How are you die struck custom lapel pins looking? Shiny, right? They should, as die-struck pins have no color – they just show the metal plating!

However, we understand that sometimes, your pin just needs a little bit more. Sure, it’s great to have a piece of flair shining off of your lapel, or wherever you or your team choose to display your creations. Still, a lot of detail can get lost when you have nothing to look at but the plating. It’s suitable for some designs (such as special edition pins of another design), but sometimes, what you really need to make your pins pop is contrast.

Can we do that for you? Of course we can! All of our die struck lapel pins come with the option to be antiqued, which is exactly what it sounds like: we make your pin look older. This adds a strategic tarnish to your pin in order to capture details and add contrast and visual interest. If you have a lot of detail in your pin, this can give it an illustrative touch that will be sure to highlight and hone in on all the important features.

Antiquing also adds a level of class to your pin. If you’re getting these in a professional context, surely you expect your company to be around for the long haul, right? Think of your pins like an heirloom, passed down through generations in your company. These are rewards of the highest caliber, and your employees will be delighted to receive them.

There is a small fee for the antiquing process – just something to keep in mind. If you’d like to discuss your options for making your die struck lapel pins pop, give us a call at 1-866-604-9462, or email us at, and we’ll be happy to create a proof that dazzles you!
