Among all pin types, enamel pins may be the most common. It's likely that here is where your mind goes when you think of a pin.

Metal and enamel are used to create enamel pins. They can be constructed in any shape and are frequently beautifully colored. They generally work well as fashion statements on items like baseball caps, canvas tote bags, jean jackets, leather jackets, and jackets.

Enamel can also be used to make a lapel pin that looks official, so it's not all fun and games. The use of enamel pins can express personality, and show a liking for a show or a character.

The most conventional kind of enamel pins are those made of soft enamel. Soft enamel is poured between metal lines to produce soft enamel pins. A soft enamel pin must first have metal die lines plated on it. Then, enamel colors are added to the design's open spaces.

Soft enamel pins offer a traditional pin appearance. Between the enamel and lines on the pin, there are holes or dips that you can see. They enable more intricate designs with greater contrast, texture, and sheen.

Hard enamel pins are quite different from conventional soft enamel pins but nevertheless accomplish that timeless, vibrant pin aesthetic. Hard enamel pins, sometimes referred to as cloisonné pins, are made by placing each piece of colored enamel separately, melting it all together, and then baking it on top of a metal plate. The outcome is a surface that is smooth and colorful. Without the grainy feel of soft enamel pins, the enamel is polished flat across the surface of the pin.

Custom designs are brought to life on die-struck pins using raised and recessed metal. They have a bespoke coin-like overall appearance and design process. Die-struck pins are produced by making a mold, after which the pattern is imprinted directly onto the metal. Instead of adding color or enamel, the texture brings the pattern to life.

For timeless, elaborate designs that would look excellent imprinted on metal and don't need any color, die-struck pins are the best option. They're a well-liked choice for lapel pins due to their monochrome appearance, which is classy and subtle. Die-struck pins make excellent logo pins, award pins, commemorative pins, and recognition pins.

Have an idea for a custom pin with a particularly unusual shape? The best option might be a 3D mold pin. Metal is poured into a custom mold that has been formed to produce 3D mold pins. Any shape or fine feature can be totally modified to fit them.

Similar to die-struck pins, 3D mold pins are frequently manufactured entirely of metal without the addition of enamel color.

A variety of styles can be accommodated by customizing 3D mold pins. They can appear very contemporary with geometric or popular culture patterns or incredibly elite and traditional with intricate insignia. They're a very well-liked choice for lapel pins as well.

In search of a photorealistic pin? The solution is offset printed pins. These incredibly adaptable pins are made by printing a design in full color and then covering it with epoxy. They are perfect for pins that call for a ton of colors and an incredibly high level of intricacy.

Since they can make any image or piece of art come to life, offset-printed pins are a popular choice for novelty pins. They make a fantastic choice for weddings, concerts, charity events, trade exhibitions, and other special occasions. They're also important to take into account for any designer who has work that would look amazing on a pin but doesn't want to significantly change it for the new medium.

You can use a thin epoxy coating or a thick epoxy dome to protect offset printed pins. The epoxy coating that is thin gives a shiny, smooth surface.
