You picked the right spot! Before we get into the thick of it, take a look at some pins we've helped create!
Soft enamel pins are by far the most popular pins to be order. They are the most cost effective method of producing pins. The advantage to these pins is that they have depth. Soft enamel pins have recessed areas around every color in order to prevent them from mixing with one another. This give them that rigid and bumpy feel to them but there's nothing wrong with that!
Hard enamel pins have a shiny, flat and smooth finish to them. The enamel is added to the pin several times and then polished flat. This achieves a high quality aesthetic. The cost increases but that comes with a higher quality product.
We can also make die struck and silk screened pins.

We can make pins in any size. Keep in mind a bigger pin will cost more. The most popular size is 1". This is the perfect size if you are unsure of how pin you want your pin to be.
We can make pins with various metal types including Polished Gold, Polished Nickel, Black Nickel, Antique Gold, Antique Nickel, Antique Copper, Antique Bronze, Black Metal
The minimum order quantity for pins is 50 pieces but keep in mind there isn't much of a price jump if you order 100 pins, which is the best "bang for your buck" deal.
An example of the most requested pin quote is for:
• Soft Enamel Pin
• 4 Colors
• 100 pieces
Before shipping, taxes or any other applicable charges, the estimated cost is around $175. Every pin will vary in price due to design complexity.
Please be sure to send in artwork suitable for soft or hard enamel pins.
This means all colors must be surrounded by a black colored stroke. See example here.
This will not only help you visually what your pin will look like, but it will make the ordering process much easier. The black strokes will be your raised walls in the pin to prevent the colors from mixing with one another.
What do I have to know to make pins?
Not much! It's actually a pretty easy process! Simply send us your artwork, along with some examples of pins you really like and Warrior Pins will do the rest of the grunt work!
What if I only have a drawing or sketch?
We would suggest using a service like Fivver, or finding someone on Instagram to help you turn your sketch into a vectorized image.
How long will it take for my pins to arrive?
Once ordered, Warrior Pins will arrange our production facility to begin creating your pins. Completion of pins varies between 15-21 days or 2-3 weeks.
Can I reorder pins I've made with you in the past?
If you've made pins with Warrior Pins, you can certainly reorder pins at a wicked good discount!
If you've made pins with another company or manufacturer, you will have to pay for the mold fee, which is factored into the pin price.
Here's a example of the different stages your pin design will go through. Once you have completed your artwork, you will submit it to Warrior Pins for a quote. At this time, you will also receive artwork proof. This is an important step. Double check your design looks great and the pantone colors match your desired colors. Once that has been approved, it's just a waiting game until your pins arrive!
