Custom enamel lapel pins with transparent color

What makes transparent pins special? It’s simple: The colors—they are not like our standard colors and mimic the appearance of glass. These colors are truly transparent and become like colored glass, allowing the recessed metal to be seen through the enamel.

By adding features or textures to the recessed areas of your design and using transparent enamel can make your custom enamel pin really come to life. Imagine adding rocks to a riverbed, or using a pattern to show the ripples under the “water” of our blue transparent enamel.

Please note that the number of transparent colors is limited, and matching to PMS colors is not an option. The Monterey Company can create both a proof and actual sample transparent pin for your review prior to production, and we highly recommend that you do so.

How to Order Your Transparent Enamel Lapel Pins

There are several factors to consider when you order a soft enamel lapel pin, and we are here to help you every step of the way. Here are the answers to some commonly asked questions about ordering custom enamel pins:

Your custom design is die-struck into bronze, leaving individual, miniature reservoirs for each color that will be used on your transparent pin. We then electroplate with your chosen lapel pin finish, including silver, gold or copper, and then it is hand polished on all three sides. The soft enamel coloring is added to the recessed areas by hand, using multiple sizes of syringes to fill each of the cavities three-quarters full. The custom enamel pins are left to air dry, allowing the enamel to settle slightly, resulting in the colored areas being just below the metal surface. This creates multi-faceted detail and an embossed effect that you can feel when you run your finger over the pin’s surface.
Production time varies depending on the style of pin you choose, but it normally takes between 2 to 3 weeks. Rush jobs can be usually be accommodated for an additional charge.
Because we provide all design and artwork at no charge and have low minimum quantities. We give all of our customers the best quality and the best prices, with fast production times and top-notch customer service.
