Company Culture

CL Graphics, Inc. was established with the ideal of becoming a valued print management resource for our clients. On the strength of this commitment, we have continued to grow and evolve.

New people, new equipment, new technology...and yet, everything still comes back to providing consistent service and value to the customer. Even in this age of high-tech wizardry, the perceived value of a new technology is diminished when we realize that something else newer, faster, and less expensive will soon follow. Now more than ever, the real value in a business relationship is still in what value a company provides beyond the actual product.

We hope that some of what is important to us as a company is equally important to you. Our strongest relationships are when there is a match between the customer's expectations and our expertise. To learn more about some of our relationships, we invite you to follow the testimonials link.

Our Vision

Our mission is to become a resource for our clients in preparing and distributing their print and cross-media communication needs; to provide a fairly priced and above average product to our client that also allows for the company to be successful and able to reinvest in its future; to provide a challenging, rewarding environment for our employees.

Guiding Principles

Formed in 1981, CL Graphics, Inc. has grown steadily (even during the challenging economic times) into a full-service marketing resource company located northwest of Chicago, Illinois. We specialize in marketing and direct mail consulting, graphic design, prepress, commercial printing, bindery services, mailing/fulfillment video and social media services.

As a cross media resource, we provide our clients a "one-stop" source for their communication needs. We are able to assist them with the conceptual, planning and creative stages of a project all the way through production and delivery of the finished products to their customers.

Our client base includes associations, nonprofit organizations, publishing companies, governmental bodies, manufacturing and service firms, as well as agencies and print resellers.

In addition to producing many of the standard office products such as letterheads, envelopes and business cards, CL Graphics, Inc. also works with clients to prepare marketing and sales related collateral pieces, including: corporate brochures, sell sheets, price lists, direct mail advertising, video and social media.

Recognition for our collaborative efforts has come to both CL Graphics, Inc. and our clients in the form of numerous awards, including gold and silver awards from The Gallery of Superb Printing, The Calendar Marketing Association, PrintImage International, NAPL, and The Printing Industry of America.
