Custom soft enamel pins have consistently been the most popular pin type for more than a decade. They allow for a great deal of flexibility in design and the bold featuring of numerous colors. We include the first 7 paint colors at no charge!
Soft enamel pins are instantly recognizable by the raised metal borders and recessed enamel paint fills. This contrast creates visual depth and a striking design. This feature is one of the few things that all soft enamel lapel pins have in common. They come in all shapes and sizes and can vary from small and simple to 7" wide and elaborate with crazy shapes and upgrades like cutouts, 3D molds, rhinestones, translucent paint, LED blinkers, glitter, and more.
Custom soft enamel pin uses vary as much as their appearances do. We regularly make collectible enamel pins for corporate uniforms, career milestones, and employee recognition. We also make custom enamel pins for brand, product line, new movie, book, and graphic novel launches. Artists (both musical and graphic) also favor custom soft enamel pins to showcase their logos and artwork.
Because soft enamel pins are die struck and feature raised metal borders separating all their enamel colorfills, they are the best pin type for designs that have defined and clearly separated colors. You can see samples here. For intricate designs involving gradients or fine details, photographic lapel pins or silk screen lapel pins would work best. The best of both worlds is the slightly more expensive cloisonne lapel pin. It features the clean color delineation of soft enamel pins but gives you the option to add fine details to the surface of the custom pin with silkscreens due to its smooth surface.
The plating selection for your custom enamel pins is extremely important. It can change the whole look of the pin and take it from classic Americana to modern and edgy. Most custom corporate pins feature our traditional metallic platings of gold, silver, or copper. For pin designs with light paint colors or lots of text, we recommend going with the antique versions of these metallic platings to enhance legibility. Modern designs frequently utilized our colored metal finishes though. The most popular is our black metal finish, which makes for a striking lapel pin that features very bold lines. This lapel pin finish is very reminiscent of striking comic book pen and ink artwork.
