Experience Makes The Difference

At Colographic we put respect and kindness towards our employees first. That applies to our clients as well. A strong work ethic, family environment, passionate customer service and quality products were the foundation of Colographic’s founding in 1979. That foundation is the secret to our longevity.

Colographic built its reputation for fleet graphics & signage largely on referrals. That building process continues today, supported by consultative selling where we strive to match with customers based on their wants and needs instead of hitting them over the head with a laundry list of features.

We begin with the end goal in mind, coupled with common sense. As our CEO Jimmy Burds puts it, “When putting graphics on a vehicle, downtime and scheduling are paramount concerns. If you’ve just bought a new vehicle that needs branding, it’s logical that you want to get it into service ASAP. So, look at the profit generated by that vehicle daily. Let’s say it’s a couple of hundred bucks. Do you want to take it out of service for several days versus one or two to save $50 on the graphics? And what’s the cost of a shoddy job that requires a redo?”

Our small family business started in Jim Burds’ garage in 1979. Shortly thereafter, we incorporated and moved into a two-bay shop in Commerce City. Today, we occupy a 12,600 square foot building on three-plus acres. This modern facility is designed for maximum efficiency, allowing us to produce and install high-quality graphics and signage rapidly and reliably.

What Our Way of Doing Business Means to Stakeholders

Some companies take orders. We take charge. Simply put, we don’t leave excellence to chance. Everything we do, everybody we interact with, every situation that arises are opportunities to shine. For example, we put a spotlight on our customers’ dreams to help make magic happen, versus just taking and half-heartedly fulfilling an order as is the case so often in today’s corporate environment.

We’re also detail-driven and personalization-proud. For example, if a customer has a question about a vehicle for graphics configuration, we can do a VIN number search to get specs on that particular vehicle, not just a general make and model determination. Every customer has unique needs that deserve individualized attention under any circumstances.

Here’s What They Have Had To Say

We started working with Colographic two years ago. They have exceeded my expectations in customer service, product and execution. They now ship decals nationwide to every distributor. Three years ago, I took over vehicle graphics for our nationwide fleet. It was a pretty big project requiring consistent artwork to be installed elsewhere. There were four different designs and 14 formats for each. We wanted a vendor to be the middleman between our needs and the distribution end, providing printing, shipping, and working directly with the fulfillment team and distributors…a lot of management work. Of the 7-8 vendors who pitched, Colographic came through with flying colors. Their execution, quality, pricing and manpower gave us confidence. We never looked back. They do a great job.

Colographic has performed all manner of lettering for us  (Offen Petroleum, LLC): custom signs, wall graphics, trailer wraps, vehicle graphics and lettering.  They never fail to satisfy our needs.  Some of our equipment is subject to harsh use and extreme weather conditions, sometimes we have had material fail and signs begin to peel.  Colographic always stands behind what they do and they have not failed to correct a problem or make a situation right.  It does not matter if we are shipping complete trailer wraps across the country, door signs to a neighboring state, or parking lot signs here in town.  Colographic gets the job done.  I’ve been with Offen Petroleum for over 10 years, we’ve tried another graphic company once….we’re back with Colographic!

General Air has had a longstanding relationship with Colographic. We are very happy with the work that they do for us. The installations look great and are durable. When I first started working with Colographic, our sales rep met with me to ensure our brand guidelines were followed and that we had a color match for our vinyl. I appreciate their responsiveness, it is very easy to do business with the team at Colographic.
