History of the Senate Lapel Pin

The Senate lapel pin has a long and rich history dating back to the early days of the United States Senate. Today, these delicately designed little brooches have gone through a long history and become symbols of prestige and honor, sought after by collectors all over the world.

The first Senate lapel pins were designed in the late 19th century as a way to quickly identify senators when speaking in the Senate. The first pin has a simple and straightforward design with the letters “U.S.S.” (United States Senate) on a circular background. Over time, however, the designs of pushpins became more elaborate, with symbols and colors reflecting the political and cultural climate of the era.

In the early 1900s, the Senate lapel pin received even more ornate decoration. They’re designed to more specifically represent the state the senator is from, incorporating state emblems and colors into the pins. These pins were worn as an honor lapel pin and were often given as gifts to political allies or voters.

Throughout the 20th century, the design of the Senate lapel pin evolved. In the 1920’s, a new pin design was introduced featuring a miniature American flag with a banner reading “United States Senate.” This design quickly became popular and was used for decades.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to make soft enamel lapel pins

To create soft enamel lapel pins, begin by designing your desired artwork. Once the design is ready, a mold is made by etching the design onto a metal plate. The metal base, usually brass or copper, is then cut into the desired shape and plated with finishes like gold, silver, or nickel. 

Next, each recessed area of the design is filled with enamel paint, using a small brush or syringe. Afterward, the pin is baked to cure and solidify the enamel. Once cooled, the pin undergoes a polishing process to create a smooth surface and enhance its visual appeal. 

A pin backing or fastener is attached to the back, and a thorough quality check ensures a flawless outcome. The result is a soft enamel lapel pin with vibrant colors, textured details, and a professional finish.

What are soft enamel pins?

Soft enamel pins are a type of lapel pin that features a design with recessed areas filled with colored enamel paint. The term “soft” refers to the texture of the enamel after it is baked and cooled. Soft enamel pins have a slightly raised metal outline around each colored section, creating a dimensional and textured appearance.

How to make hard enamel lapel pins

Create a mold of the design, etching it onto a metal plate or using a digital printing method. Apply enamel paint to each recessed area, ensuring it fills up to the metal surface. Allow the enamel to dry before polishing the pin to remove excess enamel and create a smooth surface.

Bake the pin to harden the enamel and achieve a glossy finish. Then, grind and buff the pin to ensure the enamel is level with the metal surface. 

Finally, attach a pin backing, such as a butterfly clutch or rubber clutch, to complete the hard enamel lapel pin. The result is a durable, high-quality pin with a polished appearance and vibrant colors.

What are your lapel pins made from?

We use a range of metals to produce our pins. The most popular kinds are made of brass, steel, and zinc. The base metal is determined by the type and form of pin.

What metal plating options do you offer for your pin?

We provide standard platings in gold, silver, and copper with every order. We also provide improved antique finishes that give your pins a worn appearance.
