HOW DO I CHOOSE THE RIGHT PRINT PARTNER?
Choosing a print partner can a challenge for many businesses. Here are some of the elements of a print partner you can look for to help you make the best selection for your business:
Are they local? Sometimes it’s very convenient to have a local printer who you can discuss complex projects with in person. Having a local printer may also allow you to review proofs or select your paper before proceeding with a print project.
Do they have broad capabilities? Consider the types of printing your business may need. Are these offered by your printer? What types of printing are offered? Look for strong capabilities in digital printing, offset printing, and large format printing. This covers the widest range of materials you may need to be produced and can simplify your life.
WHAT PAPER OPTIONS ARE THERE?
At AlphaGraphics, we offer a wide range of papers for many different types of applications. From simple copy paper to adhesive vinyls, we have you covered. Here are some of the many types of papers you may need to have your print projects looking fantastic:
- Uncoated Paper
- Coated or Glossy Papers
- Cotton and Recycled Papers
- Synthetics and Tree-Free Papers
- Textured – Linen, Felt and other Textured Papers
- Paper of Vinyl Adhesives Papers
- Standard Copy Paper
- Poster Paper Options
- And many more!
WHAT TYPE OF PRINTING SHOULD I CHOOSE?
The type of printing used should be chosen based on your desired finish, budget, and timeframe. An expert printer will help you select the printing and paper that will be the best for your specific situation and needs.
- Offset Printing – This type of “traditional” printing is most suited to large quantities of printed materials or printing that requires specific colors – the Pantone Matching System. Offset printing can sometimes accommodate larger sheets of paper and uses a liquid ink that is applied to the paper (as opposed to a toner).
- Digital Printing – Digital printing is the right choice when you need a small number of prints quickly. Digital is also where you have the most variety of paper options – especially synthetic and interesting papers that give you a different look. Digital printing is also the way to print personalized and customized materials when you’re sending out direct mail or other personal campaign materials.
- Large-Format Printing – If you need something that is bigger than 11x17 inches, you’ll normally need to have it printed on a large-format printing machine. This can include things like engineering plans, posters, banners, vinyl graphics, rigid signs, and many more types of materials. We’ve got you covered when it comes to large-format printing.

ALL ABOUT PRINTING
ARE THERE PRINT SIZE LIMITATIONS?
Yes, and no. Our digital copiers will take sheet sizes as small as 4.25” x 5.5” up to 13” x 19”. Traditional offset can accept sheet sizes up to 12” x 18”. Our in-house large format printers can produce graphics up to 41.5” wide. If you have specific questions about our sizing options, please do not hesitate to give us a call.
WHAT IS A PROOF AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
In printing terms, a proof is a one-off copy of your document after all modifications and printing setup processes have been completed. It is your last, and best, opportunity to make sure that your print job comes out the way you envisioned. By carefully inspecting the proof, you can help ensure an accurate, flawless delivery of your print job the first time.
DO YOU REQUIRE MINIMUM QUANTITIES ON ANY OF YOUR PRODUCTS?
Nope! Some printing methods may be more cost-effective than others, but our professional staff are happy to work with you to determine which printing method is best for your project.
DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT COLOR SEPARATIONS OR HALF-TONE PRINTING TO GET MY JOB COMPLETED?
Absolutely not! We handle all the "back-end" production for you.
The terms are pretty easy to understand, though. Color separation refers to our offset printing process, where we use cyan, magenta, yellow, and black in four separate plates that go directly to the press. These four colors can create almost any color you can imagine!
Half-tone printing refers to converting a solid tone of black ink or one color into tiny dots that are invisible to the eye to create your image. You see a solid image, but it’s really created from the spacing of these tiny dots.
IS WHITE CONSIDERED A PRINTING COLOR?
Not typically. Because white is the default color of paper, it is simply recognized as the absence of ink.
WHAT PAPER TYPES DO YOU OFFER?
We have a large collection of “house” stocks in our production area. If you have a specific style in mind, we can check our in-house inventory to see if our selection is able to match your tastes. Or, we’ll check with our paper vendors to see what they have on hand. Keep in mind that special stocks or materials may require bulk purchasing from suppliers.
WHAT IS THE PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM?
The Pantone Matching System (PMS) is a color reproduction standard in which colors all across the spectrum are each identified by a unique, independent number. The use of PMS allows us to precisely match colors and maintain color consistency throughout the printing process.
WHY DO THE PRINTED COLORS LOOK DIFFERENT THAN THE COLORS ON MY SCREEN?
In short, printers and monitors produce color in different ways. Monitors use the RGB (red, green, blue) color model, which usually supports a wider spectrum of colors. Printers use the CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) color model, which can reproduce most—but not all—of the colors in the RGB color model.
Depending on the equipment used, CMYK generally matches 85–90% of the colors in the RGB model. When a color is selected from the RGB model that is out of the range of the CMYK model, the application chooses the closest matching color. Programs like Adobe Photoshop will allow you to choose which color will be replaced; others may not. We’ll provide you with a sample print right before we print your job to ensure a "what-you-see-is-what-you-get" final product.
