AmeriGrafix has been providing its customers locally, nationally and globally with products that help them showcase their business.

Company representatives had the opportunity to talk with members of the Waxahachie Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday at the chamber’s Lunch and Learn about AmeriGrafix’s growth.

AmeriGrafix has been producing applied graphics since 1988 for its parent company, Americase, who is a manufacturer of commercial duty carrying cases. In 1995, AmeriGrafix began supplying the public with its quality printing products.

“We are truly a one-stop shop for all your needs for advertising. From the inception of Americase and AmeriGrafix we are very community based. We love our chamber of commerce and we love our community. That is why we started AmeriGrafix to give back to this community,” said Chris Egloff, AmeriGrafix Director of Sales. “We have found our niche in the last five to 10 years doing pretty complicated longterm projects. One of them is the Singleton Scholarship wall at the Waxahachie High School Fine Arts Building. We were a big contributor on that project and we are pretty proud of it.”

Some of the services that are offered by AmeriGrafix are large format printing for banners, applied graphics, wall graphics, stickers, posters and signage. This process is also used to make vehicle wraps. Others services include the creation of plaques, awards, signs, banners and custom engraving and embroidery.

“Since the beginning of AmeriGrafix, we have actually grown a little bit every year since its inception. That is something we are proud of. Our success has allowed us in the last three years to invest almost $100,000 in not only renovations of our facility but also state-of-the-art equipment that has allowed us to diversify ourselves and do other capabilities,” Egloff said. “We have just purchased a new Rolland large format printer that has allowed us to get started into vehicle wraps. We print our graphics in house and do our graphics in house. We are willing to do that for any of you who want to turn your Volkswagen into a rolling billboard.”

Many of the real estate signs and political signs that are throughout the city have been produced by AmeriGrafix. AmeriGrafix has also invested in larger and better embroidery machines that allow a quicker turnaround time, better stitch patterns and a higher quality embroidery, Egloff said.

Some of the customers that AmeriGrafix serves include American Airlines, United Airlines, Southwest, Continental and Emirates airlines. Other customers include Halliburton, Baker Hughes, Airbus, Cessna, NASA and Apple Computers. The company has also made products for the International Space Station as well as signs for the U.S. Forest Service.

“There is really no job too small or too big. We have embroidered a single onesie for a baby to uniforms for police and fire departments and large scale, $300,000, contracts. Nothing is too small. Nothing is too large,” Egloff said. “We are able to diversify ourselves from the other person because we have a metal fabrication shop. The awards that you give can look different than something you would buy in a catalog. We can actually change it and make it more specific to the person. We really take pride in doing that.”
