Emily is a rockstar.

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.

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

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!

POSTERS, PRINTING, AND DESIGN SERVICES IN CHICAGO, IL
If you are looking for a great way to advertise your Chicago business offerings, consider poster printing to get your message across and catch people’s attention! The first step in this process is poster design. You will want to take the time to consider your audience and your message. From there you can begin to make the appropriate decisions about your poster design & print. If this is your first time at the print-rodeo, not to worry, Alphagraphics Chicago North is here to help! With talented design professionals, we have the ability to take your design ideas and turn them into a reality!
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. Once we have a good idea of what you are looking to create, we begin our design process which will follow with rounds of digital proofs for your review. This will allow you to make any adjustments you see fit. Our goal is to provide a final poster design that not only meets but exceeds your expectations. Should you have very minimal reference material for your design – not to worry – our designers can help you conceptualize a final design that is sure to be a standout piece which captures the attention of your Chicago clientele!
If you have experience with poster design and printing, we ask that you provide us with a very straightforward file type for production. Our print requirement includes a print-ready PDF file, which is sized and includes crops and bleeds. The color profile of your design should always be in CMYK, best for print. 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!
