Custom lapel pins come in various types, each with unique features that can suit your needs. Die-struck pins are crafted by stamping a metal die into the desired shape onto metal, and have an attractive finish to them.

Printed designs offer stunning visuals on their surface.

Soft enamel pins not only do they look attractive, but they also endure wear and tear due to their sturdy design and are the best choice for branding. A clear epoxy dome can be added to create a smooth surface and to also protect the enamel.

Hard Enamel Pins: When looking for a long-lasting and quality option, they are the way to go. This style features recessed areas filled to the surface with enamel paint and then polished until shiny. Not only do they look amazing, but their sturdy construction also gives them resistance against scratches or fading over time, making these perfect accessories for extended use. 

Printed and offset printed pins are a quick and ideal solution for those who prefer intricate designs and gradients. With the printing process allowing for full-color artwork to be transferred directly onto the metal surface of these personalized items, even minuscule details can shine through!

We ordered alumni pins for our graduating class and Eric and his team were prompt in all correspondence and worked efficiently to produce a great design and get the pins into production. They arrived quickly and were of high quality. We are so pleased with the product and the experience that we are about to place another order!

My experience with the Monterey Company was nothing short of stellar. The communication was quick and concise, but they really took a personal approach and didn't make me feel rushed or pressured at any point. The pins arrived more quickly than originally anticipated, which was a welcome surprise and the quality is far above anything else I've seen on the market.
