World Rainforest Week is October 12th through 18th.  Organizations involved with preserving nature have events planned that fit the theme of this annual initiative.  One of the easiest and most exciting ways to get the public involved is through the distribution of custom pins.  The attractive mementos make great gifts for employees, volunteers, and donors.  Imagine thanking them with something tangible and meaningful.  The impression you’ll leave on people will be priceless.

Rainforest themed pins can be cut-to-shape to resemble the animals you find in this tropical environment.  Parrots, gibbons, and green iguanas are just a few of the images you can include in your pin’s artwork.  This makes the gift items more visually appealing because of the use of a photo and the amount of color incorporated into the design.  People like to wear custom pins because they complement the clothing they are wearing.  Keep this in mind when designing your World Rainforest Week pins this year.

Hand out pins to the people that attend your scheduled events.  This is the perfect way to get them to participate in future activities.  Lapel pins serve as great motivational tools.  People love acknowledgement and pins make them feel welcomed and appreciated.

October 7th through the 13th is Fire Prevention Week.  Stations around the country are planning for the annual initiative in a number of different ways.  Some fire departments send firefighters to schools to speak about fire prevention.  If your station happens to do this, it’s a great time to talk to us about creating custom pins to take along on your visit.

Lapel pins are great educational tools.  Emblazoned with an image or photograph, they grab children’s attention quickly.  Your set of fire prevention pins can have a safety message included on them.  This can be something as simple as “Don’t Play with Matches” or “Unplug Power Cords”.  Kids will love hearing about your career as a firefighter and will be equally excited when they see that you have brought them a unique and memorable gift.

Fire safety pins can be traded among students.  You can create several different designs as a way of keeping children interested in fire prevention.  These pins can have spinning or sliding pieces, blinking lights, dangling charms, glitter, and even bobble heads.  Make pin trading an interactive and fun experience by considering these options while designing your custom fire prevention pins.

Promote safety with fire prevention pins.  Let Lapel Pins Plus be your number one source for custom lapel pins.  Visit today to explore your options.  Send your ideas to  You can also call 1-800-252-0904 toll-free to request a free price quote and full color digital proof.  Our talented team of designers will create artwork that is eye catching and memorable for your order of Fire Prevention Week lapel pins

Halloween is riddled with excitement and superstition.  Celebrated October 31st each year, the holiday is thought to have originated with the ancient Celtic festival Samhain.  People would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off spirits.  Pope Gregory III designated November 1st as All Saints’ Day and the evening before was deemed All Hallow’s Eve and later Halloween.  The secular holiday is ushered in by communities that host door-to-door trick-or-treating, parades, and costume parties.

Now is the perfect time to start preparing for your annual Halloween party.  Your checklist should include great decorations, a pumpkin, some scary music, and custom lapel pins.  Hand a pin out to each guest that comes to your party.  Each year, change up your design so that your guests can start to collect limited edition pins.  People love adding new items to their collection.  Give them something to look forward to by creating cool pins for your event.

Your Halloween pin can incorporate a jack-o-lantern, or a witch on broom, or any other fitting image.  Instead of handing out candy at your front door to trick or treaters, consider handing out a custom Halloween pin that they will keep for many years to come.  Make your pins memorable by adding glitter or blinking lights.  What’s cooler than seeing a skeleton shaped pin with red blinking eyes?  We offer a variety of options that make your pins stand out in a crowd.  Speak to a representative about these when you inquire about our services.

Contact us today so we can begin the design phase.  Visit to request a free price quote and full color digital proof.  Email your ideas to  You can also call 1-800-252-0904 toll-free.  We can’t wait to get started on custom Halloween artwork for you today.

Emergency nurses are special people.  There is no doubt about it.  The job they perform day in and day out requires skills, compassion, and patience.  Without all three traits, it can be very hard to connect to patients and provide them with the care that they and their families expect to receive when faced with an emergency situation.

October 7th through the 13th is Emergency Nurses Week.  Celebrate the wonderful individuals that make up your nursing staff with custom pins.  The small recognition awards go a long way in boosting morale and encouraging exceptional service in the workplace.

You can host a banquet or luncheon where your emergency nurses are the star of the show.  Honor each by calling their name, announcing the length of their service and handing them a custom lapel pin.  Before the event starts, make sure to place the pins in their own velvet bags or acrylic cases for safekeeping.  The presentation options add to the atmosphere and provide recipients of your gift a place to store and display their awards.

Custom cardstock imprinted with a poem or message of gratitude can also be given to your emergency nurses for Emergency Nurses Week.  Extend the theme of your pins with heartfelt prose.  We can help you select the perfect words for your team.

Honor emergency nurses in your workplace with custom lapel pins.  Take a look at to see samples of pins that we’ve created in the past for our customers.  Contact a Lapel Pins Plus representative by emailing your ideas to or call 1-800-252-0904 toll-free.  We’ll send you a full color digital proof and free price quote.
