Hard Enamel Pins VS Soft Enamel Pins

Often used for corporate pins, event pins, convention pins and fraternity or sorority pins, hard enamel pins are long lasting and durable with a very high quality appearance. Soft enamel pins are frequently used for sports team trading pins, and are a great choice for world series or softball nationals pins.

The difference between the two styles is one of the most frequent questions we get.

  • Colors are applied by hand with a small brush or needle.
  • Thin metal lines separate each color.
  • Heated to a high temperature and then polished, creating a bright, smooth, hard enamel finish.
  • Intense polishing process make hard enamel pins 5%-10% thinner than identical soft enamel pins.
  • Color matching using PMS (Pantone) colors. many choices, but still limiting.
  • One of the highest quality, most durable pins available.
Soft Enamel Pin

Soft Enamel Pins

  • Made from die-struck iron metal by default and electroplated.
  • Color matching using PMS (Pantone) colors. many choices, but still limiting.
  • Epoxy coating is not included by default. This allows you to feel design's texture on the pin's surface.
  • Optional epoxy coating is free if desired, simply ask when ordering.
  • Approximately 1.2mm thick by default on a 1.50" pin. 50% heavier than photoscreen.
  • Colors are applied mostly by hand, leading to longer production times.
  • Small variations and minor surface imperfections are normal and characterstic of handcrafted work.
