Soft Enamel Pins

5-star-reviews

Our Most Popular Pin

Soft Enamel Lapel Pins start out as die struck pins. A custom die, based on your approved design, is struck out in a milling machine. That die is then used to stamp your design onto a sheet of iron or copper. Immediately afterwards, these stampings are cut out to the precise outline of your pin design’s unique shape.

Soft Enamel

The Go-to Choice For Custom Pins

Soft Enamel is one of our most popular options. It offers a phenomenal looking product at a slightly better value than cloisonné pins. For soft enamel pins, the metal outlines are raised above the recessed paint, giving the pin depth and texture. You can run your finger across the surface of a soft enamel pin and feel the raised metal edges above the paint filled areas. The raised edges, coupled with how the recessed areas appear in light, can make a soft enamel pin appear to have a 3D effect.

The paints we use are mixed specifically for each order, which gives us the ability to match Pantone colors and your brand standards exactly. The colorfills in the metal recesses contrast beautifully with the polished raised metal. The Soft Enamel process is one of our most popular choices for custom pins;  it offers a phenomenal looking product for a price slightly less than the cloisonnĂ© process.

Custom Enamel Pin Designs

Promotional pins are considered the starting point when it comes to custom pin designs. While simple, promotional pins are a great way to share your logo or brand with others. A more creative approach you can take is using custom pins as collector's items that showcase your artistic talent. Whether it's a simple logo or a complex art piece, a great enamel pin always starts with a striking design.

Even if you have no art or design skills, Pin Depot can help! Our staff of artists and designers have years of digital art experience, and are more than happy to assist you in the design process. If you’re not confident in creating your own enamel pin designs, you can always send us your ideas in the form of written notes or even a small sketch. We even take doodles on a napkin! You would be shocked to see how capable our team is at bringing your ideas to life!

Once you approve your design, a unique die is created. This is then stamped into metal to create the raised and recessed areas of the pin. The pin base is plated in gold, silver, or whichever pin plating you have chosen. The recessed areas are then filled with coloured enamel paint (or translucent colors, which look amazing!), separated by the raised areas made by the metal outlines in the design stage.

For Soft Enamel pins, layers of enamel paint are applied to the recessed areas. Once the enamel is baked and dried, the pin’s colors actually sit slightly lower than the raised metal areas, giving the finished pin a distinct outlined look. While less durable than cloisonné, soft enamel's low production cost and textured finish make it a great option for promotional events!

What our customer say

“PinDepot team was excellent to work with. Helped with the process every step of the way, made great suggestions and delivered in a timely fashion at a great price. Looking forward to working with them again.”

“Pins came out amazing! Just like the file provided, and they were great ppl to work with when it came to adding minor changes to the design so that way it’s exactly done the way you want it! I’ll definitely be placing another order soon!”

“Pin Depot made my beautiful pin perfectly to order. Even though I made several changes to the design, it wasn't an issue. Everyone was friendly, followed up, and produced a pin that I'm proud to distribute.”

Custom Pin Plating Examples

The metal plating is the next step in the process. For soft enamel pins, the most common plating types are gold, nickel (silver), copper, and black nickel (dark silver/black chrome). The raised metal surfaces are polished to a mirror finish, and the recessed metal areas that were stamped are filled with an enamel paint.

FAQ

If you have any further questions, Give us a call!

What is your minimum order?

Our minimum order quantity is 100. In certain situations, we can manufacture and sell orders as small as 50 pins, but there is a below-minimum fee that often applies and the unit pricing is higher than that at quantity 100. Please contact us for additional details.

How long does it take to get my pins?

Although every pin is a little different, since everything we make is 100% custom, our orders typically deliver 7-10 business days after you pay for your order. That said, if you require a quicker turnaround, we will make every effort to accommodate it.

Can I get my pins faster than the typical turnaround time?

Even though our standard turnaround times are some of the fastest in the industry, we understand that sometimes you need your pins even quicker than usual. As such, we work with all customers to understand their deadlines at the beginning of the quoting process. We can either work with our production team to shave a few days off the delivery date or we can guide you into an alternate product type that can more easily facilitate rush production.

How do I order custom lapel pins?

The ordering process is simple and can start in a number of ways. First off, feel free to give us a call or send us an email with any questions about the product or your design. You can also use our Free Quote request form. In this form, you will specify the product and quantity you are interested in. Also include any and all art or design ideas. We will reply promptly with an exact price quote and a color proof which is a digital image of what your physical product will look like.
