What is a die cast pin?

Die Cast or Die Struck Lapel pins are high quality lapel pins with a classic look. They are an ideal choice for recognition type of awards, corporate promotional events or anyone looking for a clean, elegant pin.

Die struck lapel pins are created by striking a die of your design into the metal material. The pins are then plated with your choice of plating finish and polished. The die casting process is used to produce 3 Dimensional lapel pins and 2 Dimensional pins with very fine detail. This type of pin provides a topographical contour that allows you to show the entire shape of your design. The die casting process involves pouring molten metal into a mold of your design. The process for creating 3D pins takes a little longer as the die process is more complex. Finally, once the pins have hardened, the plating takes place next.
