Designing Lapel Pins For Awesomeness

Don’t settle for plain when designing lapel pins, make an AWESOME lapel pin! The Pin People has designed tens of thousands of lapel pins and there have been some of them that have really stood out because of advanced techniques and little thinking outside the box when it comes to lapel pin design.

There are many various techniques and different processes that can be used in order to great an awesome lapel pin.  we will use a few examples of ways to think outside of the box when it comes to designing lapel pins.

Here are two design for awareness ribbon pins:

Flag Awareness Ribbon Lapel Pin - Designing Lapel Pins

This design is using a simple Epola or Hard Enamel lapel pin style process.  It is a very simple and straight forward process. There is a cutout, which is the piercing or whole in the middle of the lapel pin.  It also is cut to shape of an awareness ribbon.  The colors are separated by thin metal lines .  It is a very beautiful simple design, however there are a few things that could be done to really make the awareness ribbon design “pop’!

 

Awareness Ribbon Lapel PinWe see here in this example an awesome awareness ribbon lapel pin.  It is using a spun cast design  with colors and layers.  Actually there are two separate pins here.  You will notice the hurricane symbol is actually a separate lapel pin that is attached to the awareness ribbon after the fact.  This second pin makes the design pop a lot more and because of the 3d element that the spun cast design offers, it really makes the pin “pop”.  Which one would you rather?

There are other processes that really allow a pin to be brought to the next level.  In this design you actually see the skate pop out in a 3D PVC element.  Well, I think that is awesome!  It definitely separates this ice skating pin from 99% of the other ice skating lapel pins out there.  This is another way to think outside of the box.  Different elements can be combined to create lapel pin awesomeness (ok, not sure if awesomeness is a true word, but we are going to use it!).

 

I often stop people on the street that are wearing lapel pins and say, “Can I see your lapel pin”.  They are usually taken back by that, but when I explain that I am a lapel pin designer, they usually start to ask me questions about their pin.
