A drawing pin (in British English) or thumb tack (in North American English) is a short nail or pin used to fasten items to a wall or board for display and intended to be inserted by hand, usually using the thumb.
Pushpin is a thumbtack, whereas thumbtack is a small nail-like tack with a slightly rounded head that can be pressed into place with light pressure.
Contrary to popular belief, the thumbtack was invented as early as the mid 1870s, although the British term 'drawing pin' was in use sometime in the 1850s or 1860s, and patents exist for the item as early as the 1890s.
According to their function, pins can be made of metals (e.g. steel, copper, or brass), wood, or plastic.
