The first thing to come to mind when you think about political lapel pins might be flag pins. Particularly during election season, you’d be hard pressed not to notice the number of flags stuck to the candidates’ lapels. But that’s not where the story of political pins ends.
In the end, the uses for political enamel pins are about as endless as the uses for lapel pins themselves. There are presidential political pins, funny political pins, pins for showing appreciation to staffers, and so much more.
Some of the design elements that are common to these types of pins change depending on the intended use of the pins themselves, but if you’re at all unsure of how to design your political lapel pins, you’ve come to the right place.
Political Lapel Pins After the Campaign Ends
During a campaign, flag pins take prominence in order to appeal to the largest number of voters. But what are some of the options you see once the campaign trail comes to an end? Whether a candidate is victorious or not, the need to thank the people who helped them run a good race is imperative.
Pins for staffers after the race are more like employee appreciation pins than political pins. They’re a way to say thank you and show the people who regularly work long hours, and who are often volunteers, just how much their effort meant to you. As such, they aren’t as bound by some of the common design elements found in other political pins. National colors are still the most common, whether presented in soft enamel or cloisonne pins, but the message behind the pin can be completely different.
Pins worn by candidates typically have a simplicity or a level of decorum to their designs in order to not offend the voters. However, pins intended to be given to staff or sold to the public for fundraising initiatives aren’t as stuffy. Those pins are often personal or even funny in their designs. Funny political pins are common for fundraisers because it’s easier to sell comedy to your supporters than it might be to sell it to the public at large.
Funny political pins can be pins that bash the competition, or even pins that take a particular gaff from the candidate in question and turn it into a self-deprecating joke. Either option is equally valid since the candidate isn’t really intended to wear them. Much like campaign bumper stickers, the sky’s the limit.
Who Buys Presidential Campaign Pins?
People running for office are hardly ever seen without a lapel pin, but what if we told you that presidential candidates and other campaigners don’t account for even half of the political lapel pin sales during any given campaign season?
The truth is all of the political support materials you see, whether they be campaign buttons, bumper stickers, yard signs or any of the other hundred items used to show your support of a candidate, were more likely to be purchased by an independent party or a Political Action Committee in support of the candidate.
Anyone is free to create pins for a presidential election showing their support of whichever candidate. The pins are used for fundraising efforts with the proceeds being donated to the campaign. And the good news about that is they can look like and say anything you want. If you’re looking for an easy way to contribute to your candidate’s campaign without dedicating long hours volunteering or breaking the bank to make a financial contribution, selling custom political campaign pins is your best bet.
