Tip2: Draw your lines in metallic colors – Your drawing’s lines are going to be the raised metal part of the enamel pin. Using metallic ink for the lines will let you see how your design translates as a pin. It will also allow you to check if your color choice actually works.
Tip3: Remove gaps or complicated outer shape – Holes inside your design and fancy edges means more work for the pin maker. This means they will charge you a higher per pin. If you plan on selling your work, this is something you want to avoid.
Tip4: Send your design as a vector. When you are done with your design, you will have to send it to a pin maker. The best format you can choose is a vector.
Step2: Using a digital pen, go over your outlines. Make sure that it is clean. No wobbling or broken lines.
Step3: Export your work to Corel Draw or Illustrator once you are happy with your outline. Create a Live Trace of all the lines that you drew.
What this does is it creates a vector trace of the outlines. It can now be resized and edited with ease. Make sure to remove extra points and smoothen or sharpen the areas that need it.
Step4: For fonts, make sure to trace its outline. Your pin maker may not have the particular font that you used. This will make it easier for them to make your pin.
Step5: Use the Pantone finder to find the right color codes for the ones that you used. This will ensure that the pin maker knows the right color to choose for your design. You might need to buy the color guides, but you can always check your local library.
Cloisonné (hard enamel) – This type of pin is usually the most professional-looking. There is a smooth surface all throughout. That means the metal outlines and the colored enamel are all levels.
The pin maker starts by stamping the design onto a copper or brass base material. This creates the cavities for the color and the outline. The cavities are then filled with glass enamel. The layering of enamel and the buffing gives it its smooth and flat surface.
Soft enamel – while it is very similar to hard enamel pins, this one is a cheaper alternative. The pin maker gets a plate of iron and stamps the design on that.
Instead of using glass enamel, the colors are painted on. This is the reason why soft enamel pins have a three-dimensional feel. If you want it to resemble a hard enamel pin, an epoxy cover will do the job.
1)Die-struck – This is for pins that do not require any color. It is basically just the base material with a stamped-on design.
2)Silkscreen or printed – This style of pins is made by cutting the iron metal base to the shape desired. The design is then printed or silkscreened onto the surface. A clear epoxy layer is then applied to seal the image. This is perfect for designs that are too intricate for enamel printing.
3)Photo-etched – Instead of stamping, the design is etched on the surface of the copper plate. Pin makers use a chemical process to do this. Afterward, a clear epoxy is applied to keep the design from fading.
4)Offset printing – If your design requires gradient or color bleeds, offset printing is the only method to use. The image is printed onto the copper metal base. It is then sealed using an epoxy coating.
Once you have decided on these details, you can start looking for a pin maker. Below are the steps that you can take to make the hunting pain-free.
