About our pin process, soft enamel pins start out as a shaped piece of base metal and are struck with a die to create recessed areas. These recessed areas are where the color enamel is applied. The raised areas act as the outline of your design, separating the colors from one another. Once dry, a layer of enamel paint is applied to the recessed areas, which sit lower than the raised area, creating a ridged finish. Custom soft enamel pins are cheaper to produce than hard enamel pins and offer a budget-friendly option, popular for fundraising events and promotional items.
Hard enamel pins start out as a shaped piece of base metal, and are also struck with a die to create recessed areas. Again, the recessed areas are where the color enamel is applied and the raised areas act as the outline of your design, separating the colors from one another. However, enamel paint is applied in multiple layers within the recessed areas of the pin until the paint sits level with the raised areas, resulting in the surface becoming smooth and flat. The pin is dried at a high temperature and polished for a high quality, hard wearing shiny finish.
