We have been getting a lot of requests from churches for Veterans Day pins.  The religious organizations plan on honoring veterans in their congregation.  Pins will be handed out during Veterans Day services held on Sunday, November 11th.

We have been incorporating the seals of the armed forces on the pins as well as well as an image or emblem of the church that is handing out the pins.  This helps communicate the idea behind the event as well as the spirit of the military.

Other designs we have done are a salute to veterans where we incorporate a bald eagle or an American flag waving in the background.  Patriotic symbols like these help tie in the theme of Veterans Day to your church’s custom lapel pins.

We suggest adding velvet presentation boxes to make the presentation ceremony that much nicer.  This gives the recipients of the pins something to carry, store, and display them in when the pins are not being worn on an article of clothing or a hat.  It also makes it easier to distribute the pins to large groups of veterans at church services.

Custom lapel pins are beneficial tools.  Designed to deliver a powerful message, they can be created to promote emergency preparedness.  Groups and organizations wanting to get a safety message across can do so easily with custom pins.  In fact, few items are as versatile as lapel pins.

Here are some uses for custom pins:

  • To identify employees and volunteers.
  • As fundraisers.
  • To get people to donate blood.
  • To raise awareness about weather systems and safety protocol.
  • To encourage people to build or buy first aid kits.

Lapel pins can be soft enamel, cloisonné, offset printed or die struck depending on your preferences.  Your pins can include an image or photograph as well as your choice of text.  This is a great way to get your safety message out to the masses.  When it comes to emergency preparedness, you can never do too much.

Include pins with literature and hand them out during your safety and emergency preparedness fair.  Hand them out to customers who purchase products from you.  Give them away in the workplace or to people that come into your storefront.  The more pins you hand out, the faster your spread awareness and educate the public about emergency preparedness.

November 10th is the Marine Corps’ birthday.  What better way to recognize members of the military than with custom lapel pins?  Smart, attractive, and a true value, the personalized mementos appeal to all branches of the military.

Custom pins can be created in a variety of sizes, shapes, styles, and colors to fit the theme of a celebration.  The Marine Corps’ emblem can be incorporated into the design making it relevant and sentimental.  Military members attending the birthday celebration can attend the event and have something other than memories to take home with them.

Here are the different styles of pins that we offer:

  • Soft Enamel
  • Cloisonne
  • Offset Printed
  • Die Struck

Select the type of pin that you think will make the biggest impact.  Each style is unique and attractive.  When you order custom lapel pins to give out at special military events, you let each Marine know that you appreciate their service and value them as a human being.

Pins can be presented in a velvet box or acrylic case.  They can be affixed to a piece of custom cardstock and handed out to all attendees at the event.  Cardstock is a great way to further a message.  Because pins are small and have very little surface space, text is limited.  If you want to include a heartfelt message to a Marine, you can do so with custom cardstock.  Just let us know that you’re interested in this presentation option when you contact us to inquire about custom lapel pins.

Dance studios are great for dancers young and old.  Teachers have studios where different forms of dance are taught.  Lapel pins are great because you can have one for the entire company or one for each discipline (e.g. tap, ballet, jazz, acrobatics etc.).  This allows you to recognize individual dancers and their achievements.

How cool is it to hand out pins for each type of dance once a milestone or technique is reached?  Students love collecting all of the pins and showing them off to others.  Families could even purchase the “company” pin to help raise money for rent or costumes.  Pins make great fundraisers because people of all ages love to collect and wear these custom mementos.

Kids are proud to wear their dance pins to school or to the mall to show off their passion.  Pins instill a sense of pride in young people.  They make them feel like part of the community.  The mementos also help them strive to be the best dancers they can be.

Dance pins in the shape of ballerina shoes would be a great gift of dancers in your life.  We can also create other types of pins based on your specifications.  Incorporate glitter, simulated gemstones, and even dangling charms into your design.  Add-ons like these grab people’s attention and get them interested in your dance studio.
