One of our most frequently asked questions concerns the minimum quantities needed to complete a custom lapel pin order.  Although we do not require you to select a certain number, we do recommend that you order at least 100 because that is where the first price discount occurs.

Need Less Than a Hundred?  We Can Help

We can make less than 100 lapel pins for you but the unit price goes up quite a bit.  The reason for this is simple.  Pricing is based on the setup and production costs associated with a 100 quantity order. So, if you only order 20 pins, you still have to pay what it would cost to order a larger amount.  That is why we suggest 100 pins as the minimum to get the manufacturing process started.

The More You Order, The Less You Pay

With our pricing, the more you order, the less the unit price will be.  This gives you an incentive to order enough custom lapel pins to last you awhile.  There are additional discounts when you reach quantities 100, 200, 300, 500, 750, 1,000, 2,000, 3,000, 5,000, and 10,000.

Although we keep your designs on hand for years as a way of making the reordering process fast and efficient, we want you to have an abundance of personalized pins on hand for giveaways, employee recognition events, and promotional purposes.  This will help your business, organization or academic institute thrive in your community.  Maintaining a high level of professionalism is easy when you have custom lapel pins in your possession.

Christmas gives people plenty of reasons to celebrate.  From trimming the tree to gathering with old friends, December is the one time of year where faith and fellowship are at the top of everyone’s list of priorities.

You can prepare for this holiday season by placing your Christmas lapel pin order with Lapel Pins Plus.  We offer quality, customizable items that are perfect for your group or club.  In fact, personalized lapel pins make great gifts to give away at your next party¸ program or event.

Gifts That Encompass the Holiday Spirit

Each person in attendance will be pleased with your thoughtfulness.  In fact, these tokens of appreciation may be the highlight of next year’s Christmas get-together.  Collectors will be drawn to the event because they will have yet another custom lapel pin to obtain.  This can add an element of excitement to your party or event as people proudly display their collections on a jacket, hat or bag.

The Joyful Collectors is one group that we have worked with that loves Christmas lapel pins.  Their collections are rather impressive.  The custom artwork that we created for their lapel pins features three adorable penguins dressed in winter scarves and hanging up stockings by the fireplace.  The club’s name is featured at the bottom of the design as a way of establishing identity.  Members of this Hallmark club proudly wear their Christmas lapel pins as a way of sharing their love for the holidays with others.

Ways We Make Your Pins Extra Special

There are a number of ways we can make your lapel pins extra special.  Here are a few that we suggest:

  • Glitter. Make your Christmas tree and candy cane lapel pins sparkle with different colored glitter.
  • Blinking Lights. Let your snowman’s eyes or Christmas bulbs blink.  Details like these enhance the attractiveness of custom artwork.
  • Custom Sizes and Shapes. Think outside the box and choose the size and shape that complements your lapel pin’s design.  A lapel pin doesn’t have to be small or round to be appealing.

If you have an idea for a Christmas lapel pin that you would like us to create, we would love to hear from you.  All we need is a description of your design idea and a copy of your unique logo or photograph.  Once we have these items, we can get started creating a custom proof for you to look over.

We are often asked the question, “Do you carry stock lapel pins?”  Our response is, “No, we do not.”  The reason for this is that we custom make all of our lapel pins specifically for each one of our customers.  We also make and ship our items fast so that we can meet the delivery dates requested to us by our customers.

Lapel Pins in Every Size, Shape, and Color

Years of service pins, disease awareness pins, and flag pins seem to be the most asked about stock pins.  Our solution to these types of inquiries is that we can have a fully customized version of any of these pins in your hands in about one week.  Why receive a generic pin in five days when you can have a custom pin in seven days?

Custom lapel pins are as unique as the men and women that order them.  That is why it is so beneficial for groups and organizations to allow enough time for us to create their artwork and place the order for their very own lapel pins.  From different shapes to your choice of sizes, we know that details like these add a polished and professional look to the items that you order from us.

Although stock lapel pins are convenient to order, they do not get the same type of response custom lapel pins receive.  Let us add that wow factor to your day.  Visit to find out how.

