Pin badges are used by a range of brands, companies, and charities as a way of spreading the word – but there are options for you to make your own, with a unique design, color, and shape, so you can wear your creations with ease. Pin badges can be added to your wardrobe for a pop of color, to create a statement, and to add another element of style to your look. Read on to find out more about these versatile badges and how you can wear them throughout your day.
What is a pin badge?
A pin badge is a small accessory that you can wear on your clothes as a way of promoting your favorite things. They can come in a range of materials, from enamel pin badges to button pin badges and offset pin badges. You may find them produced by companies to use as marketing materials or used in schools or companies for identification – however, there is a pin badge for everything, from your favorite band to your favorite computer games. They are small but eye-catching and easy to attach to clothes, bags, and homeware. You can even design your own! You can add glitter or glow-in-the-dark components to make them really stand out.
The features of a pin badge
Pin badges have features that make them easy to wear on a range of garments – here are a few of the attributes that will come with some of the best pin badges.
Convenient: As the name suggests, these badges come with a sharp pin attached, to allow for a wide range of applications, meaning you can add your badges to materials like canvas, cotton, denim, and even thin leather.
Durable: When choosing a pin badge, you should make sure it is made from durable materials. Choosing a pin badge that has a thick and sharp pin, colorful pigments and seems sturdy, means you don’t have to worry about wear and tear, so you can wear them as often as you’d like.
Shape and design: Pin badges can come in all shapes and designs, so whether you’re making your own or purchasing an already made option, you can guarantee that there will be something to suit you!
How can you wear them?
So, we’ve looked at what a pin badge is and the attributes that they have, but how can you style them? Read on to find out more about how you can use your favorite pin badges to add to your wardrobe.
Pin badges are a great addition to any jacket, so you can wear them with ease wherever you go. If you’re opting for a more casual outfit, you could add them to a denim jacket for a retro look – you could even add a few to create a statement. If you’re wearing your pin badge for work or school, they look just as good in the collar or lapel of a suit or blazer jacket. If your pin badge is strong enough, they should fit through denim, leather, and cotton, so they can be a good way to make your jacket a little more exciting.
Maybe it’s not jacket weather? Not to worry, you can always add your pin badges to your bag instead! They can spruce up any plain school backpack – you could add a few to create an eye-catching style. You could add them to your reusable shopping bag as a way of promoting your favorite brands, games, bands, and charities when you’re out and about. These pin badges can make a statement on something you wear every day.
You can add your favorite pins to your favorite hats – caps, beanies, berets – they all look great with a colorful addition, and with a hat for every season, you can represent your favorites all year round! You could make your badge the central feature of your hat if it is an otherwise plain design, place it front and center to act as a logo would, or place it to one side for an offset feature.
Frame your badge
If you’re not keen on adding your badges to your garments, or you simply have a few too many to choose from, another way that you could display them is in a frame. You could use a piece of fabric or felt to pin your badges to and mount them on a backing that you can place in a frame and use as a decoration in any room – this is a great way to add a bit of personality to your home, and it can make a perfect gift too!
