Die striking: is the process in which a logo is transferred into a 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 substrate is the best type to use when a design is in full-color or when you do not want to have lines between the colors. 

Casting: Created using a rubber or metal mold, where either zinc or pewter is melted and shaped into a pin. 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.
