What message do you wish your pin to give out? Read on for our handy guide to help you choose the perfect type of pin for your project.
Hard Enamel & Cloisonne
Choose Cloisonne for high-status, traditional pins. Cloisonne is especially suitable for fraternities, sororities, country clubs, upscale corporate brands and government agencies.
Choose Soft Enamel for bright, durable pins that confer prestige. They are ideal for school sports teams, children’s clubs, special events and souvenirs.
Choose Die Struck when a distinguished, classic look is needed. With their understated two-tone metal finish they are a respectful choice for long-service pins and medals.
Screen & Offset Printed
Choose Screen Printed for a creative and affordable look that appears the same on the pin as it does on your brochure. Ideal for appreciation and attendance awards.
Choose Photo Etched to achieve a high-status look when the budget doesn’t stretch to genuine cloisonné. These durable metal pins are great for memberships and awards.
Die Cast & 3D Pins
Choose Die Cast when you want a 3D pin and colors and names are not important. Great for pins with parts that stick out. Perfect for animals, toys, planes and symbols.
Made In The USA
Choose Made in the USA when the occasion demands that every part of the pin from the paint to the clasp is 100% made in America.
Choose Quick Pins when you find yourself needing pins in less than a week. With custom artwork and 12 shapes to choose from, they won’t let you down on quality.
