Table Of Content

Except butterfly clutches,there are many different accessories for pins and badges out there, in order to suit different clothes, caps, bags, or uniforms.
What’s more clients are also interested in having different accessories for pins and badges.
If you are, keep reading.
In this article, we will introduce 9 types of accessories for pin and badge in total.

Butterfly clutch

The butterfly clutch is the most popular way to attach your pin. A set comes with 1 blank needle and 1 clutch. Clutch in 11.5mm/0.453inch diameter and 6mm height, to matching lapel pin color, There are four options: gold-colored metal for formal occasions; silver if going more minimalistic or modern looking without any flourish whatsoever – just smooth lines everywhere ; antique bronze which has an aged look achieved by applying natural wear from age Over time on both surfaces while black nickel contains Nickle content onto Silver.

There are two types of blank needles, for normal lapel pins, usually, we use a needle with 4.5mm/0.178inch bottom space, for lapel pin in the cutout design, if there is no enough metal space we will welding a small bottom needle on the backside (around 1.8mm/0.07inch – 2.2mm/0.087inch). Also, there are different lengths for both of them. from 8mm/0.315inch to 14mm/0.552inch. 8mm/0.315inch is the standard length.
The standard size is between these ranges, but it all depends on your design needs whether you need more space at the bottom with a larger-sized pinning implement (like an awl) due to lack off metal material underneath;or if there isn’t enough room left over after cutting out any shape that might be required by customizing jewelry items such as rings needing soldered seams ensured securely without risk involving breakage because too much force has been applied during production.

If you didn’t mention a special requirement, usually we use a 4.5mm bottom blank needle in 8mm/0.315inch length.

Safty pin (safety pin)

Nameplates, badges and cap badges usually come pre-installed with a safety pin (a metal head version). The bigger the size of your name plate orbadge is – meaning it’ll be harder to remove after installation on an object such as clothing – then thicker pins will work best for you.
There are three types of safety pins as below: safety pin with metal head, simple safety pin, and separated safety pin. full width and length details list on the below image. for a 50mm/1.969inch width nameplate, you can choose a 32mm/1.26inch width safety pin as back fitting. For a 76.2mm/3inch height police badge, 50mm/1.969inch separated safety pin is the best option.

Long needle

Some people wear lapel pins on their suits, but you need to make sure it’s done right. A long needle-back attachment will help keep the pin in place and prevent any snagging or catching when moving around too much during an event!


The total length around 52mm/2.05inch, brass cap is 10mm/0.394inch

The perfect choice for any man who wants to look sharp and professional is wear lapel pin with long needle.

No matter how you choose to wear your pin badges, they will stick out like a sore thumb if their holes aren’t hidden by clothes. That’s why we recommend using magnets!
The perfect solution for this problem comes in two forms: small metal discs that can be attached anywhere on any garment and adhesive tape which sticks securely but invisibly beneath the fabric—no one would ever know there was something underneath unless they were specifically looking for it (which most people won’t).

As we know that magnets can attract with iron, for die-struck pins, we will put a magnet on the back directly. for brass lapel pin or zinc alloy lapel pin, an iron plate will be needed to attach to the back pin first.

The following are the best-selling magnet styles, you can choose the most suitable style according to the size and weight of the badge.
