Hillel Academy in Pittsburgh, PA provides a custom-made lapel pin to its students and staff. These pins help promote school spirit and recognition. Hillel Academy’s first pin was a elegant rectangle shape Die Struck pin with gold plating, using just the schools logo. The logo is raised & polished gold metal with a recessed and sandblasted background. The pin was an instant success, so that hey decided to have another pin made. The second pin was a classic Die Struck Soft enamel pin with silver plating. This time, the shape was a circle with “Hillel Academy” text and the logo in the center. The text and logo are raised & polished silver metal with recessed enamel color. The pins were produced in both red and blue enamel color. Changing the enamel color on the pins did not add to the cost and provided both students and staff the ability to choose their favorite pin. When buying a custom lapel pin, changing the enamel colors or the plating option (gold, silver or black nickel), does not add to the cost. By changing these options, you can create unique variations of the same pin and offer more choices to the recipients. Changing enamel colors or plating can also signify different levels of school achievement or academic recognition.
Hillel Academy is a private Orthodox Jewish Day School in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA.
