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.
Actually, you can wear lapel pins wherever you want. The most common place on a suit is the lapel obviously but which side? According to the etiquette, they should be worn on the left side near the heart. This is specially mandatory for American Flag lapel pins or pins with a patriotic symbolism.
In order to make Hard Enamel Pins, manufacturers have to produce first a mold from your art-design, which is like a negative of your pin. This die will be struck several times onto a metal sheet previously heated. Afterwards the pins are cut, polished and painted.
Soft enamel pins are made in the same way, and some times require an epoxy coating. Plastic or Soft Rubber Lapel Pins are made out of PVC with the help of a mold or cast where the material is poured.
When you order lapel pins you can choose among a variety of backings. The most common backing used is the butterfly clutch. Safety pin is used when the item will be in a lot of motion, to guarantee its placement.
Shiny Gold Sanblasted
It was made using antique bronze on a 3D design, to give it a more realistic feel /look. We are sure the US Military Vets Biker Chicks wear it with pride.
US Military Vintage Brooch Pin
Those unfamiliar with the world of motorcycle / biker clubs wear and accessories, might immediate thinks about skulls, rough designs and foul language, well it might be like that for some but not in this case.
One of those is our US Military Vets customer’ who has ordered lapel pins for his organization in the past 7 years, asked us to create a design for the female riders in his club.
The initial design was a rough draft / sketch but that was no small feat for our design team, who worked on it with much care, as it was a really interesting, artistic design.
We can make 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.
