Iron or Copper Stamped with Soft Enamel process:
Molding the metal surface to form the design.
2. Outline Cutting
The lapel pins are die struck from a copper surface. A die is
created to imprint your design into the metal. The outline of the
pin and any cut-outs are then cut with another mold.
Attachment is welded on to the back of each piece
The pins are individually hand polished until smooth and shiny.
Now plating can be processed with various plating.
The lapel pins are individually filled by hand with enamel colors
and baked to 80-160 degrees for proper color distribution within
each lapel pin design.
Excess color is then wiped off from the metal surface.
The pins are placed in a low heat kiln in order to seal in the
colors and achieve superb color separation.
A clear protective epoxy coating (epoxy dome) can then be applied
to the surface of your pins to protect the image from fading or
peeling off or getting scratched.
Then each pin is inspected to ensure only the highest quality is
individually packaged and send for final inspection.
Iron or Copper Stamped with Soft Enamel pins are rugged, versatile,
and affordable. Soft Enamel is one of our most popular choices for
custom pins, it offers a great looking product for a price slightly
less than the cloisonné process.
