Q. I need car decals that won’t fade or crack. Where do I get started?
A. Screen-printing is
The thickness of the ink and its ability
to withstand all types of weather conditions
will give you a longer-lasting decal. Also,
consider using a polyester or vinyl. These
base substrates also last longer under
inclement conditions whereas paper, polypropylene
and other materials will shrink, yellow,
crack and curl over time. As one of the
leading suppliers of decals in the automotive
racing industry, Communication Graphics
will guide you through all of the options
and provide the type of decal you’re
looking for. See Decal
101 for more information.
Q. How much does printing cost?
A. The cost involved in printing promotional materials is based upon size, number of colors, substrate (base material) selection and quantity. Generally, cost savings can be found in running higher quantities. And, the experts at Communication Graphics can help you determine the best size and number of colors to maximize your sheet size to get the most for your money.

Q. How long does it take to complete a print job?
A. Turnaround time is dependent upon the complexity of the print
job and press availability. Once the art proof is approved, your job
is immediately scheduled for the next open press.
Should your needs require an even faster turnaround time, you have
the option to select expedited service
in which Communication Graphics reviews
all jobs for one that may be moved to accommodate
your needs. Call your account executive
or contact us for more information.
Q. Can we send you art in jpeg (.jpg) format?
A. To provide you with the best quality print job,
a high-resolution vector file such as Adobe
Illustrator is required. If your art is
built in Quark or other similar programs,
we can convert your files. See our “Technical
for more information or contact us.
Q. Can you send me a price list?
A. Each print job is unique and price estimates
are given based upon size, number of
colors, quantity and substrate (base material).
Communication Graphics does not limit
you to a particular size or shape decal.
Instead, the company helps you find cost savings by
listening to your needs and making recommendations.
To obtain an estimate for your unique
Q. I do not have the original art for my print job. What can I do?
A. Communication Graphics operates a full-service, in-house design
studio for your convenience. We can create or redraw logos, and even
reproduce your decal art. Design fees are competitive and turn time
is lightning fast.
Q. Will I see a proof before my job is printed?
A.Yes, you will receive a color PDF of your decal, label or sign artwork before printing. If you cannot accept a digital file, you will be faxed a copy of your proof. A color PDF allows you to see color positioning (and is not exact as computer screens only approximate color). You can specify PMS colors, however, and the proof will detail the placement of the colors. Next steps? Sign the proof and fax it back. We will then expedite your job.
Q. How can I obtain credit with your company?
A. Fill out a credit application, available from your account executive
(or from this website) and we will review your file to determine payment
Q. Where are you located?
A. Communication Graphics is located
in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma … a
suburb of Tulsa - centrally located within the continental US. The
company’s central location is an added benefit for customers
who require timely drop-shipments to points across the US.
Q. Do you have standard dies in-house that customers can use?
A.For digital and screen-printed items, a die belongs to the customer who purchases it. This way, the die may be reused and reruled as necessary for that customer. Because the die edge is similar to a razor blade, after so many uses, the die must be reruled or replaced.
For flexo-printed items, the die is a bit different and does not wear down. Therefore, once a flexo die has been purchased, any customer may use it. Your Communication Graphics account executive has a complete listing of the dies and can help you choose the one that fits your need.
Q. Do you make static cling stickers?
A. Yes, we do.
We print on all types of substrates from static and vinyl to polyester, rigid plastics and more! The secret with clear static? Back your decal in white. That will keep your copy and design from being ‘see thru’ like a stained-glass window
Q. What type of equipment do you have?
A. Communication Graphics operates the finest and most advanced
screen, flexo, and digital printing
equipment, as well as in-house prepress
equipment, cutters, serial number applicators, and offset printers
designed to print on the liner (backing) of your decal. The company
also features an in-house design group utilizing the latest in digital
imaging, and a full-service fulfillment branch for warehousing and
