Art Engraving was founded in 1923 by John Phillips on Court Street in Reading, PA. The company eventually became part of the PlateCrafters Family at its current location at 230 Bethlehem Pike in Colmar, 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 addition to making conventional plates, we now have the capability of going direct to plate with our brand new 4260 ESKO digital plate maker. This enables us to output at 4000 dpi and produce flat top technology plates that are without rival in the industry.


No matter how stringent our customers’ requirements, PlateCrafters' competitive delivery time and pricing enable us to do the job, on time and within budget.
