Fraternities and sororities are an important part of college for many young people.  In addition to providing them with countless adventures, the bonds they make with fellow brothers and sisters are enviable.  Fraternity and sorority life symbolizes carefree times.  That’s why so many create custom lapel pins to hand out.  The pins signify hope, friendship, and cherished memories.

Sororities and fraternities use lapel pins for the pledge ship phase of the initiation process.  This way, everyone on campus can tell by looking at his/her pin that they are joining a particular group.  Once a person is initiated, they are given a pin that they will keep for the rest of their life.  Often times they are handed out in an acrylic box for presentation purposes.  The boxes help protect and store the pins as well.

Philanthropic pins are very popular.  These groups tend to do a few charitable events per year and need fundraising items to sell.  Custom lapel pins are perfect for that reason.  They resemble jewelry, can enhance an article of clothing, and help raise awareness about an event or cause.  Custom lapel pins are a good investment for a low cost.

The Sigma Chi pin you see here was for a special group within the fraternity that met certain goals.  Greek letter pins are also great for alumni as they are always proud to show their affiliation.  This is just one of the many ways we can customize an order of lapel pins.

This helps protect it from damage.  Individual poly bags safeguard the pins during transport so that they arrive to you perfect and ready to sell.

Swimmers are some of the most fierce and competitive athletes in the world.  In the past, we have had the chance to work with many swim teams across the country.  Each brings its own talent and unique qualities to the sport.

Swim teams love lapel pins for a number of different reasons.  One thing that swimmers find very appealing is that swimming lapel pins come in many different shapes and sizes.  This allows each team to represent itself in a unique and memorable way.

One team recently asked us to incorporate their logo into a lapel pin program that would encourage competitiveness.  As a swimmer meets a determined time for a certain stroke, they get a designated colored custom swimming lapel pen.  These pins are then attached to the swimmers bag for all to see.

If others see that you have the gold frog on your bag, they know that you have met the fastest goal set by the team.  Others will see the pins and want to work harder so that they can earn the gold pin too.  Swimming pens are a great incentive because they motivate athletes to be their best.

The frogs you see here are done in our different plating options.  This is a great way to add variety without hurting your budget.  There are lots of ways we can make your swimming lapelpins stand out.  Speak to a representative today about your options.

Visit today to request a free price quote.  You can also email or call 1-800-252-0904 toll-free.  We’ll assist you with your request and help you create custom lapel pins rich in detail and personal meaning.  This will give your swimmers something to look forward to and cherish as they compete on your team.
