Buttons have long been popular in political campaigns and as a way for people to express their opinions. Celluloid buttons range in size from 1 3/4 inches up to 3 1/2 inches.

Promotional lapel pins are also available in novelty designs such as book and key honor roll pins and guardian angel pins. When ordering pins, consider purchasing custom printed pin cards to hold and display the pins.
