Plating Options

Quality Lapel Pins offers many different plating options for you to choose from. If you have questions about which types of platings can be used with certain types of pins, please contact us and we will be happy to help you decide which plating and finish is right for your pins.

High Polished Platings

Our high polished platings are the most common option for lapel pins. The pins are electroplated with your choice of gold, nickel, copper, or black nickel, then buffed to a mirror shine. This plating can be used with soft enamel pins, cloisonne pins, and pins without enamel.

Antique Platings

Our antique metal platings are perfect for those who want a less flashy look to their pins. The finish subdues the metal so it isn't as shiny and gives it a patina. Antique metal pins have a unique rustic look that is sure to impress.

Matte and Textured Finishes

Matte finish is applied to high polished pins to make them have a frosted matte look and make them less shiny. The matte finish can either be applied to specific areas of the pin or to the entire pin.
Textured finish is built into the mold, giving the metal a textured or gritty appearance. The texturing can only be applied to recessed areas in pins that are not filled with enamel.

Painted Metal Colors

Looking for something very uncommon to set your pin apart from the rest? We are happy to offer painted metal colors. This is a feature you will only find at Quality Lapel Pins. The pin is first struck and plated with nickel like a normal pin, but then it is painted with a high quality enamel paint. The paint is very durable, but this unique finish means you will have to take special care of your pins in order to keep them looking their absolute best.

Rainbow Plating

We are very excited to offer a new type of plating: Rainbow Plating! This plating shows off a spectrum of colors that are sure to attract attention. To achieve this marvellous metal finish, the pins are plated with nickel and zapped with high voltage. Since the process colorizes each pin with slight variations, all of the pins in your order will be a little different from each other. Rainbow plating can be applied to die struck pins, either with or without soft enamel color fill.
