Universal Engraving, Inc.
Infinity Foils, Incorporated
UEI® Falcontec® Ltd.
UEI Systems was created by the UEI® Group to help grow the worldwide hot stamping and embossing industry by providing engraving supplies that are readily available, reliable and consistent.
Our story is one of family tradition, vision, integrity and dedication to excellence.
In 1965, Mr. Glenn E. Hutchison moved from Dallas, Texas USA to Kansas City, Kansas USA to work as a sales representative in the hot stamping foil industry. Six years later, he was given the opportunity to purchase a foil manufacturing plant. Mr. Hutchison and his partner at the time, formed Universal Lustre Leaf, which manufactured and sold hot stamping foil for nearly ten years.
Universal Lustre Leaf added an engraving division in 1976, which was later known as Universal Engraving. Then in 1982, Universal Lustre Leaf was split into two companies: Universal Stamping and Embossing Foils, Inc. (USE Foils) and Universal Engraving, Inc. Mr. Hutchison’s children went on to manage and perpetuate a highly successful company with USE FOILS, while Mr. Hutchison and his team of experts further developed Universal Engraving, Inc. into the world’s largest engraving company. UEI later added another engraving facility to its holdings: UEI® Falcontec, located in the United Kingdom.
To further exemplify a dedicated commitment to the foil stamping and embossing industry, Universal Engraving developed a new corporate identifier—the UEI Group—to affiliate all member UEI companies worldwide. With the UEI Group we can offer the markets we serve a total solution for foil stamping and embossing quality, knowledge, technical support and product innovation.
Universal Engraving has grown in capacity, capabilities and now employs hundreds of associates. Our main production facility is located in Overland Park, Kansas, USA. Universal Engraving is proud to boast that we are the only engraving company to employ a dedicated Research and Development Team.
Together, the Universal Engraving associates have clearly demonstrated that hard work, commitment and a passionate belief in your product can formulate the foundation of success.
