Types of Enamel Pins

Soft Enamel Pins

metal is higher, enamel is recessed

Soft enamel pins have a recessed areas and a hard back. The feeling of this pin has a more defined texture because of the two distinctive heights.  Notice the recessed areas in the example photos - it's almost as if you could pour paint in the crevasses. 

Features

Why Choose Soft Enamel?

Textured, Economical, Design Flexibility

 

The feeling of this pin has a more defined texture because of the two distinctive heights. This makes for a great feel and contrast – giving the pin a more approachable quality – OG if you will. The pins do wear over time because of their soft nature. Although they are not soft to the touch, they are sustainable to scratches and life over time. This is a great quality if you are looking to achieve a more indie feel. If colors and design flexibility is the end goal – you’ve found your product mi amigos!

VS.

Hard Enamel Pins

face of pin is flat & smooth

Hard enamel has a lustrous and heftier weight than soft enamel. The perceived value adds an impression of superior quality and luxury. At the end of the day - it's that shine and smooth texture that leaves a lasting impression of the elevation of the pin. Hard enamel just screams luxury and elegance. The hard enamel does not front - they take longer to make and the costs will follow. But if you are looking for top shelf & shelf life - you found your match!
