Plating Chart

Almost any lapel pin can be plated with precious metals like gold, silver, and nickel. These metals are electroplated onto a base of bronze, copper, iron, stainless steel or aluminum and polished to a shiny finish. Black nickel plating is actually a dyed version of nickel plating and is mostly used as a border for pins with color (See pin processes) Most of the plating examples below can be combined with enamel colors. The major exceptions are the antique finished pins. Also, many designs will lend themselves better to one finish or another. Please call us toll free at 888-922-9378 or use our easy QUOTE FORM.
