How to Order Your Custom Lapel Pins

There are several factors to consider when you order a custom designed lapel pin, and we are here to help you every step of the way. Here are the answers to some commonly asked questions about ordering custom lapel pins:

Size is animportant consideration, and you should think about what size the wearer is expecting before committing to a design. The size of the finished custom pin will determine the amount of information and artwork that can fit on the pin. Remember, the more text you have, the smaller the text will be on the finished lapel pin, and if you have a large amount of text, we recommend a lapel pin in a round or oval shape.
Yes, for an additional charge, we can engrave the back of the pin with a small logo, message or date.
Yes, we can match colors exactly on most of our custom-made lapel pins. The exception is our cloisonné pins, as they are limited to a few hundred rich colors.Here, at The Monterey Lapel Pins Company, each custom die is hand crafted to exacting standards, replicating the finest details of your preferred design, and the lapel pins are then produced from a bronze or iron base and completed in any number of metals, enamels and/or finishes.  The result is a lasting, superior quality pin you can be proud to share.
The most common fastener for our lapel pins is the post and clutch fastening, which pushes through clothing. If you prefer a fastener that does not pierce clothing, we can provide a magnet for an additional charge.
You can choose from copper, bronze or iron with many different types of finishes. The magnet fastener requires the lapel pin to be made from iron in order to create a powerful hold.
All of our styles will make beautiful pins, but what’s best for you depends on your project, artwork and budget. We suggest printed pins for an exact reproduction of a logo, which will also lower costs in a custom design. Hard enamel pins cost more, but the result is a heavier, more substantial lapel pin. Choosing an antique or two-tone finish will provide a lapel pin that looks elegant and has a higher perceived value.
We can help! You can call us or email us to discuss your ideas, designs or sketches for your pin. Once we review your artwork, we will happily suggest the styles that would suit your design best.
Production time varies depending on the style of pin you choose, but it normally takes between 2 to 3 weeks. Rush jobs can usually be accommodated for an additional charge.
Because we provide all design and artwork at no charge and have low minimum quantities.
