Lapel Pins

Whether you're looking for a fashion accessory or a stylish way of showing a particular affiliation, lapel pins add a decorative touch to any suit. Choose from a range of designs, or go with a customized look for awards that mark a business anniversary, sales achievement, or fraternity acceptance. Staples® carries a variety of certificates, ribbons, and award-based pins for any occasion.

Decorative Lapel Pins Add Style
Most suit lapels, which are the front folded edges just below the collar on both sides of suit jackets, feature small holes designed for holding buttonhole flowers and other accents. Special occasion pins range from bright and colorful to simple and understated, letting you choose options that pick up other colors in the suit or simply show off your interests. Recognition and award pins let employers and groups show appreciation to those reaching milestones within an organization. Businesses can show off their brand or new product releases with a stylish, personalized lapel pin for workers, management, and customers.

Understanding the Types of Lapel Pins
Pins come in varying styles that work well for different projects. Cloisonne designs offer a traditional look that focuses on status and quality, making them an optimal choice for corporate brands, government agencies, country clubs, sororities, and fraternities. Soft enamel pins feature a durable finish and bright, eye-catching colors that pair with special events, sports teams, and providing souvenirs. Screen-printed styles are personalized and let you add brochure images and graphics for attendance awards or appreciation. Die-struck metal pins provide a classic look for medals and honoring years of service. Photo-etched products are durable and offer a budget friendly option for awards, memberships, and giveaways.

How Do Lapel Pins Attach?
Stick-pin options feature a thin needle and include a collar that secures it to clothing. Butterfly or military attachments have sharp points and a back that users squeeze for releasing. This style lessens the incidence of holes in the fabric and keeps the pin in place. Some pins have threaded points and screw-on backs for a secure fit. Magnetic styles have a disc on the back of the pin and a separate magnet that holds them securely in place. This option eliminates the need for putting holes in suit material.

What Are Lapel Pins Made From?
Most pins are metal with gold, silver, nickel, or brass plating. These styles provide a durable finish that withstands daily wear. Enamel and epoxy pins feature bright colors and sharp lines for an eye-catching style. Zinc alloy pins are thicker and resist bending, making them an ideal choice for everyday wear when promoting products or employee status.

Do Lapel Pins Work With Other Clothing?
Though originally designed for wearing with suits, a lapel pin works with all types of men's and women's clothing, including polo shirts, blouses, and T-shirts. Users can add them to coats and jackets, uniforms, and vests to show off their personal style and accomplishments.

How Do You Clean Lapel Pins?
Due to where they're worn, most pins require little maintenance. A soft, damp cloth removes most dust and debris. Most manufacturers provide detailed cleaning instructions that protect the finish and color of the designs. You can browse through other paper products to see what fits your needs.
