Soft Enamel is our more popular type of custom lapel pins. The process for soft enamel pins begins with the design of your choice being stamped onto a sheet of metal, imprinting your design onto the surface of your pins. After the plating is applied to the raw metal the enamel color fill is then added to the recesses areas of the pin one color at a time. The soft enamel sets a little lower than the raised metal lines of the design giving the pin a dimensional look as well as feel. Soft enamel is a more cost efficient process that still gives each pin design a high quality professional look. These pins are great for sports teams, charitable organizations, awards and many more!
Cloisonné/Hard Enamel Lapel Pins Cloisonnè lapel pins, also known as hard enamel pins, are created using the finest materials and are highly regarded because of their unique appearance. When choosing cloisonnè for your design each pin will begin with a similar process as our soft enamel and die struck lapel pins. Then each color is individually hand-filled with a powder glass-like substance and then kiln-fired at very high temperatures. Each cloisonnè pin is hand polished giving your pins a smooth glossy appearance. Our cloisonné pins have a jewelry-like appearance with a high perceived value. No matter what the occasion, cloisonné lapel pins will make an impressive statement.
When looking for a more simple and traditional look for you custom lapel pins die struck is the best choice. The same as other style pins die struck pins begin with having your design stamped using a custom created mold. The mold creates a deep impression of your design in the metal which is then cut to the correct shape. Each pin is plated with the plating of your choice. Our polished finishes are given a sandblasted texture to the recessed areas to add contrast to your design. Our antique finish is the most popular with creating a die struck lapel pin giving each pin design a more detailed look while adding depth to your custom lapel pins. Die struck lapel pins are very popular for recreating corporate logos, anniversary pins, recognition pins, service pins and so much more.
OFFSET PRINTED LAPEL PINS ARE A BRILLIANT CHOICE IF YOU HAVE ART THAT HAS VARIOUS GRADIENTS OR EVEN IF YOU DON’T WANT TO HAVE METAL LINES ALL OVER YOUR DESIGN. THESE TYPES OF PINS ARE ACTUALLY CREATED BY FIRST PRINTING THE ART ONTO A PIECE OF PAPER BEFORE THE PAPER IS APPLIED TO A METAL PIN. THE CUSTOM LAPEL PINS ARE SET BY APPLYING A PROTECTIVE COATING, SUCH AS EPOXY. ONE OF THE MAIN BENEFITS OF OFFSET PRINTING IS THAT IT CAN BE USED FOR A HUGE RANGE OF COMPLEX DESIGNS. IT IS ALSO IDEAL FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF FULL-COLOR PRODUCTION. THIS IS BECAUSE THE COLORS THAT ARE PRINTED ARE DONE WITH CRYSTAL CLEAR CLARITY, WHERE THE VIBRANCY CAN REALLY SHINE THROUGH. IT’S ALSO MORE THAN POSSIBLE TO USE GRADUAL COLOR OR EVEN GRADIENT COLOR WHEN YOU INVEST IN OFFSET PRINTING
