It is often difficult to acquire a somewhat general gift that will allow a business owner to honor their employees in a modest and yet memorable way. For instance, let’s say that you like to give out a gift or token to an employee of the month, or even to an employee of the year. While you could hand this valuable person a gift card or some sort of certificate, you could also hand them a wonderful lapel pin instead.
Are there really lapel pins for men and women alike? This is a reasonable question, but it is important to remember that these pins don’t come in just a single style or format. For example, the employer who wants to create a somewhat fun and yet competitive atmosphere could give out an employee of the month pin that was made from highly affordable and stylish enamel, cloisonné, or even one that is digitally printed with the company logo. Staff could have an ongoing competition to see which department head or team member acquired the largest number of these pins over the course of a single year.
Alternately, you could give out a precious metal lapel pin which has been hand-crafted into the shape of the company logo and made from gold or sterling silver. There are even options for precious gemstones or jewels to be added as well. This would be a remarkable gift for special staff members or for those earning an employee of the year recognition of some kind too.
Lapel pins can be as simple or as formal as required, and the range of options available for large or small purchases is actually somewhat impressive. There are makers of fine lapel pins that can provide a business owner or organization with so many different styles that it could easily become an overwhelming decision. This is the main reason to identify exactly how you will choose to honor employees with such a gift before selecting the lapel pins they will receive.
How many options will a buyer have? There are economy styles, there are lapel pins that can be die cast or die struck, there are antique and precious metal styles, aluminum and digital printed options, and there are even styles with flashing lights and those with printed photographic images as well. This means that they can be a great way to acknowledge employees or to allow members of an organization to wear a very recognizable and yet distinctive pin.
For example, let’s say that you are the director of a very large non-profit organization. You would like to somehow acknowledge volunteers, staff, and donors in a way that also promotes the organization. Lapel pins are the perfect answer because they are small, completely customizable, and affordable. You could acquire them by the dozens or even by the hundreds and give them to staff members to wear at any events, send them easily in the mail as a thank you gift to a donor, or even hand them to every volunteer who attends events or who helps out at organizational facilities. Each one of the pins could have the logo for the organization, making them a bit of free marketing too!
