Want to make your individual enamel pins? It feels daunting at first. I acquire enamel pins and at all times questioned how onerous it could be to design my very own collection. I kinda sorta researched however it felt overwhelming due to the amount and pricing, the scale, and so forth. Another thought was what may I deliver to the house that hasn’t already been completed.
Okay, all of that’s fairly foolish “lack mindset” considering. Recently I did extra analysis and located Wizard Pins as a supply to have my very own pins made. I put it on my to-do record for my enterprise, and guess what?
Within a month Wizard Pins reached out to me a few collab!
Talk about manifesting, proper?
They requested me to come back of up designs utilizing their platform and undergo the whole course of. Here’s the way it all went down.
About comfortable enamel pins
First factor – know the distinction between the categories on enamel pins. Soft enamel has outlines which are stuffed in with yup – enamel. You can kinda see the recessed space the place the colour is. Hard enamel pins even have a top level view however the floor is totally easy. There actually isn’t an enormous pricing distinction (onerous enamel is a little more) so it’s actually your desire. I went with comfortable enamel!
Both pins are a pleasant sturdy weight with sharp pins and rubber backings.

Time to design!
I used Procreate on my Ipad Pro. Wizard Pins makes use of Pantone colours, in order you design, preserve that in thoughts. I didn’t – I simply used the net colours. As you may see, I positively used far more than eight colours on every design. Excitement took over and I went a lil loopy on the colour story. But all of it labored out fantastic as a result of when you add your design, they’ll mock up a proof displaying precisely how your pin will look. Then if you wish to make modifications, you may.
It’s positively higher to order in amount, particularly when you plan to promote them for revenue. I believe the 100 quantity may be very inexpensive at $3.69 a chunk. I normally spend anyplace from $10-15 on pins, so at this wholesale worth you may simply have sufficient house for wholesale and retail and nonetheless make a revenue. These additionally work nice for promo objects, giveaways, presents and extra. NOTE: If you order, use my coupon code for 10% off: CRAFTY10

This is de facto essential since you need to make sure that your pins garner consideration after they’re made!
Remember that your design shall be shrunk down – and there shall be a silver define round every factor. Any super-duper particulars is not going to present up and even make your design look a bit cluttered. For instance on my angel pin, I want I’d have eliminated the hearts on the cheeks, it kinda makes it too busy. Then once more, that’s simply me being tremendous choosy. And I want I’d have checked the pores and skin tone as a result of it got here out a bit lighter than I designed. But that’s my fault as a result of I obtained the proof and signed off with out double checking. I used to be simply so excited!!
Overall, I’m actually, actually proud of these pins! I’m positively going to design and order extra for my Crafty Chica enterprise.
