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!
