Materials of lapel pins

The most common materials for making lapel pins are copper, iron, stainless steel, zinc alloy, aluminum and PVC.

  • Copper: Copper is a somewhat soft material and is suitable for the manufacture of lapel pins(eg for hard enamel pins, 3D medals) with clear and fine lines.
  • Iron and stainless steel are, compared to copper, hard material and more cost effective. Iron is most commonly used for soft enamel pins and stainless steel for full-color metal printed pins.
  • Zinc alloy is used for pins made by an injection molding process. They are most commonly used for double-sided medals, coins and lapel pins with sharp shapes. It is cost effective with high quanitity and it gives a better 3D effect.
  • Aluminum is most commonly used for the production of printed pins.

Depending on your design, budget and the desired quantity, we will determine the most suitable material for you.
