What Are The Options For Badge Customization?

There are multiple options for badge customization, from the type of material to be used to packaging.


The most commonly used metal materials are iron, copper, and zinc alloys.


Copper and iron materials are directly stamped and formed from sheet materials, and used for products with simple molding and no obvious three-dimensionality. Zinc alloy is made for die-casting, and it is suitable for many metal products with three-dimensional shapes.

Surface treatment: 

After the shape is obtained, we proceed with the surface treatment. The surface of metal products can be electroplated, and after electroplating, the surface of the product is processed. It can be roughly divided into paint baking, enamel, printing, and glue dripping processes.


We use enamel paint as a solvent-based paint that dries hard, is opaque, and is usually a glossy finish. Enamel paint is strong, long-lasting, and extremely vibrant so it’s ideal to use for pins. 

The colors that we produce are silver, real gold, sandblasting gold, matte gold, matte silver, matte nickel black, green bronze, red bronze, and many more.


Accessories such as an attachment for enamel pins include butterfly clutch, rubber clutch, safety pin, rivet, deluxe clutch, magnet, screw, tie clip, keychain, ball chain, and cufflink.


Packaging that consists of an inner package and an outer carton. Individual packaging of enamels can be an OPP bag, bubble bag, PVC bag, imitation leather bag, paper bag, acrylic box, velvet box, velvet bag, paper box, and backing card.

Can I Pay A Part Of The Amount As A Deposit And Balance Before Delivery?

Yes. For formal orders, we accept at least a 30% deposit, then we can start with the mass production after. We’ll then send you pictures and videos of your orders after the fabrication. Before the products can be delivered to you, the remaining balance should be paid first. However, for first-time buyers with not more than $1000 in order total, we suggest paying in advance.
