The STATE Graphics Mission

The History of a Family in Printing

Robert “Bob” Schroeder established State Graphics in 2012 in Wheeling, IL. But the origin of his story traces back decades earlier, with roots in The Great Depression. Robert’s father William and his grandfather Marshall were instrumental in initiating Bob’s love of printing. Marshall Schroeder began his career in the 1930s, documenting a tumultuous era in history at the Waukegan News-Sun. William Schroeder got his start writing, designing, and producing a comic strip for his school newspaper — at the tender young age of 10.
As he developed his own career, Bob discovered both an affinity and a talent for the family tradition of putting ink to paper, and after outgrowing a printing franchise purchased in 2007, his path led him to open the present-day venture known as State Graphics — encompassing multiple locations and dozens of traditional and digital machines.

Green Initiatives

At State Graphics we pride ourselves on maintaining our Earth’s natural resources. We use low-VOC products and recycle all our paper and aluminum plates — doing our part to leave a clean planet for future generations.

All of our paper is at least 30% post-consumer waste. This ensures a sustainable future for the paper industry.


Working with State Graphics on this project has been one of the easiest experiences I have had in my career. I anticipate this will be the start of a great partnership moving forward. Particularly, you have been extremely accommodating and creative with us and we really appreciate it.

How well will my job match what I see on my monitor?

Most people are surprised at how well their job matches what they see. But because of wide differences in monitor calibration and the different technologies used, some printed colors may not exactly match the colors on your specific monitor. 

What is the difference between the RGB and CMYK color space, and why does it matter?

RGB refers to the primary colors of light, Red, Green and Blue, that are used in monitors, television screens, digital cameras and scanners. CMYK refers to the primary colors of pigment: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black. These are the inks used on the press in “4-color process printing”, commonly referred to as “full color printing”.

The combination of RGB light creates white, while the combination of CMYK inks creates black. Therefore, it is physically impossible for the printing press to exactly reproduce colors as we see them on our monitors.

Is there an extra charge for bleeds?

No. Unlike many other companies, all our prices include full bleeds free of charge.

What is State Graphics policy on privacy and security?

No information we collect for order processing or from inquiries is shared with any other company or website. Your information is only used to contact you when necessary. Credit Card information is only used to bill you for products and services ordered.
