Penn Emblem Company

January 25, 2016

Penn Emblem Company is a global authority on everything image. We know that is a powerful statement but we also know Penn Emblem. Since their beginning in 1947, Penn Emblem has been focused on helping businesses display their brands and values through embroidery. Starting with embroidering patches and emblems on rental uniforms, the company has since expanded into custom design, artwork, heat sealing, ID labeling, and more. With a focus on “Do The Right Thing” and “Do Things Right”, Penn Emblem is a trusted partner with the history and experience businesses need when it comes to building a lasting image customers will remember.

Penn Emblem Company

Although Penn Emblem offers a wide variety of image products and solutions, Australian Uniform Service relies on them for their blank patches that allow us to match the logos we apply to your uniforms to your unique brand and their ColorPrintTM Sublimation for fabric products and other items we carry. We have been working with Penn Emblem for over 40 years; we’re on our second generation! Both our organisations are family-owned and operated! Penn Emblem is a third-generation organisation and Australian Uniform is fourth-generation. We represent their largest Australian service partner; because of the length of our partnership and the quality of their product, we are one of the most competitive vendors of logoed uniforms in Australia.

Founded by Frank Blumenthal in 1947, Penn Emblem started as a embroidering operation in a small garage in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the United States. From those beginnings, Frank’s granddaughter has helped build the organisation into a leader in the identification industry.

Penn Emblem, aside from being a global entity and one of the largest manufacturers of embroidered and printed emblems, also has partners of the same caliber. Polymark is a leading manufacturer of textile transfers and identification labeling products in Europe, and allows Penn Emblem to reach the European market and share resources. The other partner, Emblemtek, a leading emblem manufacturers and distributors of labeling and textile transfer solutions in Canada. Both partners are part of an Alliance with Penn Emblem that allows them to continually evolve their processes, reduce waste, increase efficiency, and cut cost which they pass on to clients and consumers.

Image is everything at Penn Emblem Company. We know every identification product we make must positively reflect your organization. That’s why high quality, innovative decorative solutions have been at the heart of our manufacturing operation for three generations.

Just like we here at Australian Uniform Service focus on innovation and sustainability through technology, Penn Emblem Company has invested a lot of time, money, and effort into optimising the way they do business and provide their product to the world. From their focus on diversity in suppliers and developing long-lasting relationships to their use of technology in flame resistant solutions, thermal barcoding, and mobile applications, Penn Emblem is always redefining and enhancing image through their innovative identification products.
