History Of The Secret Service Lapel Pin

The Secret Service Lapel Pin is an important accessory worn by members of the United States Secret Service. Secret Service lapel pins have a rich history dating back to the early days of the Secret Service.

The Secret Service was established in 1865 as a branch of the Treasury Department to fight counterfeiting. The first Secret Service agents were primarily tasked with investigating and apprehending individuals involved in impersonation. Over time, however, the Secret Service’s role expanded to include the protection of the president, vice president and other government officials.

The use of Secret Service lapel pins by the Secret Service is believed to have begun in the early 1900’s. However, the exact origin of the Secret Service lapel pin is unclear. Some sources indicate that the Secret Service lapel pin was originally introduced as a way for agents to identify each other, while others believe it was a way of distinguishing Secret Service agents from other law enforcement personnel.

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?
