What is the difference between a button and a pin?

Buttons (or pin-back buttons) are made from metal and feature a safety pin clutch. We offer buttons in basic shapes including round buttons and square buttons.

Pins (or enamel or lapel pins) are made from various materials and commonly feature a butterfly clutch or rubber pin back. We offer custom pins, made from a solid, clear material that can be printed in full colour, cut to any shape, and features a rubber pin back.
