Why Choose Custom Hard Enamel Coins?
Hard enamel challenge coins don't work for every design, but when it's applicable, the result is a gorgeous final product. Since the metal is polished after the color is applied, some designs with too much detail aren't a great fit for hard enamel. The really small details end up getting polished away, making text hard to read or design components difficult to recognize. If you're dead-set on a hard enamel coin, our expert design team can help rework the art to get it ready for a hard enamel process. Hard enamel challenge coins have a few extra steps compared to soft enamel challenge coins so allocate a few extra days on production.
