Photo Etched lapel pins are unique in the fact that the image on the lapel pin is taken directly from your photo negative and imprinted on the pin’s metal surface. Imagine being able to take a picture of just about anything and transform that picture into a custom lapel pin.

Your design is transferred from your photograph onto the surface of the metal. To ensure the image lasts, your design is then etched into the lapel pin base using an acid-reaction process. This allows the design to “set” in the lapel pin and remain attractive for a longer period of time. All the acids and other impurities are carefully rinsed off.

The indentations in your lapel pins are then filled with the enamel colors. Colors are overlaid by hand, one at a time, using different sized syringes. This process allows the colors to get into the crevices of the lapel pin design. The sheet of metal is then fired at 450°F for 12 to 15 minutes in order to “bake” the color onto your lapel pins. The lapel pins are then cut out of the sheet according to your custom design.

The raised sections on the lapel pins (those without color) are then plated to a shiny gold finish. An optional epoxy protective coating can then be applied to your lapel pins to protect the color enamels from fading or cracking over time if you wish.

The versatility, durability, and creativity of photo etched lapel pins opens the doors for you to create exactly the image you’re looking for. Simply snap a photo of the object you’d like to appear on your photo etched lapel pins and contact our professional design team. We’ll be glad to get a proof of your lapel pins back to you within mere hours.
