Soft Acrylic Vs. Soft Enamel Lapel Pins

Soft Acrylic is a term we use to describe the raised surface and/or raised metal areas of a custom UV Printed lapel pin.

To the naked eye, there is no difference between Soft Enamel and Soft Acrylic pins. While the quality is great, Soft Acrylic is an American made lead-free type of imitation jewelry. It cannot compare to real jewelry or Cloisonne pins made with precious metals and authentic gemstones. Soft Acrylic is often used for promotional campaigns under tight deadlines.

We make this distinction between "Soft Enamel" and "Soft Acrylic" because of our namesake, "Pins Fast". Pins Fast does not offer Soft Enamel because it should never be "rushed" for any reason. If you have enough time for quality production of soft enamel pins, please ask for a free design from our partner site Lapel Pin Design.

Soft Acrylic is always Made in the USA under strict standards of safety and they are always lead free.

Soft Enamel Pins

Soft Enamel is a popular industry term to describe a heavy metal pin that is die struck and hand painted with enamel colors. Soft Enamel pins should never be rushed because they are hand-made works of art. In order to clarify that Soft Enamel pins cannot be made "fast", we offer soft enamel pins on our partner site Lapel Pin Design. Typical turnaround time is 7 to 10 days for Soft Enamel; the industry standard, but there are caveats. You can read more about soft enamel pins at lapelpindesign.com.

Soft Acrylic Lapel Pins Metal Surfaces

Soft Acrylic lapel pins can be hand-crafted in one of the following metals:

  • Silver (brushed steel) microsurface metal
  • Gold (brass) microsurface metal

Soft Acrylic always comes with a layer of gloss which also gives it "raised edges" or a "raised surface". The gloss can be added under the layer of ink which causes ink in some areas to be slightly raised above the other areas of the design. By printing metal styles without any primer, a very decent imitation die struck effect is achieved. The microsurface metal underneath the printed metal styles gives the faux raised metal effect more shine and realism.

For customers under tight deadlines who cannot get Soft Enamel, "Soft Acrylic" is a great, lead-free alternative and it can be made only 1 business day!
