Ordering Custom Lapel Pins Is Easy

There are just a few steps to create a personalized pin design

  • The first step is to select the size you would like to create.
  • Next step is to select the enamel type you would like. Designs can use hard enamel, soft enamel, cloisonné or no enamel.
  • After you choose the size and shape for your custom lapel pins, you just need to choose the finish. Most of our products are made from bronze or iron as the base metal. Plating & finish options include shiny gold, silver, copper, bronze, pewter, antique finish and satan for a jewelry-like finish. After we review your design we can decide if we should die struck your design or cast it. Casting is a great option when it there are small cutouts.
  • Finally, a quote will be given to you and it will be based on all the options selected and the total quantity to be ordered.

Soft Enamel

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 design are plated into a mirror-like finish. A soft enamel pin is 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.

Hard Enamel

This pin style resembles cloisonne as it is smooth to the touch giving this pin type a higher perceived value. Slightly pricier than the other enamel styles due to the baking process and polishing so it is flush with the metal edge. Offered in a variety of finishes including gold or silver plating. Attachments can be added such as deluxe clutches and magnet backs. Packaging and gift boxes can be imprinted with your logo as well.

Soft Enamel vs Hard Enamel

The difference between these two types of custom lapel pins 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 types can be made with the same die/mold.

Soft Enamel vs Cloisonne

A question we receive most often concerning our many types 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 types look very different from each other as cloisonne has more of glass-like look.

Casting: 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 type is made using a mold and hot metal is poured into the mold, therefore, production time can be a bit longer than our other types.   View our Cast Pins

Printed Pins: Can Be Rushed & Made in Days!
