Custom Metal Keychains Come In Hard & Soft Enamel

What is the difference between hard and soft enamel? Hard enamel is a great option if you would like to create a style where the color and metal are on the same level. Hard enamel is also known as the highest quality enamel short of using real cloisonne. Soft enamel had vivid color just like hard enamel but the color is recessed. Either style allows you to have a one-sided or two-sided design.

What about a printed style? 

This is a great choice if your custom keyring has a logo that contains a photo or gradation in color. Our printed keychains are made out of aluminum or stainless steel. This makes them lightweight and less expensive compared to a soft or hard enamel keyring. They can also be made with one or two printed sides.

We all need a way to carry our keys. And because they get used each day, there may be no better promotional item. And with thousands of applications, the sky’s the limit when it comes to your design. If you’re like me, you can remember a time when you had a custom metal keychain with a picture, logo, or design that you loved.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are custom keychains made?

custom apple new york keychain

Most of our keychains are made using a die that’s struck into bronze. This is how we create the incredible detail that’s unique to our metal products. Using a high-pressure die, your design is struck into a high-quality bronze plate. This creates areas on your keychain that are both raised and recessed. After plating, the raised areas are hand polished to give it a smooth, reflective finish. The recessed areas, on the other hand, are sandblasted or treated with an antiquing solution. This final step brings true definition to your design.

3D-cast and pewter keychains are made with rubber mold and metal alloys. With photo etched keychains, your design is acid etched onto metal for a look that’s hard to beat. Finally, printed designs are imprinted on a metal base then coated with a thin, protective layer.

With more than two decades of experience, we can create the perfect engraved keychain for you.

How long does it take to produce a customized key chain?

Most of our custom keychains are produced in 12-20 business days. If your design has 3D in it, we’ll need extra time to create a special proof for your review. In doing so, the production time could increase by 1-2 weeks. The best way for us to give you accurate shipping dates is for us to see your design. This allows us to give you a date you can count on. If you have a deadline, please provide us with that information, so we can do our best to help you. Rush service is available for a small extra fee.

Can I add a logo?

Yes, you can. Our skilled design team can take a simple sketch and turn it into a custom keychain that matches your vision. We’ll give you a custom proof so you can approve of your design before it goes to production. We have many years experience in helping customers through the design process. We can also give you suggestions to help you create the kind of keychain that exceeds your expectations.

We offer pre-production samples:

Correct, you can have the same image on each side, or you can have completely different designs or logos on each side. We  are happy to create an art proof that matches your vision at no charge.

Is there a minimum custom made order quantity?

Yes, we offer low minimum quantities for your convenience. We can also send you pre-production samples so you can see what the final product will look like. This way, you’ll be 100% happy with your design before it goes to production. Because these are custom keychains made specifically for you, the order cannot be cancelled once your proof is approved and production has started.

How much does it costs to ship your order?

Your shipping fee depends on your location, how many keychains you’d like, and how soon you need them. Please call us when you’re ready to make your custom keychain order, and we’ll have an estimate for you right away.
