Recognition pins are great for various purposes. Not only are they relatively cheaper compared to other souvenirs, they are very much easy to customize as well. With that, you can have a recognition pin custom made for your organization, event or business in no time. You are very much free to use whatever design that fits your need or liking.
Various types to choose from
Apart from that, there are also various types of pins you can choose from. They are made from various materials and come in different designs as well. Hence, you have more options to fit your budget.
To get you started, here are some of the more popular types of pins.
This is a great option if you want a pin that is not only elegant, but durable and affordable as well. Plus, they fit any occasion or use. You can use them for corporate events in your company, or simple casual gatherings of sports fans.
Pins of this type have a finish that is like that of jewellery—hence the elegance. Plus, it is also said to be the highest valued of all the types of lapel and recognition pin. Apart from that, another factor to love about this type is its “retro” look. Hence, they are more appealing to collectors and those who want long term souvenirs.
Most of the recognition pins today that are of this type are made with a copper base. Then the enamel colors are mixed individually. Actually, the manufacturing process for cloisonné is more detailed as compared to others. Hence, it is not surprising that it is considered to be a more jewelled or dressy type of pin.
This type is most popular as a pin of two tone metal but has no color. Hence, it is mostly recommended if you want to have a more plain design that still looks classy and simply elegant. In fact, it is widely known for its beauty in spite of its simplicity.
Those who find colors distracting in their pins must also opt for the die-struck type of pin.
Die-struck (soft enamel)
This is the most sought after type for those who want a full range of colors to pick from but still need a thick and strong pin. In fact, the die-struck (soft enamel) pin is recommended for those who want to have a look that is similar to the cloisonné but less expensive.
So with this type, you get a pin that can be colourful and dressy. But you will not have to worry about busting your pockets.
As their name suggest, this type of recognition pin involves transferring a photograph or picture to a pin. So if you want a very detailed look on the pin, then this is the best option for you. In fact, if you want to have recognition pins with an artwork that contains blended colors, this is the only option you can go for to fully capture the beauty of the artwork.
Another way by which you can get an exact replica is through the silk screen recognition pins. The process works just like that in silk screen bags and shirts. You will see the exact same artwork or design in the pin once it is transferred or copied through silk screen.
So if you need a pin with lots of solid colors or details, then this is a great option.
For those working on a tight budget, this is the most economical choice. It is the cheapest. But at the same time, it allows for intricate and detailed designs. You can also put it a full range of colors.
