Hole In One Lapel Pins

A hole in one victory is one of the most precious moments a golfer can have in his life. They say that only one in about 8, 000 golfers is able to send the ball from the teeing ground into the hole with just a single stroke of the golf club. Someone who has done this truly deserves recognition. If you have a friend or a loved one who made a hole with one stroke, you can give him or her a hole in one lapel pin.

Hole in one lapel pins, placed on the lapel-the part of collar that folds back against the chest, are simple and inexpensive. Yet they are very symbolic gifts that a person can surely treasure. These pins are perfect gifts for friends who are golf enthusiasts as well as those aspiring for hole in one victory.

Lapel pins vary in design, material and price. If you want to add a personal touch to your gift, you can get a customized hole in one lapel pin.

A gold-finished lapel pin usually costs $ 2 around. The more pins you buy, the less you have to pay. This is a great deal if you are giving out pins to a group of people who share a love for the sport. One hundred pieces of gold-finished lapel pins will only cost you about $ 140.

Cloisonné lapel pins are costly to make so they are sold at a higher price. These pins are made from 'die' or an engraved metal piece with impressed parts that are injected with colors. The pin is baked and then polished. Once polished, these pins look like expensive jewelry, a feature which adds to their value.

Less expensive versions of the cloisonné pins are called the Epola pins or semi-cloisonné lapel pins. These are made of hard enamel, thus, they are easier to make and are cheaper. Many manufacturers market these lapel pins as authentic cloisonné lapel pins, so beware of them. If the pins boast a wide variety of colors, they are most likely Epola pins and not the expensive cloisonné lapel pins.

Other kinds of hole in one lapel pins are 'die' struck lapel pins, soft enamel lapel pins, photo-etched lapel pins and screen-printed lapel pins. If you have captured that thrilling hole in one moment in a photograph, you can have it etched onto a brass lapel pin. This makes a perfect personalized gift.
