National Athletic Training Month emphasizes the training of athletes and acknowledges the people who spend their time doing so.  Coaches, athletic directors, and even parents with sports backgrounds fall under the category of teacher.  Recognize the men and women dedicated to athleticism and that of the athletes being trained by creating a gift that they can enjoy year round.  Custom lapel pins are exciting to receive and even more exciting to wear.

Crafted in one of four styles (soft enamel, cloisonne, offset printed or die struck), custom pins are the type of memento that people pay attention to.  Worn on an article of clothing, lanyard or hat, they remain front and center where dozens of people see them every day.

Pins show the unique personalities of their creators.  That’s why we make the customer a part of the design process.  By working with you, we’re able to accomplish something spectacular.  We create pins that you’re proud to hand out.  More importantly, we create pins that people are excited to wear and share with others.

Choose from our list of metal plating options.  We offer the following for you to choose from:

  • High Polished Gold
  • High Polished Nickel
  • High Polished Copper
  • Antique Gold
  • Antique Nickel
  • Antique Copper
  • Black Nickel
  • Black Metal

Decide what size and shape best meets your needs.  If your design is detailed or you plan to include a lot of text on your pins, you’ll want to go with a larger size.  If in doubt, contact us for more information.  We’ll make suggestions based on your needs and personal preferences.

Make March a month to remember this year.  Acknowledge National Athletic Training Month in a new and exciting way.  We can help put a new spin on your celebration.  Contact Lapel Pins Plus with your request for a no obligation, free price quote.  Look for an email from us to arrive to your inbox shortly.

March 22nd-28th is National Cleaning Week.  If you’re a professional organizer or own a housecleaning business, there’s no better time to promote your services.  Custom lapel pins are a great addition to traditional forms of advertising.

People wear your pins out in public.  Their family members, friends, neighbors, and co-workers see the pins and ask where they came from.  Your customers tell the people they’re closest to about your services and how satisfied they are with them.  You ultimately benefit from the referral by having more clients to work with.

Select an image that is familiar to people.  A broom or dust pan does the trick.  Add your logo and choice of text.  If you want to encourage people to contact you, include your phone number, email address or website URL on the pins.  It gives them a reason to use your services because they’re accessible.

Custom lapel pin styles vary.  We offer soft enamel, cloisonne, offset printed, and die struck pins in your choice of sizes, shapes, and colors.  The amount of detail required for your design and text determines how large your pins need to be.  If you have a substantial amount of either, your pins are going to need to be bigger to accommodate the artwork and wording.

Add sparkle with glitter or simulated gemstones.  Cut out areas of the pins and add interest to the design.  We offer lots of ways to make your pins stand out.  See our online gallery for additional ideas.

Order custom cardstock or packaging options for the pins.  We offer individual poly bags for free with every order.  Acrylic presentation cases and velvet presentation boxes are also available to meet your business needs.

Encourage people to do some spring cleaning this season.  Use custom lapel pins to advertise your professional organizing or housekeeping services.  Contact Lapel Pins Plus to discuss options with you.

Reach us through our online submission form, by emailing info@lapelpinsplus.com, or calling 1-800-252-0904 toll-free.  We want to assist you with your business needs for custom lapel pins.

Text, itself, is powerful.  That’s why it’s one of the design elements we emphasize on our customer’s custom lapel pins.  Text tells the public who designed and created the gift item they are wearing.  Text gives people the information needed to make purchases, schedule appointments, and donate time or money to worthy causes.  We can’t stress the importance of text enough.  We want to use this blog to introduce a new idea to you.

Why not make a digital file of your handwriting to use on your pins?  Imagine people’s surprise when they see your signature or penmanship on the custom gift you give to them.  Some people have very distinct handwriting.  Think about Walt Disney.  You’d recognize his signature, right?  Try a new concept out on your order of custom lapel pins.  National Handwriting Day is tomorrow.

They say handwriting is as unique as the person holding the pen or pencil.  The same is said about our lapel pins.  The customization process allows your identity to shine through.  People get to see your preferences in the size, shape, style, and colors of your pins.  Need examples of excellent designs?  Look at our online gallery.  There are plenty of pins pictured there for you to see.

Turn your handwriting into a custom lapel pin.  Send us an image of what you want your pins to say in your own script.  Rather than use your logo or photograph in the artwork we create for you, we’ll make your handwriting the focus of the design.  You’ll have an entirely different pin than the people around you because of your penmanship.

Contact us through our website, by phone or email for more information about the different styles of custom lapel pins offered by Lapel Pins Plus.  We have a form you can fill out online to request a no obligation, free price quote.  You can also submit your inquiry to info@lapelpinsplus.com, or call 1-800-252-0904 toll-free.

The advantages to having custom lapel pins on hand are numerous.  Order from us with confidence.  As a leading custom lapel pin company, we’ve had plenty of opportunity to satisfy our customers’ needs through our creative products.  There’s a lot to be said about custom gifts that are worn and shared with others.

National Volunteer Blood Donor Month takes place each January.  Donated blood saves lives.  The Red Cross highlights the benefits of donating blood on its website.  According to the lifesaving organization, “You will be someone’s hero-in fact, you could help save more than one life with just one donation.”  Who argues with that logic?

In addition to feeling great and getting free juice and cookies, donors ensure that blood is on the shelf when it’s needed.  It’s something the Red Cross notes that people can spare yet there isn’t enough to go around.  That’s why regular donations are greatly appreciated.  Blood donations are accepted from donors every 56 days.

Cardstock is a Professional Presentation Option for Pins

Thank people for participating in your blood drive with a gift of a custom lapel pin.  Attach it to a piece of custom cardstock and present it to them in a professional way.  Extend your message of gratitude through thoughtful sentiments printed on the cards.  A simple phrase like “Thanks for your support!” makes a great impression on the people who helped make your blood drive successful.

Custom Pins Allow People to Express Themselves

Donors, volunteers, and staff members appreciate personal mementos.  They’ll love the pins you give them and want to wear them on clothing, hats or add them to scarves and bags as a form of personal expression.  People are proud of their achievements and like to share them with the world.  Custom lapel pins make that possible.

Glitter, simulated gemstones in a variety of colors, silkscreens, and cut outs are among the extras we offer as enhancements to your design.  Let us know which appeal to you and how you would like them used in your artwork.  We make the design process interactive and fun for our customers.

Make the Most of National Volunteer Blood Donor Month This Year

Encourage future blood donations by acknowledging and thanking donors with a custom lapel pin gift.  Lapel Pins Plus gives its customers options.  Contact us for more information about soft enamel, cloisonne, offset printed, and die struck pins today.  Each has its own distinct look and level of appeal.
