There is a feeling in the companies that make custom craft gifts. When they receive an order for custom lapel pins, the badges they produce are not very satisfactory to customers. Some customers are not very clear about what kind of lapel pins they want, so the final result is the customer is not satisfied, and the customer service is sad, so how can we make a badge that satisfies the customer? This is a question. Today YP PROMOTION will tell you about our many years of experience in response to this problem!
As a strength custom pin badges manufacturer, YP Promotion can customize many types of enamel pin badges, such as promotional hard enamel pin badges, soft enamel pin badges.
1. Customers must understand the purpose of their custom lapel pins
Purpose and occasion of use are some of the most important factors in lapel pins production. Is it a sports badge? Is it a badge that rewards company employees, or is it a badge worn by company employees? Is it a tourist commemorative badge? Is it the school badge, or holiday badges? To buy a badge requires a clear purpose. If you don't have a concept, you need to communicate with the merchant's customer service to clarify the purpose of the badge, such as holiday badges and National Day commemorative badges.
2. Choose a custom lapel pins material is important
The metal materials for making custom acrylic pin badges mainly include gold and silver, copper, zinc alloy, stainless steel, aluminum, stainless iron, tinplate, etc., and the non-metallic materials mainly include acrylic and PVC soft glue. Generally speaking, in order to reflect the high-end attributes of badges, pure copper is generally used, and zinc alloy is used for cheaper ones. Tinplate badges are the cheapest. The choice of materials needs to be decided according to the price that customers are willing to accept. For example, some Olympic commemorative badges generally use high-end metal materials such as sterling silver, while some promotional activities require the use of cheap tinplate.
3. About the craftsmanship of custom lapel pins
The different craftsmanship of making badges is also an important factor affecting the price of badges. Uncolored badges are much cheaper than colored badges. Colored badges are mainly divided into the baking paint process and the imitation enamel process. Baking process: the surface is concave and convex, the colored area is lower than the metal area; the imitation enamel process: the surface is smooth, if If the color on the customized badge requires gradual change, you need to print the pattern on paper and paste it on the metal surface, and finally drop a layer of transparent protective resin on it. This is the printing glue process.
4. The selection of custom lapel pins accessories
In order to avoid the pinholes of the badge from penetrating the clothes and damaging the cloth of the clothes, the badges are generally adsorbed by magnets. The badge suppliers need to inlay a piece of iron on the badges to attract the magnets. The price will be higher. Other accessories are horse piercing needles and butterfly caps (gold, bright nickel), the larger sizes can use two sets of piercing needles or safety pins. For example, you can choose to make customized metal badges.
5. The packaging of custom lapel pins
The default packaging is generally a small plastic bag with a badge, and various other outer packaging can also be used, including small plastic boxes, brocade boxes, flannel boxes, etc.
6. Surface electroplating of custom lapel pins
Depending on the design, it can be plated with gold, nickel, silver, ancient bronze, ancient red copper, etc. The surface can be frosted, with a light equal effect, and an additional layer of transparent protective resin.
7. Suggestions for custom lapel pins design drawings
The more complex the design is, the more colors it has, the higher the price will be, and many custom lapel pins effects cannot be achieved in actual production. For example, if the direct spacing between the lines on the badge is less than 1mm, it will be difficult to handle. It is recommended that all badge design drawings be as simple and generous as possible. Before designing and throughout the process, it is necessary to constantly communicate with YPPROMOTION designers. It is also best to use vector graphics.
8. The thickness size of custom lapel pins
The default thickness of copper stamping is 1.2m, and various thicknesses of other materials such as zinc alloy can be produced. By understanding the key points in making these custom lapel pins, a novice customer can also make a good choice to produce a satisfactory effect.
