Ribbon Pins, Creating Awareness and Providing Support
Our Ribbon Pins are available in all colors. Ribbon Pins are also commonly referred to as awareness pins. Our awareness pins are 1 ¼” tall x ½” wide. In-stock colors are White, Pink, Red, and Purple and White & Burgundy for the Children’s Awareness Pins. All pins can be personalized on request. For special colors, minimums may be required.
Using these pins to create and celebrate awareness can be attributed to Penelope Laingen, a military wife who tied a yellow ribbon around an oak tree in her yard when her husband was being held hostage in Iran. From that time on, a Yellow Ribbon became the symbol of hope and awareness. Ribbons and the ribbon pin were used to convey the thoughts and prayers that were going out for our troops stationed in faraway places.
