How Are Enamel Pins Made?

There are three steps to making enamel pins.

Step one is to decide which style of enamel will work best for your design. We offer soft, hard and cloisonné pins and all three styles are considered die struck pins. Step two is to decide on the quantity you are thinking of ordering. The quantity will dictate the actual cost per piece. Step three is to decide on the size of your pin and this will also be a factor in the cost of your design. Once these three steps are decided on, a price per pin can be given. Finally, if you are creating a new pin design, a proof will be generated for your review and approval prior to production.

What is the best enamel style to use?

We are frequently asked the question “How are enamel pins made?” The answer is, we have three enamel options to choose from and each offers a different look!

  1. Soft Enamel – PMS color matching and the pricing makes these pins a perfect option.
  2. Hard Enamel – Also offer color matching and look similar to cloisonné.
  3. Cloisonné – Jewelry-like appearance and smooth to the touch like hard enamel.

What is the best size? 

Depending on the size of your logo, we will suggest the best shape an size including round, oval, square, rectangle and custom shaped pins.

 What are the best options?

The most common fastener is the post and clutch fastening. Magnets are a great option when you so not want to poke a hole in your clothes. As enamel pin maker, we can design soft and hard enamel styles with any attachment.

Still not sure which style of enamel is best? 

We can help! You can call us or email us to discuss your ideas, designs or sketches. Once we review your artwork, we will happily suggest the best style of enamel that would suit your design best.  Lapel Pins die struck with hard enamel are always a great choice!

How long will it take?

Production time varies depending on the style of customized pin you choose, but it normally takes between 2 to 3 weeks. Rush jobs can usually be accommodated for an additional charge.
