Pin Grading System

As enamel pins are handmade goods, the quality of each pin may vary and will rarely appear 100% flawless. We strive to deliver a quality pin to each customer, and spend hours carefully inspecting each one. The happiness of our customers is important and we will always do our best to deliver the best pins available! :) 

Standard Pins

Standard grade pins are the highest quality of pin that we offer. These pins are free of major defects but *may* exhibit minor imperfections such as:

  • Superficial tiny bubble in enamel or epoxy coating
  • Faint superficial scratches to metal/enamel surfaces
  • Superficial paint drops or spreading into other enamel
  • Slightly misaligned screenprinting
If there are any major issues with your pin for some reason, please contact us (with photos) at

    Seconds Pins

    These pins may have one or multiple defects of the types listed above, as well as:

    • Oxidation of the metal
    • Lower fills in more noticeable areas
    • Missing enamel in one or more spots
    • Noticeable smudges or bubbles in the enamel

    Seconds pins are great for those who would like an adorable pin at a discounted cost!
