Custom Antique Lapel Pins

A beautiful accessory that has been popular for years is an antique lapel pin. To add a touch of refinement to any outfit, these customized pins can be used on caps, backpacks, jackets, and blazers. They are flexible and can be fashioned for many occasions and themes.

Lapel pins that are marketed as antiques are made to feel old or vintage. They frequently have an aged and rustic appearance because of the use of copper and brass in their construction. Anybody wishing to give their clothes a little bit of old-world charm will love these pins. Many designs, such as logos, symbols, and coats of arms, can be portrayed on antique badges. 

They are frequently used as promotional goods, particularly by businesses hoping to make a good first impression on clients. Each antique pin is coated with the antique finish of your choice, and the dark elevated sections are polished to a lighter metallic tone while the recessed areas remain dark.

Antique lapel pins can be easily customized. Selecting a design for your pin comes first. This can be any type of design you want to see on the pin, including a logo or emblem. When you’ve decided on a design, we’ll make a digital prototype of the pin for your review.

Before pins are made, this is done to make sure the design is absolutely what you desire. If you’d like, we can also add texture to the recessed area to give it a more dimensional appearance and give your custom antique lapel pins a light, medium, or dark finish.

On further approval of the digital model, production will start. The pins will be made with a mix of copper and brass and finished with the chosen finishing method. Depending on your request, these pins can be created in a variety of sizes. If you require lapel pins right away, this pin can be made to order in a hurry.

How to Make Antique label Pins?

Making antique label pins can be a fun and creative project. Here are the steps to make your own antique label pins:


  • Metal pins with a flat surface
  • Antique paper or parchment
  • Mod Podge glue
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrush
  • Clear acrylic sealer spray
  • Optional: distress ink, stamps, and other decorative elements


Cut small squares of antique paper or parchment to fit the flat surface of the metal pins.

Use the paintbrush to apply a thin layer of Mod Podge glue to the back of the paper and to the surface of the metal pin.

Carefully place the paper onto the metal pin, smoothing out any bubbles or wrinkles.

Apply another layer of Mod Podge over the top of the paper, making sure to cover the edges of the paper as well.

Let the Mod Podge dry completely.

Optional: If desired, distress the edges of the paper with distress ink to give it an aged and vintage look.

Optional: Add decorative elements such as stamps, buttons, or small charms to the surface of the pin.

Once the pin is decorated to your liking, spray a thin coat of clear acrylic sealer over the top of the pin to protect the paper and Mod Podge from wear and tear.

Allow the sealer to dry completely before using your new antique label pin.

Repeat these steps to make as many antique label pins as you’d like!

Frequently Asked Questions

How to make soft enamel lapel pins

To create soft enamel lapel pins, begin by designing your desired artwork. Once the design is ready, a mold is made by etching the design onto a metal plate. The metal base, usually brass or copper, is then cut into the desired shape and plated with finishes like gold, silver, or nickel. 

Next, each recessed area of the design is filled with enamel paint, using a small brush or syringe. Afterward, the pin is baked to cure and solidify the enamel. Once cooled, the pin undergoes a polishing process to create a smooth surface and enhance its visual appeal. 

A pin backing or fastener is attached to the back, and a thorough quality check ensures a flawless outcome. The result is a soft enamel lapel pin with vibrant colors, textured details, and a professional finish.

What are soft enamel pins?

Soft enamel pins are a type of lapel pin that features a design with recessed areas filled with colored enamel paint. The term “soft” refers to the texture of the enamel after it is baked and cooled. Soft enamel pins have a slightly raised metal outline around each colored section, creating a dimensional and textured appearance.

How to make hard enamel lapel pins

Create a mold of the design, etching it onto a metal plate or using a digital printing method. Apply enamel paint to each recessed area, ensuring it fills up to the metal surface. Allow the enamel to dry before polishing the pin to remove excess enamel and create a smooth surface.

Bake the pin to harden the enamel and achieve a glossy finish. Then, grind and buff the pin to ensure the enamel is level with the metal surface. 

Finally, attach a pin backing, such as a butterfly clutch or rubber clutch, to complete the hard enamel lapel pin. The result is a durable, high-quality pin with a polished appearance and vibrant colors.

What are your lapel pins made from?

We use a range of metals to produce our pins. The most popular kinds are made of brass, steel, and zinc. The base metal is determined by the type and form of pin.

What metal plating options do you offer for your pin?

We provide standard platings in gold, silver, and copper with every order. We also provide improved antique finishes that give your pins a worn appearance.
