For more than 200 years, college fraternities have helped shape
the social lives of students. The bonds formed between members
and their dedication to education and community last a lifetime.
Strong ties and fond memories are cherished, and special gifts
such as custom pins and key chains often find a place of honor
among favorite mementos.

You can help your members feel that sense of belonging and
purpose everywhere they go by creating custom keepsakes they’ll
be proud to carry. Lapel pins depicting your Greek letters are
perfect for announcing an outstanding achievement. Wristbands are
instantly recognized and bring attention to your house’s favorite
cause, while key chains are a fun way for members to show their

Outstanding Achievement Awards

Fraternity and sorority members often excel in academics and
sports, frequenting the honor roll, all-star, and other
top-achiever lists. Lapel pins are a favorite way to recognize
these outstanding students while providing an incentive for
others to push themselves a little harder. Available in a nearly
limitless variety of shapes, colors, and sizes, custom pins allow
you to get your message across with style.

Die struck pins with their polished surface and precious-metal
appearance are a perfect fit for formal occasions such as
graduation and award ceremonies. Dates, events, location, and of
course, your Greek letters, are all easily included on a stunning
pin that is sure to be worn for years.

Tokens of Appreciation

One of the greatest contributions fraternities and sororities
make to any college campus is in helping their members develop
strong community ties and a lifelong passion for helping those in
need. Organizing fundraisers for charity, spearheading community
beautification projects, and working to improve the lives of
others are some of the things fraternities excel at – and for
which members are to be commended.

Custom wristbands are a great way to let members know that their
participation and dedication are appreciated, and to give voice
to your favorite cause. The appearance of these colorful bands
all over campus is a great way to bring attention to the
fundraisers, food drives, and other events your fraternity or
sorority sponsors each semester. Plus, their cost effectiveness
makes it easy to create a new design for each occasion. Your
members will love watching their collection grow.

A Sign of Belonging

Ask any former fraternity or sorority member what the best part
of membership is, they’ll tell you it’s the lasting friendships
they formed. Those memories are cherished for a lifetime, and
having a few custom keepsakes as a reminder make them even more
special. Pledges will be proud to carry their Greek letters
everywhere they go on a top-quality custom key chain.

Consider a new design for each year a member remains active.
Changing colors or the addition of a colored gemstone or a motto
are all great ways to differentiate between years. As his or her
collection grows, members will have even greater appreciation for
the organization of which he is a part.

Ordering pins, key chains, and wristbands for your next
fraternity or sorority event is easy. Look for a vendor who
offers top-quality construction, so you can be sure your pins
will retain their beauty for years to come. Top suppliers offer a
wide variety of styles to match every budget, and include custom
color matching, your choice of attachments, and design work at no
additional charge. Finally, you want to know your items will
arrive on time for your ceremony or event, so be sure to check
the manufacturer’s standard shipping terms.
