Private schools love custom lapel pins.  The small mementos have unlimited potential.  They can be used to promote the school mascot, identify students on campus, and even be sold as fundraisers.  Pins can be attached to a piece of custom cardstock and handed out to parents that are considering enrolling their children in the school.

One of the most successful ways to get students to participate in the fundraising process is to have them submit a custom lapel pin design to you.  After viewing the submissions, you get to choose the one piece of artwork that you feel is the best representation of your school and sports team.  The student gets the glory of having a piece of his or her artwork turned into custom lapel pins.  Now, how cool is that?

Create soft enamel, cloisonné, offset printed or die struck pins in your choice of sizes, shapes, and colors.  We can make it even more attractive for your school by adding a mascot, crest or photograph.  The text included on the pins can direct people to your school website for more information.  They can find out more about your academic curriculum, team sports, and even gain access to a sports schedule so they can attend all of your young athletes’ games.
