AlphaGraphics named one of the largest printing operations by Printing Impressions

Global leader in print and marketing solutions ranks 22 on top 350 list of printers in America, Canada

DENVER – Feb. 9, 2021 – AlphaGraphics, a leading franchisor of printing and marketing solutions, has been recognized as one of the largest printing companies in the U.S. and Canada after being named to the Printing Impressions 350. The franchisor moved up one spot from last year, ranking 22nd on the list.

“Making this list by Printing Impressions showcases how well our center owners and leadership teamwork together,” said Bill McPherson, vice president of franchise development at AlphaGraphics. “Last year was difficult due to the pandemic, but we took the necessary measures to ensure that we remained relevant in an environment that was in turmoil.”  

The Printing Impressions 350 ranking is based on annual sales with many companies self-reporting their numbers. The publication focuses on printing industry trends, with much of this year’s content geared to the unsettled environment caused by COVID-19.

“The pandemic has caused many owners in the industry to rethink the way they do business and the products they provide,” said McPherson. “Many of our centers had to pivot away from the traditional services they provided in order to focus on new revenue streams.

“That’s why we feel that making this list this year means more than in previous years. It shows that as a brand, we made the necessary adjustments to allow our franchisees to continue thriving in a tough environment.”

Many AlphaGraphics locations were able to shift toward different avenues to help keep revenue elevated. Yard signs pertaining to graduations and birthdays became popular. Some businesses also used AlphaGraphics to print “now open” signs to announce their re-opening after quarantines ended.
