The Monterey Company makes custom metal keychains that can be created in days and are created by us using your ideas. It is easy to create your own keychain, there are three easy steps to getting started. Step one is to send us your ideas and sketch. Step two is to decide on the details like the shape, quantity, and size. The last step is to sit back and have us produce and ship them to you. 

Custom Logo Keychains

Most of our custom logo keychains are manufactured 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, they are struck into a high-quality bronze plate. This creates areas that are both raised and recessed. After plating, the raised areas are hand polished to give it a smooth, reflective finish. On the other hand, the recessed areas are sandblasted or treated with an antiquing solution. This final step brings a true definition to your image.

Your Design Ideas

It all starts with a sketch. We can create the perfect product to represent your company, your project, or your personal endeavors with as much detail and preference as you’d like to incorporate. Work with our graphic artist to figure out the best way to bring your sketch to life in a thoughtful and intentional manner. Choose between the many styles and variations listed above, asking questions along the way to ensure you get exactly what you’re after. We will create a digital proof that will include your design ideas. There is no charge for creating your proof and we offer unlimited revisions.

Custom Shapes & Sizes

When it comes to the shape and function, the sky's the limit. Equipped with specialized tools for molding and shaping our products, we can make your product as functional as a bottle opener or even make it feature unique and integrated cutouts perfectly unique to you and your artwork. Because of the many types, styles, and variations, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the process. 

Reviewing Your Digital Proof

Review the complementary proof provided at no charge. Proofs are detailed depictions of your desired designs and are considered the blueprint for your keychain creations. Proofs are sent to you for review after only a few days of your initial collaboration with the designer.

After you approve the proof, you can request samples of your completed keychains. Samples are a good idea for large orders, or if you are unsure of how something will translate from paper to its tangible state.

Enameling Coloring Options

Soft Enamel

The more cost-effective of all of our styles, soft enamel where color is added to the recessed areas and the metal ridges are raised. There are unlimited combinations of colors and textures with our soft-enamel style. From glossy to matte, and from robin egg blue to fire engine red, you really are only limited by your imagination. Colors can be matched using the Pantone matching system.

Hard Enamel

The highest quality option we offer, our hard enamel is the Cadillac of custom keychains. Combining glass-like Pantone color with enamel, this innovative process makes an incredibly durable and versatile product you’ll have to see to believe. With enamel color, you can choose to leave metal trims and finishes, contributing to the overall value and personalization.

Soft vs Hard Enamel

Enamel is added to incorporate color and dimension. It is a process that produces the highest quality and finishes. Two types of color-fill can be added to create this colorful effect. And although they are both high in quality, there are slight variations between these finishes. If you choose not to include enamel, we could add textured backgrounds or even a 3D sculpted area. We also offer a third color option which is called cloisonne.

Things To Consider When Order In Bulk

Consider your budget and the quantity and quality. Ordering in bulk will bring down the unit price. Contemplate who will be using it and what they will find most fun or useful, and think about how quickly you need your design to be processed and your product to be produced. This will help you more effectively navigate the designing process.

Our design team can take a simple sketch and turn finished artwork 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 of experience in helping customers through the design process. We can also give you suggestions to help you create the kind of logo that exceeds your expectations.
