Different Types of Enamel Pins

Your choice of pins and pin backings will determine the appearance and how well it will work as a gift. For example, if you are looking to get an employee a commemorative lapel pin as a way to thank them for five years of dedicated and loyal service, then you will want to get them something they can easily and proudly wear at work. For this purpose, a magnetic backing might be best because it will not leave holes in their nice work clothes, and it will keep the fabric from bunching up around the pin.
