Custom Soft Enamel Pins

How are soft enamel lapel pins made and what is the process?

Soft enamel lapel pins are die struck from sheet metal, creating recessed areas that are then filled with vivid soft enamel color. Soft enamel gives a pin an embossed look as the recessed areas are partly filled using a syringe. The pins are then baked at 360 degrees until the enamel is cured. The raised metal areas of a design are plated in gold, silver or copper. Soft enamel pins can have a thin layer of epoxy added for a smooth surface feel.

Why choose soft enamel?

Soft enamel pins are popular because they have vivid color and they are embossed. With custom enamel pins the color can be recessed below the surface creates a textured feel. Embossed and plated with shiny or antique finish makes them really stand out. Mix and match colors and plating! We can take your logo and create a variety of color selections using the same die. Choices are always great! Soft enamel lapel pins are made by creating a die and they are struck into either copper, brass or iron. Like hard enamel pins, this pin style is color-filled almost to the surface by hand.

How is color added?

Soft enamel colors are added to the recessed areas by hand, using a syringe to fill each of the cavities three-quarters full. Soft enamel pins have an embossed feel as the metal is raised and the enamel is recessed. We can also add epoxy to the recessed areas making them smooth to the touch. As lapel pin maker, we can create samples in a variety of colors and send you samples for approval prior to having your full order made.
