Woman-Owned, SOD Certified, Off33 Contractor, Small Business

As a small business, Latka Communications understands the challenges of communicating in an environment of economic constraint and the opportunities afforded by the explosion in communication technologies. Accordingly, we take pride in providing small businesses and non-profit organizations the same professional level of service and products available to large, commercial clients. As a certified woman-owned small business, Latka Communications is an ideal service provider for organizations seeking minority vendors in support of government or business bids or contracts.

Communication and Technology Resource

Latka Communications’ goal is to help clients understand and respond to the rapidly evolving technologies and media available to them. By passing on our knowledge and expertise, we help our clients manage their own businesses more effectively. To fulfill this responsibility we have put in place the following tools and resources that we shall update frequently. Follow our blog and connect with us on Twitter and Facebook.


Latka Communications owes our success to the vision, drive, and commitment of our parents, Joe and Murielle Banas, who purchased the business in 1979. Joe’s skill in the print shop and Murielle’s vibrant personality on the sales side was the perfect combination to develop a reputation for quality work and top-notch service. Along the way, they expanded our service area, adapted to technologies, and mentored my brother and me to take the business into the world of electronic communications, digital processing, and full-service marketing. We thank them for their patience, foresight, and creativity.
We are privileged to carry on the family legacy.
