I had an idea of what I wanted in my head but struggled to describe in using the industry-standard terms. Emily was able to quickly and accurately translate what I was looking for and helped facilitate a speedy (24 hour) turnaround of a finished product that exceeded my expectations. I will not be using another printing service in the future since I have certainly found the best one.

Mimi B. Delos Therapy
In the case of our situation, we had to reprint a block frame adhesive poster. We had sent the original out for the installation along with a PDF file. The associate in charge of my order made me aware that the print was not the same color as the original and allowed us to get a revision. I was worried we would be charged extra for the faulty file and misprint, but the associate was understanding and thoroughly communicated all steps of the process from the pickup, installation, and delivery.
Anthony H. MiQ

I have used Alpha Graphics for work and knew that when I needed some items printed for my own wedding they were the group I trusted for the job. The Alpha Graphics team were not only able to meet my tight turnaround time for delivery but did a fantastic job! Even when we had a hiccup that the file types I sent wouldn't print properly, they quickly reached out and were very helpful to find a solution.

WINDOW GRAPHICS IN CHICAGO, IL
Window graphics are a great way to expose your brand, while making your presence known on a visual stage!
From the doors of your office, branding your company’s board room, to displaying images which represent your company from your windows to the streets below; window graphics are a strong form of advertising. Window graphics are usually made from 4 substrates; dusted crystal, cut vinyl, opaque vinyl, and mesh.
- Dusted Crystal is commonly used on glass, and gives the allusion of etched glass without the cost and labor. The dusted crystal can be applied in full sheets or cut to a logo or certain font of a company.
- Cut vinyl is a great substrate to show off your brand. There are various colors and finishes to the vinyl to really customize and make an impact on your store front.
- Opaque vinyl is a great way to add privacy. Mesh is an excellent way to send display your brand, without blocking the view from outside. These are the popular substrate which is used on buses.
CUSTOMIZABLE WINDOW GRAPHICS
Window Graphics much like wall and floor graphics have really come into their own in the last few years. Their rise in popularity is directly due to the improvements in mobile camera and camera technology allowing for images with significantly higher resolution than in the past. Second, the improvement in printing technology with larger aqueous and latex printers that can print larger and larger images without virtually any degradation in the image itself. Finally, new substrates for window graphics allow for almost transparent, translucent and opaque backing.
The application of window graphics also involves the question of whether the install is first surface or second surface. First surface window graphics are applied to the exterior of the window so it must be considered to what degree they are subjected to the environment most specifically rain, wind and sun. We have to pay more attention than most being in the great city of Chicago with all types of weather. Second surface window graphics are installed on the inside of the window facing outward. Second Surface window graphics are almost exclusively indoors making the installation, adhesive and substrate less important.
As with wall graphics the increase in the quality of images is just as important with window graphics. Window graphics often require dot patterns and depending on the arrangement and “packing” of the dots people are able to see through the material from the inside. With this said the image quality for window graphics is typically not as important as with wall or floor graphics because the images are typically viewed from greater distances. This matters because at greater distances the human eye can only make out resolution to a point so ultra high resolution at long viewing distances are not necessary.
Substrates for window graphics are typically sourced by Alphagraphics Chicago North from our friends at 3M. As with wall graphics they have been on the cutting edge of window graphic substrates and adhesives. Other competitors such as Avery Dennison have also entered the market and also provide very high quality products.
Window graphics are printed on different materials than wall graphics or floor graphics due to the properties of the glass. This also effects the type of adhesive that is required. The question also needs to be asked to the customer how much (if any) would they like to see from the inside of the window.
The most temporary substrate adhesion for window graphics is the “cling”. The “cling” simply uses static electricity to adhere to the glass making it ideal for temporary displays. As with wall graphics, the next level of adhesion for window graphics are repositionable and removable substrates. The customer’s choice with these is really how long they would like the image to last. Removing substrates from windows is not as difficult as with walls or floors but having a substrate that removes without leaving adhesive residual will save the customers money and make their removal much faster.
Alphagraphics Chicago North is one of the leading provider of window graphics in Chicago. Large or small jobs, we have the most state of the art printing equipment, substrates and top notch installers ready to take on your project. We just need your creativity and desire, we will to the rest. Give us a call, we would be excited to hear from you.
