Introducing PEC installation kits 



When Andrew Lazarchik started Wildcat Championship Belts in 2005, he searched for an engraving company that could custom engrave zinc plates for wrestling, boxing, and other award belts. Pella Engraving was the only manufacturer he found that was able to do exactly what he needed.

“I enjoy working with Pella Engraving because I don’t have to worry about messed up orders,” said Andrew. “I know my plates are going to come back the way I want them. In this day and age, I don’t have time to waste holding hands. They’re good people who do quality work.” Read more about Wildcat Championship Belts here.


“We’ve ordered approximately 4,700 Metalphoto ID tags to be used in a marine environment. The tags are very durable, and their quality has met our every expectation. The thing I like most about working with Pella Engraving is the customer service—they answer all my questions in a timely manner.”


“The 100th anniversary of the Drake Relays was a milestone, and we wanted to honor the Relays history, legacy, and destiny. The idea to honor the Athletes of the Century who competed at the Relays was a big part of our anniversary celebration. “We saw a sample [Pella Engraving] plaque with an artist’s rendering of a picture—it was so much more unique than a photo on a plaque. It sealed the deal. “PEC wanted this project to be as successful as we did. Because of this, we listened to them when they had suggestions. And they always listened to us—no matter how many times we called with changes, we never felt like we were a bother. “The artwork on each plaque is consistent yet representative of each athlete’s individuality. The plaques make the entrance around the stadium light up.”


Sacred Engraving is a family-owned engraving studio based in Tallmadge, Ohio. When Sacred Engraving clients have a need the company cannot meet in house—for plaques with complex artwork and engraved stones, for example—Bill calls Pella Engraving Company. “I met Bruce [Van Wyk, PEC co-owner] at a trade show. I was impressed with the company’s literature and display, and also the textures and surfaces of the products. Since then, I’ve discovered that for artwork, PEC is the only game in town. “Pella Engraving is creative and flexible. They put the needs of my clients first and have a can-do attitude. A police department wanted to mount badges on a display. Pella Engraving devised a way to mount them without any damage to those badges. “For a small college in Florida originally looking for a three-dimensional bas relief, PEC executed the vision of the college with a much more affordable solution: a plaque with such detailed artwork that the three-dimensional aspect was not missed.”
