How Are Soft Enamel Pins Made?

Crafting soft enamel lapel pins requires a special process.

  • The making of a soft enamel lapel pin starts with the custom making of a die in order to strike a logo onto it. This die is put into a milling machine and used to accurately cut the logo into a sheet of stamped metal, creating raised parts (known as all-metal edges) that stand out from the main surface while still being somewhat recessed.
  • The next step: colored enamel is applied to into these recessed areas, going up to 75% of the depth so that when the pin is finished it has a textured feel thanks to its unique coloring.
  • The last step in the process is to plate them. For soft enamel pins, most people prefer gold or silver but someone who likes dark colors may choose black nickel ( darker than chrome). The raised surfaces get polished to perfection and any stamped details are filled up using paint so it looks good from every angle! The three different finishes that are available for this style of lapel pin include a matte finish, an antique finish, and a shiny plating. The antique finish gives more detailing and a retro appearance which makes the smaller text readable, as well as faces standing out.

What's the difference between soft and hard enamel pins?

Soft enamel pins and hard enamel pins are like the yin and yang of enamel pin world. Soft enamel pins have that cool textured, 3D vibe with raised metal edges and dips of color, perfect for fancy designs and lots of colors. But they might get a little roughed up over time. On the flip side, hard enamel pins are all about that smooth, glossy finish, where the color is flat and flush with the metal. They're tough cookies, great for solid colors but not so hot with tiny details. Soft enamel pins are budget-friendly, while hard enamel pins are built to last. So, which one's your pin soulmate? It's all about your style and plans for rocking those pins.

If your plan is only to purchase 100 pins (as an example), then pricing will be much lower when buying 1k units. The price for 100 would cost around $2.65 vs $1.20 per 1000 quantities.
