National Field Trip Month Custom Lapel Pins Educate and Excite

October is the perfect time for a field trip.  The cooler weather makes traveling with children more comfortable.  Many museums also see a change in exhibits and the artifacts being displayed during the fall.  Landmarks and points of interest become less crowded as classes resume and summer vacations end.

If your school is planning an outing during National Field Trip Month, there are a number of things you can do as teacher or volunteer to make it more memorable for all the people involved.  Creating custom lapel pins to hand out on the bus or in the minivans you travel in is one thing that resonates well with students, faculty, and parents each and every year.

What Makes Custom Pins Ideal?

Custom lapel pins are the type of item that people love to wear and share with others.  They can be designed in a way that ties into the theme of your field trip.  If there’s a message to be learned from the experience, pins can serve as a reminder of that.  Children and adults alike can look at their memento fondly and remember the fun outing that they were a part of.

There are a number of different things that make custom pins ideal for field trips.  Here are a few things for you to consider:

  • Pins are your creation making them unique mementos that no one else in the world has. 
  • They can be any size, shape or color that you desire.
  • Pins can include your school logo or choice of emblem on them.
  • They appeal to people of all ages.
  • Pins can be used as an education tool.
  • They are portable and easy-to-attach.


Lapel pins can be classic or extravagantly colored and embellished.  The choice is yours.  We offer a number of different add-on options meant to make your pins even more appealing visually.  Ask about glitter, colored simulated gemstones, and cut outs if you’re interested in having them incorporated into your design.
