3D pins are some of the coolest items that we get to make here at Lapel Pins Plus.  When we see a customer’s artwork come in and there is a chance to make a 3D mold out of the design, we seize the moment.  We like this type of pin because there is a certain amount of uniqueness and quality to this style of pin that most others don’t have.

Having a hand carved image of anything is awesome.  Having it on your own pin is even more spectacular.  Take the photo displayed here for example, the ship is 3 Dimensional.  It gives the illusion that the object is coming towards you.  Look at the details of the sails in this image.  We are able to achieve dramatic detail with our 3D molds.

Typically 3D pins are 1 – 1.5” inches in size but can bigger or smaller if necessary.  Consider adding an antique finish to all of the surrounding recessed areas for a more stark contrast.  Details like this adds to the overall appeal of your custom lapel pins.

Don’t miss out on an opportunity to create custom pins.  We can help!  Speak to a representative about your plans and we’ll get started on custom artwork for your 3D design.  Make sure to let us know what you’re intended use for the pins will be so we can suggest the right size and shape for your artwork!

Shaped pins can be anything your mind can imagine.  We don’t have too many limitations and our state-of-the-art production process allows for exact and precise lapel pin designs.  This allows you to express yourself the best way you know how.

Foundations love custom shaped pins because they can easily incorporate the foundation logo on a pin shaped as a heart, lung, and kidney.  Another benefit of custom shaped pins is there perceived value.  People in general perceive custom shape pins as more expensive than regular round pins.  Because one can instantly tell that the pin they are receiving is custom in nature, they equate that to value which will always make you look good in their eyes.

The great part about our company is that the complexity of the design or shape does not affect pricing at all.  A 1” round pin is the same price as a 1” custom shaped pin.  Create a gift item that serves as a keepsake for all of your employees, volunteers, donors or customers.

With fall almost upon us, high school football programs across the country are gearing up for the upcoming season.  Just as the teams are preparing, so are the booster clubs that support the teams.  Boosters consist of parents of student athletes that volunteer their time and money to help the program out.  Their support is necessary to an athletic program’s success.  Without their assistance, few teams would be able to afford to travel to different events throughout the season.

Boosters have chosen to sell lapel pins over the years because they are a great fundraising tool.  The custom items are great because they sell quickly and at a price that allows teams to raise substantial sums of money.  Also, unlike pure monetary donations, the person who pays for a pin actually gets a small, custom piece of art that shows their support.  You’ll see entire communities wearing pins around.  That’s because they want to embrace the notion that teamwork helps athletes accomplish more.

This football season, consider creating a limited edition pin.  This creates an instant demand which will help your bottom line.  You can add a gemstone to a certain number of pins or even sequential numbering.  This helps set the items apart by making them more desirable.

Booster pins can also be created in the shape of a football, a helmet or the school mascot.  The fundraisers typically have a club name like the one you see pictured here.  Most people like being part of a club, it feels accepting and good.  Your club pins will attract people from far and wide just for this simple notion.
