How soft enamel pins are made?
Soft enamel is the most common technique for making lapel pins or metal badges. The pins / metal badges pins are knocked out of a mold, then colorfull enamel fillings are poured into the stamped recesses parts of the metal. The metal raised metal parts act as a wall to hold the enamel fillings.
Then they are baked at a high temperature. The edges/raised metal parts separating the colors are galvanized/electroplated. You will feel the relief surface of the pins. The result is a pin or pin with a 3D look and vibrant colors.
Materials of lapel pins
The most common materials for making lapel pins are copper, iron, stainless steel, zinc alloy, aluminum and PVC.
- Copper: Copper is a somewhat soft material and is suitable for the manufacture of lapel pins(eg for hard enamel pins, 3D medals) with clear and fine lines.
- Iron and stainless steel are, compared to copper, hard material and more cost effective. Iron is most commonly used for soft enamel pins and stainless steel for full-color metal printed pins.
- Zinc alloy is used for pins made by an injection molding process. They are most commonly used for double-sided medals, coins and lapel pins with sharp shapes. It is cost effective with high quanitity and it gives a better 3D effect.
- Aluminum is most commonly used for the production of printed pins.
Depending on your design, budget and the desired quantity, we will determine the most suitable material for you.

If you are not sure about the size, we recommed you to print out the real size on a piece of paper and cut it out and check if the size is ok.
