SOFT ENAMEL PINS
Soft enamel pins are made from a machine stamped badge. Enamel is then placed in the recesses of the badge and then baked to leave a slight dip which raises the metal above the enamel. By far the most common, and our most popular option of pin manufacture.
If you prefer to have a flush, smooth finish on your pins but don't need hard enamel, we can add a clear epoxy coating over the top. This will leave your pins smooth to touch and give the enamel an extra layer of protection.
HARD ENAMEL PINS
Hard enamel pins are made from a machine stamped badge. The stamped metal badge is filled with a colour enamel and then set. It is then polished flat leaving a smooth flat finish. This process ensures that hard enamel pins are one of the most durable manufacturing options.
Embroidered patches are patches with your design stitched into them. Generally attached by an iron-on backing, or by being stitched. The designs are generally more basic, but the finished quality is superior.
For more detailed designs or smaller text, we recommend our woven cloth patches.
WOVEN CLOTH PATCHES
Woven cloth patches are patches with your design woven into them. Similar to embroidered patches, woven cloth patches are generally less complicated in manufacture. There are no stitched areas like the embroidered patches, which means we can achieve higher detail in the image.
Perfect for detailed designs, and designs with smaller text.
