Using Custom Lapel Pins to Celebrate June Holidays and Observances

Written on May 25, 2010 at 2:57 pm, by

June is filled with reasons to celebrate.  Along with nationally recognized holidays like Father’s Day and Flag Day, there are plenty of opportunities throughout the month to use custom lapel pins.  All About Pins has come up with this handy guide to help businesses and organizations promote themselves in new and creative ways.

A few of our suggestions include:

June 1st is Stand For Children Day. Awareness ribbon lapel pins can be created to speak out against Child Abuse, educate the public about the effects of Autism on a family or raise funds for after school programs and recreational facilities.

June 4th, 1896 is the day that the first Ford was made. Automobile enthusiasts can show pride by ordering custom lapel pins for their car club.  These items can then be used to promote events and encourage new members to join the organization.

June 5th is World Environment Day. Companies, sports groups, and youth organizations can take a stand against environmental destruction by creating and wearing custom lapel pins.  Messages about reducing, reusing, and recycling can be incorporated into a pin’s custom design.

June 12th, 1839 is the day that the baseball was invented. Sports teams can get ready for the season by ordering baseball trading pins that feature their choice of colors, logo or mascot, and team name.  They can also include information about their hometown and player’s names on the pins.

June 14th is Flag Day. Businesses can show their pride by handing out American Flag pins in honor of the event.  These pins can be traditional or contemporary.  They can be created in a variety of sizes, shapes, and finishes depending on what the customer prefers.

June 20th is Father’s Day. Restaurants that feature a special brunch menu for fathers can use lapel pins to accent napkin rings or place cards.  Sports venues and concert halls can hand out pins as a small token of appreciation for attending an event.

June 23rd is National Pink Day. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is in October but there is no reason why it can be incorporated into today’s theme.  In addition to custom awareness ribbon lapel pins, businesses and organizations can create pink poodles for a Parisian theme, pink flowers for a Garden Club, and pink booties for Birth Announcement pins.

June 29th is Camera Day. Photography clubs can honor their members with custom camera lapel pins.  These items can help identify members, award them for their commitment to the club, and be sold to others as a way of raising money for new equipment or a special event.

Like every other month, there is a lot to be excited about in June.  Custom lapel pins can help businesses and organizations achieve their goals easily and affordably.

Custom Lapel Pins Rank High With Motorcycle Clubs and Riders

Written on May 20, 2010 at 8:57 pm, by

Motorcycle lovers know the importance of owning a quality bike.  In addition to having something reliable to ride on, motorcycles provide their owners with a collectible item rich with personal history.  Motorcycle clubs create custom lapel pins to reward members who have achieved specific goals.  This system of ranking adds honor to being a member of an organization and helps to generate public interest in the club’s events.

Some groups use motorcycle lapel pins to display pride for their heritage or nationality and to draw interest to the type of bike that they ride.  By incorporating their logo or slogan into the lapel pins design during the proofing process, they are able to have a personalized keepsake reflective of their club’s values and mission.   Custom lapel pins can also be created for motorcycle poker runs and other fundraising events.  These promotional products announce specific dates and help solicit donations from the public for the charitable organizations they sponsor.  Different types of backings can be ordered so that pins can be worn on t-shirts and leather jackets.   This helps clubs cater to all types of riders.

All About Pins has created pins of all sizes, shapes, and colors for motorcycle clubs around the country.  We are able to take a design idea and transform it into a one-of-a-kind custom lapel pin with distinction.  Motorcyclists love our custom pins.  That’s why they keep ordering them year after year.  In addition to our free design services, we also offer a full color digital proof, and free shipping services.  This helps motorcycle clubs stretch their budgets and achieve their goals.

Why Choose Offset Printed Lapel Pins?

Written on May 18, 2010 at 7:36 pm, by

Offset Printed Lapel Pins can enhance the appearance of a design by creating a duplicate image of a logo or photograph.  Tiny details and color gradients often make it difficult for some companies to replicate custom images.  By using the offset printing process, All About Pins creates quality pins for customers who use them in a number of ways.

One of the most popular reasons that a customer would choose Offset Printed Lapel Pins is to pay tribute to loved one.  With Memorial Day fast approaching, many men and women order pins that feature a picture of their family member or friend.

Although it is a popular trend to create memorabilia that honors lives lost, Offset Printed Lapel Pins are also used to pay tribute to exceptional men and women.  We were able to create a pin for Fire Chief Robin Colerain and place her photo in the middle of the design.

We also produce these types of pins for fundraisers.  The Top Hatters Frog Jumps Poker Run 2010 was one of the many designs that we were able to recreate using our customer’s photograph.

Offset Printed Lapel Pins give customers more control over the design process.  This ensures that they are 100% satisfied with the service that they receive when ordering from us.

5 Ways to Prepare Yourself for Your First Pin Trading Event

Written on May 14, 2010 at 5:22 pm, by

Pin trading is a great way to promote your team to other players and a fast way to make new friends.  At tournaments like the Little League World Series and Cooperstown, pin trading events are wildly popular.  Designated trading areas are cordoned off for players, coaches, and collectors.  For novices, the atmosphere is unlike any other experience that they have ever encountered.

Pin trading is a serious business.  People from around the world travel to sports events with armloads of pins to trade.  In fact, the Olympic Games has turned pin trading into an art form.  Pins from past events are sought after by collectors.  The right pin can enhance a collection and even increase its worth substantially.

Before going to your first pin trading event, All About Pins wants to offer you some advice.  As a leader in designing and manufacturing custom trading pins, we know how competitive it can be on and off the field.  Sub par pins do not escape the scrutiny of players and sports enthusiasts.  Here is how we can help you make the most out of your first pin trading experience:

  • Think about what you would like your team’s custom trading pins to look like.  Pay careful consideration to include such details as your team’s name, hometown, colors, and mascot.  Decide whether you want the pin to have other distinctive details like glitter, blinking lights or mobile pieces.
  • Determine how many pins to order for each player.  You can do this easily by calculating the number of games or tournaments that you have throughout the season and the number of players and coaches that you have on your team.  Big tournaments require a significant number of pins.  Players typically want to have enough to cover a towel or lanyard.
  • Visit All About Pins on the web or call us toll-free at 1-866-604-9462 to discuss your design ideas with us.  In addition to presenting you with a full color digital proof, we also offer free shipping on every order.  We can take your team information and transform it into a Blinker, Spinner, Slider or Bobble Head.  We can even add glitter to specific sections of the pin as a way of enhancing its appearance.
  • Decide how each player is going to display their trading pin collection. Will they wear it on a lanyard or sling a pin covered towel over their shoulder?  Would they benefit from having a trading pin bag instead?
  • Specify where you want your order delivered.  With the rising costs of carry-on luggage making today’s headlines, it may be better for you to have your order shipped directly to your hotel.  We never charge extra for this service.  It is just one of the ways that we reward you for ordering from us.

Swapping pins with other teams for the very first time is exciting.  When equipped with the right amount of knowledge, even a novice can be wildly successful at events like the Little League World Series and Cooperstown.  Call or email us today to place your custom trading pin order.
