How long does it take to create an enamel pin?

So….How long does it take to make my enamel pins?

I often have clients getting in touch at the last minute wanting to order some enamel pin badges ready for tomorrow please! And whilst we always endeavour to pull out all the stops that one is simply unachievable when it comes down to manufacturing enamel pins. So with that in mind I thought I would give you a little low down on timings for our enamel badges.

From start to finish the production time for your enamel pin badges takes approximately 3-4 working weeks depending on the number of pins that you need. Add on a couple of days for UK delivery too.

Manufacturing isn’t simply turning the machine on and waiting for the magic to happen, the design process is one of the most important parts too. Agreeing on a compatible design is a large part of creating the final product. Also, your badge will need a custom mould depending on what shape it is. If your pin is round this makes the process a lot easier but if you want a pin in the style of your logo, creating the moulds might add on extra time to the whole process, should it be an obscure shape for example. Also, creating the right colour for your design might take a little more effort. It’s a lot easier to pick a colour on photoshop for your logo than to create an enamel paint in that colour!

Another question we often get asked is are any pins faster to make than others? Yes, soft enamel pins are usually faster to make than hard enamel ones because of the manufacturing process they go through. Soft enamel pins don’t need as many finishing touches as the hard enamel ones do so make them cheaper and quicker to manufacture.

So, from start to finish we can produce your pins generally within a month from the sign off of your badge compatible visual which we will always provide. Just don’t leave it until the last minute if you would like for a special event or time!

Any questions give us a shout and we will happily talk you through it!  Contact us
