Silkscreen enamel pins are a popular option for enamel pin manufacturing because they allow for vibrant, detailed designs with clean lines and solid colors. The silkscreen printing process enables precise color separation without the need for raised metal lines, making it possible to achieve complex designs clearly and accurately. These pins are often used for promotional purposes, branding, fashion accessories, or as collectibles.

The Lone Star Difference
Personalizing Your Silkscreen Pins
Make sure your pins stand out for all the right reasons by choosing from a range of lapel pin options. We have different style pins such as hard or soft enamel finishes, as well as an array of plating options and various add-ons. Whether you’re searching for colors and textures that communicate luxury, functionality, or class, we have the plating options for you.
Silkscreen is a great option, especially for small pins, but tiny text may not be a good idea. Keep this in mind when adding silkscreen to your project. Especially if your pins are 1″ or smaller. When receiving your quote, you can check for legibility issues by looking at your pin in the sizing chart. It is located in the bottom right hand side of the proof, and shows your pin at size when printed at 100%.
Silkscreen can only be printed on a raised, flat surface. That means it has to be printed on either metal or hard enamel surfaces. If you’re printing on raised metal, you can choose form any plating option available. However, if you’re printing onto a hard enamel pin, you are restricted to polished platings: gold, silver, copper and black nickel.
If you are using silkscreen pins for branding purposes, adding cardstock to your order will pair well by increasing your branding message. Silkscreen can also be combined with any of our other add-on options. Some interesting combinations can be made by screen printing on glitter, translucent and translucent enamel.
While there are a few exceptions, almost every custom trading pin out there is manufactured using dual rubber clutches. The reason for this is comfortability. Metal clutches tend to chafe. Also, the dual posts allow for stability so that the pin stays put, and doesn’t move around while being worn.

While silkscreen enamel pins can accommodate intricate designs, there are minimum manufacturing specifications that may place design restrictions on small, intricate designs. The best rule of thumb is, as the detail complexity increases, consider also increasing the size of your pin. For example, if you have a 1″ pin, but have small text that will be screen printed onto it, the text might be hard to read. To help you during the design process, we always proof your designs on a hi-resolution proof so that you can see the small detailing, and see whether your design translates well as a silkscreen pin or not.
Our minimum order quantity for silkscreen pins, and all other types of pins, is 100 pins. One thing to consider when deciding on an order quantity, is that there are significant price breaks at larger quantities such as 300, 500, 750, and 1000 order quantities. Increasing the number of pins ordered will significantly increase the overall value of your order by lowering the price you pay per pin.
