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.

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?
