FROM OUR OWNERS,

CAROL AND ED LECLAIR

Before AlphaGraphics Carol served as Director of Adult Education and Ed was a sales executive, so we understand how to analyze a problem and just how important every solution is to a business.

OUR PASSION

AlphaGraphics Raleigh is not your grandparent's printer, we're a powerhouse of the latest technological advances for communicating visually. Our favorite question to answer from customers is "What can you do for me?" They take one look at our Wall of Art to see potential options and choices and the ideas and excitement begin.

With backgrounds in adult education and manufacturing sales respectively, owners and operators Carol and Ed LeClair focus on helping businesses grow by getting them noticed. We understand that print is one necessary component of a successful marketing campaign because touch is an important part of remembering information.

Between our tenured and talented team of professionals (139 years collective experience) and our high-end equipment, we bring budding ideas to life to get results. Sometimes that means putting together a direct mail strategy to grow a seasonally based business. Other times that means printing and shipping clinical research studies reliably through customs procedures all over the world.

While our work is cutting-edge, the one area we do resemble your grandparent's printer is in service. Customers remark at our clean and organized center, that a person always answers the phone and that they know and love our "work dogs" who join us everyday in the office.

THE PRIDE WE TAKE IN OUR WORK AND OUR COMMITMENT TO OUR CUSTOMERS AND THE GREATER COMMUNITY HAS EARNED US:

  • AlphaGraphics Gold Circle Award, recognition as a top producer
  • PODi Awards - 1st place for multi-media campaign, 2nd place for design
  • Woman-Owned Business certification by the state of North Carolina
  • FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification

Carol LeClair - Owner

Carol LeClair has co-owned the AlphaGraphics in Cary, North Carolina since February, 2008 with her husband Ed. In May, 2012, we became a woman-owned company certified by the state of North Carolina. Together, we expanded and opened a Sales & Marketing office in North Raleigh. Carol’s focus is in Sales and Marketing. Through her and her husband’s efforts they have successfully undertaken marketing campaigns that have garnered impressive responses and received AlphaGraphics Corporate, PODi and NAPL awards.

Carol brings to AlphaGraphics more than 25 years experience in educational administration, budgeting, grant writing, building community relationships within the Adult Education Division of the Buffalo City School District.

Carol is a graduate of State University College of Buffalo receiving her Bachelors and Masters of Science in Education and Certificate of Advanced Studies in Educational Administration. Carol and her husband Ed have four children and three grandbabies. Contact Carol: cleclair@alphagraphics.com

Edward LeClair - Owner

Ed has owned the AlphaGraphics of Cary with his wife Carol since early 2008. Prior to purchasing the business he worked for 25 years for Curtis Screw Company in Western New York; culminating as Vice President of Operations. Curtis is a 100+ year old multi plant operation that produced machined parts for the domestic and international automotive industry. Over the years he held positions of increasing responsibility in Operations, Sales, Engineering, and Quality. Prior to his time at Curtis he served in the US Army for five years finishing as a Captain in artillery. Several years were spent as a battery commander of a basic training unit. Ed is a Summa Cum Laude graduate with a BS in Industrial Technology from Buffalo State College.

Each position has required attention to detail during the management of projects with short timeframes. At AlphaGraphics that is a daily requirement. Since his arrival there has been a continued effort to upgrade equipment to serve existing customers with the best available machines and to develop relationships with new customers whose needs surpass what basic equipment will deliver. For example, the primary printing press is a seven color Indigo; best in class in digital presses and the recent purchase of an HP Scitex FB500, flat bed press. Ed lives with his wife in Apex, NC. They have four adult children.     Contact Ed: eleclair@alphagraphics.com

Ed and Carol are very proud of their team.  We have a combination of talented, hard working people that get you what you need, when you need it, and the way you want it!
