Business cards turned out perfect. The person that I worked with made things easy.

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!

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,

CUSTOM VEHICLE WRAPS IN CHICAGO, IL
If you are looking for a great way to advertise your Chicago business & be seen by potential clientele, consider car wraps!
Car wraps allow you to create eye catching designs which can help promote your business and get people to take notice and inquire about your services. Car wraps come in a variety of forms, and while they are an investment, they are an investment that can have a great return. You may think that getting your car wrapped is a very difficult and complicated task – not to worry – at Alphagraphics Chicago North, our sales/design team is here to help you every step of the way.
SOME QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF
If you are thinking about getting your crap wrapped, you will need to ask yourself a few questions in order to begin the process.
- What is my budget for this car wrap?
- How much of my vehicle do I want to wrap?
- Will I be able to provide print-ready design files for my printer?
- Will I need design services?
These questions are key when it comes to having an informed discussion with your sales rep.
GETTING YOUR CUSTOM VEHICLE WRAP STARTED
Let’s say you would like to do a partial vehicle wrap and you will need complete design services. You will want to begin by deciding what areas of the car you would like to have wrapped. From there, your Alphagraphics Chicago North sales rep can pull the appropriate design template for your particular vehicle model. You can then provide your Alphagrapics Chicago North rep with your design ideas for the wrap. They will then be able to provide an accurate quote for the design, print, and installation of your car wrap.
Once pricing has been approved, our talented design team at Alphagraphics Chicago North will begin to create digital proofs for your review. This process will likely include 2-3 rounds of digital proofs for your review. These proofs allow you to make edits and tweak your design so that your final prints are exactly as you want them. Car wraps are an investment and it is our job to make sure your final product meets your expectations and allows the city of Chicago to take notice of your stellar marketing efforts!
MATERIAL OPTIONS FOR VEHICLE WRAPS
There are a few materials that can be used for car wraps. The most common is standard vinyl, which can be used to cover the body of your vehicle. Should you decide that you want to cover the windows as well, you can explore perforated vinyl. Perforated window film is a 6 millimeter calendared vinyl. It is a removable material and has a life expectancy of 1 year. Calendered vinyl refers to the process in which the material is manufactured. This film comes in various levels of coverage – coverage meaning the amount of printed material vs the amount of material that is cut away. A standard perforated window film is 65/35 (65% covered, 35% open).
It is required by law that any film going on a vehicle must be a ratio of 50/50 (50% covered, 50% open) for safety purposes. It is also required that any over-laminates that are applied to perforated window films must be optically clear. Over-laminates are applied to preserve the durability of the film. Given Chicago’s inclement weather, over-laminates may be worth consideration, however in most cases these are difficult to apply given the texture of the material & this process is typically not recommended for car wraps that include perforated window film.
PRODUCING YOUR CUSTOM VEHICLE WRAP
Once your designs have been approved and the templates are sized for print, you can expect production to take at least a week. Once the graphics are printed, you can bring your vehicle to the site for installation. It is very important that your vehicle is washed with no wax treatments. This will ensure a successful install of the graphics. If possible, it is also helpful if your vehicle can sit inside overnight, so as to allow the surface temperature to be at least 50 degrees Fahrenheit. If your car wrap installation happens to coincide with one of Chicago’s hearty winters, you will definitely need to keep the vehicle inside overnight.
Chicago is the city to see and be seen, and you are sure to attract attention with a well-designed car wrap! Reach out to one of Alphagraphics Chicago North sales representatives to see how you can turn your vehicle into an on-the-go advertisement!