Custom Lanyards Plus offers variety by selling four different types of custom lanyards to our customers. Imprinted polyester, woven polyester, tube polyester, and imprinted nylon lanyards each have their own distinct look and list of advantages.  In order to make an informed decision concerning the style of lanyards that best fits you or your company’s needs, we want to take a moment to explain each one to you.  Consider this your hassle-free guide to ordering quality, custom lanyards.

Types of Lanyards

Nylon: Our top-of-the-line style of lanyard.  It looks similar to imprinted polyester but has a slight shimmer to it setting it apart in a crowd.  It is very durable and classy.

Imprinted Polyester: Our most popular seller.  Not only is it soft and strong, it also has a great price point.  Imprinted means that your text or logo is screen printed not embroidered into the lanyard.

Woven Polyester: This is the only style we have that the image is not screen printed.  Your logo or text is woven into the lanyard.

Imprinted Tube: This style of lanyard is very similar to a shoelace material.  It is the most economical option that we offer.

Custom lanyards are great items to use in workplace settings, schools and universities as well as at conferences and trade shows.  Finding the perfect style to showcase your business or organization’s name and contact information is easy once you know what each type of lanyard offers.

If you have further questions, refer to our Gallery page at  You can also reach us by emailing or calling 1-800-519-9319.

People love to ski.  They travel to places like Colorado and Vermont to take advantage of the slopes and to stay in some of the best resorts available.  In addition to recharging their batteries, families get to create long lasting memories with one another.  Children grow up remembering their first time on the bunny hill or the sensation of rising high above the ground on a ski lift.  These small details become an important part of their personal history.  In fact, what better way is there to remember an enjoyable ski vacation with your family than to bring home a custom lapel pin as a souvenir highlighting your trip?

A Small but Memorable Souvenir

Available in a variety of sizes, shapes, and styles, this type of souvenir is easy to pack in a suitcase or bag and appeals to people of all ages.  Many local vendors have us put magnets on the back of the lapel pin in place of a post so that it can be proudly displayed on the refrigerator.  These items can be placed in a central location where everyone can see them.  They can also grow in size as families travel from one location to the next collecting magnets.

Some of the most common images that we produce for ski resorts and souvenir shops include snowcapped mountain tops, ski goggles, snow mobiles, and downhill skiers.  Because our items are custom, we can take any image or photograph and include it in the artwork that we create for your order of personalized lapel pins.

This can be very advantageous for you and your business because the design can include information about your ski resort or retail shop.  People will know to come to you for all of their souvenir needs because of the message that they saw on a friend or family member’s lapel pin or magnet.  This is essentially a free way to advertise to your guests.  The souvenirs serve as tiny billboards promoting your products or services.

Presentation Options Add to the Appeal of Custom Ski Lapel Pins

In a retail setting, image is everything.  To appeal to your customers visually, lapel pins should be presented in a positive light.  Attached to a piece of colored card stock or included in a velvet bag or box, these items have higher perceived value and are easier to transport from one location to the next without damaging them.  We offer a number of different options to our customers because we know how important it is to preserve memorabilia.  You can add acrylic boxes to your order easily by contacting us.

We are available to be reached by phone or email.  Call 1-800-252-0904 or drop us a line at  We can take your ski related ideas and turn them into quality lapel pins to sell to tourists that visit your resort or store.

Our customers often come to us to re-order additional quantities of lapel pins.  We make it really simple for them to do this once we have placed their first order.  We keep their design in a digital folder on our server for at least two years.  This makes it easy for our customers to call or email us with a request for additional product.

By telling us their name or the company that they represent, we are able to locate the file from their previous order and email them the digital proof that was used to create their initial order.  Once the proof has been approved, we send it right over to the production department and they begin making the items.  Talk about being simple and hassle-free!

This is one of the many steps that we take to ensure that our customers have the best experience possible. In addition to an easy reordering process, we also offer free shipping on all orders placed in the United States.  That makes us one of the best values in the industry.

Email or call 1-800-252-0904 with your information and request to reorder lapel pins.
