Then, we plate the metal in different colors before polishing it so that it has the look of fine jewelry. In addition, when a lovely contrast is wanted between the recessed and raised sections of the metal on the pin, we sandblast the recessed areas.One thing to remember about a die struck pin: It’s essentially colorless. As a result, we make many pins with dual plated or antiqued metals. It makes the design stand out more.
