Enamel Pin Grading Guidelines


The best quality that we are able to offer. 
Because each pin is handmade, you might see very small imperfections such as:

 slight variable textures
 small bumps on the back of the pin
 small scratches / scuffs on metal / enamel
 slight irregularities on line weight distribution

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR SOFT ENAMEL W/ EPOXY PINS: due to the style of these pins, this has higher chances of having more errors such as bubbling and stray dust in the epoxy due to the handmade nature of enamel pins that will be considered “Standard Grade”. We will try to give you the best quality possible with the least visible defects, but please keep this in mind with your purchase of pins made in the soft enamel with epoxy style


More noticeable defects can show on the pin such as:

 missing enamel
 underfill in large areas
 dust or markings on the enamel
 color discoloration / mismatching colors
 significant and irregular line weight distribution
 more than one pore or bubble on the front of the pin

Each pin is inspected upon arrival as well as prior to shipping out to customers, but please keep in mind when ordering pins we cannot guarantee collector/perfect grade as enamel pins are handmade products.
