Confession: I've collected enamel pins for years. My love language is also gift giving so early in 2019, I married the two and came up with the idea to design an enamel pin as my business card. That way, everyone who got my card also got a gift from me! The impact was huge. Everyone I handed one to was completely in love, not just with the pin, but with my business.
If branding is how you make people feel when they interact with your business, then this is the best possible first impression! Together we will create a pin and card design that speaks directly to your ideal client. Get ready, this is going to be SO much fun!
Step one is to Skype or meet up in person to discuss your style and design. Once we have a rough draft finalized, I will send it to be rendered into a design the manufacturer can process.
Once approved, I will send it to the manufacturer. Next, we will choose elements together like what color you want the metal to be and if you want a metal or rubber back.
During the production period, I will also design a card and print a card for the pins to attach to. Each pin will come attached to the card and enclosed in a cello sleeve, ready to distribute!
Quantities and Pricing per pin is as follows:
100 Pins: $3.50
250 Pins: $2.75
500 Pins: $1.75
1,000 Pins: $1.50
•When is payment due?
There is a non-refundable deposit of 50% required to place your order. The final amount is due upon delivery. The entire process typically takes 6-8 weeks. Pre-deposit we will only come up with a rough sketch together. Once we have that, I will have the design rendered into a pin friendly version.
•Do we get any revisions on the design?
Yes! There are two revisions included. After that, there is a $10 fee per revision. Revisions count as a change to the design, not to the colors.
•What size are the pins?
1 inch on the long side. I've found that's usually a great size and works for a multitude of designs! Producing a larger pin size will incur an additional fee.
•How many colors can we have?
Four. Additional colors will incur an additional fee however pins usually look better if you stick to four colors or less. You can choose from any Pantone colors.
•Do the pins come attached to the card?
Yes! The pins will come attached to their card and safely sealed in their cello bag!
•Are there any hidden fees?
Nothing hidden, no. The pricing above includes 1 inch pins with four colors or less attached to a business card that we design together and packaged in a cello sleeve. Things that will cost extra are a larger pin, a more in depth custom card design, or any special requests such as metallic on the card, extra sections cut out of the pin (like a circle in the middle creating a donut shape) and engraving on the back of the pin.
• Tell me more about the card design
I'm definitely not a graphic designer although I do know my way around Photoshop. I will ask that you provide me with your brand colors, logo, and any fonts you want to use in your card design. We will then draft a card design for you. If you want something extremely custom like hand lettering, then I would outsource that to a design team and there would be additional cost involved. For the most part though, people are very happy with the designs we create together!
• Are there discounts on a re-order?
Yes! When you re-order a pin, you get a $50 discount!
• Can I design my own card?
Girl, be my guest! I love it when clients hand me a ready to go design! Just let me know and I'll send you the template file I use!
• I want to sell my pins in my shop. How much do enamel pins usually retail for?
I've paid between $7-$12. I usually see a median of $9.99 for a pin.

Hey. Do you mind if I tell you a story? One you might not have heard. All the elements in your body were forged many many millions of years ago in the heart of a faraway star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and kings. Until, eventually, they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe. There is only one of you. And there will never be another.
