Frequently Asked Questions about Pins
Where's the best place to put pins on a backpack?
Although it's up to you to insert backpack pins, there are a number of more common locations, plus some less-than-ideal spots.
- Main Backpack Body: Backpack pins are often used in this place. Spread them around the bag, confine them to one of the smaller pockets, or completely cover the bag in pins. It's all up to you! Make sure you can quickly zip and unzip all of the pockets.
- Straps: Another absolutely positive yes! Using pins to decorate your backpack straps is a perfect way to make them stand out. To show them off and stop hitting them when you move, keep them higher up the straps. Check the pins on the bag to make sure they don't rub your sides.
- High Impact Areas: The bottom and back of your bag, obviously, aren't ideal locations for pins. However, keep an eye out for areas where your backpack hits a lot of things to prevent losing pins. Do you spend a lot of time pushing your way through crowds? Keep the sides of the room clear. Putting your bag under the seats on an airplane? Definitely put your pins on the top of the pile.
How to put a pin on a backpack?
Our enamel pins have a sharp end for poking through the fabric and a keeper that fits over the post to hold it in place. Simply determine where you want your pin to go, poke the post through the cloth, and slide the keeper on the top. Since the post will come out inside the bag, you'll need to keep the backpack pockets open. Safety pin clutches can be used to attach pins to areas where the post won't go all the way through the fabric, such as straps, or to loop around zippers or handles.
