Below is a brief introduction to the various pin qualities and styles available on the market today. If you are still unsure as to what pin quality or style would best suit your design, our trained staff can easily assist you in making the right decision.
We recommend these different types of pins...
Our highest quality product, cloisonné pins have a jewelry-like appearance with a high perceived value. They are an excellent choice for any design that has clearly separated colors. Whether launching a product, reinforcing your brand image or awarding employees, cloisonné lapel pins make an impressive statement. We'll also gladly provide jewelry boxes; customized, printed cards; or plastic presentation cases to further enhance the value of your pins.
Our #1 Seller
Soft enamel pins have gained in popularity because of their exceptional appearance and affordability. Similar to our premium cloisonné lapel pins, soft enamel pins have a high perceived value and the look of fine jewelry. Because of these features, soft enamel pins are the #1 choice for sports pins including baseball trading pins.
Stately & Traditional
Undoubtedly the most popular choice for service and years of service awards, die struck lapel pins offer a classic appearance. Without the use of color, metal on metal gives a traditional look whether your die struck pins are polished or antiqued. Available in gold, silver, copper, nickel and combinations of the four. Die struck lapel pins are perfect for clear-cut designs with larger text such as those often used by fraternities, sororities, country clubs and government agencies.
When Every Little Detail Matters
Photographic lapel pins (commonly referred to as offset printed or laser printed lapel pins) offer the most flexibility in design and style. Because they incorporate the use of offset and laser printing techniques, the most detailed drop shadows, gradients and text can be brought out with brilliant color and clarity. What cannot be accomplished with die cast lapel pins can be beautifully created with this process using laser precision.
Precise Detail In Full Color
Similar to photographic (offset printed) lapel pins, silk screen pins deliver a great deal of detail produced in full color. When corporate standards must be followed to exact specifications, silk screen lapel pins are a great option. The screening process allows colors to "bleed" all the way to the edges of the pins and also accommodates accurate reproduction of registration and trademark symbols.
