Photo etched pins are made using a combination of photography and chemical science. A photo negative is transferred onto a metal plate (in a color of your choosing) using an acid-reaction process. Each color is inserted by hand using syringe-type tools. Once all colors are filled, your photo etched pins are fired in an oven at about 450 degrees. Lastly, they are cut from the sheet and polished. A protective epoxy coating can also be applied at no additional cost if you desire.
