Lapel Pin Types - Die Struck Pins

what are die struck pins?

Die struck pins are a unique type of lapel pin that offers a classic and elegant appearance. These pins are made by using a metal die to strike a design into a blank piece of metal, such as brass or copper. The process involves creating a custom die that reflects the desired design, and then repeatedly striking the metal blank until the design is deeply embedded into the surface. Once imprinted, the metal is cut into the specific shape of the design, and it can be plated with various finishes like gold or silver for a polished look. Often used for awards, recognition, or formal occasions, die struck pins are valued for their timeless appeal and the ability to capture fine details without the need for color, emphasizing instead the texture and contour of the design.

If you are still undecided, here are just a couple reasons why you should consider buying die struck pins from MetalPromo.

how are die struck pins made?

The first step in creating a custom metal pin is to discuss your various design choices. Choosing the right design is essential to crafting a top-quality die struck pin that will meet and exceed your expectations. Once the design is finished, the next step is to create your custom design with a unique die that is struck onto a particular type of metal. Typically, the metal is either copper, brass, or iron but other metals are also available. These metals are highly durable and will create a long-lasting die struck lapel pin. A specialized trimming tool will cut out each lapel pin, and texturing is applied to create a unique finish. Polishing will also create a noticeable contrast, and a final quality control check is the last step to ensure that everything meets our top-quality standards for die struck pins.

Classic Appearance

Die struck pins do not use any colored enamel, which results in a more classic or traditional appearance. The classic look of these custom metal pins is a great way to recognize long-tenured employees and reward them for many years of service. Of course, you can also use a cloisonne pin as a marketing tool, enabling you to increase the brand of your company and reach new clients.

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.
