AIDS Awareness Month takes place each October.  The annual initiative helps raise awareness of Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS).  The US government’s website breaks down the word AIDS in a language that everyone can understand.

Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome is explained as:

  • A – Acquired – AIDS is not something you inherit from your parents. You acquire AIDS after birth.
  • I – Immuno – Your body’s immune system includes all the organs and cells that work to fight off infection or disease.
  • D – Deficiency – You get AIDS when your immune system is “deficient,” or isn’t working the way it should.
  • S – Syndrome – A syndrome is a collection of symptoms and signs of disease. AIDS is a syndrome, rather than a single disease, because it is a complex illness with a wide range of complications and symptoms.

Red ribbon pins raise awareness about the disease and show support for those living with AIDS in this country.  The small mementos can be sold and the proceeds donated to worthy charities.  The efforts you make today can help save lives.  Educating the public about AIDS is one of the many ways to encourage others to get involved as volunteers and advocates.  Think of all the people who will see your pins and want to know more about your project.

September 18th was National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day.  Businesses and organizations geared up for the event in a number of different ways.  Many felt the need to promote their event in advance to increase attendance and participation.  One of the ways that they do just that is by creating custom awareness ribbon lapel pins imprinted with the event’s name, date, and location on them.  Few items grab attention the way that custom pins do.

The idea behind National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day is to focus on challenging issues regarding the aging population with regards to HIV prevention, testing, care, and treatment.  It also emphasizes the need for prevention, research, and data targeting the gaining population, medical understanding of the aging process at its impact on HIV/AIDS.

Awareness ribbon pins can be cut-to-shape to resemble a ribbon.  You can also feature an image of a ribbon on a traditional shaped pin.  Circles and squares are popular because a lot of detail and information can be included on them.  Your event name, date, and location are a good starting place.  If you want to increase participation at your seminar, health fair or fundraiser, you can do so with custom pins.

Help save lives by creating unique and memorable awareness ribbon lapel pins.  Visit to learn more about the designing and ordering processes.  If you’d rather speak to a representative by phone, you can do so by calling 1-800-252-0904 toll-free.  You can also email your request to  We’re here to help make your awareness month events a success.

Awareness ribbon lapel pins save lives by increasing awareness about a disease or cause that deserves recognition.  Groups and organizations worldwide have adopted this symbol as their own and used it to educate the public about the prevention and treatment of breast cancer and heart disease as well as shed light about political, social, and environmental issues.  In addition to raising funds and celebrating volunteers, custom lapel pins can be given out to survivors and their families for their bravery.

The custom lapel pin featured in today’s blog was made specifically for the Coeur D’Alene Tribe.  According to the group’s website:

The Coeur d’Alene Indian Tribe has a current enrollment of over 2,190 members. The tribe has sovereign authority on a reservation covering 345,000 acres of mountains, lakes, timber and farmland, spanning the western edge of the northern Rocky Mountains and the abundant Palouse country. The Tribe, like all tribes in America, has a government based on executive, legislative and judicial branches. The tribal council has seven members and operates on a parliamentary system, with members elected by tribal vote and the chairman elected by vote on the council. Although he or she would serve as chief executive, the chairman has one vote on the council and does not have veto power.”

Everything we make is 100% custom made which makes it easy for us to take a traditional awareness ribbon design and alter it.  You will see on this pin instead of the traditional ribbon tails, we have switched them out with moccasins.  The center circle is the tribe’s logo which was very important to them to keep on the pin.  Because the campaign was promoting Stop the Violence, that too, was of the utmost importance to our customer.

Sometimes with ribbon pins we will cut-out the top part that is recessed gold on this pin.  Adding cut-outs gives pins added detail and dimension.  Although details like this seem minor, they alter the overall appearance of custom lapel pins.  If you’re looking for a way to set your awareness ribbon pins apart from the crowd, cut-outs are a great way to do so.

If there is a cause or campaign that you would like to bring to the attention of those around you, please contact us today and we will be happy to help create an awareness lapel pin to get your message out there.  By infusing your own personal flare on ribbon pins, you instantly add personal meaning and history.

Spread the word about the causes that matter most to you and your business or organization.  Visit today to request a no obligation, free price quote and full color digital proof.

Whether or not we provide custom awareness lapel pins is a question we have been hearing more and more lately. The good news is, Lapel Pins Plus will not only help you create awareness pins but will design them any way you would like.

We offer many customization options, which includes letting you decide what size your awareness lapel pin should be. Choosing a large sized pin will make your call for awareness more noticeable, spark other people’s interest, and leave a lasting impression. Smaller lapel pins can serve as inspiring accents on hats, bags, and scarves.

Increased Awareness Requires More Colors

Wearing awareness ribbon pins is a meaningful way to show your support and appreciation.  This practice has extended way beyond donning pink ribbons for breast cancer and red ribbons for HIV/AIDS awareness.  As a matter of fact, there are a wide number of other causes and diseases associated with many different colors.

Here are a few of the many awareness ribbon colors that can be used in your ribbon lapel pin design with their meanings:

  • White – innocence, peace, Alzheimer’s, adoption, bone disease/cancer, and men working to end violence against women.
  • Gray – Diabetes, brain cancer, Parkinson’s, asthma, ending sex trafficking, and slavery
  • Lavender – cancer, epilepsy, and rett syndrome
  • Blue – drunk driving, ending child abuse, arthritis, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), and save the music
  • Green – missing children, protecting the environment, kidney cancer, tissue/organ donation, working, and driving safety
  • Orange – leukemia, ending hunger, cultural diversity, and humane treatment of animals
  • Purple – pancreatic, testicular, and thyroid cancers, domestic violence, Crohn’s disease, colitis, lupus, and religious tolerance
  • Brown – anti-tobacco, colon cancer, colorectal cancer
  • Pink and Blue – miscarriage, stillbirth, and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)
  • Jigsaw Puzzle (Multi) – autism

Personalizing the Call Can Truly Make a Difference

Does your company participate in awareness campaigns and fundraisers? Did you know that you can include your company’s logo in the awareness pin design also? Your business’ colors, name, and other relevant details can be added to give the pin a personal touch.

We can also create custom ribbon pins to help you pay tribute to a specific group. Survivors and individuals affected by your cause will feel honored when they see awareness pins made with them in mind. This is another benefit of trusting the experts at Lapel Pin Plus.

To start your order of custom awareness lapel pins, fill out and submit the Free Quote request form or contact us at  Also, feel free to call us at 1-800-252-0904.  Your questions or ideas are welcomed and satisfaction is always guaranteed.

We are often asked the question, “Do you carry stock lapel pins?”  Our response is, “No, we do not.”  The reason for this is that we custom make all of our lapel pins specifically for each one of our customers.  We also make and ship our items fast so that we can meet the delivery dates requested to us by our customers.

Lapel Pins in Every Size, Shape, and Color

Years of service pins, disease awareness pins, and flag pins seem to be the most asked about stock pins.  Our solution to these types of inquiries is that we can have a fully customized version of any of these pins in your hands in about one week.  Why receive a generic pin in five days when you can have a custom pin in seven days?

Custom lapel pins are as unique as the men and women that order them.  That is why it is so beneficial for groups and organizations to allow enough time for us to create their artwork and place the order for their very own lapel pins.  From different shapes to your choice of sizes, we know that details like these add a polished and professional look to the items that you order from us.

Although stock lapel pins are convenient to order, they do not get the same type of response custom lapel pins receive.  Let us add that wow factor to your day.  Visit to find out how.
