They can be made into custom shapes and have a high perceived value. Choose from 144 colors using a glass mixture that is fired onto the final pin.

How are Custom Cloisonne Pins made?

The process we use today to make custom cloisonné have its origins on times of the ancient Chinese Ming Dynasty, centuries ago.

This process is considered an art and it involve the use of a die with the shape of your pin design and a glass gravel or glass powder which, when mixed with water in a proper manner, generates a paste better known as “frit”.

Once the frit is done, the manufacturers use it to color fill the recessed areas and bake it at a high temperatures in order to melt it. Polishing and finishes come later to give the pin an optimal look.

    55 out of 5 stars
    "The patches we ordered came out great and the service was impeccable. We needed to edit one of them and they responded within 24 hours to change the order. We even received the order earlier than expected. 10/10 would recommend."
  • Lapel Pin - Classic Hard Enamel
    55 out of 5 stars
    " I really enjoyed working with Dan, who was incredibly helpful in all stages of the project. We are just sending out our 50 year alumni pins to the Class of 1970 this week. We had, of course, planned a formal pinning ceremony as part of our Commencement Exercises, but that is now not possible, so we are mailing them instead to our alums. We were all very pleased with the pins, and it was a pleasure working with Dan."
