The Creation Process of Soft Enamel Pins

A soft enamel pin can either be die-struck or die-cast during the manufacturing process. A soft enamel pin primarily differs from a hard enamel pin due to the texture. Soft enamel pins are made by stamping the metal base to create raised and recessed areas. The enamel colors are then added to the recessed areas and cured with heat, resulting in a textured, dimensional, and slightly raised finish. These textured pins result from the enamel being filled beneath the design of the metal ridges. Each soft enamel pin is heated up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit after the color fill. Ultimately, this results in creating a high-quality custom pin that has a natural look with a textured surface. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider purchasing a soft enamel pin from MetalPromo.

Creative designs

One of the main selling points of soft enamel pins is that they are 100% customizable. These custom pins can be created in countless different shapes, sizes, and colors. Ultimately, this results in the creation of a unique enamel pin that can match your branding perfectly. The versatility is one of the main reasons that soft enamel pins are extremely popular. Another added bonus of soft enamel pins are the textured and dimensional look of the enamel pin. Soft enamel pins have a distinct textured and slightly raised surface, creating a three-dimensional effect. This dimensional appearance adds depth and visual interest to creative designs, making them more visually appealing and captivating.

For soft enamel, you will be able to feel the ridges of the metal separating the colors. For hard enamel, you will have more of a smooth, polished look. For offset printed, we print directly onto the metal and there is a epoxy dome over the top of the pin.

What is the difference between a die struck and die cast pin?

Die struck pins have the designs transferred to a front & back (optional) mold, the raw iron or brass being struck by each mold with enough force to transfer both the raised & recessed areas of the design into the pin metal. Die-Cast molds are fit together and molten zinc metal is injected into the die to create the pin.
