Pineapple Pin for Johnson & Wales University

In 1999, Dr. Karen Silva expressed interest in a custom made lapel pin for incoming students of the Johnson & Wales University of Hospitality. We customized our medium pineapple pin, adding the letters JWU.  The letters have hand-painted blue behind them and the pin is finished in shiny gold. The pins have been given to incoming student and are also used at the Denver and Charlotte Campuses. They continue to be a hit.

Pastry Arts Club

The Pastry Arts Club ordered a custom made pin many years ago.  At that time we designed a pastry bag, available in many colors.  Now they have narrowed their favorite down to a light green in a shiny gold finish.

Culinaria Latina

The custom made lapel pins for Culinaria Latina were made using a metal backing, in this case a one inch circle with military clutch back.  Labels were made of their logo and then a clear epoxy finish was applied.  The resulting is a beautiful custom made lapel pin that will last for many years.  This process is a great choice for logos that have a great deal of detail.        

Future Food Entrepreneurs

The Future Food Entrepreneurs, a Johnson & Wales Providence Campus Student Organization, opted for a label with Epoxy process for their custom made lapel pins, choosing a silver finish to complement their Chef’s Coat logo.

Johnson & Wales University College of Hospitality Management

Johnson & Wales University College of Hospitality Management was our first customer in 1999. At that time we customized our medium pineapple pin with the letters JWU and added a blue hand painted background.. JWU pineapple pins pins are given to incoming students at the Providence, Charlotte and Denver Campuses and continue to be very popular with students.
