Cloisonné (Hard Enamel) Lapel Pins V.S. Imitation (Soft) Hard Enamel Lapel Pins

Cloisonné lapel pins is the highest quality product, and also called hard enamel pins, which normally created by a sheet of high quality copper.The painting process used in cloisonné enamel pins starts with enamel powder or mineral ore then burned at over 800°C degrees to harden and cure the enamel. Traditional Cloisonné lapel pins can be preserved for many years, it is a symbol of achievement and frequently used by different organizations. After polishing smooth, you can rub your finger over a cloisonné lapel pin you will feel smooth and you will not feel the metal borders / ridges. Nowadays, Imitation (Soft) Hard Enamel Lapel Pins are replaced to Cloisonné pins due to similar appearance, affordable price and color choices (PMS Pantone colors is available).

Soft Enamel Pins

Soft enamel pins are the most popular pin types and offer great appearance at an affordable price, especially appropriate used for corporate pins and team trading pins. Colors are stored in syringes and applied by injection in the recessed areas and then bake the enamel hard. The enamel clings to the edges and recessed below the metal die line (that stops the enamels from mixing), meaning the paint is at a lower level than the metal borders surrounding. If you rub your finger over a soft enamel pin you will feel the raised metal lines. We also can add epoxy coating onto soft enamel to protect the enamel and make the enamel smooth and flat.

Two-Tone Die Struck Lapel Pins

One of the features of die struck pins is classic and produce only with a simple metal (without colors filling). Die struck lapel pins are made with a sheet of raw metal. Then, the mold is produced depending on your design and struck under extreme pressure. Multiple strikes are necessary required to ensure your design into the metal. Once the pin design is shaped onto the raw metal, the strip will be cut perfectly and separated into smaller strips. As the final procedure has been finished, it can be worked in many ways: plating, polishing or antiquing.
