Military pins come in many forms. Some are created as a gift to honor the service and sacrifice of our nation’s heroes. Others are made to commemorate the reunion of a team of veterans, or to mark a special event like a military ball. No matter where you find them,
custom military lapel pins
are a symbol of achievement and are meant to be worn with pride. If you’re looking for a special way to honor the soldiers in your life, we’re here to help.
Whether it’s a commemorative pin designed to honor the veterans in your life, or the eagle, globe and anchor pin awarded to Marines as they complete basic training, military pins are a symbol of accomplishment and sacrifice.
Unit emblems, military crests, and the equipment soldiers operate are all popular design cues, but we can create just about any type of pin you can imagine.
At the end of boot camp in the Marine Corps, recruits are awarded an eagle, globe and anchor badge and addressed as a Marine for the first time. Earning a place among the Corps is an incredible achievement, and the pins are cherished as a testament to a recruit’s struggle, sacrifice and their right to be called a Marine.
Not all military pins are as significant an award as the ones given to graduating Marines, but each design is special. Service members wear their pins with pride because each one is earned through commitment and service. For anyone looking to honor the soldiers and veterans in their life, custom pins are perfect for showing gratitude and celebrating their incredible achievements.
Military Enamel Pin Designs
Coming up with a design is the best part of ordering a set of military pins. Custom artwork will often incorporate unit emblems or references to service branches, but that only scratches the surface of all the possibilities for design. Options like cut outs, cut to shape artwork, dual plating and full 3D designs are all used to recreate important military badge designs with incredible detail.
High polish gold and silver plating are excellent options for anyone looking to create a lifelike military badge design, but we also have antique plating options and colored metal options that help any style of military pin stand out from the crowd. Military hat pins and lapel pins come in just about every shape and size you can imagine, so just send us your ideas, and we’ll set to work.
Depending on what style of artwork you’re looking for, our team may suggest certain types of pins that are best suited for your ideas. Die struck pins are perfect for cut to shape designs in the form of aircraft, unit crests, or specific military badges because of their pure metal appearance. For customers looking for a splash of color, one of our military enamel pins is the best way to go.
Soft enamel pins are well known for their traditional appearance and layered texture. Enamel paint is added to the recessed portion of the artwork while the raised parts of the design prevent the colors from mixing. This gives the artwork a sense of depth and a classic appearance.
Cloisonne is another popular option for military enamel pins. Instead of the colors laying in the recessed portions of the design, the recessed areas of a cloisonne pin are filled to the brim with a special resin. Once the pins are kiln fired so the colored resin can set in place, they’re put aside to cool and then polished by hand to get a smooth, glossy finish.
If you’re not sure what type of pin is best for your design, just let us know. Our art team is happy to put together multiple free proofs and offer suggestions based on our years of experience as one of the best custom pin makers online.
