When it comes to safety, no family can be too prepared.  By taking minor precautions, parents can protect themselves and their children from many sources of danger.  Custom lapel pins reminding others to be aware can be created for National Safe at Home Week which is scheduled to take place August 27th through the 31st of this year.

The annual initiative promotes and emphasizes safety in and around the home to eliminate senseless home-related injuries.  Custom lapel pins can be designed in a way that they remind others to use caution when handling household chemicals, using machinery and equipment, and supervising small children.    A bold message can help save lives by making people more aware of their actions while in their homes and yards.

Your custom pins can highlight a particular area of safety or promote overall safety in general.  Parents attending a community fair can pick up a pin as well as printed materials and apply what they’ve learned at home.  This helps them create a safe environment for themselves, their spouses, and their children.  When a custom lapel pin is involved, it serves as a permanent reminder to cover electrical outlets, cover swimming pools, add child-proof locks to doors, and practice safety drills so children are aware of what to do in the event of an emergency.

Help others protect their families by creating custom lapel pins for National Safe at Home Week.  Visit today to request a no obligation, free price quote and full color digital proof.  Email your inquiry to  You can also reach a representative by phoning 1-800-252-0904 toll-free.  Your satisfaction is of utmost importance to us.  That’s why we go the extra mile to provide you with free artwork and design services as well as free shipping.  We’re our happiest when you’re happy!

July is Family Golf Month.  What activities do you have planned?  What ways will you honor the families that visit your golf course or recreational program this year? Might we suggest custom lapel pins?

Here are a few reasons why custom lapel pins make the best gift item for your special event or month long celebration:

  • Hand out lapel pins to regulars at your golf course.
  • Encourage parents to enroll their children in golf lessons.
  • Celebrate the victories achieved by professional golfers.
  • Honor individual achievements on the golf course.
  • Sell custom lapel pins as a way of raising funds for a local charity.

Your Family Golf Month lapel pins can be soft enamel, cloisonné, offset printed or die struck depending on the artwork you want included on it.  The size and shape of the pins will also be determined once you’ve declared what options you want included in the design.  We will help you decide this once you’ve relayed your custom lapel pin ideas to us.

Here’s why shape and style plays a role in your decision making:

Some pins require more of a surface area because they’re extremely detailed.  Traditional shapes like circles and squares are ideal in this scenario although cutting the design to shape can also be an option if the customer requests it.  Things like glitter and cutouts help accentuate areas of the design and draw attention to the pins.  Antiquing gives the metal a classic look which is often something golf courses want to achieve when handing out custom lapel pins during Family Golf Month.

Order custom lapel pins for the families that visit your golf course.  Visit today to request a no obligation free price quote and full color digital proof.  We work with you to come up with a design that fits your needs and exceeds your expectations.  Email or call 1-800-252-0904 toll-free today.

In a pinch?  Need baseball or softball trading pins fast?   Give us a call!  We can help!  Offset printed pins are an alternative type of trading pin.  We laser print your teams logo onto a metal lapel pin.  After we print your image, we cover it with a clear epoxy coating to protect the image.  This gives it a glossy appearance and also makes the pins last a long time.  Who doesn’t like trading pins that are durable and unique?

Offset trading pins feel similar to traditional die struck trading pins that have an epoxy coating.  They are smooth to the touch and have a glossy look to them.  We are still able to cut-to-shape to give your pin that cool shape that kids love.  Softball trading pins that are done as offset printed often use a yellow ball in place of the white ball that baseball teams use.  This gives them a distinct, memorable look.

There is no need to separate colors on this type of pin because of the printing process.  Once an order is placed, we can have this offset printed baseball trading pin in your hands in about one week.  If you need your pins in a hurry, this is the best option that we offer.  You don’t want your players missing out on the whole pin trading experience this season that’s why we recommend placing your offset printed trading pin order today.

Call us today so that we can get your free digital proof back to you right away.  The number to reach Lapel Pins Plus at is 1-800-252-0904.  As always, it’s toll-free.  You can also email your ideas to  We are here to assist you and make the designing and ordering process as easy as possible.  Before you know it, your offset printed trading pins will be delivered to your doorstep so you can hand them out to all of your players this season.

Branson is an exciting tourist destination located in the state of Missouri.  Similar to Las Vegas, it has a variety of live shows, casinos, and dinner theaters for travelers to enjoy.  The city’s amusement park, Silver Dollar City, sees record numbers of attendance in the summer months because the weather is warm and kids are out of school.  This makes Branson a favorite for families who want to experience the excitement of a big city in a smaller, more tight-knit community.

Custom lapel pins created for Branson businesses are a great source of revenue.  They help promote tourism and encourage visitors to the city to shop locally.  For individuals and families, the pins are fun to collect.  Because they are small in size and easy to pack in a bag or suitcase, most travelers purchase several to take home with them.  That’s why it’s important as a store owner to offer different sizes, shapes, and colors to choose from.

Custom lapel pins are the perfect way to get the word out about camping and campgrounds nationwide.  The small pieces of memorabilia are customized for each location which ensures there are never two duplicate designs.  The personalized pins often contain information about the campground including its name, location, and the year the campground was visited.  This serves as a reminder to the person wearing the pin where it came from and how it was obtained.

Campground lapel pins are handed out to campers as a way of promoting the pastime.  If others see the pins, they are more inclined to go camping on their next vacation or break from school.  That’s what makes the custom pins such an effective marketing tool.  Who doesn’t enjoy nature?  Being in the Great Outdoors is something that has been written about for years.  Individuals, scout groups, and families take to the woods and see what it’s like to sleep under the stars.
