Team spirit

Associations include consortiums, alliances, coalitions, leagues, unions, guilds, federations, cooperatives, syndicates, and partnerships. All associations have a common goal, be they a large professional association like a bankers association or a small crafter's guild. Many association members invest their time and effort to make their communities better. As they work toward mutual goals, they share time.

Professional pins are an important part of modern association identity, so we specialize in individualized designs. In most cases, it is possible to use your own logo or the company's own font. And to protect the wearer's work clothes, we have the option of magnetic fasteners. The pins can be optimally attached to any item of clothing, which makes opening and closing very easy and quick.
