An Idaho Falls company has been named as one of the top 10 best small commercial printing companies to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic by an industry magazine.
AlphaGraphics in Idaho Falls ranked eighth in the 2021 Printing News Magazine for small commercial companies to recover from the pandemic. The edition was published June 14.
“The pandemic created challenges for all of us, but also created opportunities. Our whole team worked hard to find ways around every setback and innovate new and better solutions for our business customers that were facing their own struggles. We owe this recognition to our community that continues to choose our services,” said Lynn Nelson, owner of AlphaGraphics Idaho Falls, in a news release.
The ranking was determined by how small commercial print businesses coped during the pandemic and what measures were taken to bounce back to normalcy, according to the release. The company attributes its success to its vast offerings of services, including graphic design, digital and traditional marketing services, sign and banner printing, vehicle wraps and more.
Nelson runs and operates eight other AlphaGraphics locations, including one in Rexburg. The Idaho Falls location opened in 2007 and is one of 260 AlphaGraphics stores worldwide.
