If you’ve spent much time perusing our site, you’re probably aware that soft enamel pins aren’t the only type of custom lapel pins that we offer. We’ve got so many options that sometimes, they can be difficult and overwhelming to choose from! We want to make sure that the pin you create and receive is as close as possible to your original vision, but trust us – we understand the confusion.

Just as soft enamel pins aren’t the only type of custom pins we offer, they’re also not the only option for you if you’re dead-set on having a color pin. Cloisonné pins are just as versatile as soft enamel. You can take advantage of all of our extra options and features (such as glitter, gemstones, and more) while keeping the integrity and the style of your pin.

Cloisonné pins are also known as hard enamel. Just like soft enamel, the difference lies in the coloring process. Once your mold is stamped out, the enamel coloring fills all the way to the edges. This gives you a surface that’s smooth to the touch, with no ridges. It almost looks like jewelry! It’s pretty fancy and very expensive-looking – but don’t shake your head just yet! All of our pin options are affordable, and our proofs come to you without commitment. If you’re interested, don’t be afraid to ask us to mock up a cloisonné example for you!

Because of the style of cloisonné pins, they’re most appropriate for corporations, memorial events, and professional clients – or if you just want a pin that looks classy and sleek! Our cloisonné pins are stylish, and the smooth surface is resistant to scratching.
