Lapel pins are small pins that have a head on them. The head is a sort of tiny medal that shows the logo of any company. The pin on the underside of the logo can be easily attached to the lapel of the shirt and is thus called a lapel pin. The wearing of a lapel pin shows the affiliation of a person with any specific organization. Lapel pins are given to all the members of an organization and it is a must for them to wear them to office or special meetings on specific days.
Most of the lapel pins are small so that they do not weigh down the lapel, how ever the slightly larger ones are very less in weight. Lapel pins are also used for the boosting of the morale of the workers.
They are awarded by the employers to their hard working employees. Lapel pins in the form of flags, logos, political figures and several different forms are made. They are very tiny but big enough to be seen clearly what they portray. Many lapel pins are given to tourists when they visit different areas in a specific place. A good lapel pin is that which is light enough in weight to keep the lapel in its place and not to weigh it down.
