Our History

Pantograms' Manufacturing Company Inc. celebrates nearly 45 years of service to our many valued customers in the embroidery industry. Since our inception in 1967, we have played a key role in the transition from our patented pantograph/monogrammer that has produced hundreds of thousands of embroidered name tapes for the U.S. Armed Forces to the high technology computer-operated systems of today. The pantograph "Pantograms" monogramming machine made history when it made the only authorized name tags for military uniforms during the Vietnam conflict.

The original Pantograms machine is now obsolete. Since 1987, Pantograms became one of the first U.S. distributors for TOYOTA brand embroidery machines. We have grown to become the largest distributor of TOYOTA embroidery machines in the world! This fine product is backed by Pantograms exclusive 5-year available warranty, unmatched by any other machine in the industry. Our very experienced support team boasts more certified TOYOTA technicians than anywhere on the globe, including Japan.

We market a turnkey package of software, support, training, the TOYOTA machine, along with the accessories and supplies needed to operate a business. Our specialty is making new embroiderers successful with our products. In 1995, our own team of programmers at our Tampa, Florida, headquarters developed Pantograms' world class Designer Series software. Incredibly powerful, yet it remains one of the easiest to use software packages available. In 2006, as part of our commitment to respond to an ever-changing industry, we launch our latest release, Forté Embroidery Suite.
