FAQs - Wooden Pin Badges

Are your woods kind to the environment?
Preserving our planet’s trees, woodlands and forests is imperative, which is why all the wood that we use comes from sustainable, responsibly managed woodlands.

We only ever use fast-growing species of trees like Maple, Cherry and Walnut as these are the most sustainable. These woods are removed at the rate of their growth which means that the woodlands, from which they originate will retain their supply and characters indefinitely.

How thick are your woods?
Our veneered MDF is 4mm thick.

What does each wood look like?
Our Maple wood is the lightest in colour, with a light golden appearance. Our cherry wood is next, with a slight reddish hue to the wood.

Maple and Cherry have the lightest grains and smoothest textures.

Our Walnut wood is the darkest of all of the woods and has the heaviest, deepest grain. Remember to always orders samples to see if each material will work with your designs.

Please note that wood is a natural material which means that the colour, grain, and texture of each sheet will be different from the next. This should be taken into consideration when using any of our woods.

Can you help me set up my wooden pin badge designs?
Yes! simply submit your artwork using the 'upload artwork' button or email your artwork to info@zapcreatives.com, along with any instructions, pin back location, for example, and we'll set up your acrylic pin designs and send you a digital proof for your approval.

Can my pin badges have more than one pin back?
Yes. To add more than 1 pin back, simply duplicate the pin back template layer and position them where you would like them, before merging the layers together. OR, ask us to do this for you!

How many designs can I have per order?

How do I send multiple designs using your 'Upload Artwork ' button?

How long do your wooden pin badges take to make?

What is a locking pin back?
A locking pin back is a secure way of attaching your metal pin badges to garments. The locking mechanism on these clutches ensures that your pins won't detach, unless you lift the locking mechanism.

Are the backing cards single or double sided?
Either. If you submit double sided artwork we'll print your backing cards double sided, with a different design on each side. If you only submit a single side design, we will produce your backing cards single sided.

Are your backing cards and clear display bags environmentally friendly?
Yes. Our backing cards are made from recycled card stock and our clear display bags are made from vegetable starch and are biodegradable and compostable.

How long do I have to submit my artwork?
You have up to 2 weeks from the date of your order to submit your artwork.

Can I place a re-order?
We store your artwork for 6 months, which helps us to provide you with consistent results whenever you need a re-order. Simply quote your previous order number(s) when placing your new order and we'll use the artwork that we have for you on file.
