Make wearable art

Custom shape pins have transcended their traditional boundaries and have firmly rooted themselves in the realm of wearable art. These pins, tailor-made to reflect intricate designs, abstract concepts, or detailed imagery, allow wearers to carry a piece of art wherever they go. Many artists collaborate with pin makers to transform their artwork into tangible, wearable items. This not only provides artists with a new medium to explore but also opens up additional avenues for revenue and fan engagement. One of the most compelling aspects of wearable art in the form of custom shape pins is its accessibility. Unlike high-end art pieces, these pins are generally affordable, making art ownership and appreciation possible for a broader audience.

What is the difference between a soft enamel, hard enamel, and offset printed pin?

For soft enamel, you will be able to feel the ridges of the metal separating the colors. For hard enamel, you will have more of a smooth, polished look. For offset printed, we print directly onto the metal and there is a epoxy dome over the top of the pin.

What is the difference between a die struck and die cast pin?

Die struck pins have the designs transferred to a front & back (optional) mold, the raw iron or brass being struck by each mold with enough force to transfer both the raised & recessed areas of the design into the pin metal. Die-Cast molds are fit together and molten zinc metal is injected into the die to create the pin.

Production Custom Shape Pins 

How long do you keep my mold for if I wish to re-order?

We will keep your mold on stock for 3 years. If you need more pins we can easily remake them for you.

What are the pins made out of?

Your pins could be made out of brass, iron, or zinc, depending on design, budget, and aesthetic preferences. When options present themselves we’ll work with you to determine your best option.
