What is the difference between a button and a pin?

Round buttons (or pin-back buttons) are made from metal and feature a safety pin clutch.

Pins (or enamel or lapel pins) are made from various materials and commonly feature a butterfly clutch or PVC 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 latex free PVC pin back.
