At the LapelPinSuperstore, we understand that custom pins are great for several reasons. They are exceptional for establishing brand presence, building community, and sharing the love of a favorite sports team. They are even an excellent way to make a fun fashion statement. 


We offer an array of custom pin types from hard and soft enamel, to die-struck, 3D mold, and more. But have you thought about what pin backing will be the best for your particular pin? 


It's essential to think about the perfect custom pin backing to fit your needs from creating a custom hard enamel pin or a casual printed logo pin. We offer a number of backing options, and today we take a look at a few of the most common options. 


First up, the traditional black rubber clutch backing. This rubber clutch pin backing is by far the most popular, and it is a standard for most custom pins. The backing's circular shape with a small grabbable holder makes it easy and effortless to remove and attach. However, you can also opt for the yellow rubber clutch backing, which is made for larger custom pins, with two yellow rubber closures for a more secure attachment. 


The butterfly clutch is another popular option, one that offers a bit more security. The butterfly clutch is a traditional option. The small circular shape of silver metal offers a durable approach, while also making it simple and easy to detach and reattach. If you have any pins already, you are probably familiar with the butterfly clutch. 


For an elevated look, we also offer the deluxe clutch. This unique backing is a premium butterfly clutch that boasts a brushed metal look and texture. The small circular shape is easy to apply and remove, while the small knob is made for long-term wear. 


There are also magnet backings that are sure to keep your pin secure and in place at all times. The two-piece magnet is one of our most popular types of pin backings. This allows for a no-puncture attachment. The backing of the pin is secured with a second magnet on the other side of the fabric. 


The bar magnet is also a popular option. Just like the two-piece magnet, the bar magnet uses a securely attached magnet on the back of your custom pin to attach to a second magnet. This is also another excellent option for a no-puncture application, especially for larger pins. 


Last, but certainly is the safety pin backing. This traditional option dates back to the early days of pins. The traditional safety pin is attached to the back of your custom pin and then threaded through the apparel or garment of your choosing. This backing allows for a secure attachment, providing a great way to keep your custom pin in place and on your clothing. 


At the LapelPinSuperstore, we offer a variety of custom pins. We provide fast production times, a quality guarantee, and free shipping anywhere in the United States.
