1. Unique craftsmanship
A key reason why die struck pins are so versatile and stand out is the way we make them. We first make the steel mold according to your design or the steel mold designed for you by our designer. The mold is placed on a piece of brass or steel. The design is stamped onto the metal with pressure, embossing it and leaving recessed and raised parts. We then plate the metal in different colors and polish it to give it the look of fine jewelry. Also, when needed to create a lovely contrast between the recessed and raised parts of the metal on the pins, we sand blast the recessed areas. There is one thing to remember about molded pins: it is colorless in nature. That’s why we make many of our pins in double plated or antiqued metal. It makes the design stand out even more.

Obviously, they’re great for branding, whether it’s a business or one of its products. They can be handed out at conferences and seminars and used as part of conference or trade show giveaways.
