Why You Should Go for Die Struck Pins

Die struck pins are stunning in elegance. Their simplicity in design is basically what makes these pins stand out the most. Although they’re devoid of color, this style is one of the most eye-catching of any of the custom pin types.

Die struck pins are made by creating a die of your design. The die is then pressed into a thin piece of metal, such as iron, copper or brass, creating the raised and recessed aspects of the design. Each piece is then electroplated with silver or gold to give it the distinctive luster and shine. Various other processes exist to create contrast in the design such as antique or sandblast. These effects help highlight the raised and recessed areas.

Because of the all metallic finish die struck pins are sure to gleam under any light source. With such high polished designs, a die-struck pin will stand out beautifully and elegantly on your hat, backpack, suit, jacket, or dress.

The best part of die struck pins is the pricing. Even with a gold or silver finish die struck pins are on the low end of the price spectrum. You get the best of both worlds in a perceived jewelry quality piece at a costume jewelry price.

Die-struck pins might not give you the option of mixing and matching colors as in enamel pins yet they are the best option if you want to bring out a truly classic design and a look that stands out. It is the distinct and subtle appearance that makes them perfect for a high end experience.

With their sophisticated styling and elegant designs, die-struck pins make perfect gifts in honoring academic achievements, corporate gifts, employee recognition programs, and in showing team pride in all sorts of various occasions and events.
