Custom School Lapel Pins for Students, Faculty and Family

Some of the most popular elements we see in school spirit pin designs are mascots, flags and school letters. All of our designs are created using Pantone colors, so if you create a mascot pin or school logo pin, you can rest easy knowing that the final design will match the school’s official emblems perfectly.

However, choosing colors and artwork elements is only the beginning. You still need to think about certain design elements that can take your academic pins to the next level.

Considering All Your Options for Custom School Pins

The first thing to consider is the shape of your pin design. Round pins are perfectly fine, but sometimes, choosing a custom shaped design is the best way to get the most out of the available space provided by a pin.

You can order pins in just about any size you would like, however, larger pins will be more expensive. So, instead of trying to fit your mascot in the center of a round pin, why not create a custom shaped mascot pin? Or a pin in the shape of your school’s letters?

For example, a lot of the nurse graduation pins we make are designed to look like a caduceus. Designing pins with shape in mind will help you save money and allow you to get the most out of the available space.

Something else you need to keep in mind while you create a lapel pin for your school is the purpose of the design. Will they be used at a special ceremony like a groundbreaking or student orientation? Or perhaps, you want to use them as graduation pins?

Knowing the purpose of your design will help you decide on the perfect options to include with your purchase. For example, employee recognition pins given to staff members and faculty will often times include gemstones to denote a certain number of years in service to the school. School spirit pins or pins designed for fraternities and sororities look great with additions like glitter enamel and danglers.

At the end of the day, only you know what’s best for your design. We offer all kinds of different options and add-ons that can take your custom lapel pins to the next level, so if you’re looking for ways to spice up your custom school lapel pins, just let us know!

Attachment Options and Pricing for School Award Pins

A lot of our customers forget to think about attachment options for their school pins, but depending on how they are going to be used, certain attachment options might be better than others for your design.

Safety pin backings are great for graduation pins that will be secured to a gown. Magnetic backings are perfect for faculty and staff that want to wear their pins on their lapel but don’t want to pierce the fabric of their coat with a pin. If you need custom school spirit pins for students to wear around campus, a normal pin post and clutch will get the job done, but we also have keychain attachments. But custom keychains are a story for another day.

Pin pricing is based on unit price, which is the amount of money you pay for each pin. Certain design options like glitter enamel, cut outs and gemstones will increase the unit price of your pins. Some backing options will increase the cost of your custom school pins as well, but a post and clutch attachment is always free.
