Moore Push Pin CompanyAs soon as he was well established, Edwin Moore began advertising. In 1903, his first national advertisement appeared in "The Ladies' Home Journal" at a cost of $168.00. The company continued to grow, and was incorporated on July 19, 1904, as the Moore Push Pin Company. Over the next few years, Edwin Moore invented and patented many other items, such as picture hangers and map tacks.
From 1912 through 1977, the Moore Push Pin Company was located on Berkeley Street in Germantown. Today, the Moore Push Pin Company occupies a large, well-equipped plant in Wyndmoor, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia. The business is still exclusively devoted to the manufacturing and packaging of "little things."
