Frequently Asked Questions

They Are Made In Stages

As soon as you upload your design, the first step in this process is turning it into a mold. We use industrial steel or copper to make the final product which can withstand high temperatures- meaning they'll never break or wear out! The result? A strong lapel pin that won't be bending when stamping against other materials. And with our super tough molds comes no need for trimming off excess metal because there isn't any!!

The Plating Process

Electroplating is where you add an outer layer of metal, like nickel, black nickel, or silver plating. Our pin styles are electro-painted but at different stages in their manufacturing process.Most of our pins receive step before it's finished with color because there isn't much else left to do other than give them that perfect shine; custom pins get one last polish after being made shiny by coating for optimum durability.


The process starts with sketching on paper and then rendering into metal through custom pin design work before being struck by hand into copper or a brass base plate that gets electroplated depending upon the final desired finish or other finish options. After which it is colored if required along with finishing touches such as engraving logos onto them (which has become increasingly popular).

Why Does Casting Make Sense?

Complicated images can be sculpted using a casting process. This allows for high-relief 3D. They are manufactured in bulk overseas to save on costs or in the United States. We are currently manufactured in the USA, Canada, Costa Rica, and overseas. We do not offer free shipping at this time but we have free mold charges.

  • Die Struck: They are made by die striking, an image is transferred into a blank by using a large press. This creates a custom pin with raised and lower sections for the final free design proof.
  • Custom Soft Enamel Pins: They are unique and are easy to customize the same way except they have raised and lower recessed areas one has texture. Recessed areas are usually filled up to 3/4 up the side walls. This style features lots of options including a durable epoxy fill. Epoxy fill allows the entire surface to be covered. They are budget-friendly and one of our most popular products made with all-metal. Our pins include a sturdy pin-back that is polished to perfection.
  • Custom Hard Enamel Pins: Our highest quality lapel Pin also known as Epola and are smooth to the touch. They are smooth to the touch and have a higher perceived value.
  • Printed and offset printing: The most popular technique for creating a full-color design. They are the best for images where there are no solid lines between colors. We are able to match Pantone colors and we can print your insignia in beautiful full color.


From start to finish bulk orders usually take between one and three weeks to produce. The process of creating your own design can be broken down into four steps. A printed pin style is the fastest to produce and typically takes between two and ten days. Make sure to let us know if you need a fast turnaround.

Soft or hard enameling, cloisonne, and printed styles take around 10 and 14 days to produce. Allow 12 and 21 days for casting pewter or zinc alloy. Our designers have experience and you will get proof to review prior to the production of your order.
