This is great for budget pin options, as well as display pins on hats or backpacks where they are not looked at as closely.
♡ Hard enamel with gold-colored metal.
♡ The pin measures 1.5in (3.8cm), and is designed with two pins on the back to stop from spinning. It's fitted with soft rubber pinbacks, which are both more comfortable, and more long-lasting than the old-fashioned metal backers.
♡ Sugar Lich is stamped on the back.
