What’s the Right Size for My Pin?
The right size for your pin will vary according to the use you will give it.
For custom lapel pins that will be worn on nice formal suits and that will resemble a piece of jewelry, a size between 3/4″ and 1″ will be just right.
Pins that are given to volunteers, and are supposed to make an impact, stand out, can be between 1″ and 1 1/4″.
Trading pins are almost in a category of its own. They need to be flashy and get lots of attention, so anything from 1 1/4″ and 2 1/2″ is fair game.
How Do You Manufacture My Pins?
For almost all of our pin styles, we use the die-struck method: we manufacture a die and we then strike the design into the base metal, which is then colored, plated, and polished. Die-strucking works great for designs that are 2-dimensional and pins having a flat base.
3D Casting is also an option, and it is mostly used for pins that have a three dimensional quality to them, and pins with cut-outs.
Where are our pins made?
We work with overseas factories for best craftsmanship and economic prices but if you must have Made in USA manufacturing, we can also source those for you.
How Long Will It Take For My Pins To Be Made?
Most die-struck lapel pins are made within 3 weeks of ordering and 3D Cast pins will take a little longer (3d sculpting is a delicate process). We can try and rush production of your pins but we offer no guarantees.
What’s Your minimum Quantity?
We have a soft 100 minimum pin ordering policy. This is the minimum quantity we offer with a great pricing. If you need less than 100, we can accommodate your order but the price per pin will increase substantially.
How Can I Customize My Pins?
We can help you create a custom lapel pins order for an extra fee using the following methods:
- Engraving: The most common use of engraving is numbering the pins, used mostly for those considering their pin for collectors.
- Printing: We can silk-screen any message on a hard enamel surface, a great way to create a customized years of service pin.
