6 Types of Enamel Pin Backings

Types of pin backs available with Sienna Pacific

As an Enamel Pin supplier Sienna Pacific offer a number of ways to personalize your products. With us you can customize your Lapel Pins in many different ways. You not only can choose between styles (hard and soft enamel), materials, platings, finishes and packaging options (as we explain thoroughly in How to Make Enamel Pins That Sell Fast) but you can also choose among several types of pin backs, as shown below.

1. Safety-Pin Backs

As the name suggests, this pin backing consists of a straight metal pin with a clasp that goes through the backside of your lapel pin. This type is mostly used in safety pins and it has become quite popular for enamel lapel pins too because they are easy to apply on clothes or fabrics.

2. Butterfly Clutch

This pin backing is quite similar to the safety-pin but it has a flat part on top of the straight metal pin. This allows you to attach your lapel pins more securely and they are not likely to fall off or get unclasped while wearing them, even with movements. However this type will be bulkier than the safety pin types of pins.

Butterfly Clutches can be made on gold or silver finish.

3. Rubber Clutch

The rubber clutch pin backing is the most popular among lapel pin makers because it holds the pins securely in place while offering a warm skin touch. It consist of a piece of soft plastic that grips your enamel lapel pins and hold them tight on clothes, fabric or any other types of materials.

4. Magnetic Backing

As its name suggests this type of backing is made of two types of magnets. The negative and positive pole attract with each other holding your enamel lapel pins on clothes or fabric. They can also be attached onto metal objects like display boards for example.

5. Self-adhesive backing

This pin backing is the simplest of all types available. It consists of a thin piece of metal with an adhesive tape on one side to be placed onto your lapel pins before you stick them onto fabric or clothes.

Although they are simple and easy to use  they stick better on solid, non-porous materials. If you want to remove them just apply water.

6. Deluxe Clutch

Another option for pin backs is the Deluxe Clutch. This one has an elegant metal piece that grasps around the pin, offering more security than butterfly types of clasps but less bulkiness as well.
