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.

Nothing to be honest. I just don't do much proactive recommending in my day to day life.
Micah B. Pure Storage
Everything was handled very quickly and professionally for me. Very happy with the service.
Joanna G. Joanna Gusich
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.

Ken D. has been great to work with. Our orders have all looked professionally produced and delivered with great turn around times. He’s leaving today for a few days off and I told him I was going to have a hard time coping with him not being a phone call away. He deserves a break.

TRANSFORM YOUR SPACE WITH WALL DISPLAY DESIGN
New substrates, adhesives, and printing methods combined with higher resolution cameras and camera phones have significantly increased the number of uses for wall displays. Indoor and outdoor applications continue to increase, often transforming bland, painted walls or concrete block walls into canvases for amazing designs. Before embarking on a wall display design, a few items to consider:
Wall display design really begins with the image itself. The first question is whether the image resolution is high enough for the selected location. Images with lower resolution can look distorted and blurred when blown up. There are recommended resolutions for all sizes of wall displays. Typically, the farther away the viewing angle the less the human eye can distinguish clarity so these images need not be as precise. A designer creating a custom image must take into account how the image will look fully enlarged versus simply on a computer screen. Images should not be too “busy” or intricate that they are not fully recognizable at larger sizes. Colors too will vary in terms of how they look in sunlight versus other types of lighting.
Any wall display design must take into account from where the image will be predominantly viewed. This is not very difficult for indoor applications but it is a very different situation outdoors. Photographic and printing equipment have actually gotten so good that some advances are indistinguishable to the human eye. Designers do however need to be very precise with images that are viewed indoors, as these can be viewed at almost point blank range. This makes image and print quality critical for optimal results.
Substrate Coatings (Gloss, Semi-Gloss, Matte)
Images for wall display designs will look different on the various coatings which are typically offered. A designer must take into account how the image can be visually optimized and balance that with how it looks during different times of the day. Again, this is not typically an issue with indoor applications unless they are placed in direct sunlight, but can be a huge factor with those that are outdoor. The glare of the sun often limits the options for gloss and semi-gloss coatings to avoid glare. Glossy and semi-glossy finishes are typically used indoors and away from direct sunlight. In these cases a designer is looking for the image to “pop” and stand out from its surroundings as much as possible. Matte finishes are used primarily outdoors but can also be used indoors, often for landscape type images. Outdoors, the matte finish absorbs the rays and glare from the sun. Colors tend to look richer and truer to their originally intended design.
Alphagraphics Chicago North employs two seasoned Graphic Designers who can handle virtually any wall display design. Indoor or outdoor, no matter the size, substrate, or finish, they can create virtually anything a customer could possibly imagine or simply find.
