Why PEI?

Seven Reasons to Trust Your Project to PEI

PEI has been manufacturing museum-quality collectibles and keepsakes domestically for over 40 years and boasts one of the most state-of-the-art "green" facilities in the world.  All of our products are manufactured in the USA, which accelerates leadtimes and promotes American jobs. 
 
We stand behind our products and our services, but you don’t just have to take our word for it:  our plating and finishing standards meet or exceed the standards of the U.S. Department of Commerce, national and international jeweler associations, and the Better Business Bureau.  Customer testimonials also illustrate how small programs starting with as few as 250 pieces have now grown into 10,000 piece annual programs. 
 
We are easy to get to know and we believe you will like our:
 
1) Distinguished Custom Designs
Our product design team has over 100 years of combined experience in creating keepsakes, commemorative  and decorative products. They will take your ideas and translate them into an elegant, beautiful piece that meets your budget.
 
2) Fast Service
PEI’s metal etching process uses special phototools, made in-house, so your initial design and minor design changes can be made quickly.  No expensive set-up or hard tooling is required.  You also get fast service because you work directly with our designers using simple tools like .jpeg, .tiff, .PDFs and Adobe Illustrator files.  Finally, our large inventory of in-house metals and finishing options, such as silk-screening,  dramatically reduce your leadtime.
 
3) Consistency
The quality of your keepsake will be the same from the 1st piece to the 100,000th piece and everything in between, since phototools don’t “wear” like other kinds of tools or forms.  This also means that you can build a collection or annual program in confidence. (Yes, as you get started, don't be surprised if late arrivals want to acquire previous years' keepsakes to create a cherished collection!).
 
4) Customer Satisfaction
PEI has a long history of customer satisfaction. Our plating and finishing standards meet or exceed the standards of the U.S. Department of Commerce, national and international jeweler associations, and the Better Business Bureau.  We can also show you customer testimonials to the fact that small programs starting with as few as 250 pieces have now grown into 10,000 piece annual programs (visit the “Organizations Served” tab on this web site.)
 
5) Cost-Effective Fulfillment
Regardless of whether or not PEI does your fulfillment on your behalf or you use your own fulfillment house, most orders are inexpensive to ship because etched ornaments, bookmarks, jewelry cuffs, etc. are generally lightweight yet durable.  Indeed, we specialize in light weight, low cost products to help boost response rates and increase the average dollar donated in direct mail.  Be sure to visit our direct mail section to get started!
 
6) Novel Ideas versus Stock Solutions
We love a challenge!  Let us help you express your ideas in a way that fits your budget and your schedule. 
 
However, we also know that sometimes you need something right away for a big event or anniversary, so we have a limited number of stock solutions when there just isn't enough time to create a truly unique item.   Consider a multicolor, balloon page marker;  a patriotic USA flag in the shape of the country as a special bookmark; or an elegant gold-plated cuff or napkin ring holder as three fail-safe solutions with immediate delivery.
 
7) Sharing our Experience and Talent
We’ve done many different types of programs and promotions through the years, and we’re willing to share our experience with you to make your program successful.
