The jewelry like appearance of this pin is perfect for promotional events, building your brand, or awarding to a valuable employee. When choosing a Cloisonné pin keep in mind that all designs must have an exact outline for each colour fill so the colours don’t bleed into one another.
Die Struck (Soft Enamel)
Soft Enamel pins are commonly used as free giveaways at trade shows, souvenirs for tourist spots, and sports memorabilia. When customizing a Soft Enamel pin use simple designs that have defined and separate colours. An optional epoxy protective coating can be applied to protect the color enamels from fading or cracking over time.
Die Struck (Gold on Gold)
Die Struck pins offer the refined look of metal on metal that is often used as awards for years of service, universities, or outstanding achievements. The pin has a base that can be made of premium metal materials, recessed areas that can be sandblasted to add texture, or a smooth matte finish. These pins work best with simple designs and can be either 2D or 3D.
Photo Etched pins give your design a sharp look while making it come alive. Thin metal lines separate the colours from one another while the surface of the pin is completely smooth and polished. This pin requires a relatively simple design with an exact outline for each colour.
Offset Printed pins are made with a laser printing technique that can capture the most detailed image, colour gradient, and text with a clarity that will astound. You also have the option of adding an Epoxy finish to your pin to add extra protection.
Laser (Silk Screen) Printed
Silk Screen pins have the design painted onto the pin, using a method similar to making silk screen shirts. Silk Screen pins are a great choice when exact specifications must be adhered to, such as with trademarked symbols.
Now that you have a generic idea for your pin it’s time to choose a metal plating finish. The term “plating” actually refers to the metal used for the pin; whether the pin is fully 100% metal or a combination of metal and colour enamels. The types of finishes we offer are:
Brass (Fake Gold)
Brass Brush Without Plating
Pin on Pin
A 3D look is created by riveting one pin on top of another.
An extension is added to hang from the base of the pin in the form of small loops or chains.
A Spinner pin has a spinning mechanism that moves a piece of the pin 360 degrees.
Relatively new to the lapel pin design, a LED is an embellishment that causes the pin to begin to flash or light-up when activated.
Just like an upside-down dangler pin, except that a bobble pin uses a spring instead of a chain.
Looking for an interactive embellishment? A Slider pin has a movable piece that slides back and forth across the base of a pin.
