Art Engraving was founded in 1923 by John Phillips on Court Street in Reading, PA. Through more than 90 years of development – from setting type by hand, to paste up and eventually to creating layouts digitally – we have become a full-service graphic art and platemaking company. The standard of skill, craftsmanship and customer service we offer has remained a constant throughout the years.

Years of experience in graphic design and platemaking qualify our staff to produce the highest quality photopolymer plates and films. In 2017, Art Engraving became part of the PlateCrafters family. This added multiple additional capabilities to serve our customers.

Mission Statement

“To honor God and our fellow man through the quality manufacturing of printing plates, enhancing the world we live in via numerous industries; while handling business in such a way that leaves our employees, customers, vendors, and society blessed through our conduct.”
