You can find custom hat pins just about everywhere. Some of the most popular types include military
and music festival hat pins, but you don’t have to look far to find others. The pins on hats at the Masters Tournament, for example, are well known collectors items because they’re only given to players. All kinds of other sports, clubs and event hosts create their own custom designs. Here at Signature Pins, we specialize in handcrafting unique pins of every shape and size imaginable, so if you have an idea for your own set of custom hat pins, give us a call, and see how we can bring your vision to life.
Hat pins are used in a similar way as lapel pins. Some are worn to show a person’s support for a team or group, to raise awareness for an important cause, or simply to decorate an outfit. The designs range in colors, shapes and sizes depending on who the hat pins are made for, but in every case, a custom hat pin is designed to help tell a story.
Whether it’s a veteran’s military hat pin or a pin featuring a company or event logo, our Signature Pins team is here to help you bring your vision for design to life. If you have an idea for a custom hat pin design of your own, just let us know. There’s a whole world of possibilities for unique artwork and custom designs, giving you the chance to show off a little personality with your headgear.
Designing Cool Hat Pins For Any Occasion
The best part about custom made pins is that they can be anything you can imagine. Our job here at Signature Pins is to help every customer find the perfect balance of artwork and design that helps tell their story. Whether it’s a set of military hat pins for veterans, a club pin to share with your team, or a band hat pin for a music festival, we’ve got you covered.
Most hat pins will spend a lot of time outside under the sun, so one of the best ways to make your design stand out is to choose the right plating style. High polish gold and silver pin designs shine under any light source, giving your artwork an eye catching appearance that will stand out against the fabric of a hat. Depending on the color of the hat your pins are attached too, black metal pins or antique metal pins may blend into the fabric and be harder to notice.
Glitter enamel is another great option for helping your design stand out from the crowd. Traditional soft enamel pins offer plenty of room to play around with vibrant designs, but glitter enamel adds a special shimmer to certain parts of the artwork. Glitter is perfect for creating cool hat pin designs for all kinds of different events, but it’s especially popular for customers creating band hat pins or festival pins.
Since a lot of shows take place outdoors after dark, incorporating blinking lights into the design of band hat pins or festival pins will ensure your design still makes an impact even after the sun goes down. While a blinker is a fun way to make a unique design, keep in mind that the pin will be a little heavier than average because of the blinker assembly on the back. This can cause the pin to droop forward if it’s attached to a hat with thin fabric like a bucket hat.
When it comes to something like a military hat pin, one of the best ways to make the design special is to include things like unit emblems, service awards or references to the specific equipment soldiers were trained to use. For example, Air Force, Army and Navy pilots sometimes wear full 3D pins in the shape of the aircraft they were trained to fly. 3D artwork offers an unrivaled level of depth and detail, but 2D artwork is an excellent option for anyone looking to make a design with a unit emblem embossed at the center.
Getting Started on Your Order of Custom Hat Pins
To get the ball rolling on a new order of hat pins, all you need to do is fill out a free quote form on our website. The quote form is the perfect place to let us know what type of pin you’re looking for, jot down any of your ideas for custom artwork, and indicate any custom options you would like to see in the artwork. It’s also the best place to let us know how many pins you need and the attachment option you would like.
A traditional post and clutch attachment works well for most hat pins, but if you’re worried about the clutch interfering with the way the hat rests on your head, a safety pin attachment may be your best bet. If you’re planning on attaching a pin to the bill of a hat, a magnetic backing will keep the pin in place without the need to pierce through the stiffer fabric.
Our sales team is happy to help you find the best custom options for your design if you aren’t sure what will work best. On top of free artwork, we offer free revisions, so be sure to let us know if you would like to change any aspects of the artwork or improve the design in any way. Once you feel everything is perfect, we can finalize your order.
