When we say every customer matters at AlphaGraphics Tempe, we have the numbers to prove it & more than 1,500 reviews raving about our faster-than-expected turnaround times and consultative customer service.

Located in the hub of ASU on University Drive, we're one of the first AlphaGraphics centers to ever open, so experience isn't just a buzz word. It's the skill and knowledge we've built over decades, project by project. And our familiarity with print shows in your final results.

Businesses and non-profits expect to grow when working with us. That's because for every project, our seasoned staff focuses on your goals and results. We've invested in cutting-edge equipment to put the latest technical advances to work to ensure the product we print or digital marketing strategy we employ will effectively and efficiently achieve them. And we deliver in record time.

We're led by owner and operator Mike Sparaco who began his career at the first AlphaGraphics in Tucson. He's a visionary who's seen and successfully embraced the rapid changes in visual communication. It's this forward-thinking that's allowed us to help our customers adapt and grow in their competitive markets.


"Your success is our only measure of success"

We are driven by our clients’ business results. We measure ourselves based on how we can solve their complex business problems and increase their ROI. That’s why we are proud to share our client’s work with you. We're happy to provide references upon request.

As a leader in the Commercial Printing and Marketing space with multi-national clients, we do not exploit our substantial client list, but they include many of the Fortune 500 and very successful small business owners that have started small with us and are now major corporations. We have grown over the years and so have our clients.

Our specialty is what we call "Extreme" Customer Service, which is a highly personlized interaction with our clients to ensure they are happy with the final project production. Combine that with our unique industry specific solutions for print and multi-channel marketing products that allow our customers to order via special online portals, create variable print documents utilizing a print-on-demand fulfillment structure to save costs and reduce turnaround times.


AlphaGraphics on University is a locally owned and operated buisness. Nestled in the heart of Tempe near Arizona State University (ASU), we have a thriving community of which we're proud to play a part. Commitment to our community is at the core of our business. Combining big hearts and big ideas, we promote and support several nonprofit associations and charities that feed the hungry, educate young people to become future business leaders and preserve our planet. We're always looking for new opportunities and partnerships to give back.

AlphaGraphics Fights Hunger

AlphaGraphics conducts a network-wide annual summer food drive in an effort to help the growing number of hungry people seeking assistance from food pantries across the country. Throughout the months of July and August, AlphaGraphics team members at the worldwide headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah and participating independently owned business centers join up with area companies and customers to collect food for food pantries and charitable organizations in their neighborhoods. Last summer, the food collection topped over 21,000 pounds!

Junior Achievement

Junior Achievement (JA) educates 8 million young people each year, teaching them how to succeed in entrepreneurship, work readiness and financial literacy. JA programming relies on volunteers to convey their real life business acumen with young people. So what better mentor than an AlphaGraphics business center owner! AlphaGraphics owners all across the U.S. are stepping up to the challenge, working with JA to share their professional successes, challenges and know-how with community kids. To learn more, visit
