Wood-mounted magnesium die

Wood-mounted magnesium die

Our magnesium letterpress printing dies have truly stood the test of time. For years, Pella Engraving’s customers have used our dies on well-known letterpress printing presses—Heidelburg, Kluge, Chandler & Price, Vandercook, and many more. Our dies are now more relevant than ever as these printing presses make a comeback in the custom wedding invitation and card printing industry.

Letterpress printing dies can be ordered unmounted or wood mounted (type high .918″). The unmounted dies are available in three thicknesses (.064”, .153”, or .250”). These dies are generally used in a letterpress printing application of small to medium runs. Letterpress dies are a great alternative to photopolymer or flexography plates (otherwise known as flexo).

A quality product and excellent customer service are our priorities—we also offer same-day turnaround when artwork is emailed by 9:00 a.m. Central Time.

Maximum size for unmounted dies is 29” x 39”. All dies can be ordered unmounted or wood-mounted on plywood or cherry.
