What Printers Do I use?

Arla Graphics, Inc.
Morton grove, Illinois
Excellent 2 color printer, although they do work 4 color, I have only used
them for small run 2 color or less jobs. Quick-ass turnarounds 5 days.
Reasonable prices.

Darwill Press, Hillside, IL
Bit Expensive but impeccable work, more higher run 4 color & InfoPrint
digital jobs. Specialty in laminates, you name it they do it. Polyurethene,
Aqueous, etc.

ACL, American Color Labs, Chicago, off Adams and Canal.
Color Print Facility. Quick, turnaround low qty. They do mousepads,
T-shirts, and huge-ass prints can plot on vinyl, canvas, etc.

Anzo Graphics, Chicago.
Used only for film work, quick turnarounds, clean film.

Those are my printers--

On the printer discussion,
We use Steven James Lamont in Prospect Heights for all our film. They can do
quick, quick turnaround even with 5 color work (process and a spot).

Darwill Press in Hillside is another goodie. They do some sort of digital

I'll tell you one printer to avoid. That is Print Perfect in Batavia. They
do 2 color work. Way too many problems to account for. We still use them for
reasons unknown to me.
