Pin Grading Policy


How enamel pins are graded and quality checked.

We implement a grading system on our enamel pins to provide the best quality products for our customers. However, due to the pin manufacturing being a hand made process, pins are not perfect and we do our best to grade the pins as fairly as possible. 

We use a two tier grading system: Grade A and Grade B

A Grade: no discount

Has little to no flaws. Includes a backing card with artwork (unless noted otherwise). 

B Grade: (seconds) minor discount

Has minor flaws that include (but are not limited to) the following: 

  • Over enamel fill
  • Under enamel fill
  • Dents
  • Scratches
  • Bubbles

There are no returns or exchanges on B Grade pins.

Some designs will not have B Grade options for purchase.

Please note every maker grades pins according to their own standards.
