A Look At One Creator of​ Sports Logos
The members of​ every sports team wear an​ embroidered logo somewhere on their sports gear .​
That embroidered logo is​ a​ symbol of​ pride .​
The makers of​ those logos are equally proud of​ their creations.
Who makes those embroidered logos? Does each city with a​ professional team have its own set of​ embroidery experts? if​ one were to​ look at​ the​ logo for​ the​ Philadelphia Phillies, one would get that impression .​
Their logo contains a​ liberty bell .​
It looks like a​ logo designed by a​ present-day Betsy Ross.
Yet Ross was not the​ last name of​ the​ family that did the​ embroidery for​ that logo .​
That family had a​ different last name .​
Their name was Moritz.
Before the​ depression, the​ Moritz family had a​ business focused on the​ making of​ embroidered lace .​
Then during the​ depression, Carl Moritz, the​ founder of​ the​ company, and​ two of​ his sons changed the​ nature of​ the​ company’s efforts .​
They got the​ employees to​ start doing the​ embroidery for​ the​ emblems put on sports uniforms.
At the​ time of​ its founding, 1885, the​ Moritz’ company was located on Vine Street in​ Philadelphia .​
In 1970 the​ company moved to​ northern Philadelphia .​
In 1986 the​ Moritz’ company moved much further north .​
It moved to​ the​ Pocono Mountains in​ northeastern Pennsylvania.
The Moritz family has been an​ important part of​ the​ embroidery industry for​ five generations .​
Carl Moritz, Jr., the​ grandson of​ the​ company’s founder, took time off during World War II to​ serve in​ the​ Marine Corps .​
After three years of​ service (1943-1946) he got an​ honorable discharge, and​ then he returned to​ Philadelphia to​ help with the​ family business.
His son and​ grandson have also lent their efforts to​ advancement of​ the​ skills required for​ making embroidered logos .​
They have made sure that the​ company has stayed in​ tune with the​ times .​
The youngest Moritz has created a​ new line of​ offerings called QDT Products .​
Those products are computer hardware and​ software for​ use in​ the​ embroidery industry.
By using such QDT Products, embroidered logos can be made much more efficiently .​
Design changes can be readily added to​ the​ available software .​
That makes it​ easier to​ train the​ employees who will make the​ embroidered logos.
With computers as​ part of​ the​ logo-making process, it​ is​ doubtful that sports logos will soon go out of​ style .​
They will probably be an​ important part of​ professional sports for​ quite some time.
