Pins for Sororities and Fraternities
Greek sororities and fraternities are an active part of campus life at many colleges and universities. These organizations may have different names and goals for their members, but wearing custom enamel pins is something they all have in common.
Members Bonded Together by Pins
Finding the right campus Greek organization to join is not a frivolous matter. Both the pledgee and the sorority or fraternity must agree that a student is a good fit for the organization. They must also get along well with other pledgees and members. Those who successfully pledge join organizations that have deep roots going back over 100 years in many cases.
Greeks value the history of their organizations and proudly wear Greek letters representing either a sorority or fraternity. These letters are displayed on T-shirts, hoodies, hats, bags, and most importantly, the pin. Many new members receive a pin upon acceptance. A Greek pin is a cherished item that is often worn by students and alumni who are joined together in solidarity.
Revive an Old Pin Design
Over many decades, there have been countless campus Greek organization pin designs worn by sorority sisters and fraternity brothers. Vintage Greek organization pins are not only collectible items, they also serve as blueprints for creating new pins. Local, district, and national Greek chapters can re-create a specific pin to mark a special occasion, and offer it to members as a limited-edition pin.
Create a Modern Pin Design
Traditions are fine, but there are times when breaking with tradition can lead to exciting pin designs. Students can get creative with how the Greek letters are arranged, color choices, and even pin shapes. Consider incorporating inspiring words, chapter location, and important dates into the design.
Bring on the Bling
Give your Greek pin design some extra pizzazz with add-ons, which are decorative accents used to make pins extra special. Many sorority pins are bringing the bling these days by adding gemstones as a border or to accentuate certain areas. Gemstones create an elegant look that is suitable for work and special events.
Go the fun route and choose the glow-in-the-dark add-on. Glow enamel pins worn at night are easy to spot, and make your group stand out among the frat crowd.
