Black Nickel Plating

When needed lapel pins fast, they simply went to and filled out our free quote form. Within minutes they were contacted and offered a free design and quote for their rush lapel pins, which they needed for a Grammy party at the “W” hotel in Hollywood. Companies and organizations choose rush lapel pins for parties and events because a lapel pin is expected yet there is little notice sometimes before the event. Production of soft enamel or offset printed pins require a week or more. Rush lapel pins from Pins Fast are top quality pins that can look just as great as any other lapel pin but they can be produced in a few days.

Rush Pins in 2 – 4 Days

Photodome Rush Example for VEVOWe made sure the rush pins arrived on time, and they were very satisfied with the results. The quality of our rush pins are second to none because we use a proprietary method which creates a beautiful, clear and durable epoxy dome which does not separate from the metal backing like other companies do. The high resolution printing we offer on our rush pins closely resembles the quality found in our offset printed lapel pins. Colors are printed bright and clear, black lines and details are printed crisp and clean.

Pins in 7 – 10 Days

Vevo Lapel PinsThe rush pins were great and they decided to order pins again, but the second time around they had more lead time so we suggested high quality soft enamel lapel pins with black nickel plating. Black nickel metal plating is shiny like silver but darker in appearance. The black nickel metal matches the black contour of their logo and website which sports a shiny black interface. The Vevo pins are a hit – just like Vevo and the artists who’s videos we’ve seen on the Vevo website.

When our customer needed her pins fast for Mardi Gras she contacted It was her all ladies “Krewe of Galatea” that needed the pins, to signify their place in the festival. This was the Krewe’s 43rd year participating in Mardi Gras in Morgan City, LA and she wanted something special – but it needed to be fast.

The pin designers at pins fast used offset printed pins as the perfect solution for these Mardi Gras pins.

The image to the right is a good example of the flexibility of the offset printed lapel pin. Notice the glass like epoxy dome and how it gives the pin a glossy look while protecting it from the elements.

Archbishop of San Antonio Lapel PinsWhen you need lapel pins for churches you can contact Pins Fast. We offer the best prices so that you can get pins cheap and our customer service is friendly and helpful so that you can get pins fast! We always provide free artwork and there are never any setup fees or hidden “bait and switch” tactics that other pin companies use. We simply offer you a free quote with the final price, including free USPS Priority mail.

When the Archdiocese of San Antonio needed lapel pins and other promotional items for their churches promotional event, they filled out our free quote form. Maybe they heard about us from other churches and religious organizations in the southwest who have purchased their custom lapel pins with Pins Fast. We were able to respond immediately with a free design and quote, which was close enough to what they wanted. After changing the design from offset printed to soft enamel, and then gold plating to silver they decided the pins were just right for their Archbishop’s Appeal promotional event. There was never any obligation to buy the custom pins, but we know that when a lapel pin design looks just right our customers will be compelled to purchase. This is why we provide the finest lapel pin design for free with no hidden fees or charges whatsoever.

The Archbishop of San Antonio was able to order their custom lapel pins cheap with Pins Fast. Lapel pins for churches and religious organizations get special incentive pricing from Pins Fast. They also ordered custom pens with their web address custom printed on the sides. Custom pens are a great way to promote a organization, club or business because pens are always in demand. When you hand out a flyer people most likely will not be as interested. On the other hand, someone might ask YOU for a pen and when you give them a promotional pen with your contact and web address printed on it they will be compelled to contact you when it is most convenient for them. Sometimes the best way to reach out to new people is with a custom printed promotional pen.

Car Club Pins

Car Club Lapel PinsThese pins were purchased to give out to members of a European sports car club. Lapel pins can help to signify an exclusive membership when worn in a club or other public area. There are many different types of exclusive membership lapel pins which can be purchased through Pins Fast. These car club pins are a good example.

Even though these pins were inexpensive and made fast, they are a great example of quality offset printed lapel pins.

Quality Offset Printed Lapel Pins

This pin is also very small, and is only about an inch high, yet you can see the exquisite detail that offset printing can produce. Even with a zoomed in picture you can barely see the halftone dots used to create the gray color. This is testament to the high resolution offset printing we offer on our lapel pins. The customer specified that the text only measure 1/16 inch in height, yet is completely legible and prints well.

Pins with Magnetic Clutches

Since the owners of high end European sports cars may be wearing custom tailored suits to the event, the pins were made with magnetic clutches. Magnetic clutches prevent wearers from having to penetrate the lapel of clothing or garment with an actual pin. This can be useful if you want a nice lapel pin for your suit or expensive rented tuxedo, but do not want to penetrate the suit with a pin or damage it in any way.

Offset Printed pins with Gold Plating

This offset printed lapel pin for a car club is not what you would expect from an ordinary offset printed lapel pin. One important thing to note is that this pin is gold plated. Gold plating can be used in very creative ways on an offset printed lapel pin. The negative areas that are not printed let the gold plating on the base of the pin shine through.



Religious Lapel Pins

A lapel pin can be a very classy way to spread the message of your church or organization. When people gather at a public place like a church or synagogue they dress nicely and display their religious lapel pins proudly on the lapels of their nice clothes. This makes the best background for displaying the pins and allows them to become a distinct talking point for everyone the wearer meets. When you want to spread your religious or political organizations message in a grass-roots way, a well designed religious lapel pin from Pins Fast will help it gain momentum and let people know you are serious.

religious lapel pinsRecently we have designed lapel pins for the Consulate General of Israel to the Southwest. The lapel pin’s message was one of unity between the nations of United States and Israel by displaying the message “One With Israel” and intertwining ribbons representing each corresponding nations flag.

These religious lapel pins were distributed to churches and synagogues in the Southwest and the North East to allow members to display their solidarity and support for Israel in these chaotic times.

The pins looked great as a printed pin because we were able to reproduce the logo exactly as it was given to us. Sometimes logos contain gradients and drop shadows which are impossible to produce by any other means other than printing. Printing religious lapel pins can also be less expensive as other pins.

Needless to say the consulate general was very pleased and ordered a second batch!

Picking Trading Pin Size

Hi, I’m Joyce. I process orders for PinsFast and ensure that your customized trading pin will be high quality and delivered as quickly as possible.

One of the most frequent questions that customers ask us is “What size pin should I order?” We are very happy to answer that and help you make your decision, and we’re glad you asked!

Rob, our designer, is tasked with producing a baseball trading pin with an attractive, eye catching design while also putting all the information you want on it. I’ve often seen him struggle to get teeny little numbers on baseballs that can only be read by those with extremely good eyesight.

So, if you have any questions about size, or anything else you need to know before making your pin decision, be sure to call us. Rob answers the phone himself when possible, so you’ll be speaking directly with your pin designer.

I’m looking forward to handling lots of orders of baseball season this year and talking with as many of you as I can.

Happy trading!
