It seems like yesterday . . .
GraphicWorks is a woman owned, small business started in 1994 by Bonnie Moore. Originally located in downtown Anchorage, they operated with one 36" electrostatic plotter and one 54" laminator. Their main focus at that time was the printing and fabrication of interpretive/wayside exhibits. The Chugach National Forest Service was their first client and the exterior interpretive signage along Moose Run (on the way to Portage Glacier) was their first job.
In 1997, GraphicWorks became Alaska's first and only Certified 3M Installer. GraphicWorks expanded the range of products and services offered, including vehicle and fleet graphics. Now gone where the days when local companies sent their vehicle fleets out of state to have these warranted vinyl decals printed and applied. The company soon moved its shop to a larger space with a garage to accommodate the new business. Since then GraphicWorks has provided vehicle graphics for many of well-known companies, including ACS, GCI, BP, TelAlaska, Matanuska Maid, Scan Home Furniture, Coca-Cola, Pepsi and SoBe, to name a few.
As business continued to grow, so also did the need for more space. In 2004, GraphicWorks relocated to the old Professional ColorGraphics building on the corner of C Street and Potter. With double the space, the GraphicWorks crew was well equipped to tackle their next major project: Graphics for the new wing of Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.
Today they operate three 54" printers, two laminators, a vinyl cutter and two high-end scanners.
