While it is possible to have a physical sample made before full production, we do not believe that is necessary. Our standard policy is to design a digital proof for you to approve before we go in to production. The proof lists all the details for the pin, and includes an enlarged view of the design, as well as one to scale. We stand behind our work 100% and guarantee that the final product will match the art proof.
If you would still like to have a physical sample made first, we can provide that for you. There is a fee, which is partially refundable upon approval of the sample for bulk production. Since we guarantee the product will look exactly like the proof we prepare, the sample fee is not refundable if a bulk order is not placed. Additional lead time is required to produce the sample and then the actual production. Contact us for more specific details.
