About Us

Pella Engraving & Sign Company started as an engraving shop for a local newspaper, The Pella Chronicle. In 1934, we became an independent company—a trusted provider of premium letterpress printing dies and other prepress services for not only the Chronicle, but news agencies across Iowa.

As the engraving industry grew and evolved, so did PEC. We are still engraving high-quality magnesium dies and printing plates, but our product lineup has expanded to include everything from plaques and awards to nameplates, serial and ID tags, vinyl decals, vehicle wraps, indoor and outdoor signage, and more.

We also continue to build our technical and mechanical capabilities. PEC carefully chooses our equipment to leverage the latest industry technology, which ensures our customers get better products and allows us to meet higher volume demands.


Some of the processes Pella Engraving & Sign Company specializes in are:

There’s one thing that hasn’t changed since 1934: our commitment to maintaining exceptional customer service, professional excellence, exacting standards, and quick turnaround times. We make it right is not just a slogan—it is a core value we work to uphold every day.
