The first thing different about photoetched pins is that the base metal is brass instead of copper or iron. A photoetched pin is applied soft enamel by hand. Soft Enamel can be mixed to create hundreds of colors corresponding to the Pantone chart.

An additional silkscreen print layer can be applied for small details if necessary. Epoxy coating can applied to protect the enamel colors from fading and cracking (please specify in your order if you require epoxy coating).

Custom photoetched lapel pins

Recommended for those very detailed designs. Your artwork is transfered onto the metal surface and washed away with an acid reaction, this leaves the indentation that will then be filled with soft enamel.

Best Results:
- Bold designs are recommended to avoid coloring caused by lines and figures that are too thin or too small. Enamel coloring requires a surrounding metal space to ensure good quality painting. Therefore, it is necessary to allow for a blank metal rim (0.3mm minimum).

Plating: Gold / Antique gold / Silver / Antique Silver / Nickel / Black Nickel / Antique Nickel / Copper / Antique Copper / Brass / Antique Brass

How is this pin made    
An image of the design is transferred from a photographic negative onto the metal surface through a sensitization process
An acid reaction process is then carried out to form the design indentation
Acids and impurities are then washed off
Soft enamel is carefully inserted by hand, one color at a time, using different sized syringes
To prevent defects, a high degree of skill is required in order to keep each color and the correct amount of enamel in the proper area.
The metal piece is baked at approximately 450F for 12 to15 minutes
After the metal board has cooled, the surface is finished by stoning with a carborundum stone until all excess color has been worn away.
Outline Cutting
Cut the metal board in rows
Cut individual designs in custom outlines ( min. metal outline thickness: 0.8mm )
Solder attachment onto the back of each piece
Plating now can be processed. The quality of plating varies with the length of time the metal is soaked in the plating liquid.
Epoxy Coating
Clear epoxy is then applied to the surface to protect the enamel from color fading and cracking. (Epoxy coating is optional and provided according to customer's requirements.)
