The above-mentioned pin badges need to have small holes on the clothes or collar when they are worn. If there are no holes or you don’t want to puncture your clothes. you need magnets!

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.
