Colleges and Universities Are Turning to Custom Lapel Pins For Many Different Reasons

in College

In the last couple of months, we have been receiving inquiries for lapel pins from many colleges and universities.  Virginia, UMASS Lowell, Texas A&M and LSU are just a few of the many educational institutions that we have had the pleasure of working with.  What we have found to be most rewarding about these experiences is learning the many different ways in which colleges and universities use their custom school lapel pins.

For UMASS Lowell, we were commissioned to create a lapel pin that student ambassadors would wear when they were giving prospective students a tour of the campus.

The LSU lapel pin was created for their law center and is handed out to each new student who is admitted into its program.

Some other great ways that Lapel Pins Plus has witnessed colleges using customized pins are as follows:

  • Fundraising Items. Lapel pins have proven themselves as a great way to raise money to support student government associations, sports teams, clubs and off-campus events. By selling them to supporters, giving them out as a thank you to donors, or simply using them like admission tickets to events, university students and administrators have been able to successfully increase their available funding.
  • A Keepsake for Inductees. Hall of fame inductees often get the added privilege of receiving special award lapel pins to mark their induction into the school’s Hall of Fame.  Be it for outstanding sports or academic standing, recognition lapel pins give these remarkable individuals a little something extra to look forward to and show off.
  • A Way to Build Competitive Spirit. University sports teams have not only used lapel pins to raise money, but also as a way to boost the morale and competitive spirit of their teams. By designing a new pin each year, teams are also competing off the courts or fields. Determining which one of them has the most popular, creative and tradable lapel pin design has become a sport in and of itself.

No matter what the reason, lapel pins are a tool for colleges and universities whose immeasurable value, limitless design potential and practicality have made them a necessity.  They offer an inexpensive way to help identify any event or cause that is important to the school.
