Has anyone of you ever had a custom lapel pin made? If so, is there a company/service you could recommend? I am thinking about having one made for CreativeMornings. Please add your recommendations in a comment below. Thank you!

  1. One of my twitter followers suggested: http://www.pinsource.com/

  2. i’m working with pinsource.com on a lapel pin right now. they’re doing a great job.

  3. I’ve worked with Lapel Pins R Us and Pin Depot in the past. I had custom lapel pins of the Travel Channel logo made for an event where they wanted to hand them out to guests – small runs of about 1000. Both companies gave us a pretty good product. I did a fair amount of research and most of these companies are very similar in cost and product. Think Vistaprint, but for pins. Hope that helps some.

  4. This Dutch company has some good custom options, http://medaille.nl/ let me know of you need more info.

  5. I have worked with http://rockbuttons.com/ in the past. Good prices and service.

    They did all my Olympic pins for me, as well as several suppliers. Great quality and great to work with.

  7. ML Badges, absolutely. They did the Build badges for me, look incredible: http://ndy.gd/3xLj

  8. If you’ve ever seen the pins that Andy Clarke or Tim Van Damme had made (http://dribbble.com/system/users/22/screenshots/667/34373127-1.jpg) you’ll know how great they came out (look even better in real life).

    Both had theirs done by: http://www.mlbadges.com/

  9. Hi Tina,
    One of the best quality pin designer and makers is a person from Juneau, Alaska by the name of William Spear. Here’s the link to get you there, but poke around; there’s great info about the company, the process – and just for fun because Bill is a (good) character, too.

    These products are always top quality. They are also real enamels, genuine collector pins – no cheap imitations. My recommendation would be to get a sample in the mail to compare these pins with other suppliers products and you’ll quickly spot the difference(s). Zipperpulls might be a fun option to consider as well for people who would prefer not poking holes in garments. I have also given zipper pulls to colleagues to use for zipper pulls on their zippered tablets!

    Good luck! Oh, and thanks for what you do. I check in most every day. – Cyndi

  10. What most people dont know is that all of the following companies are under the same roof – literally – in Orlando, Florida, and owned by the same person:

    Pin Depot
    Pin Promotions
    Lapel Pins R Us
    All About Pins
    Lapel Pins Online
    Lapel Pins PLUS

    They all sit just a few feet from each other…If I were you, I’d buy from anyone by these crooks.

  11. 7 years ago, at P. we used Louie Max a couple of times, when he did not have a website yet :

  13. Some of my twitter followers speak highly of ML badges: http://www.mlbadges.com/metal/index.html

  14. We were delighted with the fine folks at ML Badges.

    We were looking for metal badges and – with one half of the @standardistas being married to a silversmith – we had lots of questions about different metals on offer. They were prompt with their answers and sent lots of helpful samples. Ours are here:

    They also crafted badges for Messrs @maxvoltar, @malarkey and the inestimable @drbparsons.

  15. I can highly recommend PinSource.

  16. The Samrock Companies (http://www.shamrockcompanies.net) – Fred Kemp do all my custom lapel pins. And I mean custom! Good luck.
