Artistry has been family owned and operated since 1955. Operating on the outskirts of Chicago we have endeavored to preserve the age-old tradition of copper and steel plate engraving and die stamping on a variety of stationary, invitations, promotional items and more.
Being a small operation enables us to take great pride in what we create, with keen attention to maintaining a careful, clean and organized work environment to ensure no speck of dirt, grime or any other foreign object interferes with the product's beauty. Every job, big or small, is hand-checked and any damaged sheets are removed and recycled. This guarantees the client will be given only the best print work we are capable of producing.

The Engraving process will allow you to achieve reproduction of the smallest lettering and finest type, and use of metallic inks will add a touch of elegance to your design. If you choose to include a large solid design area, we will either need to apply a screen of use another process, such as Foil Stamping or Offset Printing, because Engraving inks have a tendency to “puddle / model” in the large solid areas.
The image area being Engraved is also a consideration. The largest image area that can be Engraved in one press pass is 5” x 9”. Larger areas can be engraved but require multiple press runs to be achieved. Multiple colors may be specified in the design. Large sheet sizes can be engraved but placement of image area is limited.
If you find yourself questioning wether or not your design can be Engraved and Die Stamped please do not hesitate to contact our Engraving department here at Artistry!
