COLOR PRINTING IN SAN FRANCISCO

Create custom color printing projects with AlphaGraphics in San Francisco, using state-of-the-art printing equipment.

Whether you want to print brochures, flyers, posters, banners, business cards, or more, our knowledgeable staff is equipped with the tools it takes to produce exactly the look you need.

COLOR PRINTING METHODS

No matter what you want to print, we have the printing method that will produce the perfect color for your project.

We use digital printing to produce color prints quickly and to provide more accuracy for certain types of projects. With offset printing, inks are pressed onto the paper, which creates a very precise color, important for logos, letterhead, envelopes, and business cards. Large format printing equipment uses inkjet technology to produce a vibrant color.

OFFSET VS. DIGITAL PRINTING

OFFSET PRINTING is the great for large quantities and those in need of specialized color, paper and sizing options. Need metallic gold for a special piece, 4-color process, Brand-specific Pantone color matching, unique finishing or super-heavy stock? Off-set is the way to go.

 

DIGITAL PRINTING service is ideal for lower quantity projects, and documents or collateral that benefit from being customized often or see frequent changes in content. Order amounts under 2,000 copies, when you need a quick turnaround, and don’t need special/specific ink colors are great for Digital. If you’re not sure what your project is best suited for, let us help! While we’re at it, we can advise you on design, sizing and paper options, and a full range of finishing and binding services. We can help you design the perfect solution for your special or unique projects.

PRINTING IN THE OFFICE VS PROFESSIONAL PRINTING

Sometimes clients tell us that they are going to save money by printing their project on the office printer/copier. As professional printers, we know that unless the project is small and simple, printing in the office rarely saves time or money. In fact, when you look at the true cost of printing “in-house”, you’ll find that it can cost you a lot more than you bargained for.

 

Some factors to consider are: the high cost of ink for smaller printers, labor costs of staff pulled from their daily projects, repair costs when the printer breaks down after over-use, fatal jams that halt or delay the project, time spent collated and organizing the print outs, and lost business or diminished reputation due to unprofessional document presentation.

 

Nothing makes us sadder than seeing 5 or 6 people, including highly paid executives, making a last minute scramble to organize, collated and staple piles of print-outs an hour before an important presentation. If they added up the salaries of those involved (by the hour) and the cost of ink, the cost will generally be higher than having it professionally printed. Not only that, professional printing yields more polished results, produces fewer errors, allows for more choices in production and finishing, and allows your staff to focus on other critical, job specific tasks.

PRINTING AND DESIGN

Along with eye-catching color, we offer several other printing and design options to create the finished product you envision.

Consider the following:

  • Professional binding, including collating, folding, saddle stitching, three-hole drilling, coil comb or wire-o binding, and inserting
  • Custom covers, laminating, and packing or shrink wrap
  • Single or double sided printing in all standard sizes and paper stocks
  • Paper sizes ranging from 8.5" x 11" to 5' x 30’
