Lupo Enamel Pin Badges - £5

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of doing a run of enamel pin badges based on the VW Lupo GTI. I wondered what peoples thoughts to this would be and also what people think of the artwork I have mocked up. I have recently done something similar with an MX5 (see picture and link https://www.etsy.com...namel-pin-badge ), so wondered if this would be of interest to any members on here.

These are high quality pin badges perfect to pin on to jackets, rucksacks or just something to add to the collection!

The details would be as follows:

  • Measures 30mm
  • Plated in black
  • Coloured with enamel (Colour options will include: Soft blue, reflex blue, silver, red and black).
  • Metal clasp rear fitting
  • £5 delivered 2nd class (1st class delivery £1 extra)

The proportions of the vehicle are as close to the real thing as possible, with exception to the wheels which have been made slightly bigger in order to include as much detail as possible when scaled down to size.

All items would include a backing card, will be carefully packaged and sent via 2nd class Royal Mail (1st class delivery option would also be available).Lupo GTI Pin Design With Dimensions.jpg

If I could get ~20 people interested/committed, it would probably give me the numbers to do a batch of all colours listed.

Three for me please. I'l cut the pins off and glue them to the key. Or on top of a swizzel stick. So so many uses.... :)

I could make them without the pin backing mate. 

If a few more show interest, I’ll look at getting them into production 👍🏻

How about with a hole in in the front wheel? It'd be a tiny teeny weeny key ring. Now that would be class.

I've already done forum keyrings, so was looking at doing something else to be honest with you!

We like the pin idea. Any possibility of a pair in bright green shipped to Canada?

We're all still keen.... how many are you up to so far and how many do you need to make it worth while for you? 

The lupo is slowly achieving cult status and there'll be loads of demand for these nice little pins. And in Germany and Spain...

I think I'd need to get the numbers to 20 genuine people to push on with them and get them into manufacture. I did Club Lupo keyrings a couple of years ago and they generated a lot more interest (I think because there was more active people on the forum).

The MX5 pins that I've already made have sold quite well. Financially, none of this is really worth doing, but I thought they would make a good keepsake/Christmas gift etc for people, so was happy to do them!

Colours I was thinking are...

Soft blue, reflex blue, silver, red and black. I could make a green one, but it would be an additional cost for a one-off. Green just doesn't sell, as I've still got a few green (and yellow) keyrings leftover.

The problem starts when people say 'I'll deffo have one', so you get them made up and all of a sudden you hear nothing 😂

For people genuinely interested who would be happy to pay when we reach the magic 20, put your name and quantity required below. Also include the colour you require (choose from soft blue, reflex blue, silver, red and black).

EG - Tom, 1x soft blue, 1x red

Leaving the pin clasp off is totally fine.

Custom colours not so much. We would have to keep buying different shades of enamel which would bring the price up.

You, @Rich and @kt_lou_gti is 7 so far. We really would need 20+ to be honest, so let's see if it happens...

I can post you a small pack of interesting colour enamelling powder. My guess is you only need half a teaspoon of the stuff? Do you use an enamelling oven or a microwave mini kiln thing?
