Awareness PinsLooking for awareness pins for an event?

We custom make awareness pins for non-profit organizations and companies looking to create awareness for events and causes. Even though everyone loves a parade, it’s not the only way to raise awareness for your cause. It can be easier than you thought—surely you’ve heard the phrase “They wear their heart on their sleeve”? A simple way to educate those around you about your cause is to pin an awareness ribbon to their clothing as a way to spark dialogue and show support for their cause. It has been so effective, in fact, that every color of the rainbow (and sometimes combinations of colors) has been adopted for use by a charity organization.

Let us help you create an awareness lapel pin for your organization? We have created thousands of different awareness pins for our customers over the years, and no two have ever been alike. Many of our custom lapel pin customers have used just the ribbon symbol with the appropriate color for their cause, and others have used the ribbon design along with text or logos. Both ways allow the organization to benefit from the universal understanding of the ribbon, the colors and their meaning, all while adding their own message.

Sample Awareness Pins

The awareness ribbon lapel pins can be made in any color you need, and are small, simple, elegant and much more durable and environmentally friendly than distributing actual ribbons. Designing a custom awareness pin ensures a pin that is both eye-catching and economical, and it will become a long-lasting symbol of your organization. Years from now, your pin can even become collectible!

It’s one of our favorite lapel pins to make, as we get to support fundraising and increase awareness for the most important issues in our world today. And to be as supportive as we can to these organizations, we provide an inventory of stock ribbon pins for different causes. These are easy to order, can be delivered quickly and are extremely well priced—but our designers are always on standby in case a custom design is needed.

How to Order Your Awareness Lapel Pins

There are several factors to consider when you order a custom designed awareness lapel pin, and we are here to help you every step of the way. Here are the answers to some commonly asked questions about ordering custom lapel pins:

Size is an important consideration, and you should think about what size the wearer is expecting before committing to a design. The size of the finished custom pin will determine the amount of information and artwork that can fit on the pin. Remember, the more text you have, the smaller the text will be on the finished lapel pin, and if you have a large amount of text, we recommend a lapel pin in a round or oval shape.
Yes, for an additional charge, we can engrave the back of the pin with a small logo, message or date.

Can you match my logo colors? We can match colors exactly on most of our custom-made lapel pins. The exception is our cloisonné pins, as they are limited to a few hundred rich colors.

The most common fastener for our pins is the post and clutch fastening, which pushes through clothing. If you prefer a fastener that does not pierce clothing, we can provide a magnet for an additional charge.
You can choose from copper, bronze or iron. The magnet fastener requires the pin to be made from iron in order to create a powerful hold.
All of our styles will make beautiful pins, but what’s best for you depends on your project, artwork and budget. We suggest printed pins for an exact reproduction of a logo, which will also lower costs in a custom design. Hard enamel pins cost more, but the result is a heavier, more substantial awareness ribbon pin. Choosing an antique or two-tone finish will provide a lapel pin that looks elegant and has a higher perceived value.

We can help! You can call us or email us to discuss your ideas, designs or sketches for your pin. Once we review your artwork, we will happily suggest the styles that would suit your design best.
Production time varies depending on the style of pin you choose, but it normally takes between 2 to 3 weeks. Rush jobs can usually be accommodated for an additional charge.
Because we provide all design and artwork at no charge and have low minimum quantities. We give all of our customers the best quality and the best prices, with fast production times and top-notch customer service.
