Manufacturing Process & Price Comparison Description

Cloisonne' Pins

1000  1" pins

Cloisonne' pins, also known as hard enamel pins, are the most highly prized pins by collectors.
The recessed color wells are filled by hand with finely ground glass pigments one color at a time and then fired at 1400 degrees in between each coloring to a hard, glassy finish. The pin is then ground to remove excess cloisonne' pigments and polished to create a lustrous sheen.
Colors available are limited to a select group of colors of genuine cloisonne' glass powders.


Soft Enamel Pins

1000  1" pins

Soft enamel pins have all of the aesthetic beauty of true  cloisonne' with the benefit of Pantone color matching.
The recessed color wells are filled one color at a time with an enamel. After filling all wells with enamel colors, the pin will be ground even to remove excess enamels and polished.


Photo Etched Pins

1000  1" pins

Photo etched pins are produced by etching brass base metal with a design. The recessed walls are then hand-colored with Pantone-matched soft enamel paints.
The result is a pin with raised metal borders that define the design and recessed colored areas. For a glossy look, the pins can also be finished with a clear epoxy coating referred to as an epoxy dome.


High Polished Metal Pins

1000  1" pins

These handsome lapel pins are skillfully Die-struck from solid brass or copper for lasting beauty. The pins are then polished and plated in Gold, Nickel, Black Nickel, or Copper. Optional sandblasting can be used to visually separate the background from the raised surface. No color is added to this pin.
