How To Make Custom Enamel Pins

Emerald Pellot

The GRL TRBL's quick guide to making and manufacturing your own custom enamel pins.

  1. Brainstorm a few ideas you have. Enamel pins are tiny objects. Usually about 1 to 2 inches, so keep your ideas minimalist.
  2. Pick an idea and design it digitally. You might be a designer yourself or maybe you need to hire one. (Maybe you want to hire me? Shoot me an email at emerald @ grltrbl dot com.) 
  3. Research Manufacturers. I don't mean to be condescending but you know how to use Google, babe. Search "Custom Enamel Pins" and revel in your options. ProTip: Try using Alibaba if you're short on cash. Manufacturing a pin in China or India will be a lot cheaper. Although, it will take a few extra weeks to get your pin.
  4. Get A Price Quote. I recommend reaching out to at least 3 manufacturers for a price quote. Prices can vary drastically, so make you are getting the best deal. 
  5. Place Your Order. Place your order. Wait a few weeks. Enjoy wearing your art!

I even created this super easy Pinterest graphic. Please feel free to share on your socials.
