The Pin Badge 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 hat.

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 company logo, school crest, cool graphic, or even a picture of your cat (no judgment).

They’re a fun and affordable way to market your brand and show off your personality.

We’ll then create production artwork based off your design, specification and requirements.

At this stage we may make some design suggestions to ensure best results.

Once you’re happy, you can give us the approval to begin production!

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.

So, in short, pin badges are little metal pins that you can wear to show off your stuff. Whether it's for a big event, a club, or a charity, pin badges are the way to go.
