What Should I Consider When Ordering a Custom Pin?

There are several factors to consider when ordering. Here are the answers to some commonly asked questions when designing or placing your order.

Size is animportant consideration, and you should think about what size the wearer is expecting before committing to a design. The size is determined by the amount of information and artwork that can fit on your design. Remember, the more text you have, the smaller the text will need to be and if you have a large amount of text, we recommend a round or oval shape.
Yes, the back of your design can include a small logo, message or date.
Yes, we can match colors with the exception of cloisonné. Cloisonne is limited to a few hundred rich colors.
The most common fastener is the post and clutch fastening, which pushes through clothing. If you prefer a fastener that does not pierce clothing, we can offer you a magnet attachment instead.
You can choose from copper, bronze or iron with many different types of finishes. The base metal can be zinc, brass, bronze or iron. The magnet attachment requires the base metal to be iron in order to create a magnetic hold.

Why should I choose soft enamel? Reason number one is the price point is lower than a hard enamel style. Reason number two is this style has vivid color that is recessed below the surface.  Plated in gold, silver, copper or in an antique finish.
