Types of Veteran Pins

Veteran lapel pins hold a profound significance in expressing our appreciation for the dedication and sacrifices made by our nation’s veterans. These unassuming yet powerful pins encapsulate pride, honor, and gratitude for those who have served our country. There is a diverse array of veterans pins, each carrying its own unique meaning.

Military Service Pins: Among the most prevalent veteran lapel pins, military service pins are typically bestowed upon veterans who have served in specific branches of the military. These pins, adorned with the emblem or name of the respective service, are donned on the lapels or caps of veterans as a testament to their years of dedicated service. They serve as poignant reminders of the commitment and valor demonstrated by veterans, regardless of their roles in combat or non-combat settings.

Combat Action Pins: Reserved for soldiers who have actively engaged the enemy in combat, combat action pins symbolize the extraordinary bravery and valor displayed in the face of danger. Worn proudly on the uniforms of these brave soldiers, these pins serve as constant reminders of the sacrifices made on the battlefield and are held in high esteem within the military community.

Honorable Service Pin: Honorable service pins are awarded to veterans who have displayed unwavering commitment and dedication in serving their country over a substantial period. Typically conferred upon veterans who have served for at least six months, eligibility criteria may vary based on the branch of service. These lapel pins are a fitting tribute to veterans who have devoted a significant part of their lives to serving our nation.

Veterans Pin Eligibility: The eligibility criteria for veteran lapel pins differ depending on the specific type of pin. Military service pins are typically granted to veterans with more than six months of service in a particular branch, while combat action pins are reserved for those who have bravely engaged in combat. To determine your eligibility, reach out to your local Veterans Affairs office or visit the Department of Veterans Affairs website, where you can access information on the specific requirements for each type of veteran pin and obtain the necessary documentation to establish your eligibility.

Obtaining a Veteran Pin: There are various avenues for obtaining veteran lapel pins. The most common method is through the Veterans Affairs application process, which entails providing official documentation to substantiate your eligibility, such as your DD214 or military service record. Alternatively, veterans organizations like the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) or the American Legion often distribute various pins and honors to their members, and you can approach your local VFW or American Legion Post Office to inquire about acquiring a veterans pin. Additionally, some veteran pins are available through military supply stores and online retailers, providing an opportunity for friends and family to pay tribute to their military loved ones, although they may not hold the same significance as those granted by the Department of Veterans Affairs or veterans organizations. These pins remain a heartfelt way to honor and recognize service and sacrifice.

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.
