Soft Enamel Lapel Pins

Soft Enamel Lapel Pins

Soft Enamel is one of our most popular options. It offers a phenomenal looking product at a slightly better value than cloisonné pins. For soft enamel pins, the metal outlines are raised above the recessed paint, giving the pin depth and texture. You can run your finger across the surface of a soft enamel pin and feel the raised metal edges above the paint filled areas. The raised edges, coupled with how the recessed areas appear in light, can make a soft enamel pin appear to have a 3D effect.

The paints we use are mixed specifically for each order, which gives us the ability to match Pantone colors and your brand standards exactly. The color fills in the metal recesses contrast beautifully with the polished raised metal. The Soft Enamel process is one of our most popular choices for custom pins; it offers a phenomenal looking product for a price slightly less than the cloisonné process.

When to Order Wholesale Custom Lapel Pins

If there’s one thing we’ve learned over the years spent in this industry, it’s that ordering the wrong quantity of lapel pins is an expensive endeavour. Needing to come back at a later date and order more lapel pins because you miscalculated on your first order will always cost more than simply ordering the correct quantity the first time.

Whether or not you need to order bulk lapel pins is a decision you’ll have to make for yourself. We can’t tell you exactly how many lapel pins you’ll need for your order, but we can give you more information about ordering lapel pins wholesale, why customers tend to place these kinds of orders, and what to expect from pricing. Armed with this information, you’ll always know when getting bulk lapel pins is the best option and when a more standard order is all you need.

Pricing and Options For Bulk Custom Lapel Pins

The cost of lapel pins is based on unit price. Think of unit price as the cost per lapel pin. The unit price of an order changes based on a number of different factors like the type of lapel pin ordered, lapel pin size and certain upgrade options, but the primary factor in determining unit price is the quantity of lapel pins in the order.

Unlike some products, the higher the quantity of lapel pins you order, the lower the unit price will be. That shouldn’t be taken to mean you’ll spend less when ordering wholesale enamel pins. Instead, it’s just a way to see how much further your money stretches when ordering in bulk.

The easiest way to factor price into your decision to buy wholesale lapel pins is to pay close attention to the price breaks and decide what quantities at which price point makes the most sense for your needs. Find the highest number of lapel pins you’re likely to need and factor that quantity and unit price into your budget.

A quick note about our pricing table: While the quantities listed come in set increments, that does not mean you have to order that exact number of lapel pins. If you think you’ll need more than 1,000 lapel pins but don’t think you’ll need a full 2,000 lapel pins, you can also select quantities in between those numbers. If you do decide to order 1,500 lapel pins, the unit price will be the same as ordering 1,000 lapel pins. Keep in mind that there’s a point at which it will always be cheaper to increase the number of lapel pins you order to the next price break rather than trying to order 1,800 lapel pins.

Creating a Design For a Bulk Lapel Pin Order

Coming up with a unique design is a fun and engaging process. All you need are a few ideas to get started, and our art team can have your first proof ready within 48 hours. While the artwork can be just about any size, shape and color you can imagine, before getting too far into the design process, it’s a good idea to keep in mind the design elements likely to increase unit price, and to consider what type of pin you need.

Most of the bulk custom lapel pins ordered from us are either soft enamel lapel pins or die struck pins. This is because they have the lowest unit price of all other lapel pin types other than silkscreen pins. However, the classic look and feel of die struck and soft enamel pins is what makes them the most popular.

Hard enamel, or cloisonne pins, are beautiful, and their jewelry-quality presentation makes them an instant favorite. However, hard enamel pins require different materials and a slightly different process to create, which is why the unit price for these kinds of lapel pins is slightly higher. It’s the unit price that keeps them from being as popular an option for wholesale custom lapel pin orders.

When deciding on some of the other design elements of your bulk order of lapel pins, try to keep in mind the way certain upgrade options will increase the unit price of the order. Options like gemstones, cut outs and glitter or translucent enamel are great ways to make your custom lapel pins stand out from the crowd, but they also increase unit price.

An easy way to keep the cost down on your bulk pins is to stick with the design options that won’t increase the price of your order at all. For example, so long as you stay within the size you need, the overall shape of your pins will not add a fee. Likewise, we include butterfly or rubber clutches, seven different enamel colors and multiple different plating options on every order completely free. Making a bulk order of great looking lapel pins without breaking the bank is easy when you partner with us.

Why make enamel pins?

Many people have purchased enamel pins at some point in their lives. They are an easy-to-use fashion accessory that looks great anywhere, such as on clothes and backpacks, adding to our sense of style. Enamel pins are considered small and affordable pieces of art and can be used to express emotion, reward employees, acknowledge team members, decorate backpacks, wedding accessories, and more. Its use-value far outweighs its cost of customization. So a lot of people fell in love with this little piece of art.

Today, people wear pins to express themselves and advertise what they like. They can put pins anywhere: backpacks, hats, shirts, pants. Enamel pins have become a fashion statement. Enamel pins are a good addition to selling clothes and stickers. And enamel's other cost is very low, but it can be packaged to sell at a good price, considerable profit. And easy to manufacture and transport can express various elements on the pin.

Type of enamel pin

Our enamel pins are available in many types. Let's take a look at some of the most common types, as follows:

Soft enamel is the most popular choice for making enamel pins and a favorite for beginners. It can usually have more color choices and can offer richer, more vibrant colors. Using soft enamel also allows you to get more texture detail in your design, including borders and edges that you can actually feel. But it's easy to scratch.

Hard enamel is more durable and strong than soft enamel, but it also costs more and has more restrictions on coloring. Hard enamel pins, by contrast, do not convey color and edge very vividly. In addition, hard enamel pins are coated with clear resin at the top to create a textured, smooth surface. If you use pins frequently, hard enamel pins are recommended because they are more durable.

3D mold pins typically have a more elegant, classic look and are made of zinc or tin. When you have a complex design for a pin that requires a cut or an imperfect shape, you will need to use a die-cast pin. This type of pin looks more textured.

Die-casting pins are made by pressing metal against steel molds to make pins. Tapping on the metal creates a concave area into which you can add color options. Some manufacturers also sandblast sunken areas to create a two-tone metallic look. This type of pin is also very textured, relatively speaking, the price will be higher. If your size and design are good enough, your finished product will be a very good work of art.

Why are enamel pins so expensive?

Enamel pins are expensive because you have to make a mold to make enamel pins.No matter how many enamel pins you customize, you will need a custom enamel pin mold. And, since molds are the most expensive parts, most people order small quantities, so the price per stitch may seem high, but that's because they spend money to make molds and spread the cost over a few stitches. So when evaluating why enamel pins are so expensive, keep mold costs in mind and buy in bulk to reduce unit prices.

Choosing a Plating

The plating selection for your custom enamel pins is extremely important. It can change the whole look of the pin and take it from classic to modern and edgy. Most custom corporate pins feature our traditional metallic plating of gold, silver, or copper. For pin designs with light paint colors or lots of text, we recommend going with the antique versions of these metallic plating to enhance legibility. Modern designs frequently utilized our colored metal finishes though. The most popular is our black metal finish, which makes for a striking lapel pin that features very bold lines. This lapel pin finish is very reminiscent of striking comic book pen and ink artwork.

Creating your own custom lapel pin is fun, easy and more affordable than you might think. – Let our team walk you through the process from design to final production.
