Custom Hard Enamel Pins
Hard enamel pins are made by striking your logo into a base metal. They are smooth to the touch and are color filled and baked until cured. The raised areas and the color are on the same level and then hand polished smooth and then plated in gold, silver or copper.

What is hard enamel?
Considered to be a smooth-surfaced pin, hard enamel lapel pins use a resin paste to achieve an authentic, hard, glass-like appearance. After the base metal has been struck, plated and polished, overfilled into the reservoirs above the level of the metal design lines. They are sanded down until the colors are even with the surface, creating a smooth, elegant jewelry-like finish.

What makes them the highest quality? This style was originally created to resemble cloisonne, a 2000-year-old enameling process. The surface a hard enamel pin feels smooth to the touch and feels like glass.
