Condor Creations Lapel Pins


The process begins when our client creates a drawing of what they want on their adornment (pin). The artwork is then sent to our production staff for review. We always assist the client in creating the final artwork, including colors, that the factory will need to create the pieces. Condor Creations includes the basic pin design and die mold in the per piece price.

The design is reviewed by our mold and die makers at our factory. Then an original die is created, which is archived at the factory for up to 2 years so more adornments can be created for you in the future. See the illustration below for a visual of what the factory does to perfect your pieces.

STEP 1
The die is struck into the base metal and the piece is created. You can see the metal ridges which will separate each color.

STEP 2
The piece is then trimmed.

STEP 3
In the case of a lapel pin, the nail (post) is soldered onto the back.

STEP 4
The first color, yellow, is applied. The pin is then baked. All colors are powder, which is applied by hand - sometimes by hand with a magnifying glass.

STEP 5
The second color, black, is applied and then baked a second time.

STEP 6
The third color, brown, is applied and the piece is baked a third time.

STEP 7
The process is repeated for as many colors used.

STEP 8
Finally, the piece is polished, buffed, and plated.
