I have a very high standard when it comes to grading my pins and I like to be open and honest so that you know what you will be receiving. Below I have laid out the different grades of pins (A being the best and C being lower quality) and what quality to expect when you receive them. I always aim to have a cute and ethical business so if you have any issues at all please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
These pins are the best quality, they are perfect for pin boards and pin bags as they should have no faults on the front whatsoever.
These pins are perfect at first look but may have a slight fault when looking very closely or a fault to the back of the pin but the front is faultless.
These pins may have a dot of glitter that is the wrong colour or missing enamel. If gold/silver is missing from the front it will be slight. Missing gold/silver coating on the back may be bigger. (This applies to the glitter pins the all gold will have no missing gold)
These pins are usually bought if you wear your pins on bags or things that can get knocked about a bit. These pins will be lower quality and will usually be missing gold/silver enamel and/or have a noticeable mark.
