February 27th is National Chili Day.  Prepare for your business, organization or community wide chili cook off.  We can help put the finishing touches on your plan by creating a versatile and meaningful custom lapel pin that you can use at your event.

One Order of Pins Has So Many Uses for You to Choose From

No matter whether they’re soft enamel, cloisonné, offset printed or die struck, custom lapel pins can be used to promote your cook off, identify contestants, reward winners in each category, and give attendees a thoughtful memento to bring home with them.

You can include different add-ons like glitter, simulated gemstones, dangling charms, cut outs or silkscreens on your National Chili Day custom lapel pins.  This makes the mementos distinctly yours.  They’ll be as unique as your competition, contestants, and citizens.

More Uses Than You Can Imagine

As mentioned above, there are a number of different uses for custom lapel pins.  They can be used to promote the event.  You can sell pins instead of admission tickets to the tasting.

Pins can be used to identify judges and contestants.  They can also reward winners.  You can have the pins created in different types of metal finishes to signify first, second, and third place.

Last but not least, custom lapel pins will serve as a reminder of the day.  People who came out to support their favorite cooks can look back at the pins and think about the best bowl of chili they ate that day.

This is also an opportunity for sponsors to include their logo or emblem on the pins.  They will benefit from the increase in business brought in because of the chili cook off.  If you happen to be in charge of the event, let your sponsors know that this could be a possibility for them.

February is International Boost Self-Esteem Month.  What do you have planned for the occasion?  Are you planning on rewarding your students or employees with a small but meaningful gift in 2014?  If you are, have you considered the long lasting appeal of custom lapel pins?

The Type of Gift That Appeals to Everyone

Custom lapel pins are the type of gift people respond well to.  Designed with your school or company in mind, they are personal, meaningful, and attractive.  We offer numerous styles for you to choose from.  For example, there is soft enamel, cloisonné, offset printed, and die struck style pins available.  You can also choose the size, shape, and colors that best suits you.

Ways to Boost a Person’s Self-Esteem

In addition to giving a person a gift that tells them that they matter, the Huffington Post suggests the following ways to boost a person’s self-esteem:

  • Stop comparing them to others and they’ll stop doing the same to themselves.
  • Compliment them often.
  • Make a list of qualities that you like and appreciate in them.
  • Smile around them and make the environment that they’re spending time in warm and inviting.

When a person feels great, their productivity increases which benefits you.  Students grasp assignments better and workers are able to meet and exceed goals and quotas.  There are less absences at school and work and students and employees serve as leaders to others around them which is beneficial to the community.

Free Artwork and Design Services

Give students or workers the boost that they need to be happy, healthy, and productive.  We can help you come up with a custom lapel pin design for International Boost Self-Esteem Month.  Our talented team of designers are available to assist you with your request for a no obligation, free price quote.  They’ll create custom artwork based on your needs and specifications and in return, we’ll send you a digital file containing said artwork to you via email.

An activity professional is responsible for planning activities in a group setting.  The trained professionals go through training and a certification process in order to work in a group setting.  They learn to assess the psychosocial, physical, and cultural needs of the older adult.  Activity professionals play a very important role in the health and happiness of the elderly.  Isn’t it time you rewarded them with a gift for a job well done?

Using Custom Lapel Pins to Reward a Job Well Done

Everyone likes recognition.  That’s why it’s so very important to make sure that you take the time to thank the Activity Professionals in your facility.  Make your residents and their families a part of the celebration.  Order enough custom lapel pins to hand out to your administrative, nursing, dietary, and housekeeping staff as well.

Custom pins can be soft enamel, cloisonné, offset printed or die struck.  They can be small or large, traditionally shaped or cut-to-shape.  Pins can be classic metal with simulated gemstones or extravagant, brightly colored cloisonné.  You can include things like glitter, cut outs, and even silkscreens included on your pins.

For many years, custom lapel pins have been a large part of all types of celebratory events.  From birthday parties to anniversaries to business grand openings to holiday gatherings, the small mementos have played a role in making people happy.  In addition to selecting the size, shape, and colors of your celebratory custom lapel pins, you also get to decide which style best meets your needs.  We offer soft enamel, cloisonné, offset printed, and die struck pins for you to choose from.

Why Lapel Pins Plus is Unique

As a leading lapel pin company, we have had the distinct pleasure in creating pins in every size, shape, style, and color imaginable.  With each new order, we have been given the challenge of getting to know our customers and making sure that they’re 100% satisfied with the designs we’ve created for them.  Our track record of success speaks for itself.

In addition to having a knowledgeable and professionals group of sales representatives working for us, we also employ some of the most talented artists in the country to help us create custom lapel pin designs for us.  Their creativity shines through each and every order they help us complete.

