Anybody can create a great custom lapel pin design. It’s true! Even if you think you weren’t graced with much artistic talent, our artists on staff can help you out with a little bit of elaboration and description from you. Your designs and ideas are guaranteed to pop when you put your trust with us – that much is a given.

However, did you know that pins are often more than just the design? That there’s more to them than the colorful images printed on them?

When you’re putting an image or a product out for the public (for instance, if you’re selling the custom pins you receive from us), there’s always the worry of whether or not your design and ideas are safe. It’s a big world, it’s a wide Internet, and you never know whether the people who find it are trustworthy.

It’s an unfortunate fact that design thievery does happen. We do our best to filter this out by rejecting designs that we recognize as having come from elsewhere, or other clients, but if you’re wary, that’s understandable. Luckily, there are some steps you can take to ensure that your custom lapel pin remains – and is recognizable as – your own!

The easiest way to take care of this is simply to opt for a custom backstamp on your pin. By default, our pins either come with our logo and website URL on the back or blank, but you can replace that with your logo, your name, or any copyright information that you have.

Custom backstamps on your pins allow you to stake a very physical claim. As it’s printed on the back, it’s more difficult for potential thieves to replicate, as only you will have the original image file used to create it. Your backstamp can also work as a great promotional material if you’re giving your pins away for free, or selling them at events such as festivals. With your name and logo, people who enjoy your artwork will be able to find more of it, and you may even find some lifelong clients of your own.

We’re happy to discuss our options for both artwork and custom backstamps with you if you have any questions! Feel free to give us a call at 1-866-604-9462, or shoot us an email at so that we can discuss and get started! Happy pinning!
