Manufacturing Process

Product Add-ons

This page is designed to explain our product add-ons. Since our basic product is a flat metal or pvc "plate," adding a post makes it a lapel pin; adding a ribbon turns it into a medal, and so on... Check out many of the possibilities below

Posts
Add a post (a.k.a. nail) to a metal plate and you have a lapel pin. Pins and badge sizes of .5" to 1" come with one 8mm, 10mm, or 15mm post. More can be added, ...it's up to you.

Clutches
If you have a post, you need a clutch. We have a wide variety of clutches, including gold and silver metal butterfly clutches; black rubber; and gold and silver jewelry clutches (with or without chain and bar).

Sandblasting
Sandblasting compliments pieces with large areas of polished metal. A piece made entirely from polished metal can be difficult to read because the polished recessed and raised areas blend into one another; however, adding sand blasting to recessed areas creates great contrast (see sample left).

Cut Outs
Cutouts creates negative space within a piece. We can cut out any shape or sized area. It is an inexpensive add-on, but can create a very dynamic product.

Adhesive

Blinkies
Blinkies are battery operated led lights. They can be turned on and off easily via a button on the back. Although it adds about 3/8" to the depth of the piece, it makes an eye-catching pin that will be the talk of your event.
