Frequently Asked Ordering Question's

How are lapel pins made?

Custom logo pins are made by sketching an idea on paper followed by rendering artwork using graphics software. Part of creating a lapel pin design and fine-tuning a logo by adding color, finish, size, shape and adding backings are part of the process.

The most common metals and styles used are gold, antique copper, and silver. The antique finish has an elegant effect that promotes a timeless aesthetic for any design. If you looking for a certain style, there are a variety of options available - from colors to shapes. With a wide variety of backings including magnets backs and tie bars to high-quality clutches.

For a clean, simple, and stunning creation, die-striking features raised and recessed areas, showcasing the quality of the style you choose. For logos that need a 3-dimensional look and feel, casting offers a classy, intricate, and detailed ways to bring your ideas to life.

Iron is also a good choice for magnet pins.

Compare our top rated styles

We make custom metal pins in cloisonne, cast, enamel and with printing. We can create logos in 2D or 3D  add enamel color as well.

Compare our Best Pin Styles:

Die striking: is the process in which a logo is transferred into a metal blank using a pneumatic press or in some cases, a hydraulic press is used when a mirror-like finish is needed. A custom lapel pin can also be created by the following methods.

Printing: Printed and offset-printing on a metal substrate is the best type to use when a design is in full-color or when you do not want to have metal lines between the colors. 

Casting: Created using a rubber or metal mold, where either zinc or pewter is melted and poured into a mold. This type is perfect for creating 3D or small cust-outs. This process is also less expensive to make so it often the go-to when creating wholesale pins.
