FAQ’s   arrow

What can you do for me?

As a full service graphics company, we can do anything you can imagine.  We specialize in printed decals, cut vinyl graphics, flat signage, banners, and much more.  Our experienced Design, Production, and Installation teams will take all the guesswork out of the equation.

What are cut vinyl decals?

Cut vinyl decals (or just cut vinyl) are graphics that are “Computer Cut” out of a solid color.  These colors can be layered on top of each other to achieve a unique look.  Depending on what material you choose, they can last up to 10 years.  We laminate transfer paper over the top to help keep individual components in the right spot during installation.

What are printed graphics?

Printed graphics are exactly that; graphics that have been printed instead of cut from solid colors.  These types of graphics use a four color print process on a wide-format inkjet printer, so virtually millions of colors can be reproduced.  These can be “Computer Cut” just like the cut vinyl for individual decals, or can be as wide as 54″ for vehicle wrap panels.

I have to use a specific color.  Can you match Pantone colors?

Since we use a four color printing process, we can achieve the closest colors we can to what you need.  Keep in mind that we cannot directly reproduce exact Pantone colors, only a close representation.

How long do printed graphics last?

Printed graphics vary greatly in longevity.  If a UV protection laminate is not installed, graphics will only last a maximum of 1.5 years due to ink fading.  If a UV laminate is installed, a medium term material will last from 4-6 years, where a premium material can last from 7-10+ years.  We would never compromise quality to gain repeat business.  That’s just not us.

Can I get custom graphics done?

Of course!  This is what we specialize in.  With our creativity and design concept know-how, we can get you exactly what you need to help you stand out.

 How much do your products cost?

Since all of the products and services we provide are all based on each individual project, we cannot give an exact number without first quoting the project.  Feel free to give us a call or send us an email to get you started.  All estimates are free of charge.

What’s your turnaround time?

Considering that our products are made to order, turnaround time can greatly vary.  On most projects, a lead time of 3-6 business days can be expected – more time may be needed for larger projects.  We will do whatever it takes to accommodate same-day or next-day projects.

Where are you located?

We are located inside the MD Products and Solutions building at 2421 15th St SW, Mason City,IA.

Do you do business outside of Mason City?

You bet we do.  The surrounding areas of Clear Lake, Charles City, Forest City, Garner, Manly, Northwood, Osage and everywhere else in between.  If you’re outside of that area, don’t sweat it.  Give us a call and we’ll get you set up.

What payments do you accept?

We accept cash, checks, Visa, and MasterCard.

What file formats do you accept?

Vector: The preferred file format is a vector-based Adobe Illustrator (.ai) file.  To keep formats exactly alike, all strokes and text must be converted to outlines.  We also accept PDF and EPS vector file formats.

Bitmap: For bitmap artwork, we accept TIFF, JPG (JPEG), and PSD files in the CMYK color space.  Depending on the project, the pixel density needs to be at least 150 ppi (300 ppi for graphics less than 7″x7″, or with text smaller than 20 pt).
