When it comes to designing an eye-catching, memorable lapel pin, there are a few things to consider.  People notice the tiniest details.  That’s why it’s important to consider whom your target demographic is and what it is that they find most appealing about your business, club, school or organization.

Here are five areas to focus on when creating your custom lapel pin design:

  1. A logo or graphic. Many people make their logo or graphic the focus of their design.  They often put the image in the middle of their design as a way of grabbing people’s attention.  If you want to change things up a bit, ask the designer to place the image off to the side or at the top or bottom of the pin.
  2. Meaningful text. It’s not just about the size and font used to deliver your message.  Your design will be more visually appealing if your message matches the theme of your pin.  Consider adding your business, club, school or organization’s name and location.  You can even add your slogan or famous quote.
  3. Bright, vivid colors. The right combination of colors makes custom lapel pins pop!  Consider using a different colored background than white.  This is an easy way to stand out in a crowd.
  4. Attractive add-ons. Glitter, simulated gemstones, dangling charms, and blinking lights are easy ways to increase the appeal of your lapel pin design.  They help highlight different areas of your pin and make them easy to recognize from a distance.
  5. The back of the pin. This area is often neglected.  You can have a custom backstamp created with your website or email address.  Others can flip the pin over and have a way to contact you at a future date.

If you’re organizing a special event this summer, you know how pesky paper admission tickets can be.  Oftentimes, they’re lost or damaged.  People even forget to bring them with them to events because they’re small and easily overlooked.  We have a solution for this problem.  Rather than use paper admission tickets, why not order custom lapel pins instead?

The idea is the same.  People purchase a lapel pin and wear it to the event.  This gives them access to all of the entertainment, activities, and workshops being held during the time allotted for the event.  Ticket takers will see the pin and know that the person wearing it paid to attend the festival or conference.

A greener option than paper, custom lapel pins reduce waste which means less manpower and resources need to be used for clean-up.  Attendees at the event get to go home with a small yet meaningful memento which they can wear years after the festival, outdoor concert or conference is over.

Here are some ideas on how to make your order of custom lapel pins stand out:

  • Choose an unusual size or shape.
  • Make your logo or image big and colorful.
  • Add glitter.
  • Put your contact information on it.
  • Add blinking lights.
  • Have an area of your design cut out.
  • Make your pins have a sliding or spinning piece.
  • Create a charm out of your pins.
  • Order custom lanyards to go with your custom lapel pins.

May is Better Sleep Month.  The idea behind the initiative is to get people to develop better sleeping patterns.  Reduced concentration, mood swings, irritability, stress, and weakened immune system are all contributed to improper amounts of sleep.  Well-rested people are better equipped to deal with whatever life throws at them.  They also have healthier habits regarding diet and exercise.

If you’re a hospital, health clinic, mattress manufacturer, school nurse or health practitioner, you’ll want to promote healthy sleep habits this May.  You can do this easily with custom lapel pins.  We take your idea or concept and turn it into attractive, meaningful pins for you to hand out at conferences, health screenings, and workshops.  This gives people something to remember you by.

Lack of sleep can be detrimental to a person’s health and well-being.  That’s why it’s important to stress the necessity of a good night’s rest.  Your lapel pins can be customized to reflect this.  According to findings from the National Sleep Council which supports Better Sleep Month, “People who sleep between 6 and 7 hours a night actually live longer than those who sleep for 8 hours.”

Health-related awareness pins make a big impact on the people that they’re given to.  That’s why our team of talented designers is committed to making your Better Sleep Month lapel pins eye-catching and memorable.  Using your photograph or image, we can determine the best size and shape for your May awareness month lapel pins.

Submit your design ideas to us today by emailing or calling 1-800-252-0904 toll-free.  You can also visit us on the web at  No matter which way you decide to approach it, having custom lapel pins on hand to give out during Better Sleep Month is ideal.  Contact us today for a no obligation, free price quote and full color digital proof.
