Need pins in a hurry?

Die struck artwork needs to be submitted in vector format, with no overlapping lines, and with a metal border between all colors. Very small lettering or details may need to be screened onto the art after the pins are struck. Our customer service team will let you know if this is the case.

File formats accepted

We prefer to receive art in one of the following three vector formats (in order of preference):

  •   Adobe Illustrator (any version)
  •   EPS (any version)
  •   PDF (any version)

File formats accepted - raster art

Art received as raster art will need to be redrawn as vector art and then will be prepared for die striking. If you do provide art to us in raster format, it should be in one of the following three formats:

  •   TIF
  •   JPG
  •   PSD


It is critical that you either convert all fonts (type) to outlines whenever possible, or include the fonts with your file. Not doing this will result in a delay to your order as we will request that you resubmit art with the fonts outlined or included.

Art design

When designing art for die struck pins, it's important to keep several factors in mind:

If you have lettering, it may be too small (depending on how small and detailed the font is) to be made into a pocket and filled with enamel. In these cases it is better to make the lettering raised metal, or to create a raised area where colored letters can be screen printed on afterward.

It's also critical that there is a metal border in between colors. To maintain the strength of the die while your pins are being struck, we suggest that the metal border between colors be at the very least .010" and closer to .012".

Lastly, when designing art, be sure that there are no overlapping lines. Overlapping lines will corrupt your design when the die is being machined by our equipment.

Please contact us for information to have us refine and prepare your art for die striking, including removal of overlapping lines and creation of metal borders.
