The Basics: Hard Enamel Pins

Pins and custom pins can be found everywhere. They can be found in different shapes, sizes, colors, and even different styles. With several variations to choose from, designing a custom pin can seem overwhelming. 

At the LapelPinSuperstore, we've been creating custom lapel pins of all sorts for a long time. Our experienced team can help you make the right selection and guide you through all of the different options. When creating a custom pin, you can choose between soft or hard enamel pins. There are differences in the two, but today we take a closer look at the basics of hard enamel pins. 

Hard enamel pins are the most popular for designers. They are sleek and shiny, boasting an eye-catching appeal that other pins can't quite capture. The shine on hard enamel pins comes to life by adding each color individually and allowing each hue to bake separately. Once all of the colors are added, the pin is polished, which in turn provides the shine. 

Your design will really come to life with the detail and gloss that hard enamel pins provide. Hard enamel pins also boast a smooth appearance, meaning your pin will not have a texture like a soft enamel pin. The flat surface means your hard enamel pin will be more durable since the face cannot be easily scratched. 

They are also protected by a high-gloss finish, which can withstand coming into contact with hard surfaces. This all means your stunning design will last longer with minimal damage. 

Though hard enamel pins can be durable and long-lasting, there are a few drawbacks. Hard enamel pins are entirely flat and smooth. 

If you are looking for a more rugged and texture aesthetic, soft enamel maybe your best option. The process of creating hard enamel pins can be time-consuming due to the detailed process. These are all important details when it comes to your next order. 

If you are looking for a sleek, high-gloss, and durable pin, hard enamel is a great option.
