Custom Lapel Pins

California natives Petra Frenkel and Gordon Byun are passionate about pickles. Gordon was raised on a steady diet of kimchi in a traditional Korean family. Helping his mom make the spice mixture and prepare the vegetables, he learned from the best. Petra blames her pickle obsession on her parents who migrated to SoCal from New York. Dissatisfied with the L.A. pickle ecosystem, her parents made kosher pickles at home. Petra became a bit of a pickle-snob, but thinks that everyone should eat delicious things, so it’s really more of an egalitarian

Epola lapel pins, or semi-Cloisonné lapel pins, brings jewelry-like quality at a lower price. The pin is die struck and filled with a color resin. The resin is PMS color coded and can be matched closely with specific colors. Epola pins retain the glossy look of Cloisonné pins, but without the cost.

Die Struck

 

Die struck pins start as a sheet of metal in the color of your choice, which is then cut using a custom die that is created for your design. This leaves recessed areas in the metal that can be sandblasted, antiqued, or filled with color enamel to bring out the details. The finished pin can then be polished to bring a nice shine to the metal.

Die Cast

 

Die cast pins are perfect if you are looking for raised detail in your pin. These pins are made to look like a 3D cutout of the art. Not only can you finish the pins with either a polished or antiqued look, you can add enamels to highlight features of the pin.

Photo Etched

 

Looking for a pin with your company logo on it? Photo etched pins can do that. By printing directly on the pin, photo etched pins give you more flexibility than die cast and die struck pins. These pins are finished with an epoxy coating to protect the art on the pin.
