Work On The Design With Our Designers
With MetalPromo, you can work with our professional designers to create a one-of-a-kind design for your lapel pins. Our team of designers can help you create a simple design or a highly detailed design for your lapel pins.
Lapel pin designs can be customized in a variety of ways. Some customization options include:
- custom shapes
- border designs
- metal finishes
- pin enhancements
If you have any ideas or inspirations for lapel pin designs, definitely bring them to the call. Our designers can help you create a custom design from scratch or they can help you modify an existing design.
Choose a Size and Shape
With custom lapel pins, you can choose almost any shape and size. The most popular styles are round, square, rectangle, and diamond. You can also use geometric shapes like triangles or octagons.
Round lapel pins are the most common and most traditional style of lapel pins. Square shapes are also popular and are often used for organizations with a modern style. Diamond lapel pins are a unique style and are often used for organizations with a vintage or retro style.
Choose a Metal Finish
Custom lapel pins can be designed with any combination of metal finishes and border designs. Adding a new metal finish is called plating, and it is possible to plate pins in a variety of options. Brass, gold, and black nickle are common choices.
Choose Colors for Soft Enamel or Hard Enamel
If you are ordering custom lapel pins, there is a good chance that you will be ordering a soft enamel pin. Soft enamel lapel pins are created with a process that coats a metal base with colored enamel paint.
After the pin is completed, it is baked at high heat to remove the excess lacquer. This creates a beautiful, brilliant, and colorful pin. Alternatively, you can have a hard enamel pin made using a similar process.
Hard enamel is a process for creating custom lapel pins that overfills the enamel on the pin, then has the excess polished away. This makes the enamel and metal outlines from the design even in height, giving the pin a harder, more uniform surface.
Hard enamel pins often have brighter, more vibrant finishes. In many cases, they are considered an upgrade over soft enamel pins.
Review and Approve the Design Proof
After your design is complete, our designers will send you a proof to approve. You will receive both a digital proof and a printed proof of your design. You will want to make sure that the design is exactly what you want, so make sure that you thoroughly review all of the details.
If there is any text on your design, make sure you check that it is correct. Make sure that all of the colors are accurate as well. If there are any details that are incorrect, just let us know, we will gladly make the necessary changes.
Once your design proof is approved, it is ready for production in our factory. Lapel pins take about two to four weeks to create and to be delivered.
Finalize Your Order
The last step in the process is to finalize your order. Since we have a completed design, we can give you an accurate quote for your order. Once you review the quote and make the payment, we can begin manufacturing your pins.
They are made in one of our factories and every pin goes through an extensive quality control process. That way, every pin that you receive is in perfect condition. That’s the value you can expect from MetalPromo every time, high-quality pins that match your design in a relatively short time frame.
