Frequently Asked Questions about Pins and Buttons with The/Studio

Sourcing & Design

How closely can The/Studio replicate my logo and text?

In a word: Exactly.

For all intents and purposes, The/Studio can replicate just about any logo. Our buttons and pins are printed through a CMYK 4-color process, which allows for unlimited Pantone-match colors (PMS) and color gradients. Text sizes can also be printed as small as required — even smaller than is legible to the human eye.

Can The/Studio make custom-shaped pins or buttons?

Yes, we can make custom-shaped pins and buttons. That said, custom shapes do require us to first manufacture a custom mold for your specific shape and size. Therefore, all orders for custom-shaped buttons and pins require a special quote outside of our standard pricing structure.

Custom-shaped buttons or pins make more economical sense for large orders than for small ones. In general, the mold fee alone will cost anywhere between $500 and $1,000 USD, and the lowest order quantity typically falls above 1,000 pieces.


How do I place orders with The/Studio?

For most requests, your first step will be to contact us for a quote. Our team will take a close look at your needs, then fill you in on what it will take to make the magic happen. If you’re pretty sure you already know what you want, on the other hand, our DIY tool will walk you through the order process.

Is there a minimum order quantity?

We start orders at a minimum of ten pins. However, we’re happy to discuss pricing and quantity options for special orders – don’t hesitate to reach out!


How does The/Studio ensure quality?

At The/Studio, we always perform a final quality check after your pins have been manufactured.

Pins are checked first at the factory, then double-checked at our distribution center to ensure design fidelity and quality. If there are any issues, we will notify you and work together to address them.

Shipping & Delivery

How much does shipping cost?

The/Studio is thrilled to offer free shipping straight from the factory on every standard order, with an option for rush service if necessary.

Do you ship to APO/FPO boxes?

Yes! The/Studio proudly creates thousands of lapel pins for members of the armed forces. Kindly be advised, though, that items shipped to APO/FPO boxes make take a little longer to arrive!
