Whether you want to create a custom pins (or button as some call it) for your business or just for fun, there are some things to keep in mind. First, decide what size and shape you want your pins to have.

Then choose your design. You can either create something yourself or use one of Dropmerch's templates. When you have your design ready, it's time to add your text.

Make sure to choose a font that is easy to read and that fits your overall design or you upload a finished motif in our editor and customize so it looks good. With our templates you see size and also if something would end up outside the design.

We have chosen to bet on the most classic size and our pins are 1 inch (2.54 cm) largeand comes with safety pin at the back. They can be printed in full color and come in shy packages that are selected to work well as merch and for sale.

What are pins?

Pins are small "trays" with metal needles behind and pressure that can be used to decorate jackets, bags or other fabrics. They have been around for hundreds of years but became really popular during the 60s and 70s when it was hip to have as many different pins as possible. Pins are still used by many today, mainly to express political or religious views.

There are countless variants of pins, ranging from simple pressure on a needle to more complicated models with double print and color. Most pins are about an inch in size (approx. 25 mm) but there are pins that are considerably larger.

Pins can be used for many different things:

  • To create perfect merch!
  • As decoration on jackets, bags and other garments
  • In order to express political views
  • Or simply to do something a little more fun and different!
