Enamel pins custom made with your logo!

Custom etched enamel pins, also known as photo-etched soft enamel pins, have a very specific look and feel that is very popular. No matter how modern the design may be, there is always a sense of timelessness with a custom enamel lapel pin that goes beyond the antique process we use for our die-struck pins and coins.

Custom etched enamel pins are also known for their ability to capture an impressive amount of small detail as well as being the lightest weight enameled pin we make. Fine detail is achieved by using a unique acid-reaction process, rather than die striking, to create the color cavities. The high detail in combination with its light weight makes it a popular choice for those looking for trading pins, promotions and other types of giveaways.

How to Order Your Custom Etched Enamel Pins

There are several factors to consider when you order a custom etched enamel pin, and we are here to help you every step of the way. Here are the answers to some commonly asked questions about ordering custom enamel lapel pins.

How are etched enamel pins made?
These customized pins have one of the unique processes known to the industry, surpassed only by the cloisonné technique. For an etched enamel pin, an image of your custom design is transferred from a photographic negative onto the surface of the base metal, then an acid-reaction process is used to etch the design into a brass base. The indentations left by the acids are filled with enamel colors and fired. Last but not least, an epoxy coating is applied over the entire pin, protecting the enamel color and the metal from scratches.

How long will it take to get my customized pins?
Production time varies depending on the style of custom enamel lapel pin you choose, but it normally takes between 2 to 3 weeks. Rush jobs can usually be accommodated for an additional charge.
