Through the exposure technology, the graphics will be transferred to bronze sheet, stainless steel sheet, iron sheet or aluminum sheet. Thus, the mould charge of the lapel pins is saved, then the cost of making the whole lapel pin is greatly reduced. Then what are the specific operational steps of making the photo etched lapel pins?
