Whether you’re looking for a relatively small order of pins for your team of employees, or you’re looking for a bulk order of pins for resale purposes, we’ve got you covered. Our average order of pins falls in the 100 - 300 quantity. However, not every customer’s needs will be met by those numbers. To help with that, we not only offer order quantities much larger, we offer a number of price breaks to make
ordering your pins wholesale
even more appealing. If thousands of pins suit your needs better than hundreds, you’ve come to the right place.
If you’re looking to order custom pins wholesale, our Signature Pins team has everything you need to make the design process as smooth and simple as possible. We have years of experience crafting high-quality pins and filling orders of every quantity imaginable. Just follow these steps to get started, and we’ll set to work crafting a unique design for you.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned over the years spent in this industry, it’s that ordering the wrong quantity of pins is an expensive endeavour. Needing to come back at a later date and order more pins because you miscalculated on your first order will always cost more than simply ordering the correct quantity the first time.
Whether or not you need to order bulk pins is a decision you’ll have to make for yourself. We can’t tell you exactly how many pins you’ll need for your order, but we can give you more information about ordering pins wholesale, why customers tend to place these kinds of orders, and what to expect from pricing. Armed with this information, you’ll always know when getting bulk lapel pins is the best option and when a more standard order is all you need.
Pricing and Options For Bulk Custom Pins
The cost of pins is based on unit price. Think of unit price as the cost per pin. The unit price of an order changes based on a number of different factors like the type of pin ordered, pin size and certain upgrade options, but the primary factor in determining unit price is the quantity of pins in the order.
Unlike some products, the higher the quantity of pins you order, the lower the unit price will be. That shouldn’t be taken to mean you’ll spend less when ordering wholesale enamel pins. Instead, it’s just a way to see how much further your money stretches when ordering in bulk.
The easiest way to factor price into your decision to buy wholesale pins is to pay close attention to the price breaks and decide what quantities at which price point makes the most sense for your needs. Find the highest number of pins you’re likely to need and factor that quantity and unit price into your budget.
A quick note about our pricing table: While the quantities listed come in set increments, that does not mean you have to order that exact number of pins. If you think you’ll need more than 1,000 pins but don’t think you’ll need a full 2,000 pins, you can also select quantities in between those numbers. If you do decide to order 1,500 pins, the unit price will be the same as ordering 1,000 pins. Keep in mind that there’s a point at which it will always be cheaper to increase the number of pins you order to the next price break rather than trying to order 1,800 pins.
Creating a Design For a Bulk Lapel Pin Order
Coming up with a unique design is a fun and engaging process. All you need are a few ideas to get started, and our art team can have your first proof ready within 48 hours. While the artwork can be just about any size, shape and color you can imagine, before getting too far into the design process, it’s a good idea to keep in mind the design elements likely to increase unit price, and to consider what type of pin you need.
Most of the bulk custom pins ordered from us are either soft enamel lapel pins or die struck pins. This is because they have the lowest unit price of all other lapel pin types other than silkscreen pins. However, the classic look and feel of die struck and soft enamel pins is what makes them the most popular.
Hard enamel, or cloisonne pins, are beautiful, and their jewelry-quality presentation makes them an instant favorite. However, hard enamel pins require different materials and a slightly different process to create, which is why the unit price for these kinds of pins is slightly higher. It’s the unit price that keeps them from being as popular an option for wholesale custom pin orders.
When deciding on some of the other design elements of your bulk order of lapel pins, try to keep in mind the way certain upgrade options will increase the unit price of the order. Options like gemstones, cut outs and glitter or translucent enamel are great ways to make your custom pins stand out from the crowd, but they also increase unit price.
An easy way to keep the cost down on your bulk pins is to stick with the design options that won’t increase the price of your order at all. For example, so long as you stay within the size you need, the overall shape of your pins will not add a fee. Likewise, we include butterfly or rubber clutches, seven different enamel colors and multiple different plating options on every order completely free. Making a bulk order of great looking lapel pins without breaking the bank is easy when you partner with us.
