How Are They Made?

An image of your design is transferred from a photographic negative onto the surface of the metal. Your design is then etched into the brass using an acid-reaction process. All the acids and other impurities are carefully rinsed off. The indentations are then filled with the enamel colors. Colors are inserted by hand, one at a time, using different sized syringes.

The sheet of metal is then fired at 450°F for 12 to 15 minutes. Pins are then cut out of the sheet according to your custom design. Non-colored (raised) sections of the pin are then plated to a shiny gold finish. An optional epoxy protective coating (dome) can then be applied to protect the color enamels from fading or cracking over time.All items are inspected twice before delivery: once at the factory, and again by our sales staff before shipping.
