Antique Lapel Pins – Vintage Pins and Die Struck

There are two types of Antique Lapel Pins. On the one hand we have those that are really old or that have been manufactured many years ago and naturally show this kind of rust, sort of oxidation. People like them and seek them because they are like relics, the older the better.

On the other hand we have the Custom Lapel Pins that look vintage but they aren’t. Nevertheless, we are not talking about fake antiques, we refer to common lapel pins that are made with an antique finish. People love them because they give their brand or item an authoritative look adding a dark tone that make them seem aged. The antique finish is often combined with sandblasted background and fits perfect with a gold, bronze or silver plating.

Even if we design and manufacture lapel pins on a daily basis, sometimes we don’t foresee how nice a design will look once the finished product is ready to ship.

When we saw how these die-struck antique pins turned out, the only thing that came to mind was wow, how beautiful they look!

It is great when the right combination of factors, such as size, design, plating and finish is chosen.

These pins resemble the look of pewter pins, which are manufactured using a different process, and sometimes a more expensive one.

We bet the customer is happy with them, and will update once we hear from them 🙂
