Part of the narrowing down process is selecting the color that will look the best with the type of lapel pin you’d like. We offer four very unique styles with different price points to meet any budget.

Soft Enamel Lapel Pins

Have you ever wondered what the process of a pin-maker is? Let us tell you! This style is made by die striking the metal and adding recessed color. This intricate process fills the recessed areas of the metal with color.  This is the number one style used by DIY pin makers.

Hard Enamel Pins

Made using almost the same process as soft enamel. The only difference between the two styles is the timing when the metal and color are laid.

This style has a higher perceived value and was originally created to resemble the cloisonné pin style. The number one reason to consider this style is the surface is smooth to the touch and the hard surface makes this style more resistant to scratches.

Cloisonne Pins

This process was originally used to make small items such as jewelry, weapons, and decorations. By the 14th century, China got ahold of this technique and started to make larger items such as decorative bowls and small statues.

At The Monterey Company, we use the same age-old process to make our cloisonné pins. We make our cloisonné pins from colored sand. The sand is melted at a temperature of 1700 degrees to create a jewelry-like appearance. A cloisonné pin feels like glass to the touch.

Cloisonné pins are very collectible and have a very high perceived value. Find out more about the artistic technique of cloisonné pins or request a free quote for cloisonné pins. As an enamel pin maker, we can make orders as small as 50 pieces.

Transparent Enamel Pins

Pins with transparent color are a unique type of lapel pin. The transparent coloring is a clear material that shows the recessed metal through the color.

The price for transparent pins is the same price other styles. Although there are a limited amount of color options available for transparent pins. This style is perfect for DIY pin makers to make their design stand out.
