Insert the bent part of The Surepin® into the upper stem of your finished boutonnière using your thumb or a flat-edged tool. Make sure it is pushed up as far as it can go.
When it comes time for your customer to pin on the boutonnière, simply show them that you attach by using a downward motion (and remove by pulling up).
Just that easy, your boutonnière is attached and picture-perfect! The Surepin® acts as a way for you to ensure that your design looks exactly how you imagined. No flopping!
While The Surepin® was designed to better secure boutonnières and corsages to a lapel, it is also effective in attaching flowers, ribbon, tulle, and more to any fabric anywhere! Below are some ideas to help designers utilize The Surepin® to its fullest potential and to help bring his or her visions to life!

“'You’re using that pin, right'-What I hear all the time from my 'prom moms'. The Surepin® has created a following for my shop for all the dances due to its ease of use. When I introduce this in my wedding work, the kids can’t believe how easy it is! The Surepin® ensures our beautiful work stays beautiful!"
"[The] Surepin® has made a tremendous boost to my business. We use this on all corsages. Prom mothers and brides are absolutely thrilled. Word of mouth kudos from them bring in new customers for the easy to use corsages! We can see the end results a lot of the times when we pick up rental items after an event and guess what..the bouts and corsages stay in place and look great after a day/evening long event. Love, love, love this product!"
"Hi! I just wanted to tell you how great your Surepins® are. We got a box a couple weeks ago and used them for our first prom of the year. We received rave reviews! We took a chance and used them on ALL our bouts, including daisies and alstromeria! They worked great and had no complaints. Thanks! (Months later) I have to say I have had nothing but good reports and I have been using The Surepins® for everything. I have not had any problems with any types of flowers. All of the kids last year said the REALLY liked them and are hoping to have them again this year. In fact I am getting ready to gear up for prom and will call you for a couple of boxes……"
"Our customers love The Surepin®. It is so much easier than using the regular straight pins. We show each customer how it works and it is great at keeping the flower straight on the lapel. It makes us stand out as innovative and forward thinking. It’s a little thing that makes life easier for our customers."
"I bought Surepin at a show many years ago. I bought 2 boxes. I am in a very small town and found it was much easier for my prom customers and larger occasions for corsages and boutonnieres, to utilize Surepin. Their easy attachment for the consumer, recipient, and all involved made them a "no brainer". I have almost exhausted my supply and have looked at many wholesalers, in Maine and Massachusetts to Rhode Island, to purchase but couldn't find them. So I'm glad I googled, found you and placed my order. Thanks again!!! With shotgun casing boutonnieres in Oct to the multiple single carnations corsages and boutonnieres for a hospital event, my work will be much easier and my customers happy."
"I am not a “5th” generation florist; that is good and sometimes not so good. The good thing is I am always looking for products that improve our service. The Surepin® is a sure bet….guaranteed!"
"We have been using Surepins® for the last 3 years. We absolutely love how [much] easier they are to use and the amount of time in labor we save. Our customers love them and it has actually increased sales!"
