Hard enamel lapel pins are prestigious, high quality pins. They are different than soft enamel because there are no “raised metal” areas on the surface of the pins. The hard enamel and the surrounding metal areas are flush with each other, thus creating a smooth surface.

Your company may have special rules governing the use of its logo or trademark. These standards must stay consistent for your custom corporate pins. If your custom corporate pins must adhere to brand identity standards, then you should order offset printed lapel pins. Offset printed lapel pins use the four-color-process method of printing, or CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black). If you have specific pantone colors, our artists use the closest CMYK mix of colors to match them.

Offset printed custom corporate pins represent your company.

Offset printed custom corporate pins are shaped to match your brand. We make a mold in a shape that you want. Then we stamp your custom corporate pins from metal. It’s like a cookie cutter. After the metal is shaped, we print your logo onto the pin. Then we apply an epoxy to the surface. This makes it shiny. The epoxy protects the printed surface.

Stand out with custom corporate pins at trade shows!

Offset printed lapel pins usually arrive about 1 week after you order. During the summer, it may take longer because demand is much higher. If you are concerned about the deadline, you should order our Rush Pins instead.

Reproduce small details on custom corporate pins.

Offset printing allows us to print very fine details. These details may be thin lines or small text. We can also print gradients and shadows. These features are typically seen in web 2.0 style logos, like ours. Offset printing allows for a great deal of flexibility in your corporate pin design. You can be creative.

Hard Enamel Trading Pins

hard enamel trading pinsHard enamel trading pins give you and your baseball organization the kind of recognition it deserves. Hard enamel is frequently used for the highest quality lapel pins, and seldom do we see them as trading pins. Trading pins are most commonly seen as soft enamel, which is easier for production and has become industry standard. Hard enamel pins are typically used for jewelry quality lapel pins, whereas soft enamel is considered a bit more rugged, which fits baseball trading pins well. It is also more difficult to get high detail into a hard enamel lapel pin. Sometimes of course we have to think outside the box. When West Garden Grove Little League needed baseball trading pins they asked for a higher level of manufacturing. They needed hard enamel trading pins that look prestigious and last forever.

Both types of baseball trading pins display exquisite quality manufacturing. The only difference is presentation. Soft enamel is typically used to get a bigger bang for your buck in trading pins.

A hard enamel lapel pin is more commonly seen on a tuxedo or well fitted suit. A soft enamel pins are commonly seen on lanyards or baseball hats. Hard enamel creates a more classic look by raising the enamel flush with the metal. Both pins are made to the highest quality standards but offer different styles for different presentations.
