Cloisonné Pins


Our Most Classy Pin

Cloisonné Lapel Pins start out as die struck pins. A custom die, based on your approved design, is struck out in a milling machine. That die is then used to stamp your design onto a sheet of iron or copper. Immediately afterwards, these stampings are cut out to the precise outline of your pin design’s unique shape.

Cloisonné Pins

Cloisonné pins are one of the best ways for you to leave a lasting impression with your clients, customers, employees or fans. Cloisonné gives your logo or art design a gorgeous high gloss finish, allowing small details and lettering to stand out. Cloisonné (or hard enamel) pins are the top choice for our customers because they offer a smoother and shinier appearance than both die struck and soft enamel. Although they are similar, cloisonné stands out from soft enamel because of its glossy finish and smooth, high polished metal areas.

Custom hard enamel pins work great as merchandise, as a giveaway item, or simply as an attention getter for your brand. They are hand polished to an intense reflective finish that communicates high quality and a sense of style. Their stylish look is what gives Cloisonné lapel pins their ‘High value corporate’ aesthetic. Cloisonné pins can also function as years of service awards for employees. Paired with presentation boxes or custom card stock, they make excellent commemorative gifts that your employees can wear with pride.

How are Cloisonné Pins Made?

Promotional pins are considered the starting point when it comes to custom pin designs. While simple, promotional pins are a great way to share your logo or brand with others. A more creative approach you can take is using custom pins as collector's items that showcase your artistic talent. Whether it's a simple logo or a complex art piece, a great enamel pin always starts with a striking design.

Even if you have no art or design skills, Pin Depot can help! Our staff of artists and designers have years of digital art experience, and are more than happy to assist you in the design process. If you’re not confident in creating your own enamel pin designs, you can always send us your ideas in the form of written notes or even a small sketch. We even take doodles on a napkin! You would be shocked to see how capable our team is at bringing your ideas to life!

We Conceptualize Your Ideas

Our art team will get right to work crafting an original design from your ideas, and you'll have your first free proof ready and in your inbox within 48 hours.

You Approve, We Produce

We offer unlimited revisions until you are completely satisfied with the design, materials, size, and colors. Once you approve, production begins.

Once you approve your design, a unique mold is created. The mold is then used to strike sheets of brass, creating deep impressions of your design details, while leaving raised metal outlines. These outlines hold each enamel color fill in place. The recessed areas are filled using a colored hard enamel powder, which completely covers the raised metal outlines. The pins are then fired at high temperature in a kiln, in order to melt the hard enamel powder. From there, the pins are buffed and polished so that the enamel is level with the raised metal. This ensures that the raised metals are mirror finished, and that the surface of the pin is smooth to the touch.

Custom Pin Plating Examples

The metal plating is the next step in the process. For soft enamel pins, the most common plating types are gold, nickel (silver), copper, and black nickel (dark silver/black chrome). The raised metal surfaces are polished to a mirror finish, and the recessed metal areas that were stamped are filled with an enamel paint.

What is your minimum order?

Our minimum order quantity is 100. In certain situations, we can manufacture and sell orders as small as 50 pins, but there is a below-minimum fee that often applies and the unit pricing is higher than that at quantity 100. Please contact us for additional details.

How long does it take to get my pins?

Although every pin is a little different, since everything we make is 100% custom, our orders typically deliver 7-10 business days after you pay for your order. That said, if you require a quicker turnaround, we will make every effort to accommodate it.

Can I get my pins faster than the typical turnaround time?

Even though our standard turnaround times are some of the fastest in the industry, we understand that sometimes you need your pins even quicker than usual. As such, we work with all customers to understand their deadlines at the beginning of the quoting process. We can either work with our production team to shave a few days off the delivery date or we can guide you into an alternate product type that can more easily facilitate rush production.

How many colors can I use in my design?

Each lapel pin design allows you to feature up to 7 different color fills at no additional charge. If your design is complex and requires more than 7 different colors, we will happily add them. Each additional color only costs an extra $0.10 per pin.
