Custom Lapel Pin Options
Almost any custom lapel pin can be plated with precious metals like gold, silver, brass and nickel. These metals are electroplated onto a base of bronze, copper, iron, stainless steel or aluminum and polished to a shiny finish. Black nickel plating is actually a dyed version of nickel plating and is mostly used as a border for pins with color. Most of the plating examples below can be combined with enamel colors. The major exceptions are the antique finished custom pins. Also, many designs will lend themselves better to one finish or another.
