The Manufacturing Process Explained
Pin badges, also known as lapel pins, are small metal pins that you can wear on your clothing.
They're often used to show off membership in a group, recognise achievements, or promote a cause. You might have seen people wearing pin badges on their jackets, backpacks, or hats.
They're incredibly popular among schools, businesses, and organisations because they're a quick and easy way to show pride and unity. You can have custom pin badges made with your own design, whether it's your school logo, a cool graphic, or even a picture of your cat (no judgment). They're a fun and affordable way to show off your personality and interests.
- Design: First things first, we'll work with you to come up with a design for your badges that you'll absolutely love. Whether you want your school logo, a cool graphic, or a picture of a taco (again, we don't judge), we'll make it happen.
- Die casting: Once the design is finalised, we'll use a special metal die to shape the brass or iron into the perfect form for your badges. Once this initial mold has been created we'll keep it on file, which can reduce the cost of re-ordering.
- Stamping: Using a giant stamping machine (think of it as a really fancy cookie cutter), we'll press the metal into the perfect size and shape for your badges.
- Plating: Time to add some shine! We'll use a process called plating to give your badges a layer of gold, silver, or copper (or any other metal you fancy).
- Enamelling: If you want to add some colour to your badges, we'll use a process called enamelling to apply a layer of glass-like enamel in any shade you like.
- Finishing: Once your badges are complete, we'll give them a final once-over to make sure they're absolutely perfect. No smudges, no scratches, no problem.
- Packaging: Finally, we'll carefully package your badges and send them off to you. It'll be like Christmas morning, but with less awkward family photos and more shiny metal pins.
