Spring is the perfect time of year to gather for picnics and family get-togethers. In fact, we have been working with quite a few customers on designing this year’s family reunion lapel pins. We know that one reason for this is that customized lapel pins make great reunion gifts. Other reasons why they are so popular is their unlimited design potential and how easily they can be made to capture family memories.
A History Teacher with Fetching Features
Though a custom pin is simple to create, there is nothing simple about the lapel pin design shown here. The Washington Family reunion pin not only displays how well different design elements can work together, but also how to graphically display your family history. The custom lapel pin is separated into quadrants, each possessing its own important piece of the family’s historic details.
In the upper left corner, the outline of Africa appears filled with the colors from the African-American flag. The upper right corner lists key family members. The lower right quadrant provides more geographical understanding with a replica of the state of South Carolina while the lower left pays homage to the couple that marks the beginning of the family’s lineage. At the middle of the lapel pin, the words “Generation after Generation” join the four sections, echoing the “Family Unity” it was created to represent. One feature that is not shown here is the unique custom back stamp with the name of the family member who designed the pin, a truly memorable and personal touch.
