Pin Grading Policy

(Special thanks to Utterlymagical and Pinkachii for letting me use their grading system)

Enamel pins are handmade items that can contain minor flaws that can occur during the production process. No pin will be perfect and every pin maker's grading standard varies. Please read below for my grading standard.

A Grades

 No major defects but may exhibit very minor imperfections that can only be seen under close inspection.

  • Stray glitter

  • Wiggly posts

  • Low-fill enamel in small areas

  • Slightly misaligned screen printing

  • Small traces of random debris (dust, fuzz, etc.)

  • Tiny bubbles in enamel, glitter or epoxy coating

  • Light scuffing, scratches, dents, enamel bleeding

  • Slight discoloration and imperfections in/on the metal plating on the sides and /or back of the pin

  • Minor enamel miscoloration

B Grades

 Noticeable minor defects, however, very close to being Standard grade pin.

  • Moving posts

  • Low-fill in large areas

  • Chipped metal plating

  • Discoloration or staining

  • Missing enamel or plating

  • Wrong enamel fill colors

  • Large dents, divots, scratches

  • Missing or badly printed screen printing

  • Excessive bubbles, scratches, dents, divots

  • Foreign materials embedded in enamel, glitter or epoxy

  • Missing posts

  • Other
