Fantastic quality and service.
I mostly corresponded with Ali at the Apple Valley location during my ordering process. She was lovely to work with and always prompt in her responses. It was my first time ordering from AlphaGraphics, so I didn’t really know what to expect. I’m thrilled to say my project came out infinitely better than I expected. I ordered a 16 x 20 print that included a photo and script. The print was crisp and the color was vibrant. Overall, I’m incredibly happy with my experience.
Everyone that has helped us, especially Jessica, has been amazing. Very timely follow-up in every order and they go the extra mile to try to get you everything you want / need. No complaints here!
I live in Northern Utah and needed something printed for my aunt who lives near Minneapolis. Angela helped me get the document resized and ready for large-format printing. She also recommended lamination, which was genius! I also needed this on a deadline! Angela was amazing at getting things ready and printed - especially with her client at a distance! I am very impressed and my aunt was thrilled with the finished product. Thank you so much for your hard work and incredible customer service! Big kudos to Angela!!
It was convenient and easy to work with Ali and the graphic design. My needs were addressed and our final product is perfect.
Did the whole thing by email and post. Thanks for making this as easy as possible!

Service was great. I was in a bind and needed help pretty quickly. From the time the telephone was answered until I picked up my documents two hours later, everything was quick and smooth. Customer service was great. I was at a FedEx Kinkos office getting poor service when I did a search on my phone on google, found you and telephoned. Thank you!
Just a great experience -- Kellie was professional, knowledgeable, helpful, responsive, polite. Will be getting in touch with her for any future printing needs. Thanks!

Wondering how to turn your ground-breaking vision into a high-impact visual? Need a short run print project for your corporate event next week? Whatever the job, AlphaGraphics marketing and print professionals have you covered.
Check out the answers to some of our most frequently received questions below. Don’t see what you’re looking for? Contact us right now and a friendly team member will be happy to assist you.
HOW DO I GET AN ESTIMATE?
You can fill out an online estimate request form, or call and talk with one of our team members.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY ORDER TO BE COMPLETED?
Most jobs take 24-48 hours to complete once approval is received; though offset press projects take longer. If you’re working within a time constraint, let us know when you call for a quote. We can look at our print production schedule to ensure that you will meet your deadline.
DO YOU OFFER DELIVER AND PICK-UP?
Yes, we offer free local delivery and pickup of your projects within our main service areas.
WHAT FILE FORMAT IS PREFERRED FOR DIGITAL DOCUMENTS?
We prefer PDFs (Portable Document Format) with a minimum 1/8” bleed and crop marks. Most office and design programs allow you to save or export your files into a PDF format. Occasionally, the original file may be needed if artwork edits are required.
WHAT RESOLUTION DO MY PHOTOS AND GRAPHICS NEED TO BE SET TO?
Resolution should be set to 300 dpi. Pictures and graphics pulled from the internet are often low resolution, typically 72 dpi or 96 dpi. Avoid these graphics, as they will appear pixelated and blocky when printed. Also, save all photos in CMYK mode, not RGB when possible. Images saved in RGB mode may not print properly. If you are unable to save your image in CYMK mode, please let us know.
HOW DO I KNOW IF MY FONTS WILL LOOK CORRECT?
The best way to ensure your artwork fonts will print correctly is to send them as outlined objects in your original file. If your program doesn’t allow this, packaging or sending us the fonts will work as well. If you have a question about how to send your fonts properly, please call us and we’ll be glad to help.
