Its name sometimes appears printed as Presswell Records Mfg. Co. on test pressings or abbreviated on the labels of vinyl releases as PR, (PR), or -PR either as a floating code or as a suffix appended to the label matrix numbers (chiefly on Atlantic Recording Corporation-related releases).

Likewise, on PolyGram-manufactured and other PolyGram-related vinyl releases, it can often be identified the by pressing plant code identification number 18 printed on the labels.

It is known to have made metal parts for Research Craft and Monarch Record Mfg. Co.
