Concord Engraving was founded in 1933 by Floyd Otto Sr. Four generations later, The Otto Family legacy lives through father and son, Peter and Max Otto.
Initially, Concord Photo Engraving only made engravings. The negatives used to produce the engravings were made by taking actual photographs, no computers. Hence the name, Concord Photo Engraving. As the generations passed, the business evolved into the digital pre-press trade shop it is today, Concord Engraving. The 2nd generation introduced Flexography by molding rubber. The 3rd generation, Peter, introduced photopolymer. The 4th generation, Max, introduced digital photopolymer plate making and letterpress polymer. Today we produce several types of plates and engravings, including flexographic photopolymer & rubber, letterpress polymer, 16g magnesium mounted line cuts, 11pt & 1/4" magnesium hot stamps and embossing dies & counters.
Peter Otto: Owner/ Flexographic Specialist
Peter manages our art department and daily plate production. He trouble shoots and provides customer service, quotes and sometimes a good ole' story!
Max Otto: Owner/ General Manager
Max is our "jack of all trades." He manages front of the house operations, color management and IT. In 2011, Max made the decision to buy a washout unit and began producing dry offset letterpress polymer plates.
Shelley Otto: Vice President of Sales
Shelley is responsible for sales, social media, proofing, road presence and just about anything else you ask her to do. She travels weekly, working with new and existing customers. She is fondly referred to as our Letterpress Queen.
Tina keeps our art department going. Every file that comes into the shop starts and ends with her. She is crucial to our process. Everyday at 12:00 pm, you can hear "last call for letterpress" coming from our art room.
We understand the importance of protecting the environment. Concord Engraving recycles all solvents and chemicals on site and offers water washed photopolymer plates.
