out to our sales team today to inquire about your next poster design and print job! Whether it be on a small or large scale, we can help you every step of the way!
