AlphaGraphics La Grange-Oak Brook Celebrates 27 Years of Success!

Word on the street is that AlphaGraphics La Grange- Oak Brook is celebrating 27 years in the print, signage, design & marketing business!  As a family owned business we are so proud to bring our expertise to the community and provide the services we do. As a two generation family business, we know a thing or two in keeping our customers business thriving, especially during the difficult year in 2020.

Let’s take a walk down memory lane and see how far AlphaGraphics has come in 27 years.

We opened our doors on March 1, 1994 in the Village Market center in LaGrange Park, Illinois. Al and Janet Schnell and their oldest son Michael greeted customers that needed basic color and black/white COPIES on the self service copier! We also provided design services too. We had 3 other employees at the time. Back in 1994, the slogan was “Printshops of the Future”. Only if we knew how this company would grow into the future and evolve with the ever changing economy.

Through out the years of many digital and offset press printing we started adding new services like mailing, signage and product fulfillment. Along with adding a few more family members to the team, Dave and his wife Jen Schnell joined the team to help fill those new services and generate new sales opportunities to grow our business. We were thriving!

In 2016 we decided that the current space we were in was starting to bust at the seams and we needed a space to grow with our changing business. So we packed up and moved to much larger space down the street in La Grange in 2016. We took over a old space and did a complete make over to fit our needs. During that time, we added another member of the family, Karen, who now is apart of the sales team.

Of course we have all had some set backs in 2020, but we where here for the community and the businesses. Our customers turned to us in a time of need and we did what we do best for them, GET NOTICED, GET BUSINESS.




We are very excited to celebrate this anniversary month. It’s something to be said to still be around servicing the local area in print, signage, design, marketing for 27 years. The Schnell family sees no end in sight and will continue making this family owned business a blooming success for many years to come. We like to thank our customers for their loyalty and support over the last 27 years and seeing us as their “local printer” in the community!
