Compare Metal Finishes for Custom Pins
All metal pins are plated with different metal colors. The metal colors are important as it produces the detail of a pin besides the paint that is applied. In the pin world, metal color is called plating. Once a pin has been painted, baked, sanded, and had an attachment put on the back it is ready to be plated. The pin is dipped into a plating material for a smooth and durable finish.
There are many plating options to make your custom metal pins beautiful. Gold, silver, copper, brass, bronze. In addition, each of these options can be antiqued to help enhance or high light the details in the pin. Antique makes the crevices darker and dulls the finish. One other feature is sandblast background. A grainy finish is applied to the recessed metal and the raised metal is polished to give contrast in the details.
In addition, PinProsPlus offer a two-tone plating option to give a very distinct look. Typically this is gold and silver. Silver and gold are the standard plating options for our pins but we have many metal colors available.