A Reason to Party Every Day

Here are five reasons why custom lapel pins should be included in your celebration:

  • They’re unique. The customization process allows room for creativity.  You can create the type of design that shows off your character or the nature of your celebration.  It’s the one time where you won’t be penalized for being bold.  In fact, we can create your custom pins in whatever size, shape, style, and colors that you desire.
  • They can promote your event. If handed out or sold in advance, pins can serve as a reminder of the date, time, and location of your celebration.  Hailed as “miniature billboards” because of their ability to announce an event wherever they are seen, lapel pins remain one of the most popular items our network sells.
  • They can identify key players. From staff members to event goers to vendors to volunteers, custom lapel pins serve yet another function by being a way to ID those playing a role at this year’s celebration.  Pins can have one central design but be created in different colors to establish identity.  For example, paid attendees pins can be red while staff members pins are blue and volunteer pins are green.
  • They serve as a functional and meaningful souvenir. How many mementos does a person receive throughout their lifetime that they cannot use?  Custom lapel pins are quite the opposite.  The small gift items can be worn on an article of clothing or be attached to a hat or bag.  They can be collected and referred to often as a fond reminder of past events.
  • They’re accepted by people of all ages. There’s no concern that a memento will be considered “too old” or “too childish” for someone.  Custom lapel pins are neither.  They’re the perfect gift item for people of all ages.  Men, women, and children love being given pins.  In fact, it isn’t unusual to see a crowd of people of all different ages wearing custom lapel pins at an event or gathering.

National Poverty in America Awareness Month takes place every January. You can do your part to raise awareness about poverty and the poor by hosting a fundraiser and donating the proceeds to a charity or group in need in your community. One of the items up for sale can be your own custom lapel pin. We can design it in a way that makes it a powerful educational tool.

The Statistics Are Alarming

According to, “The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that nearly 870 million people of the 7.1 billion people in the world, or one in eight, were suffering from chronic undernourishment in 2010-2012.”

That is something that can be changed but it’s going to require a lot of work. Your business, organization, school, club or sports team can do its part to take the bite out of hunger statistics. By creating a custom lapel pin to sell at your upcoming fundraiser, you bring awareness to poverty and encourage others to do the same.

An Effective Educational Tool

Custom lapel pins serve as more than a thank you gift for donors. They’re a highly effective educational tool with the power to move people. If you want to speak to the hearts and pocketbooks of future donors, create a pin with an inspiring message.

Have it attached to a piece of custom cardstock imprinted with statistics regarding poverty and the poor. Encourage people to branch out, band together, and make the world a better place one dollar at a time. Don’t forget to include your contact information on the custom cards you order. This will encourage people to communicate with you every day of the year.

2014 has arrived and it’s now time for you to completely redesign your employee recognition awards program.  You want it to be effective and beneficial.  You want to offer an incentive that motivates your employees to be their best and to get the job done right the first time.

So, what do you do?  What item to do you offer to the people behind your company’s success?  We have a solution for you!  It’s small, valuable, and meaningful.  That’s right!  We’re talking about custom lapel pins!

The Benefits of Tangible Rewards in the Workplace

There are a number of different benefits to offering tangible rewards in the workplace.  As nice as it feels to be vocally praised, it’s an entirely different feeling to be praised outwardly with a gift of a custom lapel pin.  In addition to boosting an employee’s self-esteem, a reward also gives its recipient:

  • A feeling of personal satisfaction
  • A reason to meet quotas and other profit-driven goals
  • A desire to step up when the need arises
  • A willingness to support and lead other employees
  • A reason to be at work each and every scheduled shift
  • A longing to remain with the company until retirement

Forbes Magazine notes that the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics states that “As of January 2012, the median time that wage and salary workers had been with their current employers was just 4.6 years.”  That is something, as an employer, you can change.

Reward Loyalty, Productivity, and Exceptional Efforts

Show your appreciation in a new and improved way this year.  Your company will benefit from the changes.  Your employees will be happier, healthier, and more appreciative because of the recognition program you’ve worked so hard to develop for them.

It’s All About the Presentation of the Pins

One thing you don’t want to forget is packages to place the pins into.  We offer a wide variety of options for you to choose from.  Among them, you can select:

  • Individual Poly Bags (FREE with EVERY order)
  • Acrylic Presentation Cases
  • Velvet Presentation Boxes
  • Custom Printed Cards

With Carnival fast approaching, many cities race against the clock to put the final touches on their exciting events.  With every last detail planned accordingly, city officials cannot ignore one of the most important tasks on their To Do List.  That is to order custom lapel pins from Lapel Pins Plus.  More than just a promotional tool, the tiny mementos help identify Carnival attendees, staff, and volunteers.

What is Carnival?

Carnival is a unique celebration which occurs before Lent with the main events taking place in February. It’s highly regarded in areas of the world with a big population of Catholics.  Carnival goers celebrate by dressing in elaborate costumes and attending a giant street party and parade.  One of the most famous places to celebrate carnival is in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Why Custom Lapel Pins?

A street party or parade is no place to have to carry souvenir items around all day.  Custom lapel pins are the type of mementos that can be attached to costumes, worn, and enjoyed.  They’re low-key yet attractive and memorable.

Because custom pins are durable, they last for years and years.  That makes it easy for people to collect the mementos each and every time they attend Carnival.  The collection of pins can be then attached to a bag for safekeeping or worn on a lanyard.

Products to Meet Your Unique Needs and Preferences

We can create lanyards with badge holder IDs with the same design as your pins on them if your budget allows for it.  Let us know what you have in mind for this year’s event and we’ll be more than happy to discuss the different options we make available to our customers with you.

The pins that we create for you can be soft enamel, cloisonné, offset printed or die struck.  This depends highly on your needs and preferences.  We listen carefully to your suggestions and then pass them on to our design team who prepares custom artwork for you.  Once a revision is requested, they make the changes and send the design back to you for approval.

Free Artwork and Designs Services for All of Our Customers
