Whitney C. Third Plateau Social Impact Strategies
We originally called AlphaGraphics for a last minute event held at our offices. We needed one of those classic giant checks. I was able to send the designs over to Bill and he was able to get it printed and mounted for us in the same day and since your offices are so close I was able to run over and pick it up and take it back just in time for the event.
Kelly B. Niantic Inc
This was a rush order and AlphaGraphics delivered!

Bill Crawford is your "super star" customer service and he's always willing and able to go the extra mile to get the job done. Quality of printing is excellent
Karen K. FRED T. KOREMATSU INSTITUTE - CCM
Your poster print prices are perfectly priced. We've done a few poster print projects with you and were satisfied with the level of service and production quality. We had one sticker project executed and it wasn't until after the fact that we were told that we were under billed for the project and we were outrageously out/overpriced for a similar project by a few thousand dollars for a small quantity sticker set.

Joel A. MidAmerican Printing Systems Inc.
Jeff at your SF office was highly responsive, very professional, yet also quite personable in our interactions. Jeff understands the time sensitive pressure demands often active in getting oversized print boards out to clients in litigation projects. Rather than pose limitations and barriers, Jeff made sure we could get from point A to B without headache (or as little as possible). He was also pro-active in making helpful suggestions. Much appreciated.

TYPES OF VINYL BANNERS
13 ounce single-sided vinyl banners, 15 ounce blockout banners, and retractable banners are made of PVC, a vinyl material that is heavy-weight and water-resistant. Mesh banners are made of mesh vinyl fabric, which is comprised of loosely-woven, crisscrossed, vinyl threads that create tiny holes throughout the fabric.
The tiny holes in mesh banners allow air to be blown through them. Since wind can easily pass through mesh banners, due to the holes; that prevents mesh banners from “sailing” and tearing while the wind is blowing. Thus, mesh banners are ideal for outdoor use in windy areas.
A blockout banner has a core that contains a blockout liner. The purpose of the blockout liner is to prevent the front image from showing in the back, and vice versa. Hence, blockout banners are ideal for double-sided banners.
Retractable banners are mainly used in pull-up banner stands. A pull-up banner stand is a device that lays flat on the ground. It’s approximately 40-64 inches wide x 4 inches deep x 4 inches tall. Inside the device is a 36-60 inch wide rolled-up banner that can retract to 3 feet, 5 feet, or 7 feet tall.
The below image contains examples of retractable banners in pull-up banner stands.
THE PRINT PROCESS OF VINYL BANNERS
AlphaGraphics uses ultraviolet (UV) inks to print on vinyl banners. During the printing process, immediately after the inks are applied to the banner; a UV light cures (or dries) the ink, which is then bonded to the fabric. As a result of this bonding, UV inks are abrasion resistant – which means it is highly unlike that the ink will slough or rub off. In addition, UV inks are also water and fade-resistant. Thus, vinyl banners printed with UV inks will not fade from rain/snow/mist and sun exposure.
Since vinyl banners are water and fade-resistant, they are suitable for outdoor use. However, only mesh vinyl banners can stand up to windy conditions without sailing or tearing.
