Die Casting

Lapel pins are often far more than just a fashion accessory - they can be the result of complex artisanal processes that involve melting and molding metals into custom shapes. Die-casting is one such method which involves pouring molten zinc or pewter alloy through an intricately carved mold, producing three-dimensional pieces perfect for lapels everywhere!

Hard vs Soft Enamel Pins?

Struggling to decide between hard and soft enamel? Our team can help you find the perfect fit for your budget - no matter which one you choose. Soft enamel offers recessed color, while hard has a smooth finish with all elements on the same level. Both come in gold, silver, copper, or antique finishes that are easy to match any logo - plus both styles can be plated in any of our standard finishes. We have found that using antique finishes looks best on soft enamel pins that have 3D sculpted areas.

soft vs hard enamel pins

Soft Enamel Pins

When making custom soft enamel pins, colors are filled about 75% of recessed regions so that when you run your finger across its surface, a finished product will feel like grooves in these areas. We also offer glow-in-the-dark options and black-nickel plating. We also have glitter enamel options, and ones that look like antique pins. As we mentioned earlier, the sky is the limit!

Hard Enamel Pins

Hard enamel pins, also known as epola, are perfect for those who want jewelry-quality designs to last. They have a smooth finish and frequently can be mistaken as cloisonne due to the similarities in technique between these two pin styles. 

Cloisonne Pins

Cloisonne is an ancient art form that has been used to craft jewelry and metalwork since at least 200 BCE. A combination of copper, enameled sand, and intense heat are employed in the complex process: intricate designs crafted with ridges into a piece of copper which then get filled in with finely ground colored powdered glass from an enamel chart; these picturesque gems are fired off rapidly while exposed directly to 1,700 degrees Fahrenheit! The product is exquisite-- graceful curves depict dazzling colors encased within its hardened surface made complete after engraving or electroplating as part of a final patina. In essence, cloisonne pins embody the beauty created through time-honoured traditions for generations, both past & present alike.

What Are The Top 5 Questions To Ask When Ordering?

enamel lapel pins

The process of making custom enamel pins is an intricate one, starting with deciding on the desired design and working with a design team to refine it. The size and shape of the pins must also be determined—often ranging from 3/4" to 1 1/4," though there are no strict rules. Furthermore, you must choose the type of enamel used for the finish; gold or silver metal plating as well as hard enamel are options. To create the desired bodies for these pin badges, an impressive 1200 degrees Fahrenheit heat needs to be applied over 15 minutes. The process is completed through polishing and assembly attachments. No matter which size, shape or finish you choose, making your own unique enamel pin guaranteed to deliver satisfaction is not beyond reach!

Selecting The Best Style: Monterey Company brings years of lapel pin manufacturing experience to the table and has created over one million custom pins! Our team can work with you to design a unique, professional-quality product that complements your needs. Jewelry-level hard enameling as well as more affordable soft enamel options are available; plus we offer full customization for any shape or size. When it comes to creating pins with an unbeatable level of quality and craftsmanship, Monterey is second to none!

Sizes: Making the perfect lapel pin can be a tricky process, especially when it comes to making sure the size is just right. While most of the designs we create range from 0.5” to 1.25”, custom sizes up to 3" are available if needed. It all depends on what you're making, how much detail or text you want to include in your design, and personal style preferences for the person wearing it. Our team offers advice and guidance throughout the design process to help you make sure you end up with the perfect lapel pin for any situation: the right shape, size, and finish for your individual project, artwork, and budget. Common fasteners include post-and-clutch but magnet attachments are also an option. Reach out to us today for more information!

The most common fastener is the post-and-clutch fastening. We also offer magnet attachments if you prefer a fastener that does not pierce clothing.

Personalize your style with custom soft enamel pins, available in various styles and finishes with up to 6 colors per pin. Ordering in bulk? Iron pins offer the most cost-effective option, with prices starting at $300-$400 for a quantity of 100 pieces with or without epoxy. Hard Enamel will add about 10% to the pricing.

Put your ideas in motion with our skilled and experienced team of designers! We'll take the guesswork out by providing a design proof for you to review, so there are no surprises. We won't start production until we get your stamp of approval on the spelling, full-color, and size details.
