Why Choose Custom Hard Enamel Pins?
Hard enamel pins are die struck, overfilled with enamel (full color) and then polished down to create a surface that's smooth to the touch. Unlike soft enamel pins they do not have the feeling of being engraved or textured. Sometimes referred to as a hard enamel badge, you can place these jewelry quality pins anywhere; collar, backpack, lapel, or anywhere else. Depending on the size of the order, the enamel is either filled by hand or machine. For bulk orders over 5,000 pieces they are often filled by machine in order to achieve a fast turnaround. Customers also have the option of ordering magnetic backings for projects where the traditional nail/clutch will not do the trick. Sometimes especially small details can be tricky to see on hard enamel pins, so consider soft enamel or print on demand pins if your design is complicated. For example, if your design is a photo -- you would be better suited to order these printed pins. As a manufacturer of personalized pins for over 30 years, we are confident in our promise to be the best enamel pin maker on the internet. Enamel pins custom designs can be created by our artists with unlimited digital revisions.
