ϟ Grading policy ϟ

1. A Grade/Standard Grade pin

Due to the handmade nature of enamel pins, it is almost impossible to make "perfect" pin. These pins are meant to be worn. Some will have minor cosmetic flaws such as:

- tiny air bubbles
- minor enamel underfill
- sightly off-set screen printed areas
- some light imperfections/ superficial scratches in the metal plating (especially on large metal areas)
- small dent on enamel/ metal
- light or very small nicks on the enamel or metal
- some minor and not noticeable dust on enamel
- imperfection on the sides or back of the pin (especially for small pins/ pins 3” or taller)
- teeny tiny missing enamel on very small area (in small cracks etc)

 ** All my pins are standard grade unless listed otherwise. The grading is based on the front of the pin. I will not be replacing pins for a single glitter, tiny scratch or dent.** 

 

2. B Grade pin

The pins are graded at least 40cm away from eyes. They are meant to be worn and enjoyed. If you are looking for perfection, I may not be able to accommodate you. Please look elsewhere.**
