Values & History

AlphaGraphics began franchising in 1979 after successfully building the company's operating systems into a successful and profitable business model, becoming the first desktop publishing retailer in 1984. By the late 80s, AlphaGraphics had claimed a foothold in the global marketplace by becoming the first US printing franchise to move into international markets. The company moved its headquarters to Denver, CO in 2018, and today there are over 300 AlphaGraphics locations in operation around the globe.
