Customized Enamel Pins
Our Custom Enamel Pins are often used with hobbyists who resell on Etsy, government entities, social clubs and collectors.
There are several processes and accessories available that are available depending on your specific designs and needs.
Soft Enamel Pins
The porcelain enamel is laid within the recessed areas below the dieline. This style is common as they can be more economical to purchase and great for less complex designs.
Soft Enamel Pins have a textured feel to them and have metal ridges.
Hard Enamel Pins
The enamel in Hard Enamel Pins is added several times to raise it higher than the soft pin version.
First they are super heated which cures the enamel to harden it, hence the name. Next they are polished to become a smooth surface so that it’s the same level as the dielines.
They are smoother to the touch, and also commonly known as Cloisonné Lapel Pins.
Die Struck Pins
To make a Die Struck Pin we would first create a custom die of your graphic. A deep impression would be made into a sheet of iron, brass or copper using this die.
Separately, cut to shape molds are used to stamp out the lapel pin design impressions in the outline of the complete design. After that it is onto plating in which several options are available noted.
You may choose to fill with enamel paint or leave as is.
In most cases we will choose the custom plating as per the design of your Enamel Pin. The most common are Gold, Silver, Black Nickel and Black Dye.
High polished are bright and shiny while the antique versions are more matte in appearance.
Black Dye | High Polish Black Nickel | Antique Tin | Antique Gold | Antique Silver | High Polish Bronze | High Polish Copper | Antique Copper | Antique Bronze | Antique Bronze | High Polish Silver | High Polish Gold
Glitter Enamel Pins
Add a bit of sparkle and bling with glitter enamel pins.
Glitter can raise visibility and can heighten the value for unique looking pins as it can add more creativity than a standard version.
There are several colours to choose from.
We would usually match the glitters in stock with your graphic design colours and you may also choose as well.
You can also add several different glitters to the same pin.
You may add different accessories and backings to your Enamel Pins to ensure that you can attach them to any article of clothing easily.
Most common backing are the | Butterfly Clutch | Military Clutch | Deluxe Clutch
Other Backings Include | Tie tack with Chain | Tie Bar | Stick Pin | Stud | Cufflink | Money Clip | Bolo Tie | Peel and Stick Adhesive | Rubber Clutch | Safety Pin | Flat Head Tie Rack | Round Head Tie Rack | Magnet | Nut & Screw | Cuff Link | Deluxe Clutch | Key Chain | Magnetic Disc | Rubber Clutch
Custom Lapel Pins
Custom Lapel Pins can be used on uniforms in places of work to showcase your corporate logo and can act as an ID to show who is an employee.
Furthermore lapel pins will show who is part of your organization and of course they can be worn as a fashion accessory.
Full Color Epoxy Pins
Sometimes clients will require gradients and complex colours that are not available with the standard enamel process.
For this we offer our full color hard epoxy surface pins which opens up a whole new level of graphic design available.
Custom Printed Backer Cards
Use a backer card if you would like to resell in your pins in a retail environment.
The rack cards can be custom printed on both sides and include a slot punch.
If you’d like to add a personal note, or your specific logo to the back then engraving would be the way to go.
We can stamp the back to personalize your specific branding.
Enamel Pins make a great gift. They can be presented at ceremonies for a job well done.
The best way to present your gift is with a velvet case which will be well received by the person getting it.
Packaging for Enamel Pins
Each Enamel Pin comes in standard individual packed poly bags to prevent scratching.
For more protection we can include a hard acrylic case which provides a nice display, for example at collectors trade shows.
Die Struck and Hard Enamel Challenge Coins are created with many of the same features and production processes as the pins.
They are often used with government institutions, military commemorative coins and medallions.
