What Pin Styles Are The Most Popular?

hard enamel pin: leaves and beeries design

Hard Enamel

This style resembles cloisonne as it is smooth to the touch giving this style a higher perceived value. Slightly pricier than soft enamel due to the of baking the hard enamel and polishing the enamel so it is flush with the metal edge. Offered in a variety of finishes including gold or silver plating. Upgraded attachments can be added such as, deluxe clutches and magnet backs. Special packaging on this style can include gift boxes

Soft Enamel

What are soft enamel lapel pins? Die Struck into a base metal followed by adding enamel to the recessed areas. Dies can be either 2D or 3D and all die-struck enamel styles are plated into a mirror-like finish. Soft enamel pins are die struck in either brass, bronze or copper and can be plated in an antique finish or a shiny gold, silver, copper or black plating. What makes soft enamel different is the enamel is lower than the raised metal areas around it, creating a textured effect.  View our soft enamel designs

soft enamel vs hard enamel lapel pins

Soft Enamel vs Hard Enamel

The difference between these two styles can easily be defined by the height of the enamel. In addition, soft enamel is recessed and hard enamel is on the same surface as the surrounding metal. Hard enamel is made to resemble cloisonne as it's smooth to the touch and the metal and enamel are on the same surface. Both styles can be made with the same die/mold.

Soft Enamel vs Cloisonne

A question we receive most often concerning custom lapel pins is, "what's the difference between soft enamel & cloisonne" The short answer is soft enamel has recessed enamel, while cloisonne is polished smooth. Similarly, these two styles look very different from each other as cloisonne has more of glass-like look.

3d cast pin designs

Cast Pins: Great for all your small details

Cast pins are one of the best options whenever a design needs to be three-dimensional or has tiny cut-outs. Cast designs can be made using pewter or zinc and can include enamel.  Plating options include all of our antique finishes as well as our shiny gold, silver, and copper plating. This style is made using a mold and hot metal is poured into the mold, therefore, production time can be a bit longer than our other styles.   View our Cast Style
