Shriners International is an organization covering nearly 200 temples across North America, South America, Europe and Southeast Asia.  Once known as the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, it was established in 1870 as an appendant body to Freemasonry.  The organization is best known for its Shriner Hospital and the red fez hats worn by members.

Pins can be used to raise money for an organization’s charity of choice.  They are low cost but high in value which is a great formula for raising money.

Here are some uses for Shriner lapel pins:

  • Great for initiation in the group.
  • Can be used to signify degree of membership, or years of service.
  • Great to hand out along parade routes.
  • Wear them on a famous Shriner fez.

Cloisonné style is often used for membership purposes.  Soft enamel is used for giveaways.  The fully customizable nature of pins is what makes them ideal.  They are truly your vision and a reflection of your club or organization.  People love pins because they are personal, memorable, and fun to wear.

November is Aviation History Month.  It’s the time of year that the United States pays tribute to the pioneers of flight as well as past and current aviation workers.  The annual celebration is recognized in a number of different ways.  One of the most popular things to do during Aviation History Month is to hand out lapel pins to everyone involved with aviation.  This can be the manufacturers of airplanes, stewards and stewardesses, and desk clerks, and pilots.

Custom lapel pins can tell the tale of a famous historical figure or they can be created in the shape of an airplane for easy recognition.  They can be soft enamel, cloisonné, offset printed or die struck.  Lapel pins can feature an image or a photograph on them as well as text.  If you want to promote a website, you can even include your URL in the design.

Aviation History Month lapel pins can be presented to people in a velvet box or acrylic case.  Not only does this provide the recipient with a safe place to store their pins, it also gives them a way to display them as well.  Who doesn’t want to share their unique aviation pins with others?

November 20th is World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.  The annual event pays tribute to the lives that were lost on roadways around the world.  Family members and friends gather together on this day to remember the individuals that they knew and loved.  Custom remembrance pins are a welcome sight.  There is a sense of comfort and community lapel pins bring to get-togethers.  People know that they are not alone when they see others wearing pins to an event.

Remembrance pins have gained popularity over the years.  Honoring a loved love’s life is of utmost importance to most people.  Despite being physically gone, people preserve the memory of the individual by wearing mementos containing photographs and information about that person.

Custom lapel pins can be created using offset printing.  This allows us to make a ‘photocopy’ image of the photograph that is provided to us.  This helps us preserve the original picture and its details.  The finished product is an authentic representation of the person being remembered.  The pins end up being cherished keepsakes for everyone they are given to.  Items like these are perfect for World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.

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.

Marching bands put in a lot of hard work and practice.  Their dedicated members attend band camps and summer sessions where they’re able to show off their skills and make new friends.  Schools around the country emphasize the importance of marching bands by having them play at special events and games throughout the season.

Marching bands have pins made for competitions that they go to.  The bands have pins for Friday night football games that go on their uniforms.  They also make pins for their band camps.  Very few activities are not promoted with lapel pins in the marching band.  An important part of a member’s uniform, you can see what school they go to by looking at their pins.

Pins are traded at tournaments.  This helps foster a sense of goodwill among band members.  Students swap pins with excitement.  This makes everyone feel like a winner despite the outcome of the game or band competition.  Pin trading is a big deal among sports teams and marching bands.

You can even use pins to help raise money for the band.  Band boosters buy the pins and sell them as fundraisers.  Family members wear marching band pins to support their loved one.  This helps band members feel a sense of pride in their abilities and participation.

Rank pins are handed out depending on your level of expertise.  Drum majors have their own pins and flag corps has their own as well.  This helps identify the different bands featured in one school.  As one member masters another set of requirements, they’re given a new pin.  This helps band members strive to achieve new things the whole time they’re in school.

We all remember the excitement of visiting the school store for the first time.  Using the money that was given to us by our parents, we were able to purchase pencils, erasers, and notebook paper from the many shelves lining the walls.  Now, more than ever, schools are adding custom lapel pins to their inventory.

Lapel pins are the top seller for most school stores.  They catch on quickly because when schools run out of the mementos, they call us to reorder.  Custom lapel pins are great for educational institutes because they are cost effective and very symbolic.  Kids are proud to wear their school mascot pins to extracurricular events and around town as well as throughout the school day.

Being able to purchase lapel pins gives students something to save their money for which is a great skill for young people to learn.  When a student sees the pins and knows how much they cost, they use their mathematical skills to determine how much more they will need to purchase the memento.  The students get to apply what they learned in class in a real life scenario.

Your school store can offer multiple pins that help with fundraising.  Because the pins are
purchased in bulk, you can price them accordingly.  Selling the pins for a few dollars each helps
raise funds and support the different programs that are being promoted throughout your school.  What a great way to show support for the school!  Pins can be created in the school’s colors and include its mascot as a way of making the keepsakes relevant and sentimental.

Contact us today for more information.  Visit http://www.lapelpinsplus.com to request a free price quote.  Submit your design ideas to info@lapelpinsplus.com or call 1-800-252-0904 toll-free to get the process started.  We can’t wait to create custom lapel pins for your school store shelves.
