Lapel Pins make Headlines at the Oscars 2012

April 24, 2012| Category: Custom Pin Uses

When walking the red carpet at the Oscars don’t forget to wear your custom lapel pin from Pincrafters. Tom Hanks and Christopher Plummer made headlines in the Los Angeles Times as the best-dressed men at the Oscars this year with their custom lapel pins. Christopher Plummer wore a whimsical flower-petal lapel pin while Tom Hanks wore a number six lapel pin. The “6” was worn in respect to the military. The six is in reference to “6 o’clock” as the location of an enemy plane behind you and was worn in support of the veterans “got your six o’clock” campaign. Remember Pincrafters for your next custom lapel pin project.
