What are national guard pins?

National Guard pins are specific insignias worn by members of the United States National Guard to represent various ranks, units, achievements, and affiliations within the organization. Similar to other military branches, these pins can denote an individual's rank, specialized role, or specific awards and decorations earned during service.

Special Qualification Pins

The National Guard creates special qualification pins to recognize and honor specific skills, training, and expertise that members have achieved within their service. These pins may include Aviator Pins for qualified pilots, Medical Qualification Pins for those in medical roles, Parachutist Pins for airborne-trained personnel, and Marksmanship Pins for excellence in shooting. Other examples might encompass Combat Action Pins for engagement in direct combat, Engineer Qualification Pins for specialized engineering roles, and Military Police Pins for law enforcement duties within the National Guard. These pins not only symbolize individual mastery and commitment to excellence but also contribute to the overall identity, cohesion, and effectiveness of the unit, reflecting the diverse capabilities and specialized roles that are integral to the National Guard's mission.

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.
