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, square buttons, rectangle buttons, and oval 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 color, cut to any shape, and features a rubber pin back.
