die struck lapel pins

Die struck pins are elegant and distinctive and can be made in any size or shape. We use varied metal levels and textures to transform your logo into a beautiful design. Adding 3D to your design is our specialty.

3d designs can be made with more detail compared to 2D designs and can be created by using our cast pins style.

Custom pin style options to choose from:

  • No Enamel: Usually made in an antique finish if you do not want color added to your design.
  • Soft Enamel Pins: Color is recessed and epoxy can be added for a smooth finish.
  • Hard Enamel Pins: Smooth to the touch and resembles cloisonné. Add a tie tack attachment or deluxe clutch!
  • Shiny Plating: Usually made of gold, silver or copper plating.
  • Antique Plating: A great option if you would like to add 3D to your specialty pins.
  • Full Color: Insert an offset printed emblem into your design for a full-color look.


Choose between soft enamel and hard enamel or choose cloisonné for a distinctive look. All our recognition pins can be plated in any finish or mixed and match platings.

How are die-struck lapel pins made?

We double strike each design into a solid piece of metal. Each design is plated and color filled. The final step in creating recognition pins is to polish them by hand. We also create cast pins if you need an extreme 3d look.
