For 72 years, Penn Emblem has provided customers with high quality, cutting-edge products. Unlike many other companies, however, Penn Emblem has proudly served those customers through the common thread of family for three generations. In 1947, company founder, Frank Blumenthal, began embroidering emblems out of his garage in Philadelphia, beginning with cotton, oval name tags and American flags for gas station uniforms. In the 1960’s, he brought the first heat sealable emblems to the industry, completely revolutionizing the rental uniform business.
In 1970, Frank’s oldest son, Robert, took the reins, adding new technologies such as screen-printing, to the embellishment industry. For years, Penn Emblem Company cultivated new business through innovative systems and designs, continuously remaining the market leader and industry trendsetter.
In 2010, Frank’s granddaughter, Randi Blumenthal-Joseph, became the third generation of leadership to continue the legacy of quality and innovation, while also shifting the company to become certified as a Woman’s Business Enterprise, to better support clients focused on supply chain diversity, and to proudly represent female leadership. Penn Emblem continues to serve customers worldwide with an ever-growing array of image and identification solutions today under Randi’s leadership and through the fibers of Penn Emblem’s rich history.
Many companies can deliver quality products, but only Penn Emblem Company threads generational pride and heart throughout everything we create, to produce the best representation of your event, company, brand, sport and more. For all types of emblematic identification, Penn Emblem will proudly make the process seamless, from our stitches to yours.
