What is Photo Etching?
Photo Etching allows for great detail and is ideal for highly-detailed artwork. Rather than being stamped, this process uses chemicals to engrave the design into the base metal of your product. Like many of our other products, this process also requires each color to be filled by hand. The colored product is then baked at high temperatures to solidify the enamel. Each product is also hand-polished. Finally, clear epoxy is applied to the surface to protect the enamel and to provide the pin a 3D visual illusion.
