A design is struck or stamped from copper or brass and the depressions are hand filled with a powdered glass compound. The lapel pin is then fired in a kiln at around 1600F. Once each color has gone through this process the pin is polished and coated with either gold or silver. Cloisonn lapel pins have the look and feel of jewelry. Classy, shiny and make a great impression.
How Are Soft Enamel Lapel Pins Made?
- A die is cut to the image of your design (repeat orders save on this step!!).
- First, your image is stamped on the sheet of copper. Copper is a softer metal and allows a sharper image.
- Second, the pins are cut out to the outline of the design shape.
- Plating is done next: for these types of pins the most common is gold on gold, but other metal plating such as silver, antique bronze, and black oxidize are available.
- The raised metal surfaces are then highly polished to a luster finish
- while recessed areas are filled with colored paint, or can be textured with a sandblasted look (matte).
- All items are inspected twice before delivery: once at the factory, and again by our sales staff before shipping.
