custom ER nurse pinsLooking for custom nursing pins?

Nursing is a profession that has had a profoundly deep effect on humanity across the globe, with their dedication to helping those who need it most. Using custom nursing pins to recognize the work of nurses has an extensive history that goes as far back as the late 1800s, creating a time-honored tradition that is treasured.
The tradition began as a way to identify the nurse’s school and the level of training they’d completed, and custom nursing school pins still remains as a way for graduates to celebrate and experienced nurses to be recognized for their years of service. But the creativity didn’t stop there—the ways to use nursing pins to depict recognition and gratitude for the important profession of nursing has expanded tremendously.

nursing pinsTraditionally, a nursing school pin would include the emblem or crest of the nursing school and the graduation years.

Custom nursing pins have become a way to celebrate years of service, define departments and specializations, and communicate with patients. We especially like the kid-friendly pins, which are used by nurses to break the ice with younger patients who are scared and undergoing hospital treatment.

It’s not just alma mater insignias, crosses or dates on these nursing school pins anymore; now you’ll find cartoon figures, syringes, lollipops, smiley faces and hearts on nursing school pins, just to name a few.

How to Order Your Custom Nursing Pins or Years of Service Pins

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

Yes, for an additional charge, we can engrave the back of the nursing school pin with a small logo, message or date.
We can match colors exactly on most of our custom nursing school 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 lapel pin. Choosing an antique or two-tone finish will provide a lapel pin that looks elegant and has a higher perceived value.
