The What

Pins have been around for thousands of years, but it wasn’t until around the 13th century that they were developed into the decorative accessories we recognize today. Modern lapel pins vary in size, ranging from ½ inch- to 1 ½ inch and can come in any shape imaginable. In addition, manufacturing advances have made it easier than ever to transfer digital designs to a pin’s surface so that you can bring any idea to life! Designs include a variety of finishes and colors (hard/soft enamel, printed, epoxy, classic), several metallic finishes (gold, brass, copper, silver, black), and are created with customizable accessories like lights, sliders, spinners, gemstones, bobblers, and danglers. There are so many options, you can collect them all!

The Where

Though the name’ lapel pin’ may be deceiving, these custom accessories can be worn anywhere, from backpacks, jackets, and vests, to scarves, ties, beanies, ball caps, hats, belts, collars, pockets, ties, lanyards, and more. Many avid collectors find creative ways to display their scores, from mounting them on pennants and flags to making creative DIY frames or boxes. What’s your favorite way to affix your flair?

The When

In recent centuries, pins evolved from pieces of jewelry for commemorating passed family members, military or political affiliations, and as souvenirs of travel to personal expressions of your passions, interests, and even sense of humor. Lapels were first found in fashion in the late 1800s when “buttonholes” were installed for affixing flowers for formal occasions. Though the “rules” regarding when to wear pins are much laxer these days, it’s still a good idea to dress for the room; perhaps your light-up spinner isn’t the best option for a board room meeting? Wondering when you might create your own custom lapel pins to give to family, friends, or clients? That time is NOW!

The Why

Lapel pins are a great way to express yourself and your interests, commemorate an amazing occasion, or celebrate gratitude and appreciation of a particular commitment or successful endeavor, but their value doesn’t end there. Creating your own line of custom lapel pins is a fantastic way to boost your business, build brand recognition, and honor the customers and clients that have supported your organization along the way. Every life event, commercial enterprise, and creative expression can benefit from a special, commemorative piece of art to share and memorialize for years to come.
