Custom Die Struck Pins

Crafting beautiful and lasting pieces of art, die-struck pins are created by expertly striking precious or standard metals against a solid form - creating an intricate impression that is both bold and elegant. The result? An eye-catching creation made with dense material to ensure durability for years to come!

What are die struck pins?

Unlike cast pins where a design is created from zinc or pewter. Manufactured with a custom die using your design. We stamp our pins into bronze, brass, copper or iron metal. Striking a logo into metal creates a recessed area where the color is added. In some cases, recessed areas are sandblasted to create a two-tone metal-look. With so many different occasions to choose from, die struck pins are the perfect gift for any employee recognition program. They can be used as a way of honoring academic achievement or showing team pride and they'll even work well in some cases when you want something more personal with your company's logo on it!

Die Struck vs Cast

Die-striking and casting are two precision techniques that can transform a flat metal sheet into something truly special. With die-striking, an impression of the design is made by pressing metals like brass or iron against a steel mold, while with casting, intricate details such as cutouts and double-sided logos come to life by pouring material onto the crafted mold. Together they create lasting impressions!

Antique Pins

Antiqued by hand, our die-struck pins can also have color added to the recessed areas, making them a great choice for highly detailed logos. Die-struck antique lapel pins are the right choice for showing the details not normally revealed by other styles, especially when your design includes an animal, face, or vehicle. Our artists can add a light, medium, or dark finish to this style, as well as add texture to the recessed areas to create a more three-dimensional appearance (3D).
